Repelicone K provides outstanding early water repellency and protection from weathering to natural stones, clays, terracotta, bricks, sandstone, limestone, aerated concrete, insulating materials, gypsum and gypsum-based fiber boards.
Repelicone K is also suitable to be applied immediately on manufactured low-fired clay products such as roof tiles, floor tiles, and flower pots.
20 litre plastic pails and 200 litre plastic drums.
0.1 - 0.4 litre per m² depends on the porosity of the substrate.
Store under cover at a minimum ambient temperature of 5°C.
Approximately 12 months if stored in sealed drums and containers in proper conditions.
Surface must be clean, sound and free from oil, grease, curing compound, or any contamination. Any contaminants should be removed by light grit blasting. Water jet is then used as the end step of substrate cleaning.
Avoid the use of acidic or alkaline chemical detergents and cationic surfactants. If detergents are used for cleaning, it is necessary to rinse well the cleaned surface by water in order to remove any detergent residue.
It is recommended to apply two consecutive coats of Repelicone K at the stated rate of application with a maximum recoat time of 10 minutes, or one flood coat. Impregnation can be carried out using airless spray machine, brush, or roller.

Repelicone K should not be applied when rain is forecasted within 24 hours. Wait at least 24 hours after rain or water cleaning.
Be sure that impregnated surfaces by Repelicone K are not exposed to water and rain for at least 8 hours after application. Allow the treated surface to dry for at least 24 hours to develop maximum water repellency.
DO NOT USE DETERGENTS for cleaning impregnated surfaces by Repelicone K, washing occurs only by water.
Tools and equipment can be cleaned with water when wet.
The water repellent properties fully develop in approximately 24 hours @ 25°C.
Care should be taken during use and storage to avoid contact with skin, eyes and mouth. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection.
