Ver.1.1. dated: November 7, 2016
Applications polishes Pikatec is very simple, but we saw some clients the respect of the word "nanotechnology" and subsequent fears of an application.
No need to worry, because the complexity is exactly the same, such as with waxing surface. Easy to clean - you apply - rozleštíte and wait 12 hours . Finally, after about two days, rinse or wipe the surface in order to "start" hydrofobního (odperlovacího) effect.
But we want everyone to understand the principle nanokosmetiky and we know that the majority does not solve it, but some people are very careful attention to detail who is satisfied only when the will understand how it works. Therefore, in this article we try to describe in detail all the details that you may encounter when applying and just explain what and how best to implement. The following content will guide you on this issue with the fact that the material, or simply read the entire article and become a sort of "experts" on the issue of nanotechnology J.
This passage is devoted to tips on how to prepare surfaces, how to apply cosmetics Pikatec, what to avoid and what protection to expect. This passage from time to time we supplement it with new knowledge and therefore for simplicity we will refer to numerical series as well as in computer software.
Pikatec polishes are very sticky and durable . Rather the problem is to eliminate even though there are some ways that cause adhere. In particular, where on the surface will remain residues of previous protections, waxes, oils, impregnation, fabric softener and fatty components.
Polishes have been developed for different surfaces with respect to the unique structure of each surface. It is virtually impossible to create a universal polishing (ie. 3 1 or 5 1, as it is today, modern), because of such universal polish should be for each surface only, for example 60% of their good qualities. We arrived shame not to utilize the best characteristics and hence we have for each specific surface special kind of protection, including a variety of nutrition and vitamins.
We have two basic types of carrier emulsions protective polishes (except for the product Nano Protect textile) that are best distinguished by their color and the white and slightly transparent. White with rozlešťuje after about 30 minutes and the clear after about 5 minutes.
Polishes have many of its great features:
The only immediately visible property is hydrophobicity . With it, water on the surface instead of the "water map" and "puddles" turns on beads, which tend to immediately from the surface to roll. For some materials is greater hydrophobicity, some slightly smaller. This property can sometimes temporarily lose customers, which sometimes mistakenly led to believe that the varnish from the surface has been lost. Usually it is not so and subsequent washing and degreasing again this property returns. Polishes Pikatec have a very long shelf life even if temporarily not working just mentioned hydrophobicity, and other properties operate unchanged. After polishing time is lost, but this time it is at least a year and for internal use for two years or more. Logically, it depends on your own stress given surface (eg the floor in a public building, where every day thousands of people pass through, it will certainly have less resistance than the floor at home). Where has access to sunlight or other source of radiation after one year fade resistance to UV radiation. Polish the upper floors of the structure slowly eliminated (unseen effect) and after that durability is lost naturally as well as the effect of hydrophobicity. Our company recommends polishes vary (ie. Simply painted over) once a year, in the interior, where they have no access to sunlight as needed.
In principle, only one rule. All surfaces before application must discard all previous protections, waxes, oils, impregnation, fabric softener and fatty components. This is because that the polish can well follow to the treatment surface. Furthermore, it is necessary to remove from the surface any stains (grease, dirt, scale, etc.), Which we do not want to remain surface.
Imagine the surface of any material under a microscope. Not smooth, looks more or less like a mountainous landscape, each material has its own specific characteristics. In the valleys of the countryside has long been settled dirt and dust (see. Figure 1). For example, over the untreated long glass it is harder to see, settles in the pores thereof, inter alia, water stone, which is then difficult to remove. Untreated surfaces act to change sends.
Figure 1 - Surface with dirt deposits
Surfaces that can grind wears down, others with appropriate cleaning products Pikatec cleaned and then thoroughly rinsed and freed of detergent residues. Cleaners cleans cosmetics PIKATEC this mountainous landscape (the skin's surface, stone, glass, stainless steel, etc.) is perfectly established from dirt and dust. This will be assisted microscopic nanoparticles and other proprietary chemical elements that are contained in the detergent. The nanoparticles penetrate into all the creases surface and get rid of it completely dust and dirt. (See. Figure 2).
Only cleaned and optionally degreased surface is ready for applying a protective polish PIKATEC (see. Figure 3). The better the surface cleaned and possibly degreased, the better the grip and durability subsequent polishes. Every surface must be thoroughly rinsed after cleaning from various cleaners, detergents, etc.
If we suspect that the surface is not sufficiently greased, so it just prior degreased agent Nano Surface Clean and degrease even stronger Nano Clear Glass. Do not use other degreasing agents, eg. Benzine, because they may contain undesirable compounds, in particular petrol technical kerosene, which are greasy and substantially reduce adhesion and hydrophobicity final polishes! Degreasing agents Pikatec for sure, use a small area where it is not seen to be sure that the surface does not fade, do not change color or otherwise, there are no other spots.

Thus, sanded or cleaned, rinsed and degreased surface is ready for application of the appropriate polish. Detailed instructions can be found on each product.
The new furniture solving anything, and only remove wax residues and polishes strong concentrate agent Nano Clean Home, with older furniture is the best case for outdoor furniture or wood can be sanded lightly with fine sanding paper. It is not necessary to sharpen the effect of new wood, everything depends on the condition of the surface we have. Sometimes leave stains or blackened parts in inaccessible places, partly to impress the surface of the natural patina that looks to many eyes were better than carefully polished wood that looks too new. Finally, it must be possible sawdust duly flushed with water and allow to dry wood surface. If we suspect that the surface is not sufficiently greased, so it just prior degreased agent Nano Surface Clean and degrease even stronger Nano Clear Glass. Do not use other degreasing agents, eg. Benzine, because they may contain undesirable compounds, in particular petrol technical kerosene, which are greasy and substantially reduce adhesion and hydrophobicity final polishes!
It is also important to remember that when the wood is painted, so they are treating the painted surface and is necessary for the use of Nano Protect Painted Surface.
It is here to be divided into absorbent (e.g. sandstone, limestone, etc.) And non-absorbent (e.g. granite, etc.). Materials. Absorbent materials is generally more difficult to clean and prepare, because the dirt is often already "ingrained" into the surface.
Stone before application must discard all previous protections, waxes, oils, impregnation, fabric softener and fatty components. Further, if necessary, it is advisable to clean the rock means Nano Clean Stone. In the event that the surface material is also absorbent, have really been tarnished, aged stains from dirt (eg. Outside stone fences sandstone sculptures, statues, etc.), We recommend that the affected area properly sprayed concentrate Pikatec Nano Clean Stone and let act as needed. We succeeded very solidly to remove some stains aged up to 14 days of such effectiveness of our cleaning agent. Finally, the stone with water thoroughly, preferably pressure and let dry.
Absorbent material is required before applications will not degrease, non-absorbent and smooth, we're not sure where the surface lightly grease recommended to degrease agent Nano Surface Clean and degrease even stronger Nano Clear Glass. Do not use other degreasing agents, eg. Benzine, because they may contain undesirable compounds, in particular petrol technical kerosene, which are greasy and substantially reduce adhesion and hydrophobicity final polishes!
Glass, ceramics, glass-ceramics, painted surfaces, Lacquers
Surfaces cleaned of debris, stains and scale, and the remaining polishes or waxes suitable means, eg. A strong concentrate of Nano Clean Home or thoroughly wash off. Then we recommend to degrease the surface of the device Nano Clear Glass. Do not use other degreasing agents, eg. Benzine, because they may contain undesirable compounds, in particular petrol technical kerosene, which are greasy and substantially reduce adhesion and hydrophobicity final polishes!
Stainless steel and chrome
Surfaces cleaned of debris, stain and scale appropriate means. Because especially the brushed stainless steel surface is often treated by various types of oils, so there must be properly ensured final degreasing. The surface should first wash with warm water with a strong detergent concentrate Nano Clean Home. Finally, we recommend to degrease the surface of the device Nano Clear Glass. Do not use other degreasing agents, eg. Benzine, because they may contain undesirable compounds, in particular petrol technical kerosene, which are greasy and substantially reduce adhesion and hydrophobicity final polishes!
Surfaces cleaned of debris, stain and scale appropriate means. In the event of dingy plastic or black spots we recommend cleaning agent Clean Plastic Nano. Sometimes surfaces are already stained (for example, plastic furniture or plastic exterior window, summers resistant to sunlight and UV radiation), it is already impossible to clean them mere chemical method. On the surface is already very thick layer degraded, dilapidated plastic (polymer). It is necessary to use a chemical-mechanical method. Just take fine abrasive paper or cloth and using a means of nano Clean Plastic gentle circular motions deleting (odbrušujete) in such an emulsion that destroyed a layer of plastic, down to the original surface (grind dry sandpaper because you almost will not). Provided is a layer of dirt is very strong, so changing paper roughness on rougher when you go to remove this layer. However, it is important that you have the final grinding again used a very fine structure grinding skins (at least 400 roughness) and because of that the final surface was again very finest. Finer finish better protects and treats.
Then we recommend to degrease the surface of the device Nano Surface Clean and degrease even stronger Nano Clear Glass. Do not use other degreasing agents, eg. Benzine, because they may contain undesirable compounds, in particular petrol technical kerosene, which are greasy and substantially reduce adhesion and hydrophobicity final polishes!
Covering polish Superstructure
Since this is a cover polish to the already applied the polish to increase hardness and resistance to the exposed surfaces must be original surface polish (if they have not been carried out) duly flushed with warm water and concentrate formulation Nano Clean Home to remove the emulsifier (refer to "how to re-start odperlovací effect ") and then degrease agent Nano Surface Clean and degrease even stronger Nano Clear Glass. Do not use other degreasing agents, eg. Benzine, because they may contain undesirable compounds, in particular petrol technical kerosene, which are greasy and substantially reduce adhesion and hydrophobicity final polishes!
Figure 3 - Clean the surface
Leather must be cleaned first, this means Nano Clean Leather instructions. Then we recommended to wash with warm water and concentrate formulation Nano Clean Home or wash away from the structure of the skin dirt and detergent. Leave to dry your skin thoroughly. As already stated in the instructions to protect the skin, the composition is not suitable for suede leather and polished leather Alcantara typu because here prefers dry skin effect. Treat such skin but can be a means of Nano Textile Protect. It is perfect for suede shoes, etc.
It will be appreciated that the textile thread consists mostly of large amounts of even thinner fibers entangled into each other, which are flexible, but continuous washing crack and shake until eventually causes cracks in the fabric and holes. As a result, at the end of life of the fabric apart. These fibers come grease and dirt that conventional washing is removed, but for example a solid and a chair seat covers can not be washed, thus must be occasionally umýt soapy water. At these substances may also be grease from sitting people, and you must also remove and clean.
On the treated fabrics (shirts, jackets, jeans) must be applied when washing fabric softener! Then remove, wash if the laundry is only detergent without fabric softener.
On shoes, especially new textile or suede is surely different impregnation by the supplier or manufacturer of leather shoes. These impregnation remove with a sponge or non-absorbant cloth degreasing agent Nano Clear Glass. Degreasing agents Pikatec for sure, use a small area where it is not seen to be sure that the surface does not fade, do not change color or otherwise, there are no other spots. After drying textiles or suede ready for spraying device Protect Nano Textile. When, for example, to delete the original suede shoe impregnation, protection may Pikatec applications on shoes with this impregnation mix and the result is indeed impervious to water, but odperlovací effect in the form of immediate odvalování water droplets from the surface occurs. Shoe repair is thoroughly clean with Nano Clear Glass and re-apply Nano Protect Textile instructions. Then the desired effect come.
Polishes the view of the application can be divided into two basic groups - absorbent and non-absorbent materials.
Figure 4 - Applying application emulsion PIKATEC
Do not let us return to the concept of thin film: -Thin layer is to be held against the light can only see matte film protective agent, not more. Provided Apply more of protective equipment neuškodíte useless, only more work rubbing the car, increasing consumption and polishes the person knows what the grip polishes Pikatec. Polishes, particularly clear (those for which, in the manual indicates that rozlešťování is a power of about 5 minutes after application), where it was deposited extremely strong layer polished-over so that on the place you want rozleštit, sprayed composition Nano Clear Glass and immediately rozleštíte. You do not have to worry that you dilute the bottom layer of polish. Dilute and thus wipe only the top portion of a property that does not hurt. Only you will have unnecessary consumption means Nano Clear Glass.
Some clients also nanesli (e.g. to the desktop granite kitchen) thick, which after 12 hours still very glossy, as if it were wet to the touch operated slightly sticky. Polish in a thick layer dries very slowly. In this case, it should also be wiped off using a polishing agent Nano Clear Glass and keep the instructions properly dry.
Gross and patterned plastics behave similarly, unless polish sprayed directly into the structure of patterned plastic polish Zatec there and if you will not manage rozleštit rag, so this place can make a shiny spot. Again it should be thinned lightly spraying Nano Clear Glass and at this point rozleštit. However, it is better to apply the polish on to the sponge (accessory Pikatec) light pinching houbičky this polish to get into the structure of the foam and thus only wipe patterned plastic. White plastic and smooth any colored plastics and of course rozlešťují very easily and in any manner. This passage simply highlights some materials and structures, which when applied to any means, would cause the application of temporary spots.
The same method of application is required by the perforated leather to polish leaking into the perforations in the material and nezalepovala it. So apply the polish on to the sponge (accessory Pikatec) light pinching houbičky this polish to get into the structure of the foam and thus only wipe perforated (perforations) skin.
Polishes recommended to apply as soon as possible, wait until the end of expiration (usually more than one year) since the time of them roam the active ingredient, as in other chemicals. This is the reason why Pikatec supplies for some, only a small amount of polish, suitable for the required treatment area size. We want to ensure that clients always use fresh polishes the best characteristics and to not use the means that they often several years lying on the shelf. That is why exclusively sell our products through our e-shop, because that these unplanted on the shelves of other retailers, often improperly stored.
The last guideline is improperly stored polishes. The ideal storage temperature is indicated on each pack means. It is also good to store in the darker areas. Provided is a polishing will appear already too stiff (stored in heat), so it can be easily diluted (up to 1:10), namely:
But it is not a perfect guideline and must reckon with a slight loss of hydrophobicity and other properties. But it is a better solution than the actual polish blow. Other guidelines for the application can read individual instruction.
This film is allowed to act on the surface for several minutes (the exact time for each product specified in the following instructions). Polish flows into the surface structure. For some absorbent material is recommended for the second layer. After a few minutes, the layer of polish PIKATEC, in most cases polished-over via the application cloth (see. Figure 5). This unique emulsion penetrates deep into all surface imperfections (for the concept, all valleys mountainous landscape). Layer that extends over the mountain peaks, is unnecessary and simply be wiped away.
When we do not push too rozlešťování rag, because the purpose of polishing is a "push" polish the material structure (not her immediately after application wipe) and allow to dry. Excess protruding through the structure of the material, then wipe off. We must remember that polishing after applying a few hours soft and then hardens as stone. Hardens, however, only in a thin layer, a very thick layer will dry very long (several days) and not the purpose that extends over the structure of the material, on the contrary. Definitely nerozlešťujte polishing machine! Certainly it a mop and your work would come to naught. Only clear polishes are slightly more difficult to rozlešťování there and do not be afraid to push. Simply thrust force at rozlešťování must be such that the polishing went rozleštit and it is unnecessary to push more than necessary.
Detailed instructions can be found on each product.
Figure 5 - polishing applications emulsion PIKATEC
Shora polish dries slowly and begins to exude from the emulsifier (carrier nanoparticles). On the surface thus get unwanted surpluses remains of base layers. Nanoparticles deposited in the structure to the final polish, a favorable position. Each pole single nanoparticles behaves polar, ie. at each end has another polar charge. This causes the PIKATEC nanoparticles to the substrate are compared in one direction. The second direction (on the surface) at the same time repels the negatively charged dust particles and other unwanted molecules.
During the next 12 hours the emulsion finally cured (see. Figure 6)
Figure 6 - Final cure polishes
On the surface will remain aligned nanoparticles, which holds the help of van der Waals or dispersion forces and of course with a new, revolutionary polishes. Forms a protective film greatly increases hardness and wear resistance of surfaces. Also achieves the final resistance to liquids (see. Figure 7 and 8).
Figure 7 - Reflection of a flying object from polishes PIKATEC
Figure 8 - Damage to the untreated surface of the flying object
Nanoparticles hold together perfectly. They are so small that they can not get between them no substantially larger dust particles or other aggressive surface damaging molecule. Simultaneously, these nanoparticles are sufficiently hard to resist other mechanical abrasive (abrasive) particles which would otherwise damage the surface.
As mentioned in each instruction, each coated varnish solidifies about 12 hours, which depends on temperature and humidity. Generally, the lower temperatures and higher humidity, the longer curing time.
During this time the structure is in crystalline lattice and nanoparticles to swing in a favorable position. Controlled polymerization occurs and polishes the surface emulsifiers are excreted. On the surface thus get unwanted surpluses remains of base layers.
During this phase of curing can sometimes be observed, particularly on the dark surface formation světlých miniature particles which creates the illusion that the treated surface fell specks of dust, grease spots, or not polishing dostatečně polishing. It is a consequence of excretion emulsifier (carriers nanoparticles) (see. Figure 9).
Figure 9 - Remove excluded emulsifier, which must be within approximately 48 hours thoroughly washed off with water
These in themselves are hydrophobic and after about 24 hours (we recommend 48 hours) is a good idea to remove ideally with warm water and mild concentration of the formulation Nano Clean Home (where it is not possible to just rinse with warm water or wipe with a cloth moistened in warm water). The composition is finally rinse with tepid water. Leather seats and textiles do not rub at all! Absorbent materials, wood and stone either, as appropriate, be otřít cloth or rinse with water (eg. The pressure and preferably warm). After such rinsing nice to see how the water condenses into spheres, which roll off the surface. After each rinse before these properties some time to improve.
This property can sometimes temporarily lose, actually, it certainly happens after some time. At the time of polish adheres to certain elements or grease that negate the repulsive charge polishes. Drops cease to roll and for example, glass will form a kind of map of the water which flows slowly. However, this is only a temporary loss of surface tension on the surface polish as a reaction to some elements, eg. Grease, carbon fallouts like. The functionality polishes it has nothing to do itself and polish it does not harm! Just wash the surface with warm water and detergent, Nano Clean Home, or degrease agent Nano Clean and Nano Surface Clear Glass. The surface will immediately return to the original properties. Remember that due to jerk the surface, the wiping and washing the treated surfaces a lot easier than before.
Even faster and more efficient method to speed up surface hydrophobicity, the use of the device Nano Nano Activator.Prostředek Activator is designed to activate the hydrophobic properties of polishes Pikatec for a series of CAR and HOME funds except Nano Protect Protect Nano Leather and Textiles. Skin protection and textiles Nano Activator suitable!
Nano means Activator use in the event that you feel that water-repellency is protected surface is lower than you expected. It is pointless to use it in case the water-repellency is perfect, but the unnecessary use of the intrinsic properties of polishes worse. Take note, however, that the final water-repellency occurs after rinsing or wiping emulsifiers as indicated in the instructions, and after complete stabilization polishes. Nano means Activator Use for non-absorbent surfaces to the absolute stabilizing properties, ie. 3-5 days. Polishing a final hardness after 12 hodinch but polymerization processes etc., Are formed sometimes much longer (depending on the temperature, humidity, etc.). Meanwhile, surfaces can be washed and otherwise maintain.
For porous materials (wood, stone etc.), This time is much longer, there hydrophobicity recommend a final test after about three weeks. It is because the structure of polishes, thanks to a much higher absorbency and elimination of undesirable substances logically lasts longer than the non-absorbent surfaces, where the thickness of the polishing reaches only a few tens of nanometers. We remind you that the Nano Activator is a device intended only to activate the hydrophobic properties (water-repellant). All other properties such as hardness, UV filters, chemical resistance, etc., Are fully functional after drying the polishes, approximately 12 hours (at low temperatures and in high humidity, this period is extended).
Nano means Activator works on the principle of surplus removers and excluded emulsifiers and impurities from the surface of the cured varnishes (excretion of dirt and grease on the surface is one of the great features of our polishes). Imagine that these fatty particles on the surface are eliminated during drying and hardening polish polishes easily holds in its structure. Washing with warm water, the majority of the particles should be easy to remove and thereby start the hydrophobic properties of polishes. Some undesirable particles (e.g. fatty carbon particles) are applications polishes partially dissolved and eliminated on the surface and sometimes easily mechanically adhere to the surface polishes. These contaminants are water repellent and can be eliminated by simply rinsing shampoo concentrate, but it takes some time (the time these unwanted particles are washed out, but it may take months, depending on the frequency and concentration of washing detergent concentrates). The user is then mistakenly thinks polish on the protected surface is not, or it does not work.
It should be noted that each material has a different structure and for example, every glass has a different roughness. It's not that expensive and new cars must necessarily have the finest glass. In rough structures hold nečistoty logically better than fine. During manufacture, storage, distribution or traffic surface also each individually may clog more or less layer of impurities. It often happens that, even for example in a car after the application, the repellency of the rear window and side windows different. These impurities are sometimes referred to chemically complex and if they get into the structure unprotected surface can not practically be dissolved or otherwise removed in a conventional manner in the preparation of surface protective polishes.
Why polishes Pikatec buy? The most important reasons are two:
We want to finish microscopically smooth out that its structure was fine but that's not compared to the original appearance of the material to see. Nano particles are not completely visible to the human eye. Into smoothed structures fit impurities ubiquitous fatty particles of carbon material and thus does not over time thanks to the accumulation of impurities "send". Also, the smooth surface in it less accumulating bacteria which said carbon "feed".
Because we want to clean less frequently and when we clean, very quickly, because the dirt from smooth surface wipes faster and more efficiently than the gross. We also want to have a justified feeling that after cleaning the subjects again, not so fast staining.
Other reasons, such as protection against mechanical wear, chemical resistant, anti-UV, etc., Which we have already mentioned many times, is a byproduct of these properties.
