Stages
Steel Guard Nanocoat TM acts on the martensite layer of the TMT rebars and forms a NANO COMPOSITE (Coat is generated from the martensite portion and Nanocoat does not form a layer / film on the surface separately.

There are 3 major physical stages of Steel Guard Nanocoat TM while it transfers from liquid steel guard to a strong, hard and tenacious crystal on the martensite surface.

STAGE 1: In the beginning , Steel Guard Nanocoat TM possess a low viscosity , just like water when it is in contact with steel.


STAGE 2: Upton the 1st 4 – 6 hours, Steel Guard Nanocoat TM while reacting with steel makes a complex crystalline structure, becomes very sticky & viscose before the formation of fully mature crystals.

During this stage, water and other solvents in the formulas get evaporated and due to this evaporation and continuous reaction, Steel Guard Nanocoat TM becomes very sticky & viscose before the competition of the whole process.

STAGE 3: In this stage after 6 -10 hrs. though the Nanocoat seems to have dried, it does not dry actually and the process of forming Dense Forest of Micro Crystals is at its top speed. This process continues for the next 14 hrs. i.e. total of 24 hrs.

At this stage, Steel Guard coated surface should not come in contact with water because the prematurely developed micro crystals gets hydrated and change their colour to chalkish white.

Therefore, for the formation of inseparable NANO COMPOSITE, curing of 24 hrs. is essential. However, this curing time can be reduced further by applying different methods.
