    USE & PROPERTIES

    Go top
    -          water, hydrophobic impregnant based on oxosilanes
    -          for protection against water action of mineral, porous construction substrates – stone elements (e.g. sandstone),  face bricks (ceramic and silicate), aerated concrete, concrete, setts, cement slabs
    -          can be used for hydrophobization of mineral renders used in external thermal insulation
    -          limits the substrate absorptiveness – protects against rainwater and structural penetration of harmful chemicals diluted in water  
    -          improves resistance of impregnated surface to soiling, efflorescence and biological corrosion
    -          resistant to alkalis – can be used for protection of fresh renovation plasters, new joints and face walls after cavities re - profiling.
    -          durable – resistant to UV rays action
    -          solvent – free – safe for impregnated substrate, does not cause substrate discoloration
    -          characterized by neutral odour – can be used indoors
    -          does not deteriorate the properties of the protected materials in terms of gas and water vapor diffusion, the pores remain open

    RANGE OF USE

    Go top
    -          impregnation of face walls made of brick or stone, after previous conservatory actions and filling cavities in joints and wall elements with the use of Atlas Golden Age system mortars
    -          protection against water of façades coated with renovation finishing coats, including renovation plasters Atlas Golden Age
    -          external wall insulation, executed with the use of polystyrene boards or mineral wool panels, where the finishing coat is formed of mineral renders
    -          hydrophobization of facings and stone tiles, installed on walls as well as on floors
    -          hydrophobization of stone sculptures and architectonic decors subject to direct atmospheric factors action
    -          protection against water action of mouldings made of moulding mortars Atlas Golden Age and installed onto façades
    -          hydrophobization of existing mineral paint coats
    -          impregnation of contemporary and heritage ceramic roofing tiles
    -          for indoor and outdoor use

     

    SUBSTRATE PREPARATION

    Go top
    The method of substrate cleaning must be individually adjusted for each object, depending on the strength and condition of the substrate material and its historic value. Before impregnation, the substrate must be cleaned from dust, dirt, patina, efflorescence, loose and crumbling pieces and residues of grease, oils and wax. Substrate should by dry, it can be also slightly wet. In case of biological contamination clean the surface with BIOCIDAL PREPARATION PB. It is recommended to protect against possible soiling all surfaces neighboring the impregnated substrate – woodwork, glass, plants, etc. Note! Hydrophobization should not be executed on surfaces of high salinity level as it may lead to intensification of construction salts crystallization process and substrate material deterioration .

    APPLICATION

    Go top
    ATLAS GOLDEN AGE WH is manufactured as a ready to use product. It must not be combined with other materials, diluted or thickened. The preparation is applied by painting, with a soft brush, onto larger surfaces it can be applied by spraying with nozzle assuring oblate liquid stream. In both cases one should provide plentiful and even preparation spreading onto whole surface until full substrate saturation. In proper application, the preparation coming down the surface forms damp patches up to 50 cm long. Repeat the action several times, depending on properties and porosity of the substrate being protected, using the wet on wet method. During work and directly after the freshly impregnated surfaces should be protected against direct sunshine and precipitation (min. 5 hours).
