Safeguard Raincheck LS limestone liquid waterproofer

New Safeguard waterproofer offers protection for limestone

  • 19 Jul 2016

Safeguard Europe’s Raincheck LS limestone liquid waterproofer has been developed to protect the thermal resistance of limestone stonework by preventing rainwater ingress.

Designed especially for the waterproofing of limestone, Raincheck LS can increase the life expectancy of limestone products by reducing fissuring and spalling, which may be caused by freeze-thaw action.

The waterproofer provides water repellence and breathability. The colourless solution is based on UV-resistant silane-siloxane based resins, which encourage the material to bond to the carbonates within the limestone.

Raincheck LS can be applied by brush or roller; a single coat cures within 12 hours of application and will proceed to protect the substrate for up to 20 years. It can be successfully applied to wet limestone, which will continue to dry out by allowing water vapour to escape whilst preventing water ingress.

The product is available from Safeguard Europe in 25 litre drums.
