Masonry Protection Cream eradicates water ingress and mould

  • 22 Oct 2014

Energy savings

Providing an end to penetrating damp from rain and producing energy savings of up to 29%, Stormdry can be applied by brush or roller and cures colourlessly to the original finish of masonry in 12 hours.

Stormdry offers substrate protection for up to 30 years after a single coat and is more deeply penetrating than traditional liquid applied water repellents, meaning its crack-bridging capability is greater.

The masonry cream can be applied to wet walls and continues to dry due to its ability to line the pores of brickwork and masonry as opposed to blocking them, enabling water vapour to escape whilst preventing further ingress.

Damp prevention and thermal efficiency

Proven to be the only damp proofing cream to prevent penetrating damp from rain and enhance the thermal efficiency of walls, Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream is classified under VAT Notice 708/6 as an energy saving measure that qualifies for a reduced rate of 5%.

Tests conducted on solid wall constructions by the University of Portsmouth showed that the treatment will provide energy savings of up to 29%, with the cream costing less to install, being quick to apply and causing minimal disruption to the consumer.

Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream reduces the opportunity for mould and moss to grow and is part of Safeguard Europe’s flood protection system due to its ability to deal with the issues of damp that can arise with cavity wall insulation.

The creams vapour permeability allows the wall to dry out whilst also preventing water from entering and damaging the insulation’s level of performance.
