Resumen:
Una pyme griega ha desarrollado una nueva tecnología de impermeabilización y protección de superficies basadas en arcilla. La empresa aprovecha las propiedades únicas de la nanotecnología para crear materiales inteligentes de impermeabilización y protección de superficies basadas en arcilla, tejas cerámicas, terracota, estuco y alfarería. El nuevo producto protege e impermeabiliza las superficies penetrando en los poros. Puesto que las nanopartículas no forman cadenas poliméricas, las superficies modificadas con este producto duran más e incluso después de ocho años mantienen un 95% de su actividad o funcionalidad original. Se buscan socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación y comercialización con asistencia técnica.

Development of water-proofing agents for application in clay based surfaces
Summary:
A Greek SME, has developed an innovative technology for the waterproofing and protection of clay-based surfaces. The company takes advantage of the unique properties of nanotechnology to invent smart materials to be applied for the waterproofing and protection of clay-based surfaces, ceramic roof tiles, cotto tiles, stucco and pottery. The company now seeks partners to establish commercial agreement and/or technical co-operation agreement.
Description:
A Greek SME, has developed an innovative technology for the waterproofing and protection of clay-based surfaces. The new water-based formulations act completely differently, when compared to polymer membranes or traditional silicone-based formulations, as they do not create a plastic film on the surface applied. The new product protects and waterproofs surfaces by deeply penetrating into the pores of clay-based substrates: As nanoparticles do not form polymer chains, the product´s modified surfaces can last longer; even after eight years they can exhibit 95% of their original activity or functionality. The formulations are more resistant to the intense part of solar light (UV radiation) which does not cause them to become yellowish. While the formulations do not alter the colour and natural appearance of the surfaces modified, they also allow them to breathe. The formulation is water based, containing nanoparticles which have been specially engineered to deeply penetrate and shield the microscopic pores of surfaces. While water and moisture are actively repelled, materials retain their ability to ´breathe´. Clay surfaces and roof tiles are effectively protected from deterioration and from unsightly ´greening´ of mould growth. The company is willing to offer tailor-made technical services to the partner companies for the efficient use of the developed technology. For the commercial agreement, the comapny is interested to establish parrtnerships with partners from the building materials industry.
Advantages and Innovations:
A very important advantage of the technology is the breathing of the modified surfaces. In particular, in case moisture is trapped behind a coated surface, the water will evaporate into the environment without accumulating inside the building´s structure.
Instead of sealing the pores, nanoparticles coat them, assuring that water or other corroding factors are effectively repelled by chemical forces. In this manner, protection is provided deeply into the substrate which is therefore not affected by abrasion or mechanical wear. Therefore, internal (negative) pressure is relieved by evaporation since water vapours can still flow inside the pores of the material and exit into the open environment. However, water from the external environment is blocked from being transferred inside the material. In this manner, common building failures (swelling, cracking, warping) are prevented and the coated surfaces remain dry and unchanged in both their appearance and mechanical properties.
Nanotechnology for any clay-based surface, like roof tiles, pottery and cotto tiles.
Prevents surface corrosion and the nasty greening of your favourite surfaces.
Prevents growth of algae, mould and microorganisms.
Prevents white spots and salt deposits (efflorescence).
Simple surface application, retaining ´breathing´ without change of natural appearance.
