Because the tower is listed as a historic monument, it was imperative the sealer chosen would have no visual impact on the building’s original brickwork and York Stone. STAIN-PROOF Premium Impregnating Sealer, formerly known as STAIN-PROOF Original™, and STAIN-PROOF 40SK Consolidator & Water Repellent, previously, DRY-TREAT 40SK™ were able to fulfil the exceptional standards and detailed list of requirements of this particular project.
- In this type of exposed marine environment, a breathable sealer was required that would provide maximum protection against salt efflorescence coming up from underneath the brick while still letting moisture from underneath to evaporate freely.
- The tower is a grade 1 listed building and an historic monument, making it imperative the sealer would not have any visual impact on the tower.
- The tower had developed a number of leaks through the roof.
- The speed of the application and the lifespan of the sealer were important to ensure minimal interference with the (future) plans of the home owner.
- The required sealer would also have to:
- Prevent staining
- Prevent chloride salt ingress
- Facilitate the cleaning process
- Not break down under a rigid cleaning regime
THE STAIN-PROOF® SOLUTION:
STAIN-PROOF’s world leading invisible impregnators Premium Impregnating Sealer and 40SK Consolidator & Water Repellent offered a complete solution for sealing this historic residence.
The chemistry of both sealers is unique. Specially engineered molecules in Premium Impregnating Sealer are thousands of times smaller than other sealers. This allows them to penetrate much deeper into the pores of the material where they bond permanently by chemical reaction. A sufficiently deep, permanent water and oil-repellent barrier is created, which is able to effectively protect against staining and even structural damage caused by water ingress, and which stands up to highly alkaline cleaning chemicals and commercial cleaning techniques such as high pressure hosing. Premium Impregnating Sealer does not affect the look or breathe-ability of the surface because it only works from inside the material.
40SK Consolidator & Water Repellent is suitable for a wide variety of applications. Most importantly, the sealer is able to consolidate loose and friable surfaces, for example sandstone, without trapping moisture in the stone which can lead to unsightly spalling. Also, 40SK Consolidator & Water Repellent is an exceptional chloride ion salt screen, which is ideal for a marine area such as the Essex Coast.
The tower was sealed with two coats of 40SK Consolidator & Water Repellent and Premium Impregnating Sealer by Accredited STAIN-PROOF Application Company Really Safe Flooring. The extended lifespan of both sealers will not cause future interference because, unlike many other impregnators, resealing every couple of years is not required. The surfaces are able to be maintained using, at most, only light scrubbing and mild nontoxic detergents, which perfectly suited the requirements of the client. Because of STAIN-PROOF’s unique breathability treatment, the clients have reported their home feels significantly dryer. Both 40SK Consolidator & Water Repellent and Premium Impregnating Sealer come with a 15 year performance warranty as they were applied by a STAIN-PROOF Accredited Applicator.
