- Water repellency
- Condensation risk
- Freeze/thaw resistance
- Resistance to ultraviolet light
- Durability (25 years)
Safeguard Lab – Flood Resistance Test
- Stormdry masonry protection cream used with Repointing Additive No.2 can stop flood water penetration, up to government guideline heights.
- Repointing Additive No.2 prevents cement shrinkage from occurring and creating cracks in the mortar
Giraffe Innovation – Energy Saving Analysis
- An application of Stormdry on a typical house can pay for itself in heating bill savings within 6 years.
- Stomrdry can save enough equivalent CO2 to repay its “carbon debt” within a month of application and reduce heating CO2 emissions for up to 30 years.
- The production, use & waste disposal of a 1m² treatment area of Stormdry produces less equivalent CO2 than the same production cycle of an 800g loaf of bread!
Safeguard Lab – Breathability Test
- A Stormdry treated wall is 90% as breathable as an untreated one. It is also 35% more breathable than the next-best tested alternative treatment, causing less complications
- Stormdry can be applied to an already damp wall, which means it is not necessary to wait for weeks for a wet wall to dry out, before starting works.
- Performance of Stormdry is consistent across a range of humidity levels.
Building Life – Protecting Spray Foam Insulation
- Stormdry is always a benefit when used to protect spray foam insulation. In all cases, it reduces the chance of interstitial condensation and structural damage.
- The breathable nature of Stormdry allows previously wet insulation to dry out over time, whilst protecting it from further water ingress.
- For this purpose, Stormdry treatment performs better than other non-breathable weather coatings.
Safeguard Lab – Frost Damage Test
- Stormdry can protect brick from freeze/thaw damage, helping to keep your wall in good condition through the winter.
- Standard water repellent sealers provide no resistance to freeze/thaw damage, showing the same results as untreated brick work.
- Extreme conditions can cause very significant damage to untreated brick work.
