Skora Smart Quartz: A superior coating system with added durability and dirt repellence
The Smart Quartz Paint technology allows the wall to breathe while the hydrophobic technology creates water beading and prevents water from penetrating into the surface says Nitin Kadam, Managing Director, Skora Paints.
What is the benefit of using a breathable paint on concrete and other masonry surfaces?
Generally, most concrete and masonry surfaces contain some flaws like hairline cracks, porous surface finish, air pockets and so on. These are weak spots where moisture can penetrate the surface and cause further problems like dampness, mould formation and the like. Using a breathable paint such as our Smart Quartz Paint allows the wall to breath by letting moisture escape in the form of vapour while preventing any further moisture from penetrating the wall from the outside.
How does breathability function in paints?
Typical acrylic film based coatings are closed in nature which act like a barrier for water going in and out, locking existing moisture inside the wall. This locked moisture escapes the wall eventually in the form of dampness, leakage and efflorescence by bringing with it salts, and attracts algae, moss, mould and mildew formation. This eventually degrades the integrity of the wall as well as the paint over time both aesthetically and physically.
To prevent this, we designed our Smart Breathing Paint to have an open porous unique Quartz like structure, the surface of the wall is left with microscopic pours that only allow moisture to exit in the form of vapour while simultaneously preventing water on the outside from penetrating the surface.
What is the advantage of Hydrophobic technology?
Our Smart Quartz Paint technology allows the wall to breathe while the hydrophobic technology creates waterbeading and prevents water from penetrating into the surface. The combination of these two properties makes our Smart Quartz Paint a superior coating system with added durability as well as dirt repellence.
What makes Skora Smart Quartz Paint so durable?
Our Smart Quartz Paint owes its extreme durability to the properties of low water absorption combined with high breathability. These properties are a result of the unique Quartz formulation that forms a strongly hydrophobic and waterproof layer to protect your walls.
Can anyone buy and/or apply your products on their own?
Sorry, no, we do not sell DIY products, we are a product as well as a service provider. Your local dealer or painter also cannot buy or apply our systems. Our Smart painters have undergone hours of training to follow all the protocols and instructions mentioned in the process so that we can always control quality.
Our Smart Quartz Paint has been developed using our very own Quad Coat Technology. As the name suggests, this involves the application of 4 crucial layers of coating that consist of 1 coat of primer, 2 coats of paint and 1 final coat of finish. All these coats if applied smartly, they work together to create the best possible waterproofing solution for your walls.
