Nanotechnology, the new buzz word for many applications, now makes its way into the boating industry and offers significant performance and environmental benefits.
Nanotechnology Boosts the Performance of a New Marine Teak Coating
Sydney, Australia | Posted on April 16th, 2007
Nanovations Teak Guard Division has released its new Teak Guard™ Marine product. Utilizing the well-developed science of nanotechnology, the product absorbs the most damaging rays of the Sun's spectrum. The Teak Guard™ Marine coating protects your boat's teak for longer in the harsh solar radiation in Australia and around the world.
The release of this innovative product follows more than 4 years of extensive research conducted by Nanovations and its research partners. The result is a high-tech wood finish that has unique properties not seen in comparable teak coatings.
The product contains a targeted blend of nanoscale active ingredients specifically tailored to allow deep penetration of the coating into the wood grain, enhancing the natural and long-lasting properties of teak such as water resistance, strength, an attractive finish, and its use in non-slip decking.
The nanoscale UV absorber in Teak Guard™ Marine provides high durability of the coating, but without reducing the transparency of the impregnation, leaving the Teak looking natural. The clear, fast drying coating is the only one of its type to prevent significant graying of the wood.
The micropores of Teak Guard™ Marine allow water vapour to escape from the teak, preventing flaking, peeling and cracking. The impregnation also provides much longer protection than normal teak oils from water absorption, mildew and invasive microorganisms, and is also free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and environmentally damaging solvents.
The water repellent properties and a high stain resistance against the most common food spills making Teak Guard™ Marine a multifunctional, all-in-one solution the industry has been seeking.
"We're committed to developing sophisticated coating solutions that are more effective and more environmentally friendly than currently available marine applications," says Harry Stulajter, one of the Directors of Nanovations Teak Guard division.
"Teak Guard™ Marine contains the most advanced UV absorbers and UV blocking technology available today. Teak Guard™ Marine's water-based technology outperforms any solvent-borne coating in convenience, durability and non-toxicity. This leap in technology bridges the gap between the limitations of the past and the demands of today's market."
Teak Guard™ Marine is also cost-effective because of its low consumption rate and durability, and will provide you with peace of mind that your boat is protected from the elements.
