The company has for years worked on industrial multifunctional protective coatings for all surfaces and strives to continuously improve their products. In 2010 Nanoshine Ltd introduced Ceramic Pro – a series of products for the automotive, air and marine markets suited for surfaces such as paint, glass, alloy, fabric, leather and plastic.
What makes Ceramic Pro different is the cutting-edge technology based on ceramic molecular compounds (nanoceramics). The formula is world patented and it has taken ten years of research and testing to bring the product to where it is today, specialising in industries such as Automotive, Marine, Aviation and Industrial.
Ceramic Pro is also the only ceramic coating that is IMO (International Maritime Organization) certified as an organotin-free anti-fouling coating. The IMO – the International Maritime Organization – is the United Nations specialized agency with responsibility for the safety and security of shipping and the prevention of marine pollution by ships.
Ceramic Pro has been officially tested by “SGS”.
Once cured, the coating provides protection from extreme temperatures ranging from -50 to 2,200 Degrees Fahrenheit.
Oxidation & Corrosion Resistant
Ceramic Pro protects paint and metal from coming into contact with water and oxygen preventing oxidation and corrosion. The ASTM B117 Salt Spray Corrosion Test provides a controlled corrosive environment which has been utilized to produce relative corrosion resistance information for specimens of metals and coated metals exposed in a given test chamber. The chemical tests conducted by SGS and internally are: 5% salt spray for 350 hours with results of no visible damage, as well as 5% salt spray for 5000 hours with no visible damage (internal test).
The coating has 100% resistance against damaging contaminants and harsh chemicals such as solvents, alkaline and acidic chemicals. Once cured, the only way to remove the coating is through heavy abrasion. The chemicals tested and conducted by SGS include: JIS K5400 Alkali, Acids and Salt. This test method identifies how well the coating resists sodium carbonate, sulfuric acid and sodium chloride despite heavy exposure. Result: 5% Na2CO3 for 24 hours: No visible damage, 5% H2SO4 for 24 hours: No visible damage, and 5% NaCL for 96 hours: No visible damage.
Ceramic Pro has proven to be a perfect coating for surfaces that are exposed to expansion and deformation. The test conducted by the SGS is the Mandrel Bend Test (ASTM D522 test). This test is useful in evaluating the flexibility of coatings on substrates. Result: 0 mm of coating loss at 180° rotation.
The test conducted by SGS is the ASTM D3359 Adhesion test. This test covers procedures for assessing the adhesion of coating films to metallic substrates by applying and removing pressure-sensitive tape over cuts made in the film. Result: 5B (No coating loss when using strongest tape).
The UV protection keeps paint, rubber and plastic from aging. The tests conducted by SGS; ASTM G154-06 and ASTM D2244 determine color changes on surfaces exposed to UV rays. Result: No color change
A surface level of hydrophobia is dependent on the water contact angle of the surface. The higher angle the less dirt or liquid will attach to the surface. Ceramic Pro has a contact angle of at least 110+ degrees.
The coatings ability to conduct electricity in room temperature is extremely low. With higher temperatures the conductivity increases.
Ceramic Pro is a non-toxic product and the tests that have been conducted by SGS are: ASTM F963-08 (4,3,5) Heavy Metal Lead, Antimony, Arsenic, Barium, Cadmium, Chromium, Mercury, Selenium. Result: Not detected in all tested substances.
ECHA REACH test Ceramic Pro has been tested against 144 substances of very high concern (SVHC) screening. SVHC candidate list based on the publication by European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) on June 2013. Result: Not detected in all tested substances.
Ceramic Pro is VOC compliant at 5.2 g/liter.
