WHAT ARE SILANE WATER REPELLENTS?
Hydrophobic impregnations are generally based on Silanes, Siloxanes, Siliconates, or a blend of these materials. Hydrophobic Impregnation is an invisible water repellent that is applied on concrete, brick or stone surfaces; it then penetrates into the pores and capillaries where it can very effectively increase the durability of the structure. Due to the mono-molecular material having a very small size, it penetrates or impregnates deeply and there is little or no change in the visual appearance of the structure.
Why use silane based material technology?
- Alkali resistant
- High volatility
- High mobility
- Highly concentrated
- No darkening of substrate
