DampSolve Exterior Water Repellent is a Clear, Solvent-Based High Performance Water Repellent Treatment for use on Exterior Porous Surfaces.
Available in 5 Litre and 25 Litre Containers, Clear in colour, ready-to-use solution.
DampSolve Exterior Water Repellent is suitable for use on brickwork, concrete, stone, paving, asbestos and cement.
DampSolve Exterior Water Repellent can also be used to repel water on exterior wood that has previously been treated with a preservative.
Take the usual labour hygiene into account.
PPE should be worn during application. See our Safety & PPE Products.
All surfaces to be treated should be dry, clean and free from dirt, dust, oil, grease and organic growth.
Surfaces may be washed down with clean water but detergents of soap solutions should not be used.
Do not apply DampSolve Exterior Water Repellent for 2/3 days after rain. Defective mortar should be removed and replaced with new. The product will not be effective on materials that are unsuitable for exterior use.
DampSolve Exterior Water Repellent is ready to use and should not be diluted. Shake container before use.
The material should be applied liberally by soft bristled brush or low-pressure airless equipment avoiding mist forming by using a course spray nozzle.
On masonry a single application is normally all that is required but on porous surfaces a second application may be applied as soon as the first coat has dried. On wood, two coats are also required.
Treatment should start at the top and work down.
DampSolve Exterior Water Repellent cannot be over-painted therefore it should be used as a final application only, as it may affect the adhesion of subsequent coatings.
DampSolve Exterior Water Repellent should not come into contact with windows or other glazed areas, which should be masked to prevent splashes. In such instances contaminated areas should be wiped immediately with White Spirit.
Coverage will depend upon the porosity of the surface to be treated. Typical consumption is 2-4m² per litre, per coat.
