Romeoville, Ill. - Nanophase Technologies Corporation
(Nasdaq: NANX) is launching a new line of innovative, nano-enabled products for the professional window cleaning industry
at the International Window Cleaning Association Convention in Reno, Nevada, January 27-30, 2010. NanoUltra™ Super Hydrophilic
Window Technology and NanoUltra™ Stain Remover and Polish provide advanced levels of cleaning, polishing and protection
for glass cleaning or window restoration applications, including commercial Class A, low- and high-rise buildings, residential
homes and post-construction projects.
Nanophase Technologies Corporation makes nanotechnology work for architectural
glass cleaning by leveraging its experience and success with nano ceria in high-tech optical polishing. "This revolutionary
product line gives professional window cleaners, window restoration specialists and building managers the opportunity to provide
the next generation of window cleaning technology that truly makes windows shine," said David Nelson, vice-president
of sales and marketing for Nanophase Technologies. "They also offer window cleaning companies the ability to reduce their
customers' overall window maintenance costs, while creating new revenue streams and improved profitability."
NANOULTRA™ SUPER HYDROPHILIC WINDOW TECHNOLOGY
NanoUltra™ Super Hydrophilic Window Technology keeps windows
cleaner longer by providing an invisible protection to the surface of glass. The NanoUltra™ products impart a protection
to the glass surface that is hydrophilic, allowing water to create a sheeting action that washes away dirt and grime. These
revolutionary products also accelerate drying time, resulting in spot and streak free windows for up to two years.
This high-performance product works using a two-step application method. First, one of two nano cerium oxide products is
applied as a pretreatment, to provide both a chemical and mechanical polishing mechanism to restore glass to its original
condition. Nanophase offers two pretreatment product options: NanoUltra™ Super Hydrophilic Window Pretreatment for non-stained
windows; or NanoUltra™ Stain Remover and Polish, which removes stubborn mineral deposits and corrosion. The NanoUltra™
Super Hydrophilic Treatment product is then applied, completing the glass protection application to give windows the ultimate
The results provide significant benefits to building owners and managers, professional window cleaners and
window restoration specialists. In addition to reducing liability, insurance and cleaning costs for the building owners, the
NanoUltra™ Technology offers up-sell and new business development opportunities for those servicing these patrons.
NANOULTRA™ STAIN REMOVER AND POLISH
New NanoUltra™ Stain Remover and Polish is a high-performance
product that removes stubborn stains and restores architectural windows to their original condition. Treatment with the product
produces a highly reflective surface that is free of stains and micro-roughness. Exterior windows not only glisten with a
high shine, but remain cleaner longer than windows that are cleaned with traditional stain removers.
As a stand-alone
product, NanoUltra™ Stain Remover and Polish easily removes traces of precast concrete, mineral deposits, oils, acid
rain and other everyday grime and buildup on windows. Offering a unique patent-pending formulation, NanoUltra™ Stain
Remover and Polish is safer to use than hydrofluoric and hydrochloric stain removal systems that can be dangerous to employees,
exterior surfaces and the environment.
