SILRES® BS 1360 can be added in undiluted form to aqueous masonry protection agents during or after their production. The addition of 1 wt.% (for example to silicone resin emulsion paints) to 3 wt.% (for example to silicate emulsion paints) is recommended.

SILRES® BS 1360 is used in undiluted form as a hydrophobizing additive for aqueous masonry paints to increase water repellency, water resistance and water-vapor permeability as well as to enhance processability and anti-blocking properties.

Suitable for:

  • silicone resin emulsion paints and silicone resin plasters
  • silicate emulsion paints and plasters
  • highly-filled emulsion-based coatings
  • emulsion-modified whitewash
  • stoppers

In particular, silicate emulsion paints and plasters modified with this additive are characterized by extremely long-lasting and reliable water repellency. The hydrophobizing action is unaffected by long storage of the liquid paint system.


The product should be stirred well before use. The 'Best use before end' date of each batch is shown on the product label. Storage beyond the date specified on the label does not necessarily mean that the product is no longer usable. In this case however, the properties required for the intended use must be checked for quality assurance reasons.
