Color enhancer for natural stone, plaster and terracotta
SIOX-5 RE40 is a water repellent protective coating and color enhancer based on sol-gel technology developed by the Group of Chemistry for Cultural Heritage at the University of Padua, Italy (Patent n. 0001370467   Synthesis of silica protective films by tin-catalized sol-gel process).

HOW IT WORKS

The product contains nanostructured silica gel. Once applied it saturates the pores with a layer of amorphous silica thin, colorless, transparent, compatible with the substrate, water resistant and breathable.
The functionalized component - hydrophobic- is arranged outwards and it prevents the absorption of water and substances by natural stone or artificial material (plasters, stucco,terracotta) . The high concentration is responsible of the wet effect and of the enhancement of the colors but the natural aspect of the material is preserved.
