With no end to the barrage of bad weather in sight, how can you protect your home from the ravages of the rain?
REPELS RAIN WATER
DryWall Thermotek is a water-repellent cream, which penetrates deeply into masonry. It’s based on carefully selected silanes and siloxanes which line the pores of the masonry to form a water-repellent silicone matrix.
Its effectiveness is partly due to the formulation of the cream; by lining the pores of the masonry rather than blocking them, the masonry is allowed to breathe and doesn’t suffer from increased frost damage (or spalling as it’s often referred to). Unlike waterproof paints or waterproof coatings, DryWall Thermotek is colourless and retains the natural finish of the masonry so is particularly suited for application to brick or stonework.
Due to its unique formulation and deep penetration, DryWall Thermotek is resistant to UV light and other forms of degradation, resulting in a life expectancy of 20-30 years.
POWERFUL FLOOD PROTECTION
DryWall Thermotek can be used to increase the flood resistance of masonry as part of a flood resilience system. When used in conjunction with a cavity drain flood protection system, DryWall Thermotek will actually reduce the amount of flood water that is able to pass through the masonry, thereby reducing the risk of floodwater overwhelming the pumping system.
When walls get wet through rain penetration, they become less effective at keeping heat in, and as the climate is getting wetter in the UK, this is becoming a big problem. Thermal insulation is therefore an added benefit of DryWall Thermotek and energy savings of up to 29% can be made with a single coat application of DryWall Thermotek
