Estotect SWR


A Surface Water Repellent and Waterproofer

Download Data Sheet

Description

Estotect SWR is a single component penetrating silane-siloxane system which penetrates into porous substrates and then reacts to produce a bonded hydrophobic lining to the pores. Although allowing passage of water vapour from the substrates it significantly reduces the absorption of water and water borne salts.

Estotect SWR does not discolour most substrates and has excellent resistance to weathering.

Uses

Estotect SWR ia a silane-siloxane based surface water repellent and waterproofer for the invisible protection of brickwork, cement plaster, concrete etc., including limestone and chalks. It is particularly useful for dipping precast work, tiles etc.

Unlike the normally available silicone water repellents, Estotect SWR is suitable for application on damp surfaces.

Advantages

  • Deep invisible penetration
  • Fully water repellent in 24 hours
  • Colourless and does not affect the original appearance
  • Allows walls to breathe
  • Minimises efflorescence
  • Good water repellency of up to 10 years
  • Can be applied on damp surfaces

Standards Compliance

  • BS 3826:1969

Application Instructions

Surfaces to be treated should be clean, free of stain and efflorescence. The application of Estotect SWR may be by brushing or spraying. When spraying is preferred, use a low pressure spray that will give a non atomised stream of liquid. When brush application is adopted allow for a run down of approximately 30 – 35 cm.

Limitations

Estotect SWR requires 24 hours of exposure to the atmosphere before it becomes fully effective, hence it should be applied in dry weather conditions.

Do not allow the material to be in contact with aluminium, glass and porcelain. Protect such areas before application.

Before application on neutral stones, carry out a test to observe any deleterious effects of iron staining.

Packing & size

Estotect SWR 20 Litre Pail
210 Litre Drum

Coverage

Estotect SWR 2.8m⊃ – 4.6m² per litre depending on the porosity of the surface.

One coat usually all that is necessary. However, on highly absorbent surface, a second coat is advisable.
