Free downloadable CSI 3-part specification to specify water repellent coating by Prosoco, Inc.
Water repellent coatings are a product of the recent advances in technology. They are used to protect surfaces from water, oil, grease and other contaminants. The coatings provide an invisible barrier that repels water and other liquids from the surface of a material.
Water repellent coatings are used on vertical and horizontal surfaces, including the interior and exterior of historical projects, new buildings, bridges, roads, and parking garages. Coating provides a high level of protection from water penetration and damage due to freezing and thawing.
Coatings are often applied to concrete surfaces as part of a repair or renovation project for buildings and other structures.
The coating is not waterproof, so they may be less effective than a waterproofing membrane or panel. However, they can help prevent water penetration and damage due to freezing and thawing.
Recommended for metal, marble, granite, limestone, polished concrete floors, masonry, stone, travertine, clay materials, and resealing of water repellent surfaces.
The important characteristics of a good water repellent coating are durability (long-term performance), ease of application (ease of use), cost-effectiveness, long-term maintenance, and compatibility with existing materials.
