Marble, granite, natural stone and cement requiring stain and moisture protection. Ideal for kitchen benchtops, food preparation areas and walkways with exposure to grease and oil.
Unsightly stains devalue beautiful stone, cement, marble and granite surfaces. Microscopic analysis of these surfaces reveals vast networks of pores that readily collect moisture, debris and oils that cause the surface to lose its natural lustre and beauty.
SurfaPore M is a water-based nanomaterial designed to prevent oil and water from penetrating surfaces and creating stains. It contains a blend of specially designed nanoparticles that penetrate deep into pores and capillaries to create an inorganic moisture and oil barrier. These hydrophobic and oleophobic nanoparticles have organofluorated coatings that can withstand extreme temperatures up to 350°C, so SurfaPore M is ideal for kitchens. UV has no affect on SurfaPore M, so there is no yellowing and it does not break down.
How to Apply
Surface Application: Surface should be dry and clean. Apply SurfaPore M by brush, roller or by spraying. Do NOT dilute. After about 15 minutes, before SurfaPore M dries completely, remove application excess with a wet, soft cloth and polish the surface. For extra protection of very sensitive surfaces reapply within 3 hours after the first application. Maximum efficiency is achieved 7 days post application. Coverage: 12-18 m2 per litre, depending on the absorption properties of the application surface.

Not hazardous according to Council Directive 1999/45/EC and its subsequent amendments. Request, read and comprehend the MSDS. Avoid freezing. Expiration Date: Two years after the production date.
International Standards Testing
ASTM E514 – Pressure Driven Water Resistance:
Five, one centimetre thick SurfaPore M modified natural stone samples of (modified on both sides) were exposed to constant 500Pa pressure for 120 hours.
Reduction of Water Penetration: 85.4% ±2%
Reduce of Water Leakage: 97.1% ±2%
Stability under Ultra Violet (UV) Irradiation:
SurfaPore M exhibits at least 3 times more resistance to UV irradiation than traditional, solvent based water repellents.
Water Vapour Permeability Loss:
Water Vapor Permeability was determined as the rate of water vapors “travelling” through a 1 centimetre thick porous stone sample.
Vapor Permeability Loss: 2.12% (surface application).
Stain Resistance EN ISO 10545- 14:
SurfaPore M modified surfaces are not susceptible to staining and exhibit Class 5 Stain Resistance.
