The Science of the Coating

Porous Surfaces:
Aqueous Guard® Construction coatings for porous surfaces such as masonry and wood, enters the microscopic cavities of the substrate and reduces the capillary size. By doing this water can no longer pass through the capillaries, however vapour is still able to do so. This means capillary action will not pull dirt into the substrate keeping it cleaner for longer and making cleaning far easier whilst creating a water beading surface.

Non-Porous Surfaces:
For non-porous surfaces Aqueous Guard® Construction coatings quickly and effectively penetrate into surfaces to seal microscopic cavities, and leave a shiny smooth surface that is impossible to stain. The coating in many cases is harder than the surface it seals and improves scuff resistance. Due to the surface being completely sealed it is unable to oxidise eliminating corrosion and damage caused by harmful UV.

Aqueous Guard® Construction coatings have been restoring and protecting surfaces for over 10 years

Our experience with research and development of modern day technologies, allow us to restore, protect and enhance many surfaces found within the construction industry.

At Aqueous Guard®, it is our mission to find solutions to fix your problems, whether that’s to simply maintain the look of the original stone surface, increase the performance of a solar panel, reduce detrition of a windmill blade, have anti-graffiti surfaces on public buildings or bridges or to simply create a self cleaning glass surface, we have the solution at Aqueous Guard®.

  • Our partner Solar Cleaner Australia is busy coating panels with our tried and tested Aqueous Guard® Eco-Solar Coat. With the latest testimonial from a client stating: "Hi Scott, Just like to let you know how impressed I am with the improvement in my solar power generation is since the cleaning and application of the Nano technology. I received a rebate that was more than twice any amount I had received before!! While the clear weather may have had some impact the fact is after 4 years of regular rebates this was significantly more than any other quarter."
