Sika-1 Waterproofer is an aqueous solution which blocks the capillaries and pores in brick, stone and concrete substrates, providing a barrier against the transmission of water.

Sika-1 Waterproofer is a liquid additive that prevents water from being absorbed through sand or cement renders, screeds and mortar. Sika-1 Waterproofer is a complex colloidal silicate solution that blocks the pores and capillaries in sand and cement renders. It can be used on its own or as an additive, as part of a waterproofing system.
