Coating and Water Repellents

  • Terra Coat (glaze replacement for terra cotta and brick)
  • Acrylic Floor Sealer
  • MasonRE Potassium Silicate Coatings (Paints)
  • Water Repellents
  • Epochrome
  • Fixative

Once we have completed a new construction or restoration job we can seal the stone to give it a protective and breathable coat while leaving the stone with a natural appearance.

Anti-Graffity Coatings

Anti-graffiti coatings can be invisible to the naked eye making them ideal for preserving historic buildings. There are two categories of anti-graffiti coatings. The first, sacrificial coatings, are applied to a surface and then removed when graffiti is applied. The surface underneath will be left clean and a new sacrificial coating can be applied. The other type of coating are permanent coatings that prevent graffiti from adhering to a surface in the first place.

Newer coatings are made of charged polymeric materials that form a gel on the surface of the building or substrate. Some of the most important characteristics of anti-graffiti coatings are:

  • Sufficient adherence without damage to historical buildings
  • Hydrophobicity (water-repellance)
  • Environmentally friendly composition and processing
  • Resistance to UV aging and weathering
  • Good Cleaning Efficiency
