Our products, which are created and powered by nano technology, are used mostly around the house or on personal items. Therefore, many clients raise concerns about their safeness. In this article, we will help you to answer the important question: Is nanotechnology safe?
But first, what is nanotechnology?
According to the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS), “Nanotechnology (or nanoscience) involves materials that are extremely small and have dimensions roughly between 1 and 100 nanometres (nm). A nanometre is 1 billionth of a metre”. It is used in many industries such as agriculture, medical, automotive, and even cosmetics, etc.
Nano Protection products
As you might know from our brand name, our products are based on nanotechnology. More specifically, our products are water or ethanol (alcohol) based with an active substance, Silicon Dioxide (SiO2). SiO2 is a mineral found in nature, it is notably one of the main constituents of glass. The nanotechnology is shown in the thickness of the final coating which is nanometric in size, often around 100nm (nanometers).
So is nanotechnology safe? Are Nano Protection products safe?
To answer these questions, we must understand the difference between nanoparticles and nanotechnology. Nanoparticles are one of the types of nanomaterials. They are ultra fine particles, and could be unsafe for your health. Nanoparticles could be presented in some nanotechnological products, but not all nanotechnological products use nanoparticles. Therefore, the answer for the first question is it depends! For the second question, yes, Nano Protection products are safe. There are no nanoparticles in our products. The majority of our products passed European certifications, and are certified harmless to humans and animals, and are compatible with food contact. To resume, our Nano Protection products inherit the best part of the technology to assure efficiency and provide the best protetcion coating while remaining safe to use.
