Stain Resistant Masonry Waterproofing

 

 

 

 

The Chargar Corporation of Hamden, Connecticut has introduced a new and unique masonry sealer that not only repels water but prevents staining on surfaces to which it is applied to because of its patented stain blocker. It resists motor oil, transmission fluids, diesel fuel, wine, ketchup, grease from grilling foods, soft drinks. Many  sealers are available which do a great job repelling water and moisture intrusion but fail at blocking the buildup of oil and staining type soils. Ultimate Stain Repellent has unique qualities, it doesn’t change the appearance of the surface and is not a film forming type sealer.

Save my chimney

Save my chimney

This picture is an example of a neglected chimney which over the years has been allowed to absorb water and the results are the damaged joints and the destruction of the whole chimney.  This chimney will require a professional to set up staging, cut out loose and bad mortar joints and then apply new mortar to the joints.  There are many clear sealers on the market, they all proclaim to be the best, use my product, but when you read the fine print they all work best when applied to a sound surface.  Clear sealers cannot take the place of mortar and sound solid bricks. Clear sealers, the active solids left behind in the pores of the masonry can only work properly when the mortar joints are tuck pointed tightly and the bricks don’t have spalling faces and the roof cap cannot have mortar missing.  The roof flashing must be in good shape or sealing your chimney will only stop some of the water.

Our products are always made with the highest quality resins and powders.  A technician is always available to offer assistance and guidance in using our products.

Masonry Water Repellents

How do you choose a masonry water repellent when there are many different types available. Siloxanes, Silanes, Silane Siloxane blends, Silicones, Acrylics.

Siloxanes are available in a water based solution and what is important is the solids content of a individual formula. Siloxanes generally work best when the percentage of solids is 10% and up to 40%. Once the water evaporates, you want the active solids to react within the masonry to form a water repellent polymer.

Siloxanes, Silane blends are available in water based solution. The active solids should be a minimum of 10% and up to 40%.  This blend works best when you have both a dense surface and very pourous surface in the same area to be sealed.

Silanes have a small molecule are are available in 20% solids and 40% solids in a VOC compliant solvent. Great for cold weather application and work best on dense masonry surfaces.

Silanes 100% solids contain high solids and have little or no solvents. They are VOC compliant and work best on very pourous surfaces

Acrylics both water based and voc compliant solvent based. Many different solids formulas available. 10% and up to 30%. Some formulas leave a sheen, some are flat, and some formulas darken the surface. Acrylics allow the surface to breathe but not as breathable as Siloxanes or Silanes. Best when used on very pourous concrete block, split faced block , and split ribbed block.
