Australian coatings maker Nanokote has introduced ProGuard, a one-coat protective coating designed for use on highly stressed concrete surfaces.

Designed to meet new safety standards in road tunnels, ProGuard is a functional, opaque, organometallic coating (containing both organic and non-organic components) with a 30-year service life.

ProGuard was designed to meet new safety and environmental demands in tunnels.

The hybrid coating is formulated to resist temperature and UV radiation; acids, bases, solvents and other chemicals; moisture; diesel soot; rubber abrasion and other environmental influences.

ProGuard is designed to provide outstanding bond strength with substrates. Simple, chemical-free cleaning methods reduce maintenance time and infrastructure closings, according to Nanokote.

Concrete surface preparation requires only high-pressure cleaning.

Applications

ProGuard is designed to provide single-coat protection to a wide range of infrastructure, including:

• Underpasses

• Road barriers

• Railway tunnels

• Concrete walls

• Engineering structures

• Underground structures

• Exposed concrete

• Military buildings

• Concrete facades

• Ports

Selected Features
 
ProGuard is formulated to trigger chemical reactions with the surface that enable easy application on both new and old surfaces. The high-hide product can be applied on old and new concrete as well as old coatings and can be easily patched.

The fire-tested coating is designed to resist graffiti, abrasion, scratching, graffiti and mold.

Nanokote is a division of Micronisers Pty Ltd., a nanotech company that has worked closely with Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Research Organisation (CSIRO), Australia’s leading scientific research organization.

Nanokote was established in 2005 as a marketing and distribution company to specialize in nano surface coatings.
