Transparent Waterproofing for Decorative Surfaces such as Stone, Brick and Terracotta
Our transparent products are ideal for waterproofing decorative coatings such as stone, brick and terracotta without changing their original colors. First of all, the surface to be treated must be cleaned with a relevant method (such as pressured water, sandblasting, etc.). When the surface is completely dry, it should be saturated with Saysilox from the top to the bottom. The best method is to apply Saysilox with a brush, roller and sprayer, and then to apply a second coat before the first coat dries up. Saysilox will become water-repellent as soon as it dries up. It will take a few days to complete its cure.
Although the pearl effect will decrease after a few months the surface will remain totally water-repellent. This application creates self-cleaning surfaces, so all the dirt or dust accumulating on the surface will always be washed away with the rain before they permeate deeper and blacken the surface.
Saysilox does not inhibit the breathability of the surface while preventing water from permeating into the coating (Figure 1-2). Saycoat transparent coating can also be utilized in this application. Unlike Saysilox, Saycoat forms a transparent film on the surface it is applied. Depending on the amount applied, it creates a slightly damp to completely wet brilliance (Figure 3). So it would not be aesthetically convenient to apply Saycoat partially; it should be applied to the whole surface.
