No room for water or moisture with our water repellents
Water simply rolls off
Water is fundamental to our life. But for buildings, water can present a real challenge. Repeated exposure to freezing cold weather and the pollutants and dirt associated with water can cause considerable damage. Our water repellents provide effective protection against these adverse effects.
Water repellents are used to provide mortar and rendering systems with durable protection against water and moisture.
Our modern water repellents minimize the infiltration of water and dissolved pollutants, while maintaining the water
vapor permeability at the same time.
Important requirements for water repellents:
High degree of alkaline stability
Permeability to gas and water vapor
Low surface tension
No sticky surfaces
Deep penetration depth
Higher hygiene standards and reduced penetration of pollutants
Modern water repellents offer effective surface protection and ensure a lasting
Under the brand name TEGOSIVIN® we offer highperformance water repellents for the manufacture of long-life systems. A heavy reduction in water absorption as well as excellent beading properties ensure reduced penetration of pollutants and therefore reduced cleaning requirements. Improved freeze/thaw resistance minimizes weather-related damage, which in turn has a positive impact on restoration costs and durability.
