is a revolutionary new Nanoscale invention that is non-toxic, transparent and can protect almost any surface against any damage from hazards such as water, UV radiation, dirt, heat and or microscopical bacteria. The material is also breathable, flexible and environmentally friendly, which makes it suitable for an enormous array of everyday products.
"The liquid glass spray (technically termed “SiO2 ultra-thin layering”) consists of almost pure silicon dioxide (silica, the normal compound in glass) extracted from quartz sand. Water or ethanol is added, depending on the type of surface to be coated. There are no additives, and the nano-scale glass coating bonds to the surface because of the quantum forces involved. According to the manufacturers, liquid glass has a long-lasting antibacterial effect because microbes landing on the surface cannot divide or replicate easily." physorg
Sprayed onto almost any surface, an invisible film 100 nanometers thick some 500 times thinner than a human hair, forms a completely impermeable layer. Central to the product's ubiquity is that it's available in a solution of either alcohol or water dependent on which surface needs to be protected. Spray-on-glass looks as though it will make most cleaning products obsolete, since it can be used on almost any surface in the home, and one spray is said to last a year.
"Several organizations are said to be testing the product, including a train company in Britain, which is using liquid glass on both the interior and exterior of the train, a luxury hotel chain, a designer clothing company and a German branch of a hamburger chain. " Telegraph
According to Nanopool, sometime in the near future, almost every product you purchase will be protected with a highly durable easy-to-clean coating.
"Liquid glass spray is perhaps the most important nanotechnology product to emerge to date. It will be available in DIY stores in Britain soon, with prices starting at around £5 ($8 US)." physorg
