Types of Coatings

To meet the diverse needs of our customers, we produce more types of FN ® coatings

These aqueous mineral suspensions with a high photocatalyst content have been optimized for maximum efficiency and safety. They serve mainly as coatings to create multifunctional protective surfaces which, with the help of light energy, actively and for a long time: 

  • cleans its surface and surrounding air from dangerous pollutants and allergens
  • cleans itself and prevents dirt from settling
  • prevents the deposition of microorganisms (viruses, bacteria, fungi, algae, yeasts and fungi)
  • protects the substrate on which they are applied from the destructive effects of ultraviolet radiation, which is contained in sunlight

To ensure full functionality in interiors, it is necessary to ensure the access of ultraviolet radiation with a minimum intensity of 0.2W / m  to the created FN NANO surface.

We recommend it for white and light pastel shades, which will keep it clean for a long time and will significantly reduce the heat load of buildings and urban agglomerations.

The coatings do not contain any VOCs or organic substances and do not release anything into the environment. 

We have developed a special FN NANO ®  AQUA suspension for water purification . It is a liquid preparation that is added to pool water and natural ponds. It is designed to reduce the consumption of pool chemicals while maintaining good quality and crystal clear appearance of the water in the pool.


FN®1 Functional Coating

The functional coating FN ® 1 has been specially developed for the protection of concrete, on the surface of which the coating layer is attached. It is designed for exterior and interior use. It can also be applied to surfaces made of raw masonry, stone, ceramics, plaster, and common building materials that do not repel water. It differs from FN ® 2 and FN ® 3 coatings by higher transparency. Its use is therefore suitable for surfaces such as exposed concrete, where it is interested to acknowledge the structure of the substrate. FN ® 1  suitable as a base layer under FN ® 2 for anti-mold applications on the wall. We also supply FN ® 1  in color shades. Functional coating FN ® 1 serves to create effective and long-term functional nanotechnological protection of surfaces against the deposition of atmospheric dirt and against their attack by fungi, algae and other microorganisms . The high content of titanium dioxide in the coating layer guarantees extremely effective protection of the substrate against “sagging” of paints and disintegration of the binder due to UV radiation . FN ® 1 can also be used as an effective low-cost technology for cleaning air from a wide range of pollutants.

  • 99.9% protection against UV radiation
  • There is no fading of colors and disintegration of the binder
  • Long-term protection without additional maintenance
  • Protects surfaces against sticky dirt
  • Super strong self-cleaning effect
  • High vapor permeability and breathability
  • Protects against the deposition of mold, algae and other microorganisms
  • It prolongs the life of facades and significantly cools their surface

It maintains high efficiency for a long time with a 10-year guarantee on vertical surfaces.


FN®2 Functional Coating

The functional coating FN ® 2  has been developed and optimized for the functions of air purification and protection against the deposition of microorganisms. It is designed for exterior and interior use. It can be applied to concrete surfaces of raw masonry, stone, ceramics, plaster, as well as to common building surfaces that do not repel water. It differs from FN ® 1 coatings by significantly lower transparency and higher efficiency of air cleaning. We therefore recommend its use especially in applications aimed at air purification or protection against microorganisms. FN ® 2 coating is used as a highly effective low-cost air cleaning technologyfrom a wide range of pollutants and unpleasant odors (recommended especially for indoor use). It is an effective and more advantageous alternative than conventional air purification technologies (air purifiers) . The functional FN ® 2 coating also serves to create effective and long-term functional nanotechnological protection of surfaces against the deposition of atmospheric dirt and against their attack by fungi, algae and other microorganisms and against viruses and bacteria . It is therefore also used as an effective technology to reduce the risk of transmitting infectious diseases . The high content of titanium dioxide in the coating layer guarantees extremely effective protection of the substrate on which FN ® 2 is applied before the “embossing” of the colors and the disintegration of the binder due to UV radiation .

  • 99.9% protection against UV radiation
  • There is no fading of colors and disintegration of the binder
  • Long-term protection without additional maintenance
  • Protects surfaces against sticky dirt
  • Super strong self-cleaning effect
  • High vapor permeability and breathability
  • Protects against the deposition of mold, algae and other microorganisms
  • It prolongs the life of facades and significantly cools their surface

It maintains high efficiency for a long time with a 10-year guarantee on vertical surfaces.

ECO technology – without the use of chemistry.


FN®3 Functional Coating

The functional coating FN ® 3 was developed for maximum efficiency of the air cleaning function (it achieves the highest photocatalytic efficiency of all FN ®  coatings ). It is designed  for indoor use, where it is an effective alternative to conventional technologies for air purification . Effectively removes a wide range of pollutants and odors. It can be applied to concrete surfaces of raw masonry, stone, ceramics, plaster and common water-repellent building surfaces. As a suitable application procedure, we recommend applying the first coat of FN ® 2 suspensions and the other two coats with FN ® 3. Compared to FN ® 1 and FN ® 2, FN ® has3 relatively high coverage. We recommend applying the coating to the ceiling and surfaces where there is no risk of damage by abrasion and where it ensures maximum effectiveness. When using FN ®  for indoor air cleaning, FN ® 3 coatings are usually applied to the room ceiling and a 1.5 m wide strip of vertical walls from the ceiling and FN ® 2 coating is applied to other surfaces . FN ® 3 coating cannot be colored, therefore comes in white only.

The functional coating FN ® 3 also effectively and in the long run effectively eliminates viruses and bacteria, fungi, algae and other microorganisms. It is therefore also used as the  most effective technology to reduce the risk of disease transmission .

  • Clean air from allergens, viruses, bacteria, toxic substances and odors
  • Reduces the risk of transmitting infectious diseases, reduces the risk of asthma
  • Highly effective against fungi and microorganisms
  • Prevents the deposition of viruses and bacteria

FN®AQUA:

FN ®  AQUA is a special mineral preparation that is added to pool water, where it serves to reduce the consumption of chemical products and without chemical maintenance of garden ponds and aquariums.

FN ®  AQUA is the result of our many years of research and development in the field of using the photocatalytic phenomenon to purify water from harmful substances and to protect against the overgrowth of microorganisms. The minerals contained effectively prevent the overgrowth of unwanted microorganisms in the water. They make it possible to reduce the amount of chemicals used to maintain pool water while maintaining its good quality. The effect is activated by daylight or by a UV lamp.

The use of FN ®  AQUA is completely safe for higher organisms (it only affects microorganisms). The minerals contained in the suspension do not remain (unlike the remnants of chlorine chemistry) in the pool water, but are gradually trapped in the sand filtration or filtration system.

FN ®  AQUA can be used simultaneously with both chemicals and active oxygen (ozone). The product is designed for private pools, ponds and aquariums (for fresh and salt water).

  • Gentle on human skin – suitable for allergy sufferers, small children and people with sensitive skin                                             
  • Prevention of the growth of green algae, bacteria and fungi
  • Actively eliminates toxins, grease and dirt
  • It works at any pH
  • Significantly reduces the use of pool chemicals, in the case of ponds completely replaces it
