Safecoat Penetrating WaterStop
Safecoat Penetrating WaterStop improves water resistance and repellancy in a wide variety of surfaces, including brick walls, concrete foundations, stucco, stone and most unglazed tile. Because Safecoat Penetrating WaterStop is not toxic and low odor, it is ideal for use indoors instead of a typical high solvent content sealer; yet, it is durable enough for use outdoors. It is particularly useful as a periodic maintenance coat for surfaces originally treated with Safecoat WaterShield.
