Idrosil self-cleaning for natural stones
CormiteC offers the Idrosil 1002 self-cleaning system for natural stone facades, offering a new micro-structured surface with the treatment of the particles giving a super-hydrophobic surface.
The rolling rain drops pick up the dirt particles.
This newly developed product combines the water repellency with the microstructure as seen at Lotus leaf, the so called lotus effect.
The contact angle for water on the layer is 170 deg to 180 deg.
The water bond to the surface is reduced to a minimum.
As a result, water full of dirt rolls off the facade and walls remain dry and clean, in particularly the rain sides of the buildings.
One of the applications is the treatment of historical buildings.
The deterioration of the frequently used sandstone, and the degradation of limestone and marl is also known.
For the use on historic buildings the limitations of the product should be taken into account.
The application can only be used for specific materials.
The substrate to be treated must be matt or semi glossy.
It is applicable to sandstone, limestone and similar products.
