SurfaPore M

Availability: In stock

SurfaPore M is a water based formulation, specifically designed to harness the power of nanotechnology, in order to achieve both oil and water repellency on the surfaces applied. It contains a blend of different size nanoparticles, so as to successfully modify slightly porous surfaces (like marble or granites) and absorptive surfaces (like cement or stones).
Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the colour and texture of products on this website but due to the limitations of technology, we strongly recommend that sample products are purchased for testing in situ prior to the full order being placed.

Description

Details

SurfaPore M is a water based formulation, specifically designed to harness the power of nanotechnology, in order to achieve both oil and water repellency on the surfaces applied. It contains a blend of different size nanoparticles, so as to successfully modify slightly porous surfaces (like marble or granites) and absorptive surfaces (like cement or stones).

SurfaPore M's action mechanism is simple in concept but effective in practice, The core nano-sized particles, suitably engineered to fit the pores of the surface applied, penetrate and “flood” pores that can accumulate water, oil or dirt.

SurfaPore M anchors on the surface applied, so as the coating is permanent and effective. After coating, water, oil or dirt fails to penetrate into the microporosity of the substrate, as the chemical structure of billions of nanoparticles repel the “attacking” molecules.

Therefore, an important, value-adding objective has been achieved: Permanent pore protection provides stain proofing and easy cleaning properties. The application of SurfaPore M does not induce any visual change on the surface applied and does not block its breathability. Its unique formulation combines water repelling nanoparticles, partially coated with organofluorated coatings that provide oil repellency and resistance to extreme temperature ranges.

The ability of SurfaPore M to retain functionality up to 350°C, makes it ideal for application on kitchen tops or other surfaces where hot objects are placed. SurfaPore M nanoparticles block the absorbance of UV radiation without affecting the surface. Therefore, superior protection of the substrate is achieved without discoloration (yellowish essence) or loss of effectiveness. Industrially, SurfaPore W has found important applications both by spraying and by dipping of building blocks (stones). Significant references include restoration of archaelogical monuments, preservation of high traffic areas or application on industrial flooring that loose their shiny look.

Application Advice

Applications: 

  • Oil & water protection of 
    porous surfaces (marbles and 
    granites) 
  • Prevents staining of kitchen 
    countertops 
  • Protects high traffic areas

Application Note

Surface Application: The application surface should be dry and clean. Apply SurfaPore M by brush, roller or spraying. No dilution is required. 

After about 15 minutes, and before SurfaPore M dries completely, remove application excess with a wet, soft cloth and polish the surface. For extra protection of very sensitive surfaces reapply, within 3 hours after the first application. 

Maximum efficiency is achieved 7 days post application. 

Consumption: Estimated consumption rate 12-18 m2 per litre, strongly dependant on the absorption properties of the 
application surface.

FAQs

Active Nanotechnology for protecting marbles, granites & stones against stains and oil.

Stains can destroy your valuable stone, marble and granite surfaces. SurfaPore M not only protects these surfaces from stains, but also makes them oil and water repellent. Microscopic analysis of marbles, granite and stone surfaces reveals multiple interconnected pores that readily collect stains, resulting in loss of shine and natural appearance. SurfaPore M coats the pores of your valuable surfaces, without changing their appearance and enables them to actively repel oil based stains. Therefore, a dual effect is achieved: Passive protection by dressing the surface of pores and active oil repellency. An effective protection shield!

What is Nanotechnology? Nanotechnology refers to the scientific field, which deals with very small structures, usually sized below 100 nm. One nanometer (nm) is one billionth of a meter (10-9 m) - it is so small that if earth were one meter in diameter, then one nanometer would have been the size of an apple! Nanosized materials reveal unique properties when compared to ordinary, bulk materials or even molecules.

International Standards Testing

ASTM E514 – Pressure Driven Water Resistance: Five SurfaPore M modified natural stone samples of one cm thickness (modified on both sides) were examined under constant 500Pa pressure for 120h: Reduction of Water Penetration: 85,4% ±2%, Reduce of Water Leakage: 97,1% ±2%. 

Stability under Ultra Violet (UV) Irradiation: SurfaPore M exhibits at least 3 times more resistance to UV irradiation than traditional, solvent based water repellents. 

Water Vapour Permeability Loss: Water Vapor Permeability was determined as the rate of water vapors “travelling” through a 1cm thick porous stone sample. Vapor Permeability Loss: 2,12% (surface application). 

Stain Resistance EN ISO 10545- 14: SurfaPore M modified surfaces are not susceptible to staining and exhibit Class 5 Stain Resistance.
