Surface Treatment

WACKER offers different solutions for protecting the open-pore structure of concrete or screed floors against soiling. Silane-terminated SILRES® BS grades and PRIMIS® siliconized, acrylic-based hybrid dispersions can be used as film-forming anti-stain treatments.

SILRES® BS grades based on silicone-fluorine technology offer invisible protection while pure silicone SILRES® grades add color enhancement to the protective benefits.

On wall plasters, PRIMIS® dispersions can be used as protective coating and finish in specialty applications such as Venetian plaster. With this portfolio, it is possible to realize very effective anti-stain protection for almost any mineral surface from concrete to natural stone.

Impregnating agents based on SILRES® BS 6920 are easily applied by rolling or wiping.

These SILRES® BS grades cure on contact with moisture. Their chemical structure has been optimized to achieve low viscosity. As a result, the binder penetrates deep into the pores of a cement-bound floor, filling the pores completely and forming a thin, glossy film on the surface. After the binder has cured, the pores are impermeable to everyday substances containing water or oil. The new binder therefore offers highly effective stain protection. Substances can be removed without lasting stains even if left on the surface for a prolonged time.
