What is Nanotechnology?

The word nanotechnology is used to describe anything that is 100 nanometers or less in size. So, we’re talking microscopic stuff here. Yet nanotechnology offers big rewards.


What is nanotechnogy? Madico U is here to help.

The terms nanotechnology and nano-particle are used quite frequently in today’s discussions of advanced window film technology. Nanotechnology is a term meaning anything that is 100 nanometers or less in size.

This is very small at the intercellular level. Many different substances can be broken down to nano-sized particles. In relation to window film, these particles are used as coatings to control solar energy.

Nanotechnology is one of the great evolving sciences in the world today. From biotech to aerospace, the implementation of nanotechnology has exponentially advanced many industries including window film.

Essentially, nanotechnology manipulates the solar spectrum. The solar spectrum includes UV Radiation, Visible Light, and Infrared radiation. Each of these components have an impact on heat gain.

Scientists, through molecular science, can engineer Nanoparticles (which measure 1 billionth of a meter) to identify and absorb vast amounts of infrared heat, practically all the UV radiation, and varying degrees of visible light. It’s a process that allows Black Pearl Nano Ceramic film by Madico to achieve a term referred to as spectrally selective.

Who knew that elements so small, could be such a big deal.
