Force Field Nano Shield
Force Field Nano Shield is a solvent based, penetrating, environmentally friendly, water repellent which contains a proprietarly modified siloxane. This water-based siloxane penetrates up to 1/4 inch or more, depending on surface porosity and moisture content at the time of application. Force Field Nano Shield reacts with the minerals in concrete and pavers. This reaction forms a strong permanent bond beneath the surface and creates a superhydrophobic zone that prevents water molecules from penetrating, while allowing free migration of water vapors. The chemical bonds formed in this process allows Force Field Nano Shield to become an integral part of the substrate and provide long-term water repellent protection.
When a surface is Superhydrophobic it is extremely repellent for water and other materials. One of the most well-known examples of a similar surface can be found in nature: lotus leaves are recognized to be superhydrophobic and self-cleaning due to the waxy low surface energy material and hierarchical roughness of their leaf surfaces. The measure of this surface wetting phenomena, including superhydrophobicity, is a contact angle of a drop of liquid material (for example, water) on substrate’s surface. Force Field Nano Shield creates superhydrophobic surfaces.
The self-cleaning effect of a lotus leaf is caused by debris being attracted to a rolling drop of water on the leaf’s surface. Due to an extremely low surface energy of a lotus leaf, any contaminants are attracted to a water drop and are removed from the leaf surface as the drop moves across and rolls off of the leaf. Similarly, when a surface is treated with Force Field Nano Shield particles of dust and debris adhere to the water droplets as they move across of the treated material. When a surface is graded on an incline, rain will completely wash away dust and debris. On flat or level surfaces, dust and debris will adhere to water droplets but minor rinsing may be required to move them off the surface.
Over the years you will save literally thousands of dollars in maintenance and pressure washing costs. And you will be spared the embarrassment of having ugly mold stains on your house and unsightly oil and mold stains on your driveway.
