nano care building

The ‘building protection’ collection is a range of water-repellent spray SiO2 products that preserve, protect and restore multiple building surfaces. These weather resistance coatings are often used in building repair and building preservation processes. Continous product development using hybrid technology and innovative techniques has created the most advanced range of dirt repellent and oil repellent solutions for new and existing buildings.

Nanoflex® AG 0.25 establishes a nanoscale breathable 3D coating on absorbent surfaces such as concrete, brick, stone and terracotta. Surfaces permanently repel water ingress, up to 95% of dirt and 98% of moss, lichen and fungus for a functional lifespan of over ten years.* Once coated, the materials exhibit 3-fold freeze and thaw resistance (EN1338).

Nanoflex® AG 0.25 adhesion to the OH surface guarantees exceptional permanence against weathering and mechanical and chemical abrasion, making it ideal for use on monuments, steps, war memorials and statues, as well as garden ornaments and fountains.

*Note that the initially strong pearling effect can diminish after a few years due to the deposit of fine dust particles. However, this in no way impairs the protection.

Nanoflex® AG 0.25 is also available in different strengths – VP 172 and AG. These formulae contain a comparatively low (VP 172) and/or high (AG) proportion of active ingredient. The product is water-based and classified as a non-hazardous material according to ADR and IATA. It can also be shipped as a liquid concentrate (Nanoflex® Konzentrat SP).

Please observe the relevant safety data sheet when using Nanoflex® AG 0.25.

Nanoflex® Infusion permeates porous mineral substrates such as stone, brick, terracotta and concrete. The smart coating prevents hydrostatic pressure and repels water ingress, preventing rising water from being absorbed and consequently damaging the substrate.

Nanoflex® Infusion forms an ultra-thin 3D network within the porous structure of the substrate to permanently repel water ingress and create a water pressure-resistant finish. The chemical bond formed within the substrate is highly resistant against mechanical and chemical erosion.

This non-stick intelligent coating is suitable for use on all types of memorials, statues, monuments, landscape and garden features and is certified in accordance with DIN EN 1504-2.

Nanoflex® PRE 440 is a complex SiO2 product that enhances the natural structure of substrates by employing specially adapted chemical and physical crosslinking technology to produce stabilising 3D networks.

The primary function of Nanoflex® PRE 440 is to impede and delay erosion of the substrate by significantly improving mechanical, chemical, physical and thermal stability and thereby halting erosion caused by rain, frost, sun and wind.

This hydrophobic coating product is ideal for use on sandstone walls and monuments to preserve appearance retention and create a water pressure-resistant finish.

Nanoflex® AG System – also known as ‘Graffiti Guard’ – is an anti-graffiti coating that ensures appearance retention against the strongest elements.

The Nanoflex® AG System is a permanent protective graffiti removal layer that prevents paint particles from penetrating the porous structure of mineral surfaces where they could become permanently embedded. This protective layer is dirt repellent and oil repellent: the sealant repels water ingress, 95% of dirt and 98% of moss, lichen and fungus from adhering to absorbent substrates such as stone, concrete, terracotta and brick and has a functional lifespan of over ten years.*

The Nanoflex® AG System creates a nanoscale, breathable 3D coating on the substrate that permanently repels dirt and water from any porous mineral structure. The molecular fusion of the active ingredient to the surface also guarantees permanent protection against weathering, mechanical and chemical abrasion. It is therefore classified as “non-sacrificial” graffiti protection, which will withstand multiple graffiti removals with the appropriate agent. Nanoflex® AG has wear resistance equivalent to the substrate that it’s applied to. Re-application of the coating adjacent to existing applications is easily achieved. All coated substrates exhibit 3-fold freeze/thaw resistance (EN1338).

This non-stick nano-care product is designed for many surface applications on public buildings and circulation areas such as underpasses, bridges, schools and external cladding, as well as surfaces that are prone to high levels of dirt and contamination (particularly surfaces that require chewing gum removal) and surfaces that require appearance retention.

*Please note that the initially strong pearling effect can diminish after a few years due to the deposit of fine dust particles. However, this in no way impairs the protection.
