Among the most advanced technologies in the creation of products for urban furnishing, nanotechnological treatment stands out. In this article, we will explore what it entails and why LAB23 has chosen to incorporate it into its projects.
What is Nanotechnological Treatment?
Nanotechnological treatment involves the application of a permanent protective layer of a special wax-like substance on the entire product, creating a glossy layer that is impervious to external agents.
This treatment is highly appreciated in urban furnishing because it preserves the product from weathering and wear caused by human actions. Let’s delve into more details.
Nanotechnological Treatment for Wood
Wood is an increasingly popular material in the field of architecture and outdoor construction. It is favored for being a natural and eco-friendly material, but like any natural composite material, it is susceptible to environmental conditions and degradation processes.
To preserve its beauty and integrity, wood requires long-lasting protection against the effects of atmospheric agents.
A significant contribution to wood protection techniques comes from the latest developments in nanotechnology applied to materials protection.
These nanotechnological treatments for wood represent an innovative solution compared to other conventional protection methods. They create an invisible shield to ensure protection against common threats faced by the material.
This shield enhances the durability of wood without altering its natural characteristics. Nanotechnological treatment for wood can protect the material from UV rays, scratches, as well as attacks from molds, fungi, bacteria and parasites.
Nanotechnological Treatment for Glass
Similar to wood, glass is a highly valued and widely used material in modern construction. Its increasing popularity and use stem from the creation of larger and brighter spaces and, more importantly, its ease of maintenance when treated with nanotechnology.
Nanotechnological treatment for glass offers the following advantages:
- creates a hydrophobic barrier that allows water and liquids to slide off as droplets, without contaminating or wetting the material;
- prevents contaminants from depositing on the surface (such as limescale, dust, dirt, smog, etc.);
- provides anti-adhesive, anti-fingerprint and antistatic properties;
- ensures maximum transparency through multiple decontamination, polishing and deep cleaning steps;
- remains completely invisible, does not yellow and is highly durable over time.
LAB23 and Nanotechnological Treatments
For all LAB23 products, specific surface treatments are available, thanks to sophisticated technologies, to extend the life and aesthetics of the materials we choose.
Nanotechnological treatment makes LAB23’s urban furnishings even more resistant to atmospheric agents and easy to clean in the event of graffiti or other acts of vandalism. Using nanotechnological products also reduces the frequency of cleaning and routine maintenance of urban furnishings.
