A surface is not simply the physical division between an object and its environment; it fulfils a range of functions of its own which often play a crucial part in product design. Surfaces are supposed to feel good to the touch and to look good for as long as possible, be easy to maintain and not be spoiled by dirt, water stains or fingermarks.
Traditional coating materials often do not stand the test of the increased demands made on materials today. In recent years, however, advances have been made using methods ascribed to nanotechnology and this is where UGC® comes in.
Providing one answer to the question where is nanotechnology used today, the following gives a short overview of the basis of these structures, the processes involved in their manufacture, the areas where they can be used, and the effect they have on the environment and human health.
UGC® is a solar control nanocoating ideal for single-pane glass and polycarbonate surfaces.
Applied like paint, Liquid UGC is capable of blocking 99.9% of Ultraviolet (UV) rays, up to 95% of Infrared (IR) rays and maintaining up to 85% Visible Light Transmittance (VLT).
Through the combination of solvent-borne metal-oxide nano-particles and an inorganic adhesive binder, UGC forms a 10 micron thick self-levelling clear coat that bonds directly to glass and polycarbonate surfaces.
Unlike conventional window films, UGC will not peel, crack, bubble or fade over time lasting a minimum of 10 years. In addition, UGC can be applied to curved glass, historic building windows, skylights and textured glass surfaces. With the ability to mitigate both radiant and conductive heat, UGC can effectively keep indoor environments cooler in summer and prevent heat loss in the winter all while allowing you to benefit from the natural daylight gain.
UGC is easily applied with a paint roller or sprayer which makes it the ideal choice for retrofitting existing inefficient single-pane glass buildings without having to spend money on costly replacement “energy efficient” window assemblies.
In the United States alone, up to 40% of all buildings are comprised of un-insulated single-pane windows.
Billions of square feet of windows are responsible for over 25% of the heat transfer in structures, UGC presents a non-invasive, cost-effective alternative to flimsy and dark window film or costly replacement windows while delivering year-round energy savings in any type of climate.* Results may vary depending on type of glass and coating application thickness.
