High Repellent Coating

Hirec® (High Repellent Coating) is a specially formulated coating that creates a highly water-repellent surface, resulting in remarkable self-cleaning properties. This coating effectively prevents the build-up of ice, snow, water, and dirt on surfaces where it is applied.

The Hirec series is specifically designed to reduce ice and snow accumulation on important components such as antennas, wind turbines, and crucial infrastructure. In the field of telecommunications, Hirec plays a key role in preventing signal loss during heavy rain.

 

NTT Advanced Technology Corporation (NTSN) has developed and launched a new environmentally friendly solution called Hirec® 300-W. It is a water-based superhydrophobic coating that offers advanced repellency properties.

Ultra-Ever Dry®

Ultra-Ever Dry is an innovative coating designed to protect electronics and electrical components from moisture, water, oil, and contaminants. This cutting-edge solution prolongs the lifespan of electrical circuitry, such as windings, connections, contacts, and switches, by preventing moisture accumulation and intrusion.

This versatile coating is ideal for a variety of hard surfaces that require protection, ensuring they remain dry, corrosion-resistant, uncontaminated, and clean.

One of the key benefits of Ultra-Ever Dry is its rapid curing time, making it suitable for on-site treatment to promptly address operational issues.

For scenarios where increased resistance to wear and UV exposure is needed, we recommend exploring alternative coatings like HIREC®, Gentoo™, or PCS for superior and long-lasting protection.

Optimize solar systems

Our technology has demonstrated the potential to enhance production by up to 10% in European conditions. One of the critical factors in achieving optimal yields from photovoltaic modules is keeping solar cells clean and free from snow or ice. Our specialized coating improves light transmission to the PV cells, simplifies maintenance, and significantly reduces cleaning requirements. As a result, your solar energy system will experience a boosted yield.

Our SolarEX coating is specifically designed to create a durable and "non-stick" (hydrophobic and oleophobic) protective layer on the exterior surfaces of solar panels. This coating effectively prevents contaminants, such as dust, bird droppings, and pollen, from adhering to the solar cells. These contaminants can be effortlessly washed away by rain showers.

The hydrophobic effect of the coating eliminates the need for harsh cleaning agents while enhancing the solar cells' resistance to wear and tear. This translates to fewer repairs and replacements of faulty components, leading to improved performance and increased financial savings within your solar system.

UAVs

UAVs and rotor blades face significant challenges in dealing with atmospheric icing, which can lead to operational limitations caused by ice, snow, and rain. Many current solutions rely on electricity to mitigate these issues, resulting in technical complexities, increased energy consumption, and heightened digital signatures.

At NanoTech Solutions Norway AS, we take a different approach by exploring preventive measures that do not alter the fundamental properties of the UAV or require additional technical solutions. Our aim is to effectively eliminate ice formation and liquid accumulation on exposed parts, including electronics, of the UAV.

We have conducted rigorous testing and have demonstrated the suitability of several of our technologies, such as Hirec and Ultra-Ever Dry, as proactive protection against ice formation and various weather-related challenges in UAV operations. These technologies offer preventive measures that address the atmospheric icing issue without compromising the performance or integrity of the UAV.

By implementing our solutions, UAV operators can overcome the limitations caused by icing, ensuring safer and more efficient operations even in challenging weather conditions.
