Coating and Water Repellents
- Terra Coat (glaze replacement for terra cotta and brick)
- Acrylic Floor Sealer
- MasonRE Potassium Silicate Coatings (Paints)
- Water Repellents
Once we have completed a new construction or restoration job we can seal the stone to give it a protective and breathable coat while leaving the stone with a natural appearance.
Anti-graffiti coatings can be invisible to the naked eye making them ideal for preserving historic buildings. There are two categories of anti-graffiti coatings. The first, sacrificial coatings, are applied to a surface and then removed when graffiti is applied. The surface underneath will be left clean and a new sacrificial coating can be applied. The other type of coating are permanent coatings that prevent graffiti from adhering to a surface in the first place.
Newer coatings are made of charged polymeric materials that form a gel on the surface of the building or substrate. Some of the most important characteristics of anti-graffiti coatings are:
- Sufficient adherence without damage to historical buildings
- Hydrophobicity (water-repellance)
- Environmentally friendly composition and processing
- Resistance to UV aging and weathering
- Good Cleaning Efficiency
