Nanopaint

Definition - What does Nanopaint mean?

Nanopaint is a type of liquid paint that possesses a special type of suspended particles that give unique properties to the material they are applied on. The idea was developed in the early 2010s, and nanopaints are still in the development stage. They are used in high-end painting departments of luxury cars due to their excellent quality finish and also for achieving solutions to damage from nature and extreme weather conditions.

Techopedia explains Nanopaint

Nanopaints differ from ordinary paints in that they are capable of changing their properties according to conditions or upon a certain command. It is so far tested to be efficient in blocking harmful UV, IR and other types of radiation from directly affecting the surface. This process saves huge sums of money annually that would otherwise be spent repairing damage due to weather and external conditions.

Similarly, radio frequency (RF) waves can also be blocked or allowed depending on the wavelength by applying this paint. Particle nanotechnology can also be used in saving energy by absorbing the heat energy from sunlight.
