Chewing gum, oil and stain repellent.
Enviroguard SP is a super oleophobic and hydrophobic coating, (it repels oil and water).
Enviroguard SP acts as an invisible surface barrier which stops discarded chewing gum from sticking strongly to brick, stone or concrete walkways, (not suitable for use on tar or asphalt).
All porous building surfaces can now be treated to make them resistant to staining from oil, graffiti, grime and water.
This revolutionary PTFE protective coating causes liquids to bead and roll away off
the treated surface, this enables floors and walk ways to stay clean and remain dry.
The Oleophobic reactions create a surface that repels oils.
PreventS chemicals, lubricants, and oils from staining and contaminating surfaces.
Helps to manage easier clean up of carelessly discarded chewing gum.
Maintains and protects surfaces that must remain clean and free from water, and oil.
Stops accumulation of grime and dirt from continuous foot traffic.

How does Enviroguard SP Surface Protection work.
Put simply, Enviroguard SP is formulated from a flurocarbon compound, very similar to PTFE, which is the coating used to make non-stick pans.
When water makes contact with the Envoroguard SP treated surface, the water molecules have a higher surface tension than the treated surface.
This ensures that these molecules are attracted to each other so they join together and form droplets.
The Enviroguard SP treatment repels the water droplets, which roll off, and this and keeps the surface dry.

(has a high surface tension).
Untreated base material gets wet as it strongly attracts the water molecules, nothing is there to stop the water from soaking in because it does not form beads.

(gives a low surface tension).
The water is repelled because the attraction forces between the water molecules is stronger than the treated base material, and the water forms a droplet.
Enviroguard SP is oleophobic so it effectively repels oil in just the same way as water.
