TECH-DRY STABILISED EARTH WATER REPELLENT is a sealer designed to penetrate into the capillaries of stabilised earth or rammed earth and render the substrate water repellent. This water repellent zone reduces the absorption of water or efflorescence or other water-borne staining materials which are responsible for the bulk of the deterioration in rammed earth structures. The treatment will not significantly change the appearance of the substrates and the vapour permeability. However, a slight darkening of the surface may occur for some substrates.
Impregnation of STABILISED EARTH WATER REPELLENT to rammed and stabilised earth structures will prevent water damage such as damp walls, formation of cracks due to expansion and shrinkage, erosion, formation of mildew, moss and lichen. It assists in preventing reduced thermal insulation properties and increased heating costs.
STABILISED EARTH WATER REPELLENT is also suitable as a water repellent sealer for other masonry substrates including natural stones, concrete masonry, bricks, and tiles & grout.
