Have you ever heard of nanoglass? For those who don’t know, it is a synthetic material produced from glass powder, subjected to a nanotechnological process that results in a uniform material. “The main characteristics that differentiate nanoglass from other surfaces are the vitrified and mirrored appearance of the material’s surface and its super white color”, points out the architect Sabrina Salles (@sabrina_salles).

According to the professional, the nanotechnology used in the production of the material produces a surface with low porosity, which makes it not stain easily. However, it is more sensitive to high temperatures. It is common to hear people say that you cannot place hot pans on nanoglass, as there is a risk of cracking and, unlike other materials, it is not possible to repair the surface individually.

However, Sabrina warns that this condition is directly related to manufacturing and installation, requiring the use of suitable products and specialized labor to ensure a more resistant material.

Nanoglass is a versatile material that can be used in many ways. Find out below some ways to apply it and its use in projects.

One of the bathrooms in this apartment, designed by the architect Ana Sawaia (@anasawaia), was coated with the same materials, both on the floor and on the walls of the environment, giving a feeling of spaciousness. The inserts are made of graphite-coloured hexagonal ceramics. The sink was carved from nanoglass.
