External Brick Waterproofing
Waterproofing Your Exterior Brick Walls Helps Solve any External Damp Issues
When your external walls are exposed to a water source such as rain, this water can enter your masonry, in some cases travelling laterally from your external walls to your internal walls meaning that your walls stay damp without getting the opportunity to dry out. This can be overcome by the application of a water-repellent cream to your brickwork.
Enhancing Water Resistance and Energy Performance
Titan Insulation use a deeply penetrating water-repellent cream for the protection of masonry.
It prevents rain penetration into masonry materials by lining their pores rather than blocking them. This allows the masonry to continue to breathe naturally.
Unlike waterproof paints or waterproof coatings, the waterproof cream retains the natural finish of the masonry so is particularly suited for application to brickwork or stonework.
Maintain the Natural Appearance of Your Walls with Breathable, Colourless Protection
Titan Insulation's masonry protection cream is applied to masonry in a single coat by means of brush, roller, or spray. Once applied, it penetrates deeply into the masonry before curing to form a colourless, breathable water repellent barrier.
Reduce Energy Bills by up to 29% - Keeps Walls Dry & Warm
By creating a deep water-repellent zone on the masonry surface, the water repellent cream ensures that the masonry remains dry throughout the year. This maximises its thermal resistance, as dry walls are better insulators than wet walls. Test work conducted by the University of Portsmouth suggests that by using a water repellent cream energy savings of up to 29% are possible.
Prevent Damp Caused by Insulation
Applying the cream to the outer leaf will increase the wall's water resistance, preventing any further water from being absorbed into the insulation whilst also letting any existing moisture evaporate away.
