Protectosil® for building facades
Optimized Functionality and REPRESENTATIVE APPEARANCE for Private and public buildings
Protectosil® products are clear, breathable, and penetrating. They are silane-based and suitable for above-grade brick masonry, concrete masonry and concrete.
Depending on the kind of surface protection desired and the preferred application method, Evonik offers suitable Protectosil® products for various needs.
The Nassau Hall of the Princeton University, a beautiful sandstone building constructed in 1756, was treated with Protectosil® CHEM-TRETE® 40 VOC.
Protectosil® has been protecting buildings all over the world for over 30 years, including also the Louvre in Paris, France, one of the world's most popular museums. The inner courtyard and the sandstone benches are protected with Protectosil ANTIGRAFFITI® allowing easy removal of undesired graffiti.
Cleaning the windows takes several days. Accordingly, taping the windows and window
frames prior to applying a surface protection agent on the facade would have cost
considerable time and money. Because Protectosil® CHEM-TRETE® BSM 400 does not leave any residue on glass or metal, operators decided in favor of treating the building efficiently with Protectosil®.
WE WILL SHOW YOU IN THE VIDEO HOW FACADES ARE OPTIMALLY PROTECTED AGAINST ENVIRONMENTAL AND WEATHERING INFLUENCES LIKE RAIN, SNOW, GRIME, OIL , EXHAUST GASES AND MICROORGANISMS.
Protectosil® products will not yellow, peel or fade, and they keep the building façade looking natural. By reducing the amount of water entering the substrate, Protectosil® products discourage the entry of water carrying contaminants such as salts and dirt, reducing deterioration caused by efflorescence, mildew, scaling, acid rain and spalling.
