Twenty three years of expertise


Experts in precision-formulated pure Nano technology, supplying industries and individuals to protect the lifespan of their valuable assets far into the future.

We are driven and passionate to become the leading distributor of hydrophobic and super-hydrophobic coatings and sealers, proudly manufactured in Southern Africa.

GL Coatings (Pty) Ltd gained combined ground-breaking knowledge and experience over the past 23 years in producing and marketing top quality nano technology coatings and sealants, allowing us to address underlying corrosion problems that was previously hidden behind layers of paint.

Our main goal is to offer ultimate corrosion protection for steel, metal, concrete, plaster, brick, wood & timber substrates.

As a result of this ground-breaking development; galvanizing of steel could be something of the past.
What does

NANO mean?

Let's put in to perspective:

A Sheet of paper is about 100,000 Nanometers thick.
A strand on human DNA is 2.5 Nanometers in diameter.
A human hair is typically 80,000 Nanometer in diameter.
A single Nanometer is one million times smaller than a millimeter. If you take 1000 of a millimeter you have one micrometer, or a single micron. If you divide that micron by 1,000, you will have a Nanometer.

Now we're in the Nano world...

How does nano relate to

THE industry?

Commercial products, although most applications are limited to bulk use of passive nano-materials. Examples include: Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles in products such as cosmetics, sunscreen and stain resistant clothing, and now...


HOW DOES NANO technology WORK?

  • ALL matter is porous! Some substrates however are less porous than others, thus the term microscopic pores comes into play.
  • Nano is of such a small scale that it can penetrate and fill these microscopic pores from the inside out.
  • GL Coatings Pure Nano has particles even smaller than water particles and it removes the oxygen and moisture trapped in the microscopic pores and is therefore 100% hydrophobic.
  • With our binder being able to bind the Nano particles to any matter’s surface in the microscopic pores, it forms a waterproof membrane.
  • PURE NANO REMOVES the corrosive elements in the substrate and does not MERELY HIDE THEM.
