"To create innovative nanotechnology-based products that extend the lifespan of building materials."
Nanotechnology is the science of engineering and technology at the nanoscale. As a reference point, the thickness of a sheet of paper is about 150,000 nanometers.
Ranging from 40 to 60 nanometers in size, the nanoparticles we use are infinitely microscopic. This is what allows them to penetrate materials to protect them from the inside.
Unlike a coating or paint that creates a protective layer on the surface, our technologies act on the molecular structure of materials to modify and strengthen them.

As soon as possible.
The better the condition of your roof at the time of application, the better the effect of GoNano. GoNano should ideally be applied during the first 10 years of your roof’s life.
The loss of granules and the formation of stains on a roof are urgent signs you should protect it to slow down the aging process.
5 times less than a new roof.
Depending on the condition of your roof, the cost of the treatment is generally 15 to 20% of the full replacement cost.
5 to 15 years.
The treatments applied by our certified partners are guaranteed for a period that can vary according to the type and condition of the surfaces at the time of installation. The warranty is fully transferable in the event of the sale of your home.
Yes, for the better.
The treatment helps restore the original appearance of your roof, while modifying and improving it.
The average lifespan of a roof without treatment is 15 years. The GoNano treatment adds 10 to 15 years of life, equalling 15 to 20% of the cost of a roof replacement.
Once the treatment has penetrated the first layer of roofing (about two hours after application), rain makes absolutely no difference.
Science at the nanoscale.
One meter is equivalent to one billion nanometers. Nanotechnology is science, engineering and technology performed on particles ranging from 1 to 150 nanometers, which makes it infinitely small.
Even though nanoscience is fairly recent, in the Middle Ages nanoparticles were used to dye glass. Today, we use it in a scientific way to benefit from the superior properties of nanoparticles across multiple applications.
