Posted onMarch 17, 2010


WATER-REPELLA is a penetrating, invisible and breathable sealer that protects porous tile, natural stone, paving and grout from damage caused by water and salts. Treated indoor and outdoor surfaces become easier to clean, maintain and keep looking good for longer. WATER-REPELLA is an economical sealer for engineering concrete, terracotta tile, cast stone, paving, limestone, brick and grout.

WATER-REPELLA is suitable for a wide variety of applications, including building facades, floors, walls, swimming pool surrounds, patios, garages, kitchens and public and private entertaining areas.

WATER-REPELLA able to greatly reduce water uptake and minimise moss growth, freeze thaw spalling and efflorescence; non film-forming; able to work without changing the appearance of the surface – keeps the original look; suitable for indoor and outdoor use; able to breathe so there is no build-up of subsurface moisture, allowing it dry out, and very alkali resistant – won’t breakdown in contact with cement-based materials.
