Pioneers in nanotechnology
Improving the hygiene- and working-conditions and thus the quality of life of numerous people, while at the same time preserving the environment: These are the purposes that have driven us ever since 2002 to keep developing new applications of our NP® Liquid Glass technology and bringing them to market.
Through our many years of interdisciplinary research we have successfully perfected a sustainable, long-lasting, and effective process that can be applied in various fields.
Our developments are geared towards a long-term benefit: Be it saving water and reducing the use of polluting cleaners, or containing infections. Our application “Liquid Glass against hospital germs” for example – a research project that has been initiated by an MRSA-infection within our closest family circle – has been decorated with high-level science awards.
What is NP® Liquid Glass?
Our ultra-thin NP®-coating does neither change the surfaces optically, haptically, nor regarding their breathability. It cannot be perceived with the naked eye and it has been proven to be fully biocompatible, which means it can even be applied on and inside of the human body. This makes the variety of its applications nearly infinite.
NP® Liquid Glass is based on silicon dioxide – SiO2 in short – a substance that can naturally be found in quartz sand. It provides organic and inorganic, as well as absorbent and non-absorbent surfaces with super-phobic properties. Whether it’s water or oil, soil or microorganisms: adhesion is naturally reduced so significantly that cleanliness and hygiene improve permanently while the need for abrasive chemicals is decreased. This preserves the environment and reduces both time and financial resources.
Which surfaces can NP® Liquid Glass be applied to?
The short answer is: To nearly any surface!
Whether it’s natural stone, textiles, plastic, glass and ceramic, wood, metal, paper or paperboard, or even the human skin or plant seeds: Our technology is individually adaptable and due to its clinically proven harmlessness it can be applied in almost any imaginable scenario.
In which industrial sectors is NP® Liquid Glass deployed?
Let’s put it this way: “Impossible” is no part of our vocabulary!
Again and again, new fascinating application fields evolve within the scope of our research as well as during our collaboration with partners and customers.
Among others, we have realised successful projects in:
- health care
- building- and monument-protection
- hotel and catering
- solar energy
- wellness- and recreational facilities
… the list goes on and on and it most probably includes a branch that goes along with your request.
What does NP® Liquid Glass protect surfaces against?
The passive effectiveness of our alcohol- or water-based technology is highly effective against the adhesion of soil and microorganisms, water, oil, and other substances. Still, the breathability of the coated surfaces fully remains!
Beyond that, various active agents can be added to the product matrix. Just get in touch with us! Together we will find – or develop – the perfect solution for you.
Who are your solutions intended for?
We stand by the side of trading partners, industrial customers, as well as private users:
- Our private label product development adds a unique range of customisable solutions to your portfolio.
- Ready-to-use products in large containers as well as concentrates support your fabrication process towards a highly optimised product.
- Furthermore, we provide a variation of products for the application in your home, your private car, or in the office.
To see how our work has always attracted favourable attention of environmental and scientific awards, analysts, scientists, and the media reinforces our efforts to keep developing our technology.
We are looking forward to open up new application fields and we will be pleased to do so with you.
The green future of the packaging industry: How Liquid Glass marches into battle against plastic waste
The ban on many disposable plastic products such as plates, straws, cups and thin plastic bags is not the only reason why both consumers and manufacturers need to rethink. With a life span of more than 450 years, each piece of plastic waste adds to the daily growing problem we have to conquer, as the earth and the oceans are slowly drowning under gigantic piles and carpets of waste.
An environmentally friendly alternative that even made it into space
The perfect solution to the problem would be a natural product that is free of toxic substances, 100% degradable and able to coat paper, cardboard, or wood-packaging with a layer that protects the material against liquids, smells, or gases.
This is where the unique np-Liquid Glass technology made by the German company nanopool comes into play: READ MORE …
Re-validation of GREEN BRANDS quality seal
A star on the top of the new quality seal approves the successful first re-validation of the product series „Die grünen Helden®“ (The green Heroes) by Nanopool® as GREEN BRANDS Germany (2020/2021).
The first award for the time period of 2018/2019 was handed over at BIOFACH 2019:
nanopool GmbH has been awarded for „Die grünen Helden®“ as GREEN BRAND Germany 2018/2019
Highlight for nanopool GmbH at the BIOFACH 2019: the worldwide novel, water-saving product line for household “Die grünen Helden®” has been awarded as GREEN BRANDS Germany for the first time.
Saskia and Sascha Schwindt now received the certificate from Norbert Lux, the initiator and CEO of the GREEN BRANDS Organisation at the BIOFACH, world’s leading trade fair for biological food.
GREEN BRANDS awards trademarks of daily life, which embed responsible treatment of nature in their way of working and producing.
