SILOX- Invisible Water Repellent
- Country of manufactureTurkey
SILOX is a solvent and silan-siloxan based surface impregnating and undercoat material which provides an invisible waterproof barrier in capillaries when it is absorbed by the surface it is applied. In spite of its perfect water-repellent effect it does not have any impact on water vapor permeability of the surface, and therefore allows breathability.
The surface to be treated must be inclined downstream. It can be applied for water insulation on absorbent surfaces like all types of concrete surfaces; mineral stucco; highly absorbent surfaces such as gas concrete, brick, tile, terracotta and travertine; mineral based natural and artificial stones; surfaces with mineral based paints; and monuments and statues constructed with these materials. It can be applied on the materials mentioned above at poolsides, balconies and terraces to protect them from liquid stains. Can be used as an undercoat prior to paint application.Glazed or non-porous surfaces such as ceramic, faience, glass brick, glass tile, glass mozaic (BTB), etc. Require special application methods. It provides water repellency at the joints of impermeable coatings like ceramic tiles, metal, glass, glassbrick, etc. It is not recommended to use underground where higher hydrostatic waterpressure may appear, on paints or under water.

An invisible material which does not form any film on the surface. It is the ideal material for the surfaces where the outlook must not change. Provides rapid water-repellent effect. It makes the surfaces self cleaning with rain. It has very good penetration ability. Ready to use in liquid form. Dries solid without causing stickiness. Does not form any layer on the surface. Has vapor permeability; provides breathability for the surface. Protects the surface from mold, mildew, fungus and moss formation by avoiding moisture which is an excellent environment for microorganisms to reproduce. Resistant to alkali environments. Provides heat economy by protecting walls from wetting. (5% humidity results in a loss of 30% in heat insulation value of that material). Its water-repellent effect avoids any damage which may be caused by expansion due to freeze and thaw cycles. It prevents chalking due to its resistance to salts.
The surface to be treated must be clean and dry, and free from grease, rust, dirt, mold, etc. Cracks and loose parts must be repaired. The surface to be treated for water insulation must be inclined downstream. Building elements such as window frames or panels must be protected during application.
SILOX surface impregnating material should be applied by using light ruff brush or by way of spraying. At least two or three layer application is recommended on high absorbent surfaces. Paint may be applied thereon after 24 hours. The application method is saturating the surface wet on wet at least two layers. If there is an other application on SILOX’s layer, should be applied one day later.
Cleaning Of The Tools
Rinse the tools with endustrial solvents after use.
Depending on surface porosity and absorbency, the consumption is 200-600 g/m2²at two layers.
