WATER REPELLENT TREATMENT FOR COTTO
 
SOLGEL TC is a water repellent treatment for cotto based on sol-gel technology.
 

HOW IT WORKS

 

The product contains nanostructured and functionalized silica ideal for the treatment of terracotta. Once applied it forms a layer of amorphous silica thin, colorless, transparent,  water resistant able to cover the pores while allowing natural transpiration. It soaks the material providing a wet effect while maintaining the natural aspect of the surface. The functionalized component - hydrophobic- is arranged outwards and it prevents the absorption of water and dirt and by the material.
