Breathable Protection For Up To 25 Years
No Hydro Masonry Protection Cream is formed by carefully selected silanes and siloxanes that line the masonry pores to form a water-repellent silicone matrix. As it works by lining the pores rather than blocking them the masonry is allowed to breathe and does not suffer from increased frost damage (spalling). No Hydro Cream is effectively protected from the sun and other forms of UV light due to its unique formulation and deep penetration, resulting in a 20 – 30 year life span.
No Hydro Deeply Penetrating Cream can penetrate more deeply into masonry than other liquid-applied masonry water repellents. This, as well as enhancing longevity, enhances the No Hydro Water Repellent Cream crack-bridging capability and can provide water-repellency beyond the depth of small cracks.
It should also be mentioned to receive the best protection, larger gaps will need to be filled during the treatment. Mortar lines may need to be repointed with a sand/cement or sand/lime mix.
Stone, Brick and Concrete Protection
No Hydro Masonry Protection Cream is effective when used on masonry substrates that contain a large proportion of sand (SiO2) – e.g. brick, mortar, sandstone, granite, etc…
This is because the active ingredients in our cream form an extremely strong covalent bond with silicon dioxide (SiO2). No Hydro will also reduce heat loss therefore is energy efficient.
Dampness caused by weather damaged brick work on chimneys is a typical issue that many people deal with unsuccessfully due to incorrect diagnosis of the source and/or treatment. No Hydro Masonry Protection Cream can be used as reliable protection with a long life expectancy. With many benefits using No Hydro Protective Cream for the application will give you up to 25 years of protection against bad weather protecting properties chimneys porous bricks and mortar preventing water ingress, penetrating damp, water absorption and frost damage.
It should be mentioned that it might also be beneficial to inject a No Hydro Damp Proof Cream at the lowest accessible point in the chimney stack to mitigate moisture tracking down this route.
No Hydro provides effectiveness on concrete, mortar, brick, and sandstone. No Hydro cream based formulation is resistant to light rain after just 12 hours and heavy rain after 24 hours. As the product is designed to go deep into masonry, it may take up to two months for a visible “beading effect” to appear after rainfall on the wall although you will notice resistants after just 12 hours.
Rain penetration into masonry can occur in buildings of all ages. It penetrates right through the wall and is visible as a damp patch often causing discolouration and peeling/flaking of paintwork or wallpaper, this is often misdiagnosed as rising damp however, rainwater penetration can be damaging to a property, even if it does not penetrate all the way through a wall e.g moss growth, increased heat loss, and frost damage can be caused by rain penetration into masonry.
