Description
Rain Defender Water Repellent is a colourless liquid that is designed to protect your brickwork, concrete or mortar against the elements for up to 12 years.

You may wonder why you need to use it? Look at the accompanying picture and you'll see how the falling rain beads onto the treated surface, which means it isn't penetrating through the brick.

This is important, because in time this will cause bricks and mortar to crumble. Rain Defender is also resistant to ultra-violet light which can cause discolouration.

The most tangible benefit though is that when rain penetrates brickwork it causes the temperature of the property to fall, so you stick the heating up a couple of notches.

In other words, Rain Defender will help to reduce your ever-increasing heating bills.

Rain Defender will benefit any home, but really comes into its own for houses that are in exposed areas, where the wind lashes the rain into your bricks.

When it dries, Rain Defender becomes virtually transparent so it will not change the appearance of your brick or stonework. We always recommend you test a small patch just to be sure though.

Trade Secrets
Before applying Rain Defender Water Repellent, make sure there is no lichen or mossy growth on brickwork by cleaning the bricks with a wire brush. Don’t allow the product to get on your windows as it will scratch the glass.

25m² (269 sq ft) per 5 litres (1 gallon). One coat is normally sufficient.

Preparation & Application
Prepare It
The surface to be treated must be clean, dry and porous enough to allow the product to penetrate the brickwork. Do not use detergent.
Use a wire brush to get rid of moss, lichen and other growths. Any cracks or joints should be sealed.

Apply It
Always test a small area first and allow to dry.

Use a paint brush to apply the product liberally by flooding the surface so that the product runs down at least 15cm, which you then paint in.

If you require a second coat you will need to wait 36 hours before applying.
