Protect Nano – Stain Protection for Upholstery & Carpets
Protect Nano is a water based solution of fluoro-chemical nano-particles which cures in air to form a water and oil repellent barrier on porous surfaces. Unlike most water-based fluoro-chemicals, Protect Nano does not require high temperature curing to give optimum oil and water repellence.
Protect Nano is designed for professional use only to give lasting protection on carpets, fabrics, stone, tiles and other porous surfaces (not suitable for silk). Suitable training in its use forms part of our training courses.
Protect Nano should be applied using airless pressure spray similar to a garden type sprayer. Apply 1 coat E-W then after 10 minutes apply a second coat N-S DO NOT BRUSH IN, leave to dry.
Apply evenly at the rate of 50 – 100ml per m2, depending on the absorbency of the surface.
Only spray in conditions of good ventilation. The spray operator and anyone in the vicinity should avoid inhalation of the spray mist and suitable protective masks are recommended. Drying time will be longer than with a solvent based preparation and this can be accelerated by the use of zone heating and forced ventilation.
Should be applied using a 500050 T-Jet fan type nozzle to a clean surface by spraying using a pressure spray.
For plush fabrics and carpets:
Dilute with equal parts of water and apply at a rate of up to 20-40 sq.m/litre.
For curtains, cotton furnishing fabrics etc:
Dilute with equal parts water and apply at a rate of up to 80 sq.m/litre.
1:1 = 1 litre Protect Nano mixed with 1 litre of water.
Appearance: Hazy Emulsion Specific Gravity: approx 1.0 Ionic Activity: cationic pH: 4 – 5 Solubility: soluble in cold water Flash Point: non-flammable.
Protect Nano protects against penetration by oil or water based contaminants making cleaning of surfaces very easy – most stains can simply be wiped or mopped away. The protection is long lasting but will be reduced over time depending on wear, traffic and cleaning regime. Aggressive cleaners should not be required on Protect Nano protected surfaces and their use will reduce the lifetime of the protective effects.
