Formed in 2000, Nanovations Pty, Ltd of New South Wales, Australia is the largest manufacturer of advanced glass coatings and preparation solutions in Australia. The company is now exporting more than 95% of its products to more than 40 countries worldwide.
The technology has many applications, from automotive to large scale buildings. In 2004, the first large building was treated with Nanovations advanced glass coating. This landmark building, located right on Sydney Harbour has more than 54,000 square feet of glass. Since its application, the coating is still performing well and has not required any reapplication.
Nanovations Pty, Ltd, of Australia has partnered with Search Automotive Technologies, LLC based out of Riviera Beach, Florida, to manufacture and distribute these advanced glass coatings throughout North America.
Vision Protect™ is a nanotechnology product specifically formulated and tested for automobile glass. The coating is extremely durable, long lasting, and works as a superior repellant for rain, snow, dirt and salt. Unlike traditional soft glass coatings on the market that cover the surface of the glass with a thin layer of non-stick chemicals, the Nanovations glass treatment technology follows the contours of the glass right down to the nanolevel with a hard inorganic layer.
Vision Protect™ represents the Next Generation in windshield glass treatment with the following benefits:
- Easy and fast to apply
- Repels water, dirt, dust, salt, ice and snow.
- Easy to clean, self-cleaning effect
- Reduces Glare and improves night vision in bad weather
- Last up to two years on windshields
- Published testing by an accredited US laboratory
Research studies have concluded that a hydrophobic coating applied on an automotive glass surface can improve a driver’s visual perception by over 30% and improve their response time by 25%. At a speed of 43 miles per hour, this means one can stop their vehicle 60 feet earlier, than one being driven without a hydrophobic treatment that is still effective.
