PROTECTIVE-NanoTech is an easy-to-clean sanitizing protective coating for metal surfaces, painted metals, resins, gelcoats, composite materials, ceramics and polymers.

It protects surfaces from bacteria and viruses by reducing their adhesion and proliferation.

The sanitized action of PROTECTIVE-NanoTech is due to the combination of two effects: the action of the nanoparticles (both in the presence of light, due to the photocatalytic effect, and in the dark) and the reduction of surface porosity (reducing the proliferation sites of bacteria and viruses).

The presence of nanoparticles in the coating guarantees a sanitizing effect that is regenerated every time the surface is cleaned, for the entire life duration of the coating (at least 2 years), even on surfaces that can be walked on.

The compactness of the coating, the uniformity and the high adhesion on the surfaces, prevent the nanoparticles contained from migrating outside of the coating and being released or dispersed in the environment.

PROTECTIVE-NanoTech does not contain biocides, heavy metals and does not release metal ions harmful to humans and the environment.

The Electron Microscope image recorded on a steel surface shows the coating created by PROTECTIVE-NanoTech (compact part darker in the upper part of the image, with a thickness of about 3 microns) and the presence of nanoparticles dispersed inside the coating itself (lighter whitish spots visible inside the dark coating).

The surfaces treated with PROTECTIVE-NanoTech have shown an excellent sanitizing action tested according to the ISO 22196 standard. The table below shows the results obtained using various bacteria.

SAMPLE R Factor for bacteria
Escherichia Coli Staphylococcus Aureus Salmonella Typhimuriom Listeria Monocytogenes Enterococcus Faecalis Enterobacter Aerogenes
Nanocomposite Protective Coating 5.00 3.23 2.65 5.00 2.41 5.00

The numbers shown in the table are related to the effectiveness in reducing bacterial proliferation on the surface coated with PROTECTIVE-NanoTech: by convention, we can consider a surface effective against bacteria if R factor is higher than 2.

Before applying the product, make sure that the surfaces are dry and clean.

PROTECTIVE-NanoTech is compliant with the European regulation n. 10/2011 for food contact.



PROTECTIVE-NanoTech is supplied in:

  • 250ml aluminum cans
  • 1L aluminum cans

Storage and shelf life

PROTECTIVE-NanoTech must be stored in the original packaging in a dry and cool place (with a temperature not higher than 25°C and not lower than 5°C). In this way the product can be stored for 12 months.

Usage tips

PROTECTIVE-NanoTech is a ready-to-use product (do not dilute with solvents or other liquid substances).
It can be applied by spray, using HVLP (High Volume and Low Pressure) or AIRLESS system, or by hand (fleece or microfiber cloth).


  • DO NOT apply in windy conditions
  • DO NOT apply if the surface is damp or wet (the dew point must NOT be on the surface to be treated)
  • DO NOT apply on surfaces that are too hot or exposed to the sun, to prevent the solvent from evaporating too quickly and creating unwanted accumulations of product
  • Environmental conditions: temperatures between 5°C and 30°C and relative humidity (RH) not exceeding 80%.


  1. release (higher thickness for high mechanical resistance):
    • apply the product by hand using a microfiber cloth or short-bristled fleece (pay attention to the formation of any scratches or halos), or by spray with a HVLP or AIRLESS system, with a gun with 0.5-0.8 mm nozzle and pressure 1-1.5 bars. In this way, thicknesses of up to 5 microns can be obtained;
  1. stretched (less thickness, to seal the porosity on the surfaces):
    • apply the product by hand using a microfiber cloth, let the solvent evaporate for 1-2 minutes and then wipe the surface with a dry and soft microfiber cloth, with circular movements often changing the drying side and the cloth itself;

In the case of surfaces that can be walked on (ceramic or stoneware), use a polishing machine fitted with a white nylon disc for natural surfaces or a more absorbent fiber disc for polished, smooth or lapped surfaces:

  • proceed by treating small surface areas to prevent inhomogeneities caused by excessive evaporation of the solvent. In this way a shiny surface is obtained with coating thicknesses of less than 2 microns, capable of sealing porosity and therefore protecting against dirt, maintaining the same finish as the starting surface.

ACTIVATION TIMES: at room temperature the product is dry to the touch after 120 minutes; if heated in a painting oven at 80°C after 60 minutes.

The product reaches complete cross-linking and guarantee optimal surface properties, after 5-7 days at room temperature.

COVERAGE: PROTECTIVE-NanoTech has a coverage of 70-80 m2/kg for smooth surfaces; 40-50 m2/kg for porous surfaces.

PROTECTIVE-NanoTech contains solvent: Butyl Acetate.

ATTENTION: consult the product Safety Data Sheet.
