The stated values represent typical product characteristics and are not to be construed as binding product specifications.
Field of application
- Impregnation of mineral substrates
- Protection of facades against driving rain
- Reduces susceptibility to dirt and green discolouration
- Porous, mineral building materials in outdoor areas
- Protection against driving rain when retrofitting cavity insulation and interior insulation
- Not suitable for materials that are sensitive to solvents, such as polystyrene or bitumen.
- Repels water
- Water vapour diffusion capable
- Improves resistance to frost and de-icing salts
- Can be applied sparingly, with absolute precision and with no losses
The substrate must be clean, dust-free and dry.
Any construction defects such as cracks, cracked joints, defective connections, rising damp and hygroscopic moisture must be remedied in advance.
The substrate must be free from biological contamination such as moss, algae and mould.
Perform any necessary cleaning gently, e.g. by spraying with cold or warm water or by steam-cleaning; use rotec soft whirl jet technology or Remmers cleaning products (e.g. Traffic Film Remover (0671), Clean FP (0666), Clean AC (0672), Combi WR (0675)) on tough stains.
Apply material undiluted using a roller.
Take appropriate measures to protect adjacent building elements and materials that should not come into contact with the product.
Protect freshly treated surfaces from driving rain, wind, sunlight and condensation.
Working tools / cleaning
Long-pile lamb's wool roller
Tools must be clean and dry.
Clean tools with water after use and before any lengthy interruptions to work.
Storage / shelf life
If stored unopened in its original container in a cool, dry place and protected against frost, the product will keep for at least 12 months.
Approx. 150 - 200 ml/m² depending on porosity
The amount of impregnation agent required should be determined on a trial area of a suitable size (1-2 m²).
Deviations from applicable regulations must be agreed separately.
The relevant test certificates must be observed when planning and carrying out work.
Water must not be allowed to penetrate behind the hydrophobized zone.
Carry out a quantitative analysis of aggressive salts if there are any salts present that could damage building materials.
High concentrations of harmful salts can cause major structural damage that impregnation cannot prevent.
The level of absorption is crucial for the impregnation agent to work at its best. This depends on the respective pore volume and moisture content of the building material.
The water absorption of mineral building materials can be determined using the Funcosil Test Tube developed by Professor Karsten (Funcosil Facade Testing Kit, article no. 4954).
Testing can only be carried out at the earliest 6 weeks after application.
Substrates with very low absorbency and highly textured surfaces should be treated with a liquid impregnation agent.
A test of effectiveness needs to be carried out on carbonaceous natural stone.
Larger quantities of leftover product should be disposed of in the original containers in accordance with the applicable regulations. Completely empty, clean containers should be recycled. Do not dispose of together with household waste. Do not allow to enter the sewage system. Do not empty into drains.
