Water that seeps into brick, mortar and stone can cause all sorts of issues from efflorescence and mineral staining to cracking and spalling due to freezing temperatures. Not all water repellents are the same. Enviro-Shield 40% WB is the water based version of our high solids Enviro-Shield 40%. It is a high performance, clear, penetrating water repellent sealer. It is designed to provide long term protection for brick, blocks, Jersey barriers, vertical or horizontal concrete and natural stones and other porous surfaces.
Enviro-Shield 40% WB is a water based high solids content masonry water repellent based on a silane/siloxane blend. Chemically reacting with masonry such as brick, block, natural and blue stone, Enviro-Shield 40% WB forms a highly effective poly-siloxane repellent. It is highly alkaline resistant and designed for use on brick, concrete block, precast concrete, stucco, limestone, field stone and many other natural stones.
Enviro-Shield 40% WB can also be applied to parking garages, flat concrete or masonry surfaces to reduce attack from deicing salts.
The advantages of Enviro-Shield 40%include:
- Working temps – down to 40°F
- Fast drying
- Deep Penetration into surfaces
- Non-film forming
- Does non contain wax, gum resins, silicas or silicones
- Unlike many water repellents Enviro-Shield 40% will not break down due to alkali in masonry.
- Resists water penetration for 10 years
- Highly resistant to acid rain
Brick and Stucco: 150 ft² per gallon
Blue Stone: 100 ft² per gallon
Sealing the masonry surface will prevent water and moisture from penetrating the surface. Water will also migrate in through cracks in joints or mortar, leaking roofs or dozen other ways. Weep holes are an important part of keeping a building dry by allowing trapped moisture to escape. Our Drain Only Weep Tubes efficiently wick away moisture while at the same time preventing insects, dirt and debris from entering the weep holes.
