Water Repellents

TK-290 TRI-SILOXANE is a solvent based, low viscosity oligomeric organosiloxane, one-component, deep penetrating, invisible, non-darkening water repellent for concrete and masonry. The siloxane groups are chemically bonded, not just physically bonded like other surface penetrating sealers, to the concrete. It eliminates the ever present moisture that had previously engulfed the cementitious substrate, thus eliminating spalling, freeze/thaw damage, and rebar corrosion. It penetrates up to 1/4 inch and becomes a permanent part of the substrate not allowing water to enter, but allows moisture vapor to pass out of the substrate.

oligomeric organosiloxane


Explanation:
The very first organic chem patent I ever translated from French, (mumble) years ago, was on a related compound: diorganopolysiloxane.

Like your first lover's name, it's something one doesn't (easily) forget!

Cheers,
