All the products of the Teclumen range undergo a surface treatment aimed at eliminating the development of rust on steel.
Treatments based on nanotechnology operate on the nanometre scale, which is one millionth of a millimetre. To be more precise, these are water or alcohol-based solutions of silicon nanoparticles (SiO2 matrix) in different concentrations, to give the required properties.
The nanoparticles spread out on the surface forming a protective barrier, and their size allows them to cover even micro-holes, preventing pollutants from entering the substrate. By staying on the surface, these will be much easier to remove.
The nanomolecules, spread out across the surface, offer surprising water-repellent properties. This means that excellent results are obtained in the prevention of degradation from humidity, infiltration by water, rising damp from the ground, also making cleaning easier in general and preventing the adhesion of graffiti. At the same time, nanomolecules bind the product to the surface.
These formulations can transform surface tension from high (attractive) to low (repulsive). This characteristic makes the surface water/oil-repellent and easy to clean.
