Smart Quartz Paint strengthens cement substrates


Skora brings a revolutionary offering in the form of a state-of-the-art Smart Quartz Paint. This technology has been developed by Skora through rigorous R&D that finally resulted in a coating system that possesses a unique set of attributes like no other in the industry.

Skora’s Smart Quartz Paint technology allows the coating to penetrate deep into the surface of the substrate which further renders the penetrated region extremely hydrophobic in nature. This is attributed to the Quartz-like structure of Smart Quartz Paint formed by the fibreglass technology that acts like a crystalline shield against moisture. This ultimately creates a dry zone beneath the coating which prevents harmful algae and mould from forming. This technology, while rendering the surface of the substrate hydrophobic, does not block the pores of the substrate like film coatings would. This unique property also allows any existing moisture beneath the surface to easily escape the substrate rather than being locked within which would cause problems related to dampness over time. This smart attribute of Smart Quartz Paint allows cement based substrates to cure fully and build strength over time.

The dry zone created beneath the surface by Smart Quartz Paint protects the surface from salt and alkali attacks as well as prevents the formation of mould and algae that thrive in damp areas which ultimately degrade the integrity of the structure. Due to the hydrophobic nature of the Smart Quartz Paint, surfaces are rendered with a self-cleansing technology that washes away dirt and dust particles during rainfall.

Smart Quartz Paint technology reflects harmful IR radiation from the sun. IR radiation absorption causes surfaces to heat up which, in case of painted surfaces, causes paint to crack, flake, and eventually chip off the surface. The technology prevents this by reflecting IR rays keeping the substrate cool, preventing cracking. With the substrate kept cool and safe from cracking, UV radiation too cannot harm the paint quality over time.

This extensive set of smart attributes of Smart Quartz Paint has been rigorously tested to check the weathering effect on Smart Quartz Paint as opposed to conventional paints in the industry. These ongoing tests have resulted in Smart Quartz Paint being virtually unscathed and in extremely good condition as opposed to conventional paint and can outlast all conventional paint systems which have led Skora to boldly offer lifetime guarantee on its Smart Quartz Paint.
