Masonry Shield 1 – Water Repel
This product was developed through our work with the cladding system manufacturers and, with amendments, is now used on all masonry to prevent water ingress but still allowing the façade to “breathe”.
We are working with local councils on waterproofing their housing stocks, be they brick, stone, brick-slip or render.
The use of mineral wool as the insulant on new builds and refurbishment contracts has increased the interest in, and application of, this “water repellent”, as the prevention of moisture laden insulant is essential.
The prevention of water penetration on masonry, especially brick, will also inhibit the appearance of efflorescence, as the activation of latent “salt” is curtailed and the capilliary reaction of bringing salt crystals to the surface does not take place.
MS No 1 can be used in conjunction with MS No 5, our Salt Neutraliser.
