As nanotechnology becomes available to the masses, it finds more applications in different industries including health, beauty and automotive.
Ceramic coating knowns as “nano-ceramic coating” is a new way to waterproof any surface. A ceramic polymer is liquid, and it is applied to the surface manually since that’s how it bonds itself to the factory paint. Its proponents claim that this substance could reduce oxidation and that it has similar effects as waxing.
It is used especially in the automotive industy. Every car needs a protective layer to prevent corrosion since all types of metal corrode eventually. Waxing can be helpful, but only for a short amount of time since waxes have a lower melting point compared to ceramic coating. Also, every ceramic polymer is highly hydrophobic. The reason why it is so efficient lies in the fact that ceramic does not cover the car’s factory paint but links itself with the paint molecules creating a protective layer. Also, ceramic coating products claim to be effective for up to 7 years.
For a coating to work on a whole spectrum of surfaces it is sometimes easier to apply it using a spray that has a minimal risk of damaging your original paint. However, it is not as efficient as a proper ceramic cover done by professionals. Sprays that are most frequently used are Mothers CMX, Turtle Wax spray, Modesta, or Hydroslick hyper wax.
Since nanotechnology has become more available to ordinary people, there is a myriad of interesting nanomaterials such as ceramic, activated carbon, and activated charcoal.
Activated carbon is typically used to filter water because it can reduce levels of impurities dramatically. The secret of its effectiveness is the fact that just 5 grams of it could be spread over an entire football field. This shows how small particles that are extremely porous successfully absorb contaminants and prove themselves helpful in a filtration process of any kind.
Activated carbon is also used in beauty, but often with another name: activate charcoal. It has been used recently for the beauty industry since it cleanses the skin removing dead cells and scums. Cosmetologists believe that activated charcoal is a great exfoliant and powerful pore purification tool that helps with balancing oily skin since it binds itself to impurities leaving the skin feeling fresh and clean. It can be added to skin care products like shampoos, soaps, micellar water, and toothpaste.
Allowing medicine to go directly into the bloodstream has never been more important. That is why we can now use transdermal patches to deliver a range of drugs directly into the bloodstream. Drugs that are used often are clonidine, fentanyl, or nicotine. The application is simple since all you need to do it stick the to the right place.
