When you first see the result of a tired and worn surface having been treated with Nano-Clear, it’s impressive. But you might argue that your car or boat looks pretty much the same after a good cut and polish.
So this post is about explaining in detail HOW and WHY Nano-Clear is so much more valuable than a standard polish.
Linear vs. 3D molecules
Most surface polymers (coatings) are made up of a network of linear chains that have low crosslink density:
Nano-Clear’s network of molecules are 3D with an exponentially higher number of cross linked sites compared to the liner version:
When you compare the two, you can easily see which “structure” would be stronger. It is the density of this molecular architecture that makes Nano-Clear last so much longer than other surface protection products.
This “high crosslink density” provides valuable, functional surface properties including:
- extreme corrosion resistance
- scratch resistance
- chemical resistance
- UV durability
- low surface energy (repels water and aids the release of ice, dirt, brake dust and even concrete dust).
Testing Testing Testing
Initially used in more industrial environments, Nano-Clear was extensively tested in the United States before it was brought to New Zealand. The product has since been through a series of controlled tests by independent operators with the outcomes showing that Nano-Clear easily withstands ten years worth of environmental exposure.
BMW validated Nano-Clear coating to have the highest gloss levels and DOI of any clear coating system they had ever tested!
Testing results show that Nano-Clear has out-performed all other protective coating products on a range of aspects including QUV resistance, salt fog, water immersion, pencil hardness and abrasion resistance.
Here’s some testing results if you are interested!
This test data – when compared to other product’s data – proves that Nano-Clear is the world’s best all-round clear coat for resistance to scratches, chips, abrasion, chemicals, weathering, and more.
– Extreme abrasion and scratch resistance
– Surface hardness 6 times that of paint
– Maintains paint colour & gloss
– Prevents corrosion, fading and oxidation
– Reduces cleaning and maintenance by 60%
– Significantly extends the life of your asset.
Nano-Clear makes your gear look good again!
