SILRES® BS 1703 SQ
SILRES® BS 1703 SQ is intended primarily for in-plant water-repellent treatment of fiber-reinforced cement-products, like e.g. fiber-cement board. It significantly reduces the capillary water absorption of the construction materials after setting and reaching equilibrium moisture.
SILRES® BS 1703 SQ is added undiluted into the mixer, usually at dosage levels ranging from 0.1 to 0.3 % by weight based on the overall solids level. For the unimpaired product performance proper mixing into the cement-based slurry is required.
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.
