Nano-coatings for textiles

Nano-coatings, based on silicon dioxide for textiles

This innovative water repellent nano-coating for textiles protects almost any type of textile from water, dirt, contamination and stains – whilst remaining totally invisible!
It will not affect the appearance, its ability to breath, its colour or handle and is easy to maintain

Nano-coatings are exceedingly water-resistant on outdoor materials; keeping them drier longer. Oil, coffee and other frequent stains belong to the past, if the material is treated with our protective products.

Examples of use:

  • Clothing
  • Household textiles (pillows, furniture), carpets
  • Suede/leather
  • Paper, cardboard
  • Wood

Product characteristics:

  • Strong hydrophobics and oleophobics
  • Strong non-stick properties
  • Excellent easy-clean effect for contamination and liquids
  • Protection of fibres from the infiltration of dirt

Other properties:

  • Food-safe (inert)
  • Invisible to the human eye (coating thickness: 100-150 nm)
  • Permanent (UV-stable, very resistant to abrasion)
  • Temperature resistant
  • Breathable
  • Simple application (do-it-yourself)
  • Washing and cleaning agent resistance

Advantages of easy-clean nano-coatings, based on silicon dioxide in comparison with competitive products

Permanence and longevity:

  • the UV-stability enables functionality for a number of years, approximately the lifetime of the coated surface
    Many competitive products are damaged slowly by sunlight

Abrasion-resistant easy-to-clean effect:

  • a solid chemical connection with the substrate enables an excellent abrasion and washing machine-resistance – the coating adheres to the fibres until it is destroyed by external influences.
    Many competitive products are not washing machine resistant.

Washing agent stability

  • The product is washing powder -resistant
  • Many competitive products must be reapplied after cleaning textiles


Simple do-it-yourself application makes it suitable for end-customers as well:

  1. Industrial: Application using the standard HVLP systems.
  2. Manual: Application by wetting textiles (spraying or dipping)

The nano-coating is completely networked and hardened after 24 hours. The easy--clean effect can only be tested after this hardening period

Nano-Care Deutschland AG distances herself from the colloquial term "nano-sealant" for glass, ceramic, textiles, stones and other surfaces. It was built by the market in the last 10 years and it is not correct from the technical point of view. Our nano-coatings are not sealing the surface – they protect it without impeding the breathability of the substrate.
