PCT 56 WATER REPELLENT TECHNOLOGY
Hydrophobic Chemical Treatment for Cement Surfaces and Bricks
PCT 56 WATER REPELLENT TECHNOLOGY is a pink hydrophobic penetrating chemical procedure for dry cementitious substrates.
PCT 56 Water Repellent Technology is a pink transparent liquid suitable for treatment of dry cementitious substrates to prevent the ingress of water or moisture that lead to paint failures.
The product has zero surface tension and when applied to a surface it will penetrate and in the presence of atmospheric carbons and oxygen an insoluble hydrophobic inorganic crystalline structure is formed inside the capillaries by chemical reaction.
During the chemical reaction that takes place the product changes from organic to inorganic state.
It will remain in the substrate for the life of the substrate.
Capillary water or moisture ingress is restricted in positive and negative manner by the hydrophobic inorganic barrier.
A track record of 24 years since first formulation.
Permanent and durable
Ready to use, no thinning required
Water based, contains no toxic solvents
Impermeable to water or moisture
A chemical treatment, not a paint
Acid and alkali resistant
Will not affect the natural appearance of the substrate
Inorganic crystal forming
Dry plaster surfaces
Cement roof tiles
COLOUR Pink transparent
SOLID CONTENT 38% by mass
SPECIFIC GRAVITY 0.98
VISCOSITY 15 Seconds Ford Cup
SOLVENT Potable water
SPREADING RATE 4 – 6 m² per litre depending on substrate porosity
PH 10 – 12
WATER INGRESS Wacker Academy Water Ingress Test Method
Zero head loss after 24 hours.
TEMPERATURE Softens at 1300°C
Minimum -3°C application
CURING TIME 24 hours at 25°c and 30% relative humidity.
LIFE EXPECTANCY Life of the substrate
SHELF LIFE 6 Months
POT LIFE Replace lid after use
MIXING Ready to use, do not thin or reduce.
SURFACE MOISTURE Must be totally dry .
Ensure that the surface is dry and free of dust or any foreign debris including any loose and flaking paint.
Any substrate moisture will disturb the balanced product formulation and prevent the chemical reaction.
The surface must be 100% dry up to a depth of +- 1cm.
Do a test on an inconspicuous area and allow to cure for 24 hours to confirm that the substrate is porous. Pour water onto this area and ensure that the repellent action is visible.
Protect non-ferrous metal and glazing from overspray or spillage.
Apply by household trigger action spray for small areas and Agri Backpack for large areas.
Ensure that the substrate is saturated.
Always commence application from top to bottom in continuous movement.
Avoid any spillages, if spillages occur, remove immediately with a moist cloth.
Avoid damming on the surface, remove any excess liquid immediately. Curing on the surface will leave a white crystalline residue which is extremely difficult to remove. Paint adhesion will be reduced and may lead to failure.
Treated surfaces must cure for 24 hours before painting, any other surface that will be exposed to water for prolonged periods or submerged in water must cure for at least seven days.
CLEANING OF EQUIPMENT
Use potable water.
