External waterproofing is the practice of protecting external walls from rain or other forms of water penetration. Adding external waterproofing treatments can prevent water from entering the property causing structural damage and mould within the property itself.
Water Repellent cream protects external material and preserves it’s permeability. This allows water to run off, helps the material to maintain it’s moisture balance, and reduces water ingress.
Waterproofing cream can be used to waterproof an external brick wall. Monitoring the wall for missing bricks and cracks in masonry are also effective methods
Many masonry protection creams can be painted over provided this is carried out within 3-10 days of the application. After 10 days, solvent based paints can be applied.
Different external waterproofing methods last for varying times. The Platinum AquaSolve-Pro Masonry Waterproofing Cream lasts for 20 years.
Take the usual labour hygiene into account.
PPE should be worn during application. See our Safety & PPE Products.
Consult label and material safety data sheet for more information.
AquaSolve-Pro Masonry Protection Cream should be applied to dry, porous surfaces. It should not be applied over sealed or painted surfaces and is intended for above ground use only.
Apply when rain is not forecast for the next 24 hours.
For the treatment to be successful it is necessary to check all joint and roof connections.
Hairline cracks up to 0.3 mm can be ‘bridged’ by AquaSolve-Pro Masonry Protection Cream, however, it may be necessary to fill wider cracks in brick / stonework and re-point using a suitable cement (see Repair Express Cement) or a lime based mortar.
After any re-pointing work it is advisable to wait 7 - 14 days for the mortar to cure before application of AquaSolve-Pro Masonry Protection Cream.
Dirty surfaces should be cleaned before the application of AquaSolve-Pro Masonry Protection Cream to the recommendations given in BS 8221-1:2000, (Code of practice for cleaning and surface repair of buildings. Cleaning of natural stones, brick, terracotta and concrete.)
Remove any loose mortar, dust etc., using a masonry brush.
When biological growth such as moss, algae or lichen needs to be removed, apply one of our Masonry Biocide Products in accordance with instructions.
Application to structures containing high levels of salt should be avoided.
AquaSolve-Pro Masonry Protection Cream has been formulated to be colourless once cured.
Slight darkening may occur when it is applied to some substrates, which will usually fade over time.
It is recommended that a small test area is treated before full application begins.
Apply by brush, roller or spray. Larger areas can be covered more quickly using roller application.
Details such as around windows are best covered by brush. Care should be taken to ensure that AquaSolve-Pro Masonry Protection Cream does not splash onto glass, paintwork, plants, etc. Any splashes should be cleaned away with warm soapy water.
AquaSolve-Pro Masonry Protection Cream appears white immediately after treatment – making it easy to tell which areas have been treated.
After 15 - 20 minutes from application, AquaSolve-Pro Masonry Protection Cream starts to penetrate into the masonry and the whiteness will fade.
After 24 - 48 hours the wall will have returned to its original appearance.
As AquaSolve-Pro Masonry Protection Cream is formulated to penetrate deeply into masonry it can take up to two months for a noticeable 'beading effect' to appear when rainfall strikes the wall.
The masonry will be resistant to light rain after 2 - 4 hours.
AquaSolve-Pro Masonry Protection Cream can be over-painted with water-based masonry paint, provided this is done within 3 – 10 days of application. After this time, a solvent based paint can be applied.
It is advisable that a test is carried out in a small area prior to full application to determine product compatibility.
Approx 5 m² per litre, however this can be greatly reduced depending of the porosity of the substrate. Single coat application.
