In addition to having self-cleaning properties, the surfaces coated with this nanopaint will have anti-bacterial characteristics too.
In an interview with Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council's reporter, CEO of Pishgaman Fanavari Asia Company Sajjad Dibayee Asl stated that the experience of the Municipality of Tehran in using traffic nanopaints in various projects and the advantages of nanopaints over other types of paints were the main reasons for the application of such nanopaints in Niyayesh Tunnel.
According to Dibayee Asl, over 5 tons of nanopaints have been used in the painting of the northern lanes in Niyayesh Tunnel due to their high resistance against chemical pollutants and also due to their desirable light reflection.
Sinadoxosome anti-cancer drug, nano-inks for printers, traffic and insulating nanopaints, and silvosept wound bandage were among other the products presented in the expo.
More than 10 companies active in the field of nanotechnology are present in the Color Technology Incubator, and about six products have so far been presented to the market by these companies which are mainly active in the field of color sciences such as various types of industrial coatings including insulators, nanopaints, antibacterial coatings and vehicle body coatings.
Moreover, the new paints can compete with their conventional counterparts in terms of price and quality and so far they have gained approval from municipalities and domestic contractors."This product and its synthesis equipments meet the world's contemporary standards of traffic paints," Dibayee went on to say."Through tireless efforts, the company has produced and offered technical nano traffic paints which reduce costs and improve efficiencies in public spaces traffic painting," Dibayee added.Siami, the mayor of Naqadeh city, admired the high durability of the nanopaints, and said, "All in all, we are pleased with the project in terms of its engineering and costs.
