Liquid Glass explained by Professor Nanostein

About Professor Nanostein

Professor Nanostein is the inventor and creator of Crystalusion Limited’s Liquid Glasscoatings. He is a German scientist who currently lives in the United Kingdom working incessantly to help bring to light the benefits and characteristics of Liquid Glass. 

Question. What is Liquid Glass?

Professor. Put in its simplest form Liquid Glass is just glass as we all know it but suspended in liquid form at a molecular level. In order to keep this glass in liquid form it needs to be carried in either water or ethanol.

Question. Where does it come from?

Professor. Liquid Glass, in the scientific world (my world), is better known as Silicon Dioxide (SiO2). SiO2 is a chemical found in quartz, sand and even inside our human bodies. If you believe it or not, the truth is that humans need SiO2 to survive. It is also used in food manufacturing amongst other things too. You can learn more about this by reading our Company & Sustainability sections.

Question. So is this chemical harmful for us?

Professor. No, as I have mentioned Liquid Glass comes from a natural source and it is 100% organic and eco-friendly.

Question. But you mention it uses alcohol. Is this not dangerous?

Professor. That is correct. Liquid Glass needs to be carried (or if you prefer kept) in either alcohol or water, and our alcohol is organic. Once applied the carrier evaporates leaving a pure nano-layer of glass. At Crystalusion Limited we believe in only using eco-friendly and organic technology in our products.

Question. So where can you use Liquid Glass?

Professor. The most incredible thing about this technology is that there is not a single surface I have come across in my life which cannot be coated in Liquid Glass. You can coat, mobile phones with Crystalusion – Liquid Glass Protection, your cars/vehicles in InteriorShield & ExteriorShield. We manufacture different Liquid Glass coatings for different surfaces. We have coatings for glass surfaces, textiles, wood surfaces, metal surfaces, stone, marble, plastics and more. We have simplified all of this and explained what the advantages are for each industry in our Commercial Solutions section.

Question. Why would you want to coat Glass with Liquid Glass?

Professor. One of the main characteristics of Liquid Glass is that it creates an easy clean surface helping us reduce the amount of time and money spent on cleaning products, keeping the things you love looking newer for longer.

Question. What are the main characteristics of Liquid Glass?

Professor. You can read all about the characteristics of Liquid Glass on our Company section however to summarise our technology, I can tell you that it is; 100% invisible, ant-abrasion, anti-bacterial and superphobic.

Question. What does “Superphobic” mean?

Professor. Superphobic means that it is oleophobic (repels grease) and hydrophobic (repels water). Watch what happens when you coat a shirt in our Liquid Glass.

Question. Wow, and have these characteristics been certified?

Professor. Each of our coatings have different certifications depending on their use and requirments. For example; Crystalusion™ has been laboratory tested to ASTM C1624-05 Quantitative Single Point Scratch Testing using a 0.2mm tip radius Rockwell diamond and proven to withstand up to 56n before showing visible signs of scratching. That’s 600% more resistance than a traditional screen protector.  It’s also worth mentioning that under the same Rockwell scratch test Gorilla glass 3 shows visible signs of scratching at 11n.

Crystalusion™ has also been granted ASTM antimicrobial certification. It has been tested to ASTM E2180 standard and is shown to reduce bacteria levels by 99.9% when tested with Salmonella, Staph. aureus & E. coli. To learn more about our certifications and request MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) please contact our sales team via our Contact Form or by writing to us on

Question. How long does the coating last?

Professor. There is no glue or adhesive agent in our coatings as these bond (or stick) to the substrate (or surface) using what is known in physics as the Van der Wels effect, something I can explain later if you want. Therefore it can only be removed with abrasion and usage over time.

Does that mean that once applied Liquid Glass is permanent?

Professor. No it is typically not permanent even though we do have a coating that can last for up to 25 years. 99% of our coatings will last between 9 months and 2 years depending where they are applied and how much abrasion the surface is exposed to. This includes human abrasion through touch, wear and tear as well as environmental abrasion such as wind, dirt, rain etc…

Question.This is amazing stuff Professor. If someone reading this would want to learn more about Liquid Glass how can they get in touch?
