PROTECTOSIL® IMPROVES THE MECHANICAL PROPERTIES AND MAINTAINS FUNCTIONALITY AND BEAUTY OF STONES
Evonik's Protectosil® products maintain uniqueness, functionality and beauty of modern and historical buildings.
Protectosil® SH is used to deposit silicic acid formed as a result of complete hydrolysis. The resulting silicic acid bonds well to many mineral, inorganic substrates, such as natural, brick or terracotta stones. The deposition of a thin SiO2 layer improves chemical and thermal stability as well as the mechanical properties.
In the case of porous mineral substrates Protectosil® SH is used for stone consolidation. Depending on the kind of natural stone Protectosil® SH is applied in specifically developed formulations as a silica source.

The eco-friendly Protectosil® SH 100 is qualified for the consolidation of mineral construction materials, brick work and terracotta. The product improves thermal and chemical stability as well as the mechanical properties of treated substrates.
Protectosil® WS 808 is virtually solvent-free and especially suited as water repellent for low-fired clay products (e.g. roofing tiles, common brick, floor tiles, terracotta) as well as for various natural stones, sandstones and gypsum.)
