Based on chemical Nanotechnology, the synthesized product contains specially modified, functional nanoparticles that are specially linked into a Silicon matrix in a Solvent/Water Base. Self-organizing Nano components form as invisible layer on the surface with excellent Water and Oil Repellent properties. This coating is very versatile and special additional properties like anti-bacterial protections can be incorporated into the material.

Test of Coating
The coating takes about 24 hrs to completely set. Once coated, its performance can be tested by pouring some water on the coated panels. If properly coated, the water should form droplets and roll-off.
Performance of this coat is robust due to effect of inorganic nanoparticles incorporated in the liquid matrix, i.e. it is a dispersion of functionalized nanoparticles in a solvent base. This solvent acts as carrier in spreading the coating across the applied surface. Over the curing period i.e. 7 & 8 hrs, nanoparticles self-assemble across the surface and bonds with the surface.
The solvent evaporates over the curing period leaving only the nanoparticles that form a uniform this layer of 50-60 nm over the surface.
This nanocoating does not remain only as a coating on the surface, but fine nanoparticloes penetrate deep inside porous stones (e.g. sandstone) through its fine pores and over a period of time (1 year) it covers a large part of the stone, and continues to penetrate & spread inside rendering robust antidamp/bacterial properties to the surface.
In Indian environmental conditions temperature variations are wide and this generates thermal shocks leading to multiple cracks in older building, Nanoparticles incorporated in the coating behave in an elastic manner as they absorb thermal shocks but do not allow them to pass on and save building from thermal shocks & cracks. Conventional water proofing chemicals do not incorporate such kind of properties.
This nanocoating does not allow algae and scale formation as the ability of foreign particle to adhere to the surface is reduced. Performance is robust compared to fragile & low performance organic additives used in manufacturing conventional coating used to prevent algae and scale formation.
The coat is optically neutral enabling it to be completed transparent and while applied over stone surface, the color of surface remains unchanged.
We offer a guarantee of 3 to 5 years with this product.
This nanocoating differs from conventional water-proofing chemicals available at present. Conventional water-proofing chemicals are of soapy nature, colored and are generally calcium salt or organosilane based and are unable to impart hydrophobic, anti-bacterial and thermal properties.
