Brick Products

The earliest examples of bricks have been found in the Middle East and Asia and have been identified to date back to 7500BCE. Today, hundreds of variations are in use across the world. They are used to build walls, pavements, roads and many other elements. Originally the term ‘brick’ was used to identify a ‘unit’ that would have been formed from mostly clay and fell within certain size constraints. Today the same term covers a wide range of solid rectangular units. Sand, lime, quartz, concrete, and even crushed flint are used within its manufacture.

The strength, porosity, quality and durability of brickwork varies massively. This is due to wide variations in manufacturing techniques. When it comes to durability, prevailing weather conditions and the core materials used are major factors, but on a huge scale moisture penetrating into buildings creates problems with dampness and degradation.





Protecting Properties From Damp

StoneCare4U water repellents and sealers are highly resistant to moisture and will help keep any building dry. Importantly, our products enable the substrate to breathe and existing moisture to naturally evaporate. Our sealers also guarantee long term protection because they soak deeply into the brick. StoneCare4U products are a cost-effective way of protecting properties from damp. Above all, it reduces issues with building materials caused by moisture.

Apart from exposure to the elements, the quality and density of the brick used is the predominant factor in determining the lifespan of a building. This will also cause wide variations in the amount of sealer required.  For example, the cheaper or lower quality of the substrate, the more product will be required to seal it properly.  Certainly, our unique products are free from harmful chemicals and solvents and are therefore safe to use in public areas, around vegetation and animals.

How to Apply The Sealer For Brick

Our products are easy to apply, in all but damp or very cold conditions. Application ratios can vary from 4 to 8 m² per litre. You will find a normal handheld sprayer, roller or paintbrush is perfect for the job. For large commercial areas, an airless sprayer can be used for expediency’s sake.
