Frequently Asked Questions

CAN I USE THIS TO STOP MOLD STAINS ON BATHROOM TILE GROUT?

YES - CEMENT-BASED GROUT WILL PROPERLY ABSORB AND REACT WITH THE TREATMENT, VINLY BASED WILL NOT, ALSO, THE SPEED WITH WHICH THE SELF-CLEANING EFFECTS WORKS DEPENDS ON THE AMOUNT OF ILLUMINATION

CAN I USE THIS ON MY GARAGE FLOOR?

YES - THE CLOSING OF PORES OR DENSIFYING EFFECT WILL OCCUR EVEN IN THE DARK HOWEVER, THE SPEED WITH WHICH THE SELF-CLEANING EFFECTS WORKS WILL DEPEND ON THE AMOUNT OF ILLUMINATION ON THE AREA

WILL IT WORK IN A SHADY SPOT?

YES - THERE IS QUITE A BIT OF AMBIENT LIGHT EVEN IN THE SHADE, THAT IS WHY WE CAN COMFORTABLY READ A NEWSPAPER, THERE AGAIN, THE SPEED WITH WHICH THE SELF- CLEANING EFFECT WORKS WILL DEPEND ON THE AMOUNT OF ILLUMINATION ON THE AREA

ON WHAT DIFFERENT SURFACES CAN I APPLY?

WE HAVE TESTED SUCCESSFULLY IT ON CONCRETE, PAVERS, ROOF TILES, NATURAL STONE BRICK, CONCRETE COATED POOL TOPPING, UNSEALED HARD-SCAPES, AND MANY MORE, THESE SURFACES CONTAIN CALCIUM HYDROXIDE (LIME) - TYPE MATERIALS THAT WILL REACT WITH THE TREATMENT AND CLOSE SURFACE PORES, HOWEVER, ANY SURFACE THAT ABSORBS WATER WILL ABSORB THE TREATMENT; THE TREATMENT WILL OFTEN CLOSE THE PORES

THESE SURFACES PERMANENTLY, A PATCH TEST MAY BE NECESSARY ON THE SPECIFIC SURFACE

CAN I APPLY THIS ON PAINTED SURFACES?

WE DO NOT RECOMMEND APPLICATION ON PAINTED SURFACES, UNLESS THE PAINT IS INORGANIC, AS IS THE CASE WITH STAINS, OR COLORANTS, COMMONLY USED IN CONCRETE PAVERS OR MOST SAFETY YELLOW STRIPPED CURBS

CAN I APPLY THIS ON A TERRAZZO FLOOR?

YES - CEMENT-BASED TERRAZZO, COMMONLY USED OUTDOORS, IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE TREATMENT, A PATCH TEST MAY BE NECESSARY ON THE SPECIFIC SURFACE. APPLICATION ON EPOXY-BASED INDOOR TYPE TERRAZZO IS NOT RECOMMENDED

WILL IT EFFECT THE COLOR OF THE MY TREATED SURFACE?

NO - WHEN PROPERLY USED, TREATMENT IS NOT DETECTABLE, HOWEVER, IF THE TREATMENT IS OVER-APPLIED IT MAY LIGHTEN THE SURFACE COLOR. FOLLOWING THE APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS WILL PREVENT OVER-APPLICATION

WILL IT BE SLIPPERY WHEN WET?

NO - WHEN PROPERLY USED, TREATMENT IS NOT DETECTABLE, THERE IS NO EVIDENT CHANGE TO THE SURFACE COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION

WILL I EVER BE ABLE TO PAINT A SURFACE AFTER IT HAS BEEN TREATED WITH SELFCLEAN?

YES - THE SURFACE STILL ABSORBS PAINT, ALSO PAINT IS OPAQUE AND WILL PREVENT LIGHT FROM ACTIVATING SELFCLEAN

HOW LONG CAN I EXPECT THE SELFCLEAN TO WORK?

THE CHANGES IN THE CONCRETE ARE PERMANENT, WHEN PROPERLY APPLIED, WE HAVE SO FAR DOCUMENTED SELFCLEAN FUNCTIONALITY FOR 5 YEARS OR LONGER

I HAVE A RESTAURANT AND THE WALL AROUND MY OUTSIDE EXHAUST VENTS GETS VERY GREASY. WILL THIS WORK ON FOOD GREASE?

SELFCLEAN WILL CLOSE PORES ON ALL CONCRETE-TYPE CEMENTITIOUS SURFACES, EVEN ON VERTICAL APPLICATIONS - HOWEVER FOOD GREASE SITS ON TOP OF SURFACES AS WELL AS PENETRATES INTO ALL GROUND AND OTHER CONTACT SURFACES - WE RECOMMEND A MAINTENANCE PROGRAM TO GO ALONG WITH OUR TREATMENTS

DO YOU KNOW IF IT WILL STOP WEEDS FROM GROWING IN THE PAVEMENT CRACKS?

IT MAY, BUT THIS DEPENDS ON THE SUBSTRATE AND THE APPLICATION DETAILS; FOR EXAMPLE,

IS THE CRACK ILLUMINATED? HOW WELL DID THE TREATMENT SEEP INTO THE CRACK? DID THE CRACK OCCUR AFTER APPLICATION, ETC?

IF I LEAVE A CAR PARKED ON A TREATED SURFACE FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME, WILL SELFCLEAN DEGRADE THE SURFACE OF THE TIRES AT THE POINT OF CONTACT?

NO - SELFCLEAN REQUIRES SUNLIGHT TO WORK; THE TIRES WILL PREVENT ILLUMINATION.

IS IT ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY?

WE ARE ADVISED THAT THE TREATMENT SATISFIES THE LABELING REQUIREMENTS FOR GREEN PRODUCTS, AS DEFINED BY GREEN SEAL (ISO 14020 AND ISO 14024)

A.  IS SAFE FOR MY GARDEN, FLOWERS, TREES AND OTHER WILDLIFE?

B.  IS IT SAFE FOR CHILDREN AND PETS TO WALK/PLAY ON IT?

YES - A TREATED SURFACE IS NOT DISTINGUISHABLE FROM AN UNTREATED SURFACE SELFCLEAN PRODUCTS HAVE ZERO VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (V.O.C’S)

BREAKS DOWN HARMFUL POLLUTANT CONTAMINATIONS LIKE OIL, DIESEL FUEL,TRANSMISSION AND OTHER FLUIDS FROM VEHICLES.

SURFACES BECOME STERILE OF HARMFUL BACTERIA, FUNGUS, VIRUSES AND BIO-CONTAMINATION
