Splash Proof Nanotechnology Coating
Whether the surface in question is concrete or many other options, Splash Proof can provide a hydrophobic layer which will reduce the growth of mold and mildew for years!
Splash Proof is a nanotechnology coating that is water based penetrating, V.O.C. compliant, water-repellent which contains a proprietarily modified siloxane. This solvent-based siloxane penetrates up to 1/4 inch or more, depending on surface porosity and moisture content at the time of application. Splash Proof reacts with the minerals in concrete. This reaction forms strong permanent bonds beneath the surface and creates a hydrophobic zone that prevents water molecules from penetrating while allowing free migration of water vapors. The chemical bond formed in this process allows Splash Proof to become an integral part of the substrate and provide long-term water-repellent protection.
Splash Proof water-repellent products create long-lasting protection (up to 10 years*) from negative environmental effects. Our products were designed to combat these problems, not only increasing the longevity of treated structures but also decreasing maintenance costs. Effective hydrophobization is possible without using inorganic compounds.
Moisture is the root cause of almost all mechanisms that damage mineral-based building materials. The porous nature of mineral substrates soaks up the water containing contaminants via capillary suction. This fact causes many damaging effects to the substrate. Preventing water ingress into a substrate structure can completely eliminate the risk of damages to the substrate caused by moisture.
Conventional coatings, like polymeric, prevent water ingress but simultaneously seal off the pores blocking water within. This results in the inner decay of the substrate. At the same time, they are not resistant to UV radiation or scratches what allows water to penetrate again
