Silane/siloxane water-based water-repellent
BATIMIX Water Repellent 160 is a silane/siloxane water-based compound. It is applied on concrete and mortar surfaces to minimize water penetration and efflorescence.
BATIMIX Water Repellent 160 is used to waterproof concrete, mortar, construction rocks, marble, mosaic, and various other substrates. It forms a network of insoluble water-resistant material within the pores of the cement matrix. It creates an effective internal barrier that prevents water transmission. It is used to block capillaries and pores of concrete and masonry. It provides effective water repellency protection of treated materials. It is particularly suitable for waterproofing calcareous building materials and sand-cement mixes. It is also used in the treatment of rising damp found in areas like basements and tunnels.
BATIMIX Water Repellent 160 significantly reduces moisture regain by treated materials. It increases their lifetime, limiting the growth of moss and helping control efflorescence. It reduces sensitivity to freeze-thaw. It cuts down heat losses and cleaning costs. It effectively blocks the passage of water by penetrating the pores of the treated material. It allows the substrate to breathe as it does not affect the permeability to gases. The substrate is protected with one application.
BATIMIX Water Repellent 160 is not a hazardous material. However, it should not be swallowed or allowed to come into contact with skin and eyes. Suitable gloves and goggles should be worn. For additional information, kindly refer to the product’s Material Safety Data Sheet.Reference:MK-PR-5937
