Dry-Treat offers several sealers formulated to minimise the growth of efflorescence on various materials.
A condition caused by water moving through the substrate of a material collecting and carrying minerals and salts, efflorescence happens when the water reaches the surface of the material and evaporates, leaving the minerals and salts behind.
Efflorescence causes the formation of white marks on the material’s surface that can be difficult to remove.
Dry-Treat’s STAIN-PROOF Original is a super impregnating sealer consisting of specially engineered molecules that form strong chemical bonds within the pores of the material. STAIN-PROOF usually takes 3-5 weeks to bond to the material, during which time substances such as salts present in the material will be pushed to the surface by the sealant. This efflorescence can be removed by simply brushing away the salts immediately.
Dry-Treat's STAIN-PROOF sealer offers superior penetration to protect the material from any new deposits of salts reaching the surface.
