Improving Efficiency and Saving Energy

NEI’s line of NANOMYTE® hydrophobic coatings provide durable protection from abrasion and liquids and can be applied to a variety of substrates, including plastics, metals, glass, painted surfaces, fabrics, and 3D printed parts.


SuperCN and SuperCN Plus are applicable to industrial condensers in general and, more particularly, surface condensers in power plants. The durable hydrophobic coatings can also be used to impart anti-fouling and easy-to-clean properties to the metallic surfaces of a variety of commonly used consumer products, such as kitchen appliances, shower heads, and hand rails, to name a few.


SuperCN is a durable, highly hydrophobic coating originally designed for metal surfaces, but can also be used on a variety of other surfaces, including plastics, glass, painted surfaces, and fabrics. The patent-pending coating has a unique combination of properties that includes hydrophobicity and oleophobicity, with specifically good adhesion to stainless steel, superior abrasion, and erosion resistance. While the coating was originally developed for promoting dropwise condensation on stainless steel condenser tubes to enhance heat transfer efficiency, it can also be used to impart anti-fouling and easy-to-clean properties to other metallic surfaces, such as brass and titanium.

NANOMYTE® SuperCN is available in liter or gallon sizes, as well as higher volumes by request.


SuperCN Plus is a functionally graded coating that imparts superhydrophobic properties to the underlying substrate while providing greater abrasion resistance compared to existing superhydrophobic coatings. Surfaces treated with SuperCN Plus force liquids to bead up and roll off, shedding water instantly and leaving the surface completely dry. SuperCN Plus can be applied to a variety of substrate materials, including plastics, metals, glass, painted surfaces, and fabrics.

NOTE: NANOMYTE® SuperCN Plus is currently available only through NEI’s in-house coating service.
