The coating will not create an effect on materials that do not absorb water by nature. After applying Nanoskin Stone & Concrete, the substrate acquires a super hydrophobic character, which can be observed when water is poured over the surface. This will result in a pearling effect of the water. Because of this hydrophobic characteristic, Nanoskin Stone & Concrete also offers optimal protection against moss and dirt. This will make it more difficult for them to adhere to the treated surface. There will also be less need for maintenance, which will save more costs. After treatment, the mineral surface will continue to breathe and retain its natural appearance. In other words, moisture can always flow outwards. The coating is completely transparent and colourless.
