A special thanks goes out to Dr. Kiernen with the Bellmore Merrick School District in New York for nominating NanoTouch for the District Administration Top 100 Award. District Administration is the most widely received and most regularly read publication for K12 district-level school leaders nationwide.
It's no surprise that administrators and environmental services managers are taking steps to improve the cleanliness of their schools, for both students and teachers, by adopting self-cleaning NanoSeptic® surfaces in and out of the classroom.
Several preschools and daycares have benefited recently from the generosity of a community bank. SelectBank, in Forst Virginia, recently purchased several hundred NanoSeptic place mats and began outfitting regional classrooms as part of a program to give back to the community.
ATLANTA—AloStar Bank of Commerce has awarded Forest, Va.-based NanoTouch Materials with its Rising Star Award. NanoTouch was selected for the Rising Star Award based on a referral from its banker, Select Bank in Forest, Va. Select Bank is a community bank that provides financial services to small and medium-sized businesses, professionals and individuals.
"NanoTouch Materials is a classic example of how two smart entrepreneurs have created a product that is a game changer for key industries," said Mike Thomas, CEO of Select Bank. "They offer a unique and innovative product line that has done well on the local level, but needed the capital to help them transition onto a national platform. Every bit of support will help them with this goal."
While the NanoSeptic surface has self-cleaning properties, being super hydrophilic makes it an even more effective self cleaning surface. This type of nanotechnology is being developed for a variety of applications. In this TED Talk, Mark Shaw demos Ultra-Ever Dry, a liquid-repellent coating that acts as an astonishingly powerful shield against water and water-based materials. At the nano level, the spray covers a surface with an umbrella of air so that water bounces right off.
