Natural stone and artificial stone are a popular choice of material due to their unique appearance and the way they feel. But these kinds of stone are particularly prone to staining and weathering. If they remain untreated, the stone absorbs water, oil and other substances very quickly. This causes irreversible stains or other damage. A highly effective and long-lasting way to prevent such damage is to treat surfaces with SILRES® BS, thus preserving the beauty of natural and artificial stone.
Highly Permeable to Water Vapor and Extremely Long-Lasting
SILRES® BS penetrates the pores by means of capillary action and is deposited on the pore walls. These siliconized pores prevent any further capillary effect – without impairing essential water-vapor permeability. What is more, silicone resin coatings last a very long time when some of the coating remains on the surface. This is because these coatings form a long-lasting covalent bond with the substrate and therefore cannot be easily washed off by rain or otherwise removed. At the same time, stains and graffiti are easy to remove.
