Nanovations  introduces the new penetrating sealer 3001. This sealer provides a sustainable penetrating surface treatment for concrete and stone. Many common penetrating sealers require the use of large volumes of hydrocarbon solvents as carrier to transport the active substances deep into the concrete.

Hydrocarbon solvents account for a significant portion of atmospheric VOCs. Other solvents like acetone and alcohol are flammable and hazardous substances.

Growing environmental consciousness, green building design and official regulations demand the use of low volatile organic compound (VOC) or true VOC-free products in general. In the field of hydrophobic impregnation for construction this has led to the development of aqueous impregnating emulsions.

A sustainable product with excellent penetration properties that can be used for green building designs is now available from Nanovations.

The new product, 3001 not only offer a complete VOC free and environmentally friendly solution, but also extremely high penetration, the most important indicator for the long term durability of a sealer system.

The product is completely odour free and eliminates the health risks associated with solvent based products. To add to the environmental benefits, 3001 will be shipped as a high concentrated solution only. This significantly reduces transport and storage costs and also reduces waste from empty packaging.

As a result, a 20 litre drum of concentrate is sufficient to treat up to 1000 square metre of concrete. At a cost per square metre base, 3001 is the most cost effective solution on the market.

A version which meets the stringent new European EN 1504-2 requirements and regulation for construction concrete and infrastructure is also available.

Nanovations is developing and supplying advanced products using the latest technologies to add advantages and benefits to manufactured products.
