Stone Waterproofing
and Protection Coatings

Below you will be able to view videos and photographs about our stone waterproofing and protection coatings

Above - This remarkable picture shows oil on a Stone Water-Guard treated surface 48 hours after it has been dropped on the surface. You can see quite clearly that the oil droplets remain proud of the surface and have not penetrated the Stone Water-Guard treated surfaces at all. This oil repellent nature is ideal for stone surfaces where motor oil spillages occur or where bund wall protective coatings are required.

Above - This is a picture showing the oil resistant Stone Water-Guard coating on the left hand stone, compared with the right stone which is untreated. See Video Oil repelling Coating 1 below.

Above - This is a picture showing the remarkable crack-bridging capability of Stone Water-Guard. These two stones are held together with a cable tie and have no other bonding applied.

Above - This is a close-up picture of water sitting on top of the surface of a yellow paver, which has been treated with Stone Water-Guard. This water repellence can be easily applied to any stone or concrete surface with an application of Stone Water-Guard.

Video Oil Repelling Coating 1

This video show the remarkable ability of Stone Water-Guard to resist the passage of oil through its coating when it has been applied correctly. The stone on the left has been treated with Stone Water-Guard and the other stone is untreated. You can quite clearly see the oil penetration in the untreated surface, whilst the treated surface on the left resists any oil penetration. This oil repellent nature is ideal for stone surfaces where motor oil spillages occur or where bund wall protective coating are required.

Video Slab 1 half treated

The lower half of this yellow paving slab has been treated with a coating of Stone Water-Guard. As water is poured over the upper half of the slab, you can see how it soaks into the upper surface but is totally repelled by the coating on the lower half of the slab. This water repellence is achieved easily and effectively with a coating of Stone Water-Guard and is as effective on any stone or concrete surface.

Video Slab 2 half treated

The upper half of this grey paving slab has been treated with a coating of Stone Water-Guard. As water is poured over the upper half of the slab, you can see how it is completely repelled by the coating. As it runs down the slab it then immediately soaks into the lower half of the slab. This water repellence is achieved easily and effectively with a coating of Stone Water-Guard and is effective on any stone or concrete surface.

Video Wall 1, 2 and 3

This series of three videos show how easy it is to apply Stone Water-Guard to a potentially wet limestone wall and easily waterproof it in twenty four hours. The first video shows what happens to the limestone wall and the pointing when a hosepipe is played over it representing heavy rain. The wall becomes totally wet as it absorbs water though the pointing and into the limestone.

The second video clearly shows how easy it is to spray Stone Ware-Guard onto the limestone surface and the pointing. The wall is only treated up to a height of two metres and the coating allowed to dry and cure for twenty four hours.

The third video shows what happens when we play the hose pipe over the surface again after treatment. The upper part of the wall is still becoming darker and wetter as water is absorbed into the surface while the lower half is now completely water repellent and remains completely dry and resists all water penetration. This water resistance can be easily achieved easily and effectively on any stone or concrete surface with a coating of Stone Water-Guard.

Video Water repelling gap 1

This remarkable video shows the crack-bridging capability of Stone Water-Guard after is has been applied correctly. These two stone have both been treated with Stone Water-Guard and are held together by a cable tie. You can see the crack between the stones and see how they can be moved against each other whilst repelling the water and preventing it from entering the crack. It is only when the stones are pulled apart and the crack opens up to about 4mm, that the water is then able to drop down through the enlarged crack. This crack-bridging capability can be achieved on any stone or concrete surface with a coating of Stone Water-Guard.
