Nano- A chemicals for ceramic

As nano-coatings grow in popularity and availability in numerous sectors, the term “nano-ceramics” has entered the space – particularly in association with the automotive sector, where these terms are often interchangeable. So, what is nano-ceramic, what are their benefits and how do they sit within the nano-coatings category?
Nanotechnology was first researched in 1959 and became a practical engineering science in 1981. Over the last 40 years, it has been rapidly developed for use in a wide range of different industries such as aerospace, communications, and more recently antibacterial applications. In fact, many of us come into contact with nanotechnology coatings every day without realising.
