Zycosil penetrates into the substrate from 0.5 mm up to 1 mm and converts silica surface to a alkyl siloxane (hydrophobic) surface while providing exposure of substrate to air and also prevents flaky surface. Also, this product is resistant to weather and UV radiation. It’s soluble in water Appearance: transparent liquid inclined to light yellow Viscosity in room temperature: less than 300 cPs Specific gravity in room temperature: 1.01 Flash point: 80 Celsius degrees Freeze point: 5 Celsius degrees Solubility: soluble in water (with hardness less than 1000 ppm) pH: %10 solution in water is neutral Zycosil contains Nano particles which provide a hydrophobic surface while applying on materials surface without any change in color. Nano particles sizes in this product is 10 nm. In the following figure you can observe how particles and substrate are connected together.
Zycosil is a penetrative reactive mixture of organo-silica. This mixture with its active groups, reacts with mineral (inorganic) substrates containing silanol (Si-OH) like concrete, cement, stone, brick and reinforced concrete and causes creation of siloxane bonds (Si-O-Si) between substrate and Zycosil molecule. This product results in a stable hydrophobic surface as reaction with inorganic substrates. The water in contact with Zycosil surface won’t face any impurities and no any toxic materials will permeate in it.
