Considering the major cause of deterioration in masonry is the presence of water, the solution to the appearance of saline efflorescence, crazing and the development of mildew and mould could be very simple: keep water as far away as possible from wall faces.
SILANCOLOR PAINT and Silancolor Tonachino are siloxane resin-based finishes which work in synergy with the surface preparation products Silancolor Primer and Silancolor Base Coat to help maintain the breathability of substrates and give them a highly water-repellent finish. Once applied, they form a "micro-perforated" film with such a tight pattern of tiny holes that water is unable to pass through, but at the same time large enough to allow the passage of water vapour. This characteristic allows masonry to be preserved intact over the years.
