ImperGuard® Color Silicate Stain

Silicate mineral stain for aesthetics and protection of concrete

ImperGuard®Color Silicate Stain is a system of two products (colored base + silicate thinner) to obtain a silicate mineral impregnation with low opacity to color and protect exterior or interior concrete facades.

1. Transparent pigmented silicate mineral stain
This stain gives a new aesthetic dimension to the works. It tints, embellishes or standardizes the appearance of concrete while preserving its skin and its minerality. ImperGuard®Color Silicate Stain associated with ImperGuard®Color Silicate Thinner can be diluted by default in 3 different levels depending on the desired level of transparency. It is however possible to create a custom opacity by diluting the stain between 1: 2 and 1:10.

2. Water-repellent and mineralizing effect
ImperGuard® Color Silicate Stain has a water-repellent property.It provides lasting protection against the penetration of water and thus limits the harmful effects of humidity: infiltration, acid rain, erosion, freeze / thaw cycle, formation of mosses and lichens, appearance of efflorescence or saltpetre... ImperGuard® Color Silicate Stain also has anti-dust properties. It hardens the surface of concrete to make it less fragile and less dusty.

The system ImperGuard® Color Silicate Stain complies with the AFNOR NFT 36-005 standard: Family I class 1b (products containing at most 5% organic compounds). ImperGuard® Color Silicate Stain is a non film-forming product which perfectly respects the mineral aspect of the concrete. In addition, the backing remains permeable to air and water vapor.
