The SHP 50 hydrophobic powder and 1-6184 water-soluble siloxane from Dow Corning are designed to offer new levels and methods of building materials protection for construction materials, maintaining solid durability when exposed to varying degrees of environmental deterioration. The 1-6184 siloxane cures to form a water-insoluble, water-repellent treatment within 24 hr of application, producing maximum penetration depth and remaining stable for up to one year, making it ideal for application on aged masonry. SHP 50 is a free-flowing powder designed to disperse easily and impart hydrophobicity to cementitious dry-mix powder applications. The powder forms a barrier to capillary movement of liquid water in grouts, joint fillers, mortar, EIFS, stucco, and facade-rendering applications.
