The BaBylissPRO Nano-Titanium Flat Iron features a built-in ionic generator and recessed LED electronic temperature controls. This tool performs up to 40% faster than many straightening irons available today. 1" floating plates with heat up to 450°F. Ultra-slim profile, with extra-long 4-3/4” long plates. Surround heat. This iron yields maximum far-infrared heat, heating the hair from within for gentle straightening without damage This nano-titanium styler has many benefits. Nano-titanium is an exceptional conductor of heat and is stable at ultra-high temperatures. The nano-titanium plates combine the technology of micro particles of titanium, providing the ultimate heat performance for beautiful, healthy hair. Nano-titanium yields maximum far-infrared heat, penetrating the hair from within for gentle styling without damaging hair. Nano-titanium emits negative ions for faster styling, locking in hair’s own natural moisture. This nano-titanium iron will give your hair a smooth, silky shine while eliminating frizz. The Sol-Gel technique is a delicate, precisely controlled lab process that transforms nanoscale particles of silver and ceramic from a liquid (SOL) to a solid (GEL) form, resulting in a much higher concentration of silver and ceramic (more than 65%, vs. less than 15% on conventional plate coating). The nano-silver ceramic coating is 37% harder (longer lasting and chip resistant), less porous (chemically resistant) and 22% smoother (reduces friction and helps preserve the integrity of the hair).
