Protective Waterproofing Cream for Masonry and Brickwork
Keeps walls and brickwork dry and protects from damp
Climashield™ Protective Masonry Cream is a VOC free, water based, protective treatment specially formulated to create strong water repellent properties on brickwork, masonry and render. The deeply penetrating Masonry Cream, once applied, is a very effective damp proofer that will form a strong barrier against damp penetration lasting up to 25 years.
The masonry protection cream provides long lasting protection from water penetration and the spread of damp in masonry and brickwork by filling the porous voids within the substrate without blocking them. This allows the masonry to release trapped moisture and to 'breathe', preventing moisture build up.
ClimashieldTM Protective Masonry Cream is not like the commonly seen waterproof paints and waterproof coatings that are available in DIY stores as it far more effective and lasts much longer. It will also retain the original appearance of the masonry so it is ideally suited for application to brickwork, stonework and most forms of unprotected masonry.
ClimashieldTM Protective Masonry Cream will also provide a highly effective additional barrier to flooding as part of any existing flood protection system.
ClimashieldTM Protective Masonry Cream will also increase the thermal efficiency of a property by keeping the walls dry - this can produce energy savings from an average of 6% to as much as 29%, if used in conjunction with other green deal systems.
Viscous cream based on Advanced Silane/Siloxane chemistry.
For best results, one heavy application of ClimashieldTM Masonry Cream on standard brickwork at 5m2 per kg is recommended. On dense, less absorbent brickwork or render, coverage can be increased by up to 10m2 per kg.
Store the product in a cool, dark place to prevent contamination when bacteria or fungal spores carried by air. Only open containers to remove the amount of product required and then close the lid once the product has been taken out. Once the containers have been opened, use up the complete contents as quickly as possible.
Can be applied by roller or paint brush. Due to its high viscosity, a simple, drip and run free application is possible. In general, only one heavy application is required. The cream will penetrate and absorb into the substrate within 30 minutes to several hours, depending on surface porosity. Once dry, the brickwork or masonry will be left with a dry/invisible finish.
