BK-AquaPhobe is a colorless hydrophobic silane and siloxane based impregnation, intended for outdoor and indoor use. It is suitable for application as a finish or as an additive to cement mixtures to improve the hydrophobic features of the material. It is recommended for impregnation of mineral and synthetic facade renders, bricks, tiles, natural stone, concrete surfaces, grouting compounds, etc. The product is designed to protect mineral surfaces from excessive water absorption and aggressive chemicals from the air that can damage and deteriorate the appearance of buildings and monuments. It reduces the occurrence of eflorescence on mineral surfaces, decreases the likelihood of microorganisms and moss developing on the shady parts of the facades.
PREPARATION AND APPLICATION
Shake the material well in the package before use and then apply the undiluted product using the soft brush, roller or sprayer. To achieve deep penetration and a satisfactory effect, apply the coating until saturation according to the wet-to-wet principle. Remove any excess material from the horizontal surfaces after 10 minutes. The water repellent effect develops within 24 h of application.
The installation temperature should be in the range from +5ºC to +30ºC, and relative humidity max. 80 %. Do not apply under direct sun, wind, rain or fog. High humidity and low temperatures can significantly extend the drying time.
100-500 ml/m² depending on the surface to be coated.
