Yes, NANO COAT HOME is compatible even with all the low-energy types of heating, e.g. underfloor or infrared heating.

Can I use NANO COAT HOME on various combinations of surfaces?

see answer hide answer

NANO COAT HOME has excellent adhesion. Its right application consists of the right sequence of the following steps: making the surface uniform, treating the surface, applying NANO COAT HOME. We recommend making diverse surfaces uniform, e.g. absorbent masonry, glass, brick etc... with the NANO AM adhesion bonding primer. Its advantages include its high opacity and white colour, so a mere 1.5mm layer of NANO COAT HOME is enough, and the wall is ready.

How to remove a layer of NANO COAT HOME from the wall?

Removing a layer of NANO COAT HOME is very easy. This layer is soft and flexible, so it can be easily removed with a spatula.

In 2019, we have presented our products to specialists and to the general public in several international building exhibitions and trade fairs. You can email us and We’ll redirect your request to a dealer for testing.

Do I have to buy the whole range of the NANO COAT SYSTEM or can I use the various products on their own?

see answer hide answer

To achieve the best results, we recommend using the products of the same range as a system. E.g. the high-quality penetration prime coat by HELSKE ENERGY SAVE has 7.08% dry matter, is environment-friendly and its price is comparable to the other penetration prime coats available in the market.  It will be a wonderful help for various building works as a separate product. The same applies for the NANO AM adhesion bonding primer which has high dry matter content (64%) at a comparative price compared to competitive products, its colour is white and it has high opacity which enables the application of  thinner layers of the coat, and the base won’t show through. The NANO TC is a universal levelling coat that can be used separately for a wide range of renovation work, minor building repairs and for making uneven wall surfaces even.

Where are the HELSKE ENERGY SAVE products made?

Our products are developed, tested and produced in new production halls in the Levoča Industrial Park situated in the heart of Europe.

Can the NANO COAT HOME be applied on floors?

see answer hide answer

Although we recommend using the NANO COAT HOME primarily as the final layer of the inner coat of walls and ceilings, it can be used on floors as well. When applying it to the floor, we recommend taking into account the right type of floor covering, depending on the use of the room. It should be a covering which enables an even distribution of load, e.g. linoleum.

Is it necessary to apply the NANO COAT HOME to the whole wall?  

see answer hide answer

If you want to achieve thermal comfort in the whole room, it is ideal to apply NANO COAT HOME on the surface of all the walls. However, it can be applied locally, too, e.g. to eliminate thermal bridges, or only in places which radiate cold.

Is the thermal insulation effect the same with heating as with cooling and air-conditioning of the room?

see answer hide answer

The thermal insulation effect is the same in both cases because the main effect of the NANO COAT HOME lies in slowing down the transfer of heat into the walls and the structure. After its application, thermal comfort is achieved instantly. The air does not cool down from the cold masonry and does not heat up from the heat radiating from non-insulated masonry. Besides, this product is vapour-permeable and free of harmful chemicals, so it creates a truly healthy home and an optimal microclimate.    

Can I mix paint into the NANO COAT HOME before its application?

see answer hide answer

We do not recommend mixing colour pigments into NANO COAT HOME because the desired shade might not be achieved when smoothing the dried layer.

Where can I see the application procedure of the products of the NANO COAT SYSTEM?

We have prepared instructive videos on our YouTube channel where we show how each product is applied step by step.

What are the main advantages of the NANO COAT SYSTEM?

see answer hide answer

Through its products, the NANO COAT SYSTEM efficiently fights the SICK BUILDING SYNDROME (SBS). It creates an optimal microclimate in the rooms and is a suitable solution for several building problems. It prevents the appearance of moulds and the growth of microorganisms and, after its use, the air in the room heats up faster or cools down faster, and the set temperature is maintained longer. This way, it saves energy. The products are vapour-permeable and have a very low content of volatile compounds.

Does the NANO COAT SYSTEM have to be applied by a professional or can it be managed by anyone?

see answer hide answer

We care not only about the quality of our products and their composition but also about the quality of their application. Therefore, we place great emphasis on the professional training of service providers to fulfil the expectations of our customers. However, the products of the NANO COAT SYSTEM in their retail packaging are ready for immediate use to make their application easier even for skilful DIYers.
