Silicoat SS-118 is an aqueous, solvent less, Silane Siloxane based water repellent. It is a high quality specialty product for impregnating both normal and reinforced concrete. This water-based silane penetrates most masonry and concrete pores and capillaries up to ¼ inch or more depending on surface porosity and moisture content at the time of application.
• Solvent less, aqueous and environmentally friendly
• Deep penetration of substrate due to small molecular structure gives added repellency
• Penetrating water repellent action at low dosage – fast water beading
• Reduction in water absorption reduces spelling due to freeze-thaw and efflorescence, thereby increasing the life of the substrate
• Retains original look of the substrate
Appearance Milky White Emulsion
• Dilute up to 1:10 to 1:12 by water for coatings
• Optimization of dilution may be required to obtain maximum performance on selected substrates. A test application is necessary on each surface to be treated to ensure compatibility, appearance and the desired water repellent result. Avoid application on non-porous substrate.
• Surface must be dry, free of standing water, clean of oils, dust, loose and foreign material.
• It will not inhibit water penetration through unsound or bigger cracked surfaces.
• Methods of application include airless sprayer, roller and brush. When a brush/roller is used, repeat application until the surface remains moist for a few minutes. For airless sprayers, apply until substrate is thoroughly saturated. Minimum 2 coats are recommended for proper result.
• Protect from inhalation of product. High winds may interfere with application. Do not apply if rain is expected within 6 hours.
Waterproofing of vertical external walls/cement plaster/ RCC
6 months from date of manufacture in the original container at ambient room temperature. Do not store above 38 degree Celsius.
PACKING : 5,10,25 kg packing
Service Life: The coating has an expected Life of ten years on a porous substrate subject to various realistic conditions.
