Safeguard augments Stormdry with masonry protection stable

  • 26 Jul 2018

Safeguard Europe has augmented its market-leading Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream by releasing three extra, aligned products, delivering solutions ranging from anti-graffiti coating to crack bridging and mortar repair.

The new range from the UK’s leading specialist in damp and waterproofing, and masonry repair solutions now includes Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream, Stormdry XR Mortar, Stormdry AG Coat and Stormdry CB Coat.

Stormdry CB Coat (pictured above) is a water-resistant coating which bridges small cracks in walls, creating a waterproof barrier against rain. As it is semi-breathable, it can be used as a top coat for the company’s market-leading Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream when fine cracking occur, or in areas victim to extreme weather.

Its high density initially results in a very slight visual ‘satin’ change to the surface that fades with time.

Stormdry AG Coat anti-graffiti protection is a permanent water-resistant coating that allows for simple removal of aerosol paint, ‘permanent’ markers and fly posts.

Applicable over walls that are already decorated, use of Stormdry AG leads to a glossy surface that prevents paints adhering to the substrate and results in them being easy to clean.

The coating is so effective that, in the case of fly posters, they will ‘self-detach’ after rainfall.

When used with Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream, it can also comprise part of a ‘water exclusion’ flood mitigation specification up to 0.6m above ground level.

By applying Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream to masonry first, then Stormdry AG, an even better bond to the substrate is created,  enhancing the former’s already robust water repellent properties.

The final new introduction is Stormdry XR Mortar. It is a polymer-modified mortar than can be used to seal cracks or repair pointing to prevent water ingress, and lower the chances of further damage.

The perfect wall preparation prior to the application of Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream and able to fill cracks between one and 15mm, it is directly applied to damaged areas using a cartridge gun and cures in approximately two hours.

The foundation of the range is Safeguard’s best-selling Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream. BBA approved, Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream is a breathable remedial masonry water-repellent barrier for use on brick, mortar, sandstone and concrete.

It stops both rain penetration and boosts the thermal resistance of walls, as masonry insulates more effectively when dry: bricks have twice the thermal resistance when they are dry than wet.

It can even be applied to wet walls which will, because of its breathable properties, dry out from the inside.

Unlike other rain penetration and damp-proofing treatments, Stormdry lines the pores of the masonry so that water can escape as vapour but cannot enter in liquid form.

This ‘breathability’ allows Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream to effectively answer to the damp issues encountered in cavity wall insulation, as the wall can dry out while being protection from any further water penetration that will affect the insulation’s performance.
