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.
