USES

Westox Water Repellent penetrates and chemically reacts with all cementitious surfaces,
protecting them against, spalling and re-bar corrosion by locking out water and harmful
waterborne contaminants. Westox Water Repellent will not discolour or otherwise alter the
appearance of concrete and masonry surfaces.

FEATURES

Maximum water repellency

NOTE

Coverage rates are intended as a guideline only. The texture and absorption characteristics of
the surface will determine the actual coverage rate.

LIMITATIONS

Application should not proceed during inclement weather.
Westox Water Repellent will react with airborne water vapour.
Do not leave lid off container when not in use.
Not recommended for below grade waterproofing or application where water pressure is from
interior of wall.
Westox Water Repellent will not prevent penetration through unsound or cracked substrates.
If Water Repellent is applied on or near buildings containing foodstuff, they should be removed
prior to application and until material has fully dispersed.
To prevent damage to nearby shrubbery and landscaping, cover or protect with a drop sheet.

PREPARATION

Surface cleanliness is critical to final appearance of substrates treated with Westox Water
Repellent.
All oil, grease, form release agents and air pollution deposits must be removed prior to
application.
All surfaces are to be structurally sound.
Mortar joints and masonry that has voids, or is cracked, or contains weak or unsound material
must be repaired prior to application.
New concrete, new masonry and restoration work must reach full 28 day cure strength before
application. Should high salt content be present, desalinate with Westox Cocoon.

HORIZONTAL SURFACES

Wipe off any excess material sitting on top of low porosity tiles or tracking will occur.

APPLICATION

Westox Water Repellent is a single component solution, ready to use from the container.
The substrate surface temperature should be above 5°c and below 35°c.
To provide adequate coverage in a minimum amount of time, use low pressure airless
(knapsack) spray and flood coat the surface, starting at highest point.
Apply in a uniform manner in sufficient quantity to completely wet out the substrate.
Overlap each pass to avoid gaps and areas of insufficient coverage.
Apply second coat, wet on wet i.e. while the first coat is still wet.
Should high salt levels be present desalination is recommended prior to the application of
Westox Water Repellent refer to Westox Cocoon Data Sheet.

CLEAN UP

Wash all equipment immediately after use in white spirit.
