Description

Sikagard®-706 Thixo is a one-component reactive silane based impregnation cream. It is a solvent free product with ~ 80% content of active substance. Sikagard®-706 Thixo complies with the highest requirements of EN 1504-2 for hydrophobic Impregnation (penetration depth class II & resistance to freeze and thaw salt stresses).

Uses

Sikagard®-706 Thixo is used as water-repellent impregnation (hydrophobic treatment) for absorbent substrates such as concrete in civil engineering or building concrete structures subjected to heavy stress due to freeze and thaw cycles and de-icing salts or chloride attack in marine environment.

  • Suitable for protection against ingress (Principle 1, method 1.1 of EN 1504-9)
  • Suitable for moisture control (Principle 2, method 2.1 of EN 1504-9)
  • Suitable for increasing the resistivity (Principle 8, method 8.1 of EN 1504-9)

Benefits

  • Non-sag (thixotropic) consistency, allowing wastagefree application of sufficient quantities and assuring deep penetration
  • Reduction of water absorption
  • Reduction of absorption of aggressive or deleterious agents dissolved in water (i.e. de-icing salts or chloride from marine environment)
  • No noticeable change of water vapour permeability
  • Not film forming
  • Ready for use
  • Long term efficiency, deep penetration
  • Increases the resistance of concrete to freeze and thaw cycles and de-icing salts
  • Resistant to sea water
  • Low VOC content
