Liquid NanoTint® – Solar Control Coating

A Zero-Waste, Plastic-Free Alternative To Solar Control Films

IMPROVES ENERGY EFFICIENCY WHILE REMAINING HIGHLY TRANSPARENT
Liquid Nanotint is a highly transparent paint-on solar control coating that is an ideal retrofit technology for building owners and managers looking to increase energy efficiency, improve thermal comfort, reduce glare and eliminate harmful UV damage.

WORKS IN SUMMER AND WINTER
With the ability to mitigate both radiant and conductive heat, Liquid Nanotint can effectively keep indoor environments cooler in summer and prevent heat loss in the winter.

SAVINGS OF 20%-40%
Building owners can benefit from increased energy savings that are modeled and validated by third-party testing labs.

EASY TO APPLY
Liquid NanoTint is easily applied with a conventional paint foam roller.

MORE DURABLE THAN WINDOW FILM
Unlike conventional window films, Liquid NanoTint will not peel, crack, bubble or fade over time lasting a minimum of 10 years. Liquid NanoTint meets the requirements for ANSI Z97 Thermal Testing (No bubbles or delamination after 16 hours of exposure to 100ºC).

MORE COST-EFFECTIVE THAN PLASTIC WINDOW FILMS
Liquid Nanotint is a cost effective alternative to dark window film or costly replacement windows.

PROVEN AND DEPENDABLE
Liquid Nanotint has been successfully applied to millions of square feet of windows in commercial buildings, hospitals, private homes, schools, universities and hotels.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the NanoTint coating work?

The specially formulated Solar Control Liquid Nanotint coating blocks up to 99.9% of ultra-violet (UV) light and absorbs up to 95% of Infra-Red (IR) light on the window, while still allowing for up to 85% visible light transmission.

How is DryWired® Liquid NanoTint applied?

Liquid NanoTint is a 2-component solution that, once mixed, has a pot life of 2 hours. The mixed solution is applied with a high-density foam roller. For each designated coating area the mixed solution must be applied evenly within approximately 4 minutes from start to finish. For more detailed information, please consult the application instructions for DryWired® Liquid NanoTint.

Is Liquid NanoTint applied on the interior or exterior of a glass surface?

DryWired® recommends coating the interior surface of a glass. Interior environmental conditions are more easily controlled resulting in optimum clarity and uniformity of the final fully cured coating.

Are special conditions required during the application process?

Yes, DryWired® recommends application at a temperature between 41-95°F (5-35°C) and relative humidity 70% or less. Air circulation should be minimized to mitigate contamination in the form of dust and dirt during the application process and for at least the initial 60 minutes time.

What is the coverage rate of the DryWired Liquid NanoTint?

Each high-density foam roller used will absorb and retain 30 grams of Liquid NanoTint solution. In addition to these initial 30 grams, every additional 30 grams of Liquid NanoTint solution will cover an area of 1m2 (10ft2).

What type of surface preparation is required?

All obvious dirt and contaminants should be removed with a paper towel. Masking materials should be used to protect adjacent surfaces and window fixtures.  DryWired® LNT Glass Primer is then used to clean the surface. For more detailed information, please consult the Standard Operating Procedure for DryWired® Liquid NanoTint.

How large of a surface area can a single person coat in the recommended 4 minute time frame?

One person can coat approximately 2m2 (21ft2) before encountering application challenges.

Can the Liquid NanoTint coating be applied by a method other than the high-density foam roller?

Not at this time.  Consult Drywired if you have another suggested process.

Are there any odors associated with the application of the product?

Similar to a household paint, there is an initial odor that lasts about 4 hours. We recommend vacating the premises during the application for a minimum of 4 hours. Once the coating has fully cured, no off gassing occurs as validated by independent third party testing. This documentation is available upon request.

What are the recommended safety procedures?

As with any material being used in the workplace or home, please refer to label for safety precautions. More detailed information is provided in the DryWired® Liquid NanoTint Safety Data Sheet which includes safe handling, storage, personal protective equipment, and disposal procedures.

Can the Liquid NanoTint coating be removed from glass surfaces?

Yes.

Is there a warranty on this product?

There is a warranty on this product. What is covered in this warranty is available upon request.

Can the NanoTint surface be cleaned with common cleaning supplies?

Yes, after it has fully cured for 14 days.  Abrasive materials should be avoided.

Can this coating be physically scratched?

Abrasion of the coating is possible. It is important to remember that the coating is only as sound as the substrate. If a material will abrade glass, it will abrade the Liquid NanoTint Coating.

Reccomended Product

DryWired® Glass Cleaner is a water-based cleaner for glass that utilizes aluminum oxide to create a clean surface to promote adhesion. The hydrophilic property that is present after cleaning indicates the glass is free of oils and other contaminants, ready for a nanocoating to be applied to the surface. This glass cleaner not only degreases, but also slightly abrades the surface, allowing for any light surface stains or watermarks to be removed. Recommended to use for surface preparation before application of DryWired Liquid NanoTint®, Glass & Ceramics,  Microporous and Perma-Clean Solar. Can also be used alone as a glass cleaner.
