Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream from Safeguard Europe gets the okay from the BBA.

Accelerated ageing sees Stormdry get BBA blessing

As part of its certification by the British Board of Agrément, Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream underwent accelerated aging tests. As a result, its BBA certificate states it will remain effective as a masonry water repellent for 25 years.

Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream prevents rain penetration and also boosts thermal resistance. The product can be applied by either brush or roller and will match the original finish within 12 hours.

The cream penetrates deeper than liquid-applied water repellents (up to 12mm in flettons) so it can better bridge cracks in the masonry, and have a much greater life expectancy.

With the Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream, the BBA particularly examined water repellency, condensation risk, freeze/ thaw resistance, and UV resistance. They found it resists the uptake of water into masonry substrates without increasing the risk of condensation, and resists both the effects of freeze/ thaw cycling and UV light.

Unlike some other rain penetration and damp-proofing treatments, Stormdry lines the pores of the masonry so that water can escape as vapour but cannot enter in liquid form. This enables it to answer to the damp issues encountered in cavity wall insulation.

Stormdry is ideal for use with most forms of wall insulation, such as cavity wall insulation and internal wall insulation. Safeguard Europe also provides technical support and advice from their experienced staff members.
