You’ve probably heard about the Nano Liquid Screen Protector, and if you are like me, you should be stunned with quite a number of questions regarding this nice tech.
It is supposed to give you an High-definition, Crystal clear, scratch resistance, water repellent and also protect your screen against physical damage up to the 9H level (more on this later in the article).
Some even protect you against radiations that come from your phone, and make your phone almost as strong as diamond.
I mean, does it even work? If it does, how long does it work?
A liquid glass? To some, that sound quite “impossible”. Well, you are about to see another instance where you get reminded that the word “Impossible” says “I’m possible”.

What Does Nanotechnology Even Mean?
Nanotechnology is exactly what it sounds like, technology at the “Nano” level, i.e between 1 to 10 nanometers.
The Nanotech can come in different forms, and has different applications and one of those is the liquid tech screen protector.
The way it works is materials that have very high strength are made or used in the nano very small) scale, and that’s what makes the screen protectors work.
I mean, think about it this way:
If a big strong diamond was cut as a flat material and placed on your screen to protect it, you most likely won’t be in two minds since you know that, first, diamond is strong and second, it’s a pretty big one, right?
Now, what if there was a way to convert that “big strong diamond” to a “very small (i.e nano) but still strong liquid diamond”.
Hey, no no, I’m not saying the Nanotechnology liquid glass protector is made of Diamond. Don’t get me wrong, I’m just trying to explain how Nanotechnology works.
What Are Nanotech Liquid Screen Protectors?
These are liquids that fill into spaces in your glass, and add special features.
The liquid screen protector is applied on the surface of your default device glass/plastic screen, which hardens the screen without any observable change in the texture or shape of the glass.
Apart from making it harder, it also makes it dust and dirt-proof.
They are kind of “Invisible protectors”, because what you are really doing is adding an invisible glass (that’s way thicker than your normal glass) to your mobile screen.
Do Nanotech Liquid Protectors Work?
If by now, you are still wondering if Nanotechnology liquid screen protectors work, the simple answer is YES.
How Protective Are They Really?
Nanotech liquid protectors have a 9H hardness.
Well, let me put it in another way.
The scale is from 1-10, 1 being the smallest (Talc is 1) and 10 being the hardest (diamond is 10).
NOTE: Regular glasses have a 5H hardness score.
So, when you think about it, these liquid protectors give your device screen an hardness score that is close to that of diamond (9H is equivalent to Sapphire actually).
But, that’s not all.
Your mobile device also becomes scratch-resistance, repel water and even have antibacterial properties.
To make it even cooler, the liquid screen protector by Nanofixit brand has been proven to protect against harmful radiations, reducing it by up to 90%!
How Long Can Nanotech Liquid Screen Protector Work?
As fascinating as these techs are, they aren’t quite permanent.
They have been shown to work for about 2 years, after which is recommended that you replace it.
Although it also depends on how you use your phone, you can decide to change it every year.
Well, that should not be a big surprise.
In fact, when you compare how much they cost to how long they last, it’s like getting too much value than you paid for.
Is It Made For Plastic or Glass Screen?
These liquid protectors are made for glass screen.
The are supposed to make your normal glass screen even stronger.
So, if you apply it to a plastic screen, it will not be as effective.
QUICK TIP: You can also apply the Liquid protector to the back of your phone too if it is made of glass.
How to Apply the Nano Liquid Screen Protector
When you buy the Nano liquid protector, it will come with an enclosed cleaning wipe (an alcohol prep pad).
- Wipe your screen with the cleaning wipe which does two things:
- First, it cleans any dust/dirt that may be on your screen.
- Also, it prepares your phone for the magic.
- Next, apply the liquid to the screen with the pre-treated pen over the entire screen in a circular motion.
- Wait for 5 minutes, then polish the screen with another micro fibre cloth.
- For even better protection, re-apply the liquid once more, wait for another five minutes and polish the screen once again.
- The Nano technology liquid screen protector will become fully absorbed and ready to be tested in 24 – 48 hours.
Can I Remove Nano Screen Protectors After Applying?
I see absolutely no reason why you will need to remove the liquid screen protectors after you apply them on your screen.
Actually, they are not meant to be removed as they basically become a part of your device screen.
However, you can remove it by polishing it off with a nail polish remover and cotton. Rub on the screen for about 2 minutes and then clean with alcohol.
