Siloxa-Tek 8500
Category: Coatings - mineral surfaces

Siloxa-Tek 8500 is the most advanced, high performance, industrial strength water based concrete/masonry water repellent solution ever formulated designed to reduce water and moisture intrusion... Surpassing anything else on the market the Siloxa-Tek 8500 provides a hydrophobic barrier beneath the surface and seals out moisture while remaining highly vapor permeable and chemically bonding with the substrate. The treated surfaces will show no change in visual appearance from application and the surface that will not chip, flake, delaminate or breakdown with UV light exposure.

Typical Use:

Basement floors and foundation walls, Driveways, sidewalks and parking lots; Slabs, walls and concrete roof structures; Vertical and horizontal, interior and exterior, new and old concrete surfaces

Apparent use of Nanotechnology: unspecified nanoparticles
Reason for Inclusion:

"How small is a nanometer like the nanometer-sized particles in the GHOSTSHIELD formulas?... The manipulation of our nanoparticles and the way they are then structurally assembled results in the most technologically advanced and engineered formulations." (see link under Related Information field) "Approved by the Department of Transportation, protecting a wide variety of mineral substrates including architectural concrete, concrete block, splitface block, pavers, stucco, porous and dense brick, clay tile, exposed aggregate concrete, sandstone, and slate, our unique formula incorporates leading molecular nanotechnology; putting an end to water and moisture migration through any porous cementitious substrate."
