Whitson's Hydrophobix has been specifically developed for use as a water-repellent agent for lime-based finishes. Due to special modifications, it also offers far superior stain resistance and stain release properties when compared to typical water-repellent agents sold for use with lime plasters. Treated surfaces exhibit long lasting water-repellent and oil-repellent properties, without altering the water vapour permeability of the substrate. This makes Hydrophobix ideal for both interior and exterior protection, and is particularly suited for the preservation of finishes in showers and wet rooms.
Please note that this product is supplied as a concentrate, so must be diluted as instructed prior to use. Where smaller areas are to be treated, we suggest you consider using our pre-diluted product Whitson’s Hydrophobix Ready to Use.
