Where can Nanotechnology be found?

- Scratch/Water resistant cases use nanoparticles to make their surface smooth or repel water droplets

- The nanoparticles act as a molecular mesh; not allowing any substance to break through


- Pilkington Activ glass: the world's first self cleaning glass

- Nanocoating on glass breaks down and dissociates debris and dirt that accrue

- Rain or water washes the remaining material away 

- Perfect for windows for large buildings and windows on airplanes and trains

- Sunscreen, a common household appliance, contains Titanium Dioxide nanoparticles to deflect UV rays on a molecular level

- When UV rays are present, sunscreen acts as a personal molecular mesh

- Titanium Dioxide nanoparticles are known for protection against UV rays


- UV protected sunglasses utilize Titanium Oxide or Zinc Oxide nanoparticles

- These nanoparticles deflect UV rays, thus protecting eyes from the damaging effects of UV rays
