When concrete and mineral substrates come into contact with water, they absorb an amount which depends on their porosity. Water is one of the most detrimental causes of structural damage such as cracks, frost damage, algae growth and salt corrosion. Much of this damage can be prevented or significantly reduced through the use of Siloxa-Tek 8500. The Siloxa-Tek 8500 is an invisible, non-film-forming sealer of mineral substrates that inhibits long term water absorption while remaining breathable.
Due to the special penetration effect, Siloxa-Tek 8500 permanently protects concrete against moisture from rain, dew or snow, against road salts and microorganisms. In addition, the nano technology used in the Siloxa-Tek 8500's formula help regulate concretes water balance, which increases the lifespan of the mineral substrate.
