Get the weathered-effect with new Sika Liquid Weather
Sika Liquid Weather
Sika has developed a water-based acrylin resin, Sika Liquid Weather.
Developed to give new masonry an instant ‘weathered-in’ look to better match existing areas, it provides a seamless match between old and new surfaces.
It is suitable for use on all types of external surface, including brick, rough stone, ashlar, mortar, concrete, roof tiles, pantiles, tyrolean render, pebbledash, paving slabs and blocks and garden ornaments, as well as internal stone surfaces.
Sika Liquid Weather is available in a bottle or spray and uses micro-fined soot to give an instant and permanent aged look.
It is suitable for use on older buildings which have recently undergone repair work.
Sika Liquid Weather will ensure a continuous aged effect is achieved.
The solution can be simply diluted to achieve the shade required.
