Ecologic™ Rainsil – A Water Repellent Coating for Masonry:
A Siloxane additive to the Ecologic™ Brand Colorwash Stain and Potassium Silicate Paint to make a coating over masonry, concrete, stucco/plaster have water repellent properties. Additionally, Rainsil is vapor permeable and reduces/inhibits the absorption of water from wind-driven rain.
When/where to use water repellent coating:
Ecologic™ Rainsil is used mainly as an additive to the final coat of Silicate Dispersion Paints and Stains on Masonry surfaces. This additive adds an additional level of protection against wind-driven rain and other excess surface water. Ecologic™ Rainsil is for any porous masonry such as Brick, Block, Stone, Terracotta, Cast Stone, Concrete, Stucco, Plaster, etc.
Milky white while a liquid, dries clear (test before major usage on experimental applications).
200-300sq. ft. depending on the absorption rate of substrate
Stir well before using. Do not apply at working temperatures (surface + air) below 40°F or above 110°F. Apply by brush, roller, or airless sprayer after proper surface preparation. Use as the final coat and apply continuously wet-in-wet, especially when using stronger tinted colors. Ideally, Rainsil should be sprayed.
