New polish looks to lotus flower for inspiration

July 25, 2012

HACKENSACK, NJ — Nanotech WOW!, a polishing product released here by Helmar Distributors, uses the “Lotus Effect” to protect a variety of vehicle finishes, according to a press release.

The July 21 release stated that lotus flowers were observed because they have very high water repellence in their leaves. This “Lotus Effect” is a physical-chemical phenomenon that can be emulated using physical-chemical variables.

Small nano particles, or polymers, are used in car and boat polishes and waxes today. The nano particles are so fine they bond to and penetrate any surface like no other products on the market. WOW! uses this technology to provide surface protection in an environmentally friendly way.

Nanotech WOW! can be used on cars, jet boats, jet skis and snowmobiles. The release noted that the product makes maintenance easier by sealing the surface and creating an invisible protective barrier that does not wear off.

WOW! also provides UV protection and reduces friction for better mileage and less drag.
