An important innovation successfully carried out by Dow Corning Australia in partnership with Dry-Treat Australia, (an industry leader in the business of waterproofing) is the creation of the high performance alkyl silane water repellent. This is a water repellent formulation, which aids in preventing deterioration of walls due to contact with the salt in sea water.
Some of the landmark properties which have benefited significantly from the application of alkyl silane water repellent are the Sydney Opera House and Singapore’s Changi Airport. Dow Corning Australia also supplies a variety of silanes and siliconates in various formulations, as building sealing solutions.
