Hydrophobic coatings to reduce maintenance costs and optimise efficiency.

Nanoshield Solar Coatings

Nanoshield Solar coatings offer multiple benefits, including prevention of dust, debris and bird-droppings accumulation, UV protection, easier cleaning, reduced water consumption, resistance to chemicals and industrial airborne contaminants and enhanced aesthetics. These properties lead to longer lifespan, enhanced efficiency, and improved return on investment.​ 


  1. Reduced maintenance costs: By preventing the build-up of dust and other contaminants, Nanoshield Solar coatings can reduce the frequency and extent of cleaning required for solar panels for both land-based and floating solar farms or concentrating solar mirrors and receiver tubes. ​ This can lead to labor cost savings, reduced water usage and less wear and tear of the robotic 
  2. Extended lifespan: Nanoshield Solar coatings can protect the surface of solar panels and metal frame from environmental factors such as dust, algae, bird droppings, dirty rain, and UV radiation. ​ This can help prolong the lifespan of all components, reducing the need for frequent repairs and replacements.
  3. Improved durability: Nanoshield Solar nano particles can fill in minute scratches and scuffs on older panels and effectively repair these flaws, leading to enhanced performance.
  4. Improved performance in challenging environments: In the desert regions, Nanoshield Solar helps maintaining the performance of solar panels and CSPs by preventing the accumulation of dust, particularly after intense dust storms. This minimizes the use of high-pressure water cleaning and reduces water consumption. ​Solar farms located in industrial areas, on the path of migrating birds, or in coastal areas, can accumulate significant amount of airborne soot and dust, bird droppings and algae.  Nanoshield Solar significantly reduces these accumulations and facilitates faster and easier cleaning.
  5. Hydrophobic coatings help clean panels by creating a surface that repels water: ​When water meets a hydrophobic-coated surface, it forms droplets that roll off the surface, carrying away any dust or dirt particles that may be present. ​ This self-cleaning effect is due to the high contact angle between the water droplets and the hydrophobic surface, which prevents the droplets from spreading out and sticking to the surface. ​ As a result, when it rains or when the panels are sprayed with water, even at low pressure,  the water droplets remove dust and dirt from the surface, keeping the panels clean and maintaining their efficiency. ​

FAQs – NanoshieldTM Solar-S Coating

Nanoshield™ Solar S Premium Coating is a patented coating with oleophobic, hydrophobic, anti-static and antimicrobial properties.

Nanoshield™ Solar S Premium Coating provides  safe and effective protection for your solar panels.

Due to the oleophobic, hydrophobicity, anti-static and antimicrobial properties, our patented coating reduces dust adhesion, reduces buildup of liquids, dirt, bird droppings, bacteria, mould, fungal growth and other contaminants that can accumulate on the surface of solar panels.

The benefits of using Nanoshield™ Solar S Premium Coating are as follows:

  • Protects your solar panel from dust adhesion, organic soiling, liquids, dirt, bacteria, mould, and fungal growth;
  • Reduces cleaning costs, cleaning time and the water consumption;
  • Reduces cleaning frequency;
  • Makes cleaning easier and faster;
  • Prevents premature deterioration of your solar panels;
  • Extend longevity of your solar panels; and
  • Improves electricity yield from your solar panels by up to 5%, resulting in significant economic benefits.

  • Concentrated Solar Plants

24 hours

If the panels are less than 3 years old, cleaned regularly in the past, and do not show signs of excessive pitting or algae deposits, one coat will suffice, otherwise two coats.

All the ingredients used in the Nanoshield™ Solar S Premium Coating are non-toxic.

1 Litre bottles, 5 litre bottles and 25 Litre bottles.

An unopened bottle of Nanoshield™ Solar S Premium Coating lasts up to 2 years when it is stored in cool and dry place.

1 litre of Nanoshield™ Solar S Premium covers 100 square meters.

Standard Application Procedure


This Standard Application Procedure provides guidance for applying the NanoshieldTM Solar S solution to solar panels.

Equipment and Materials

  1. NanoshieldTM Solar S solution
  2. Temperature gauge
  3. Microfiber Cloth (No cordless buffer required)
  4. Personal Protective Equipment

Potential Hazards

Although Nanoshield-S is classified as a non-hazardous material to humans and animals, as a general practice, physical and health hazards associated with the NanoshieldTM Solar S solution should be noted. For detailed information, refer to the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for NanoshieldTM Solar S.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Work involving NanoshieldTM Solar S must adhere to appropriate attire guidelines.

  • Safety mask
  • Chemical-resistant gloves
  • Safety goggles

Cleaning Procedure

Clean the solar panel thoroughly using the recommended method suggested by the solar panel manufacturer and allow the panel to dry completely. Depending on the level of dirtiness, use a commercial-grade glass cleaner, preferably water-soluble, to remove any dirt, grime, grease, watermarks, etc., from the panel surface. It is important to ensure thorough cleaning of the panel surface before applying NanoshieldTM Solar S coating for optimal results and effectiveness.

NOTE: NanoshieldTM Solar S is best applied when the surface glass temperature of the panel is below 35o Celsius. Ideally, the coating application should be done before 8 am or after 6 pm when panels are not under direct sunlight overhead.

Application Procedure of NanoshieldTM Solar S Solution

  1. Shake the bulk container vigorously before use and pour NanoshieldTM Solar S solution onto a microfiber cloth.
  2. Wipe the solution-coated microfiber cloth across the panels in horizontal and then vertical passes. Ensure even coverage for a clear and glossy finish.
  3. Allow the coating to dry to touch, approximately 3-4 minutes.
  4. For optimal performance, particularly for older and weathered panels, it is recommended to apply two coatings. If a second coating is required, repeat the process as described above.

Important Note: For best results, follow Nanoveu’s SAP instructions and guidelines. Comply with all regulatory requirements and safe work practices relevant to your location.

Post-Application Procedures

  1. Waste material should be disposed responsibly after use.
  2. It is strongly recommended to disassemble the sprayer and do a thorough washing to prevent clogging. Immerse all disassembled components in an acetone solution overnight to effectively remove all residual substances on the nozzles and connecting parts of the sprayer.
  3. Dispense an adequate quantity for intended application and store the remainder at room temperature to ensure maximum shelf life specified on the product label. Any unused liquid poured out must be utilized within one month.
