RC Impreg 400® is a ready-to-use, colorless and water-based water repellent for porous substrates (concrete, bricks, cement plaster, natural stone, tiles, etc.). The RC Impreg 400® is based on a blend of different polymers of increasing molecular weight offering an optimal and lasting water-repellent effect. RC Impreg 400® is solvent-free, flammable, odorless and can be applied to wet, dry or alkaline substrates, even fresh joints.
RC Impreg 400® is a micro-emulsion penetrating easily porous substrates and containing alkoxylated oligomers, it can also be used on very alkaline materials such as fresh joints, plaster, fresh concrete … The products penetrate very well and resist UV from the sun.
- Protects against heavy rain and inclement weather
- Reduces water absorption
- Does not form a film and does not change the appearance of the substrate
- Allows the substrate to breathe (permeable to water vapor)
- Slows mold formation
- Reduces frost damage
- Limits the formation of efflorescence
- Prevents premature spots
- Solvent-free, non-toxic, colorless, flammable
- Excellent aging, does not turn yellow
- Can be applied on wet or dry substrates (also fresh joints)
- Waterproofing according to the Karsten tube test (100% after the accelerated aging test)
The substrate surface must be clean and free of dust and mold.
Optionally treat the substrate with fungicides before applying RC-Impreg 400®.
Old cracks, bad joints must be repaired before application and the use of stone hardener may be necessary.
In this case, it is recommended to wait 3 weeks before using the RC-Impreg 400®.
Application The treatment must prefer to be carried out by wetting the substrate at low pressure, with a roller or brush and without creating steam or spraying the product. The application should be made from bottom to top with horizontal movements. It is convenient and appropriate to proceed twice wet on wet. Use of a constant pressure electric pump is recommended.
