SiO2 Ultra Thin Coatings Use Natural Materials to Mimic Nature

Posted by:

lotus_leafMimicry of nature is the easiest way to reproduce superhydrophobic properties because nature has for millennia produced plants, insects and animals able to repel water. The most famous example is the lotus leaf.

SiO2 International Inc. uses natural silicon dioxide in their SiO2 technology to make superhydrophobic coatings just like nature does. SiO2 coatings form a surface structure similar to natural surface structures thus repelling water like many plants leaves, insects and ...

SiO2 International Inc. Experts in Historic Preservation

Posted by:

Historic and cultural monuments fabricated from silicate based materials are threatened by pollution, rain, weathering, bird fouling and grafitti. This can cause irreversible damage to these sensitive surfaces.

SiO2 Technology allows protected surfaces to breath, paramount to stone, concrete and wood. Our SiO2 Ultra Thin Coatings eliminate the absorption of rain water, the leading cause of monument deterioration.

Rain water absorption causes stone degradation by multiple actions including freeze-thaw cycling or mineral dissolution by environmentally acidified water. Rain can be a carrier ...

Invisible SiO2 Ultra Thin Coatings with Visible Affects

Posted by:

SIO2 Ultra Thin Coatings are undetectable as shown in images 1 and 2. Our SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) indicates no difference between the two but a distinction is clearly indicated by the super phobic behaviour of the droplet of water. (inset in image 2).

Image 2 is cotton after an applied SIO2 Industrial Textile Coating. Notice the cavities between the fibers remain open allow the human body to breath and water vapour to escape. SIO2 International Inc. Technology allows fabrics to ...
