nanoCure GbR is a German company working with high-performance coatings and additives with a nanotechnology background. Their cityCure concept is a product portfolio of solutions from all around the world, centered on the focus of solutions that are extremely beneficial for public maintenance and development. One of the products is a coating that can be used on walls inside and outside. The Air Purification coating purifies the air, helps cleaning stains and other sorts of organic and inorganic materials and dirt, and makes it easier to remove Graffiti.
cityCure’s airpurifying and selfcleaning coatings oxide and reduce all type of pollutants present in the air to less pollutant components: outside pollutants (VOC’s – NOx or smog-elements, SOx and VOC’s ), as well as indoor pollutants like acetaldehyde, formoldehyde, nicotine, present in the sick building syndrome. It removes up to 85% of most pollutants present in the air we breathe, indoors and outdoors.
It enhances the self-cleaning effect due to chemical break down of the pollutants attached to the surface (soot, graffiti) or due to a hydrofilic effect in which the pollutant is removed by the water. Stains will be removed without cleaning labour.
It is biodegradable, harmless for man and environment and lasts for up to 10 years. Imagine all objects you walk by daily can suddenly contribute to saving our planet…we think that is worth fighting for.
cityCure has won the 2014 MadridSmartLab Challenge in the category Quality of Life and we believe many others can benefit as well.
nanoCure has created other great products such as fuelCure, which utilises Nobel prize winning nano technology particles. The product can be added to any type of fuel in a car to reduce the CO2 emission and save fuel up to 15%. Have a look at their website for all the products: nano-cure.de
