Nano Technology meets Paint Products in South Africa


Anti-Viral will change the way we think of paint. With trends and the world as we know it changing,  everyone is concerned about keeping their intimate spaces more secure and germ free, there is now a product range that will change every home, business owner and craft hobby enthusiast's outlook on paint being just paint.

NannoTEK SA in conjunction with a leading South African paint manufacturer are proud to Announce that they will be ready to market with the first Anti-Viral Moisture Resistant Range of paints  in December 2020. The Range is a Non-Toxic, Anti-Viral 100% Biodegradable Safe Range of Paint Products namely NannoCOAT which is an Interior Water Based Acrylic Paint in both Matte and Sheen. The Added Anti-Viral Protection through NannoTEK’s specially formulated Nano Silver Complex ensures the paint will kill all known viral, bacterial, fungi and yeast pathogens .With additional features of both the paint ranges,  NannoSPLASH and NannoCOAT being Hydrophobic (Fully Water Repellent), ensuring long lasting added protection against moisture.  The NannoSPLASH range is a Super Matte Acrylic Chalk Paint that is also Antiviral and Fully Water and Moisture Repellent as well making this a First of its kind in product for use. Our Nano Range of Paint products is revolutionary, being the first in offering Nano protection.

Danny Joubert CEO of NannoTEK, says NannoTEK's German Scientists have completed laboratory-based studies from International Universities, that have comprehensively tested the Nano Silver Complex in various applications and have confirmed it’s Anti – Viral and Bacterial properties, including Toxicity to humans and the environment.  NannoTek product is proven to be totally Non- Cytotoxic, which is non poisonous and poses no risk or poisoning to any living organism cells. This means it doesn’t damage or harm humans, animals and natural environments in any form.“ Protection of the NannoCOAT is therefore completely effective on all Interior Wall Surfaces and NannoSPLASH can be applied to almost any surface applications such as Wood, Metal, Plastic, Polystyrene, Glass and Ceramics. Making areas such as a babies Nursery, medical rooms and facilities and your homes perfectly safe, while protecting your family from viral and bacterial risks.” says Danny Joubert”. Further to this is the peace of mind knowing that as long as all pathogens are exposed to the paint surface such pathogens will be killed. This is due to the Nano Silver Complex embedded in the paints molecular structure, giving Biostatic surface protection. NannoTEK technology opens up various other applications, from Economic industries such as Retail, Medical, Construction, Travel and Tourism, Transport, Financial Services, Sanitization, Personal Grooming and the Food Industries. The opportunities and options are endless”.

Anti- Viral & Nano Silver. What does it do?

Using German developed Nano Silver Complex all NannoTEK's Anti- Bacterial and Anti-Viral products have over the years been tested by various Universities such as Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen / Nürnberg in Europe and the rest of the World. Proving the guaranteed kill rate of 99.9999% .Nano-silver is an effective killing agent against a broad spectrum of Gram- negative and Gram-positive bacteria, including antibiotic-resistant strains. Gram-negative bacteria include genera such as Acinetobacter, Escherichia, Pseudomonas, Salmonella, and Vibrio. Acinetobacter species are associated with nosocomial infections,  infections which are the result of treatment in a hospital or a healthcare service unit, but secondary to the patient’s original condition. Gram-positive bacteria include many well-known genera such as Bacillus, Clostridium, Enterococcus, Listeria, Staphylococcus, and Streptococcus. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria include strains such as methicillin-resistant and vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and Enterococcus faecium.

Recently, it has been shown that silver nanoparticles enhance the antibacterial activity of various antibiotics. The antibacterial activities of penicillin G, amoxicillin, erythromycin, clindamycin, and vancomycin against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli were increased in the presence of silver nanoparticles. Size-dependent antimicrobial activity of silver nanoparticles has been reported with Gram-negative bacteria and Gram-positive bacteria. Small nanoparticles with a large surface area to volume ratio provide a more efficient means for antibacterial activity even at very low concentration. Nano-silver is an effective killing agent against the majority of bacterial microorganisms.“

All testing has been done in Laboratories within strict SANAS Standards. That gives the Consumer 100% peace of mind using our products” says Danny Joubert. “As the world is changing lately, we have  developed products with specific applications and purpose.  Nano Technology especially, Nano Silver, has been developing now for many years. Our German Scientists and Chemists  have researched and developed these specialised products to  suit NannoTEK’s product offerings and unique requirements.”
