nanotol 1

nanotol® sealant is a unique nano sealant for glass, plastic and virtually all surfaces of the car.
It works without any solvents on all smooth, non-absorbent finishes to repel fat, dirt, oil, and water.

Nanotol itself does not clean anything. It just prepares the surface, so all that is needed is plain water for cleaning with. The use of nano technology causes the water to  "bead up" on the coated surfaces. The water particles then remove the loose dirt, leaving a clean surface.

Once a surface is treated, you can then just wash or even rinse your car with clean water – There is no need for washing with any other detergent, chemicals or wax products. Plus, with Nanotol coated surfaces you do not have to clean your car or anything else as often. In fact, on average, Nanotol reduces cleaning times by more than 50%

But, apart from just cleaning your car, including all Automobile surfaces, Windscreens, Headlamps, the major interest for most readers of this article, may be concerning the maintenance of the key exterior safety and navigation modules and devices of the Autonomous car. The use of Nano technology will allow you to keep your safety critical areas, such as Lidar, Radar, Sensors and Cameras, much cleaner and for much longer.

How does Nano technology work?
Autonomous vehicle


Most normal surfaces are not even and have many irregularities, undulations, craters etc which get contaminated with debris, dust, dirt etc. It is normal, as it is extremely difficult to get any surface completely smooth and even, epecially when these surfaces are often being produced on a commercial basis. This can be best seen under a microscope. To clean surfaces, many of us use conventional cleaning products and often vigorous scrubbing, using machine or hand power. What we actually do over time with this kind of cleaning activity, is actually to make the surface even more irregular, causing even more diirt to gather and taking even more time to remove, in fact it becomes a vicious circle.


Sealing with nanotol actually fills the surface craters with a macropolymer. Then, Nanoparticles, that consist of fat, dirt, oil, and water repellents, are attached to these macropolymers. This debris and contamination then sits loosely above the nanotol coating, ready for easy removal with nothing more than clear water.
