CRAKGON – it’s like Botox for your walls
My mum used to say that she didn’t have wrinkles, they were just laugh lines. In that case, she must have absolutely cacked herself for years. The truth is everything ages, but where do you draw the line? What weapons are at your disposal when your walls get fissures, chalk up, start to alligator, corrode, blister, get discoloured with rust run-off or play host to mould and mildew? Restoring walls used to be a messy, time consuming and costly business. But now there’s CRAKGON, the revolutionary product that allows you to solve any number of surface problems. You simply paint all those defects into oblivion with a highly resistant protective barrier that protect your walls for years.
A comfortable old age is the reward of a well-spent youth. Instead of sad and melancholy prospects of decay, it brings hope of eternal youth in a better world – Maurice Chevalier
But how does it work? CRAKGON is essentially a non-woven paint reinforcing tissue of randomly dispersed continuous C-glass fibres. These fibres act like the steel-rod grid in concrete structures, enhancing durability and preventing cracks appearing in the reinforced paint system. A single layer of CRAKGON and good quality paint can give you an impermeable, highly abrasion resistant, hygienic and long lasting protection barrier.
And what do the egg heads say? Longitudinal tests conducted by the National Building Research Institute of the Council for Scientific & Industrial Research (PRETORIA, South Africa) indicate that CRACKGON delivers outstanding results over a 10-year timeframe. So laboratory tests prove that CRAKGON prevents the reappearance of surface cracks for over a decade!
Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength – Betty Friedan
CRAKGON is easy on the eyes, ears and throat too. It’s made from continuous monofilament glass fibres exceeding 6 micro metres in diameter, so they cannot be inhaled by humans. Protective gear is generally not required, unless you have highly sensitive skin. Most importantly, however, it WORKS! Your walls will be protected from fissuring, mildew and UV weathering effects.
Even if you’re familiar with CRAKGON, you’ll be relieved to know that case study after case study simply confirms its amazing properties. A hotel owner in Portugal had 150 doors in desperate need of repair after they were left unsealed at the top and bottom. CRAKGON to the rescue, add a lick of paint and 150 doors were instantly saved! In another case, a fishing trawler was painted with CRAKGON to test its moisture resistance and rust prevention qualities. After a year in the water, no discolouration and no rust! Now the whole fishing fleet is being painted and there is considerable interest from container ships! So if you’re looking for a breathtakingly simple solution to peeling and cracking walls, you can’t go past CRAKGON.
