Concrete, more than any other human-made material, has changed the way we build. Its immense strength and the freedom to construct almost any shape creates endless structural possibilities from office facades and highway barriers to industrial infrastructure and more.
Mineral compounds are the backbone of modern construction. Stone varieties such as sandstone, granite, concrete, pavers, roof tiles, render and masonry surfaces are all susceptible to moisture damage, leading to the corrosion of steel reinforcement, algae growth and moss on exterior surfaces.
Available in water or solvent base, Nanokote’s SOL range of products are a single component and transparent, penetrating nanotechnology impregnation coatings. The product uses molecular bonding with a mineral substrate to form a hydrophobic surface while still allowing the surface to breathe. The hydrophobic surface texture will not be altered or make surfaces slippery which makes for an easy to maintain, self-cleaning process on treated porous mineral surfaces.
Nanokote’s SOL range will seal the surface and protect it from virtually anything in the environment. As it is resistant to abrasion, the formed hydrophobic surface will ensure long lasting protection and durability.
Wood is a versatile construction material and has been used to create structures of strength and beauty for centuries. Wood is also very susceptible to damage from the environment, UV light, moisture, algae, moss and fungi—all of these factors accelerate the decay of the surface.
Nanokote’s SOL range will protect wooden surfaces from the elements and create a water repellent coating, hydrophobic effect to prevent expansion and contraction whilst allowing it to breathe. Due to its water, oil and dirt repelling properties, Nanokote’s SOL range will create a surface with non-stick properties and provide long lasting protection.
