Technical Tips

1.Coatings for easy-cleaning and water-oil repulse

In outdoor situations, such as gardens, courtyards, balconies, terraces, commercial spaces, dining outlets open spaces etc, we create surfaces that repel water, oils and other substances, preventing staining of the surface generated when they dry. So, for example when coffee, oil, wine, food, etc., is spilled, it is not absorbed by the surface and it is easily removed with either a cloth or water, without scrubbing with brushes and cleaners. In addition, rain water acts as a natural cleaning. Note that the coating is invisible, while the original surface has both its original appearance and texture. The key element is that it is an ecologically completely harmless material, which also contributes to environmental protection, saving water and reducing chemical cleaners.

The project includes 2 stages:

a) Thorough cleaning of the surface

b) Coating with the suitable material

In good weather conditions, the application can be done within a day, while in case of rain or high humidity there should be an interval between the two stages so that the surface is allowed to dry.

The time of "life" of this coating is from 3 to 10 years, and always depends on storage and use conditions. So, in a workplace where there is heavy traffic and use, "wear" is faster than that in a courtyard or a garden.

The cost of labor, which is quite affordable, is made in consultation with the company after a free of charge visit by our agent on the site in order to carry out an assignment and to obtain a global perception of the object to be treated.

If one wishes, he can obtain the suitable material for the surface and make the application on his own. Our company in this case, provides full technical support, with clear information materials and detailed instructions for use of its materials.

 

2. Coatings for waterproofing

These coatings are suitable in cases where there is inflow of moisture inside buildings, through the phenomenon of capillary absorption.

The sealed surface is the outside and always under the condition that there are no visible cracks exceeding 0,3 mm. The hyperfine and invisible coating prevents water from entering the building block, but also it allows the water trapped within to come out in the form of vapor.

Examples of application are concrete terraces, the joints of the paving, patios, walls, traditional houses made of natural stone, visible bricks, etc.

The coatings are also suitable for dark and shadowy places where unwanted greenery or mold grows.

Furthermore, it should be noted that waterproofing coatings, help significantly to the heating insulation ability of a building, since the manufactured building components such as slabs, walls, etc., are kept dry. Thus, the extra heat absorbed during the winter months from the trapped moisture of the components before, is now used entirely for heating, achieving energy savings around more than 10%. Simultaneously, the relative humidity of the interior is maintained at lower levels, ensuring a healthier environment and heating comfort conditions.

The time of "life" of this coating is from 5 to 10 years depending on the storage conditions and use and of course, the type of the surface.

The cost of labor, which is quite affordable, is made in consultation with the company after a free of charge visit by our agent on the site in order to carry out an assignment and to obtain a global perception of the object to be treated.

The client himself can do the application of the coating. Our company can provide the appropriate materials, after an autopsy by our representative. In this case our company provides full technical support with clear information materials and instructions of use for all the materials.

 

3. Coatings for photocatalysis, self-cleaning

This technologically advanced coatings are used mainly on exterior surfaces that are accessible by daylight. What makes them special is the fact that most new, engineered surfaces, with the help of light and UV radiation in particular, have the potential to degrade organic pollutants, especially convert them into harmless substances such as CO2 and H2O. In addition, they act as natural filters for hazardous oxides of nitrogen (NOX) which break down and remove from the air in contact with the surface.

Besides the above, excellent results are achieved in the appearance of the coated surfaces, as the decomposition of pollutants, in association with water, which can come either from rain or a quick rinse, carries away debris and pollutants leaving the surface clean.

The result is visible after a few days or weeks, and after comparing the two surfaces, treated and not.

The photocatalytic materials, as shown in the relevant section give,at the surfaces which contain them, phenomena hydrophilicity due to the presence of TiO2,. This makes them particularly interesting for applications in substrates vertical or inclined to the ground. The pollutants that cling to windows, for example, solar panels, photovoltaic panels, walls, facades, etc., are carried away by water, which creates an invisible film, and then they are removed completely.

The photocatalytic self-cleaning coatings cover a wide range of applications including:

  • Ceramic floor tiles
  • Marble surfaces
  • Cement Surfaces
  • Balconies, terraces, gardens, courtyards.
  • Building facades
  • Places with increased demands of hygiene, such as hospitals, clinics, kitchens, toilets etc
  • External glazing, solar panels, photovoltaic, etc.

The time of "life" of this coating is from 3 to 6 years depending on storage and use conditions, and on the stresses suffered by the treated surface.

The cost of labor, which is quite affordable, is made in consultation with the company after a free of charge visit by our agent on the site in order to carry out an assignment and to obtain a global perception of the object to be treated.

As in other cases, the client can do the application of the coating on his own. Our company can supply the necessary materials, and indicate the corresponding equipment, prior autopsy. Our company can provide a comprehensive technical support with clear information materials and instructions of use for all materials.

For any questions or queries you for all the above, you can contact our company, and we will arrange to come into direct contact with you.
