Climatological phenomena in the Netherlands often result in damage to the facades of houses and other buildings. A hydrophobic agent can protect them from moist.
A hydrophobic agent makes stone facades water repelling by adding a waterproof transparent layer. Turning a wooden structure hydrophobic can also be referred to as impregnating that structure.
Moist is the biggest enemy
Moist that infiltrates into the facade is the biggest enemy of the structure. It increases the growth of fungi, algae, and moss, and increases frost damage. Furthermore, it might create ugly white stains and cracks on the facade due to free lime and salt.
A humid facade might also result in unhealthy living conditions inside houses and other buildings, such as schools and offices. It is harder to heat affected buildings, therefore increasing energy costs.
Protecting a facade with a hydrophobic agent
The use of a hydrophobic agent to protect facades against moist is crucial. Borèl can help by supplying Moxilon 200 nano Hydro / Colour. Moxilon 200 nano Hydro / Colour is an innovative, environmentally friendly, hydrophobic agent. We offer a 20-year warranty, ensuring that your facade stays dry for a long time.
Moxilon 200 nano Hydro / Colour increases the lifespan of your facade and improves its appearance, by making sure that there are no fungi, algae, moss or white salt stains. Moxilon 200 nano Hydro / Colour eases the process of cleaning dirt from the facade and also reinforces the cementitious joints.
The bettering of living conditions might be, especially for asthma patients, the biggest benefit of using a hydrophobic agent.
Using a hydrophobic agent improves insulation
A hydrophobic agent is not only water-repellent, but it also improves the insulation of a building. Moreover, it increases the building’s frost and thaw endurance.
An important benefit of using a hydrophobic agent is that energy costs decrease because the building is better insulated.
Using the right hydrophobic agent
The outcome of using a hydrophobic agent depends on the quality of the agent, the amount used, and the place where the agent is applied.
We use Moxilon 200 nano hydro as a hydrophobic agent. Moxilon 200 nano Hydro / Colour is a nano lithium-silicate-based fluid that penetrates the concrete more deeply and evenly than similar potassium- and sodium-based products.
