Dry-Treat Sealer Features: Chemical Reaction
Dry-Treat impregnating sealers are engineered molecules, which gives them their superior properties and unique benefits. Main molecules have two main parts with different properties: part of the molecule is hydrophobic which repels oil and water, whilst other sealers are attracted to water. The sealer is applied to the surface and starts to react with moisture in the air along with the material. This reaction can cause the sealer part molecules that are attracted to water to break off leaving a changed molecule behind. Later on in the reaction process, it breaks the bonds between the masonry and the attached oxygen and hydrogen atoms and bonds to the lattice. Essentially, the treatment becomes part of the material itself. This chemical bond is strong, holding the masonry together with a longer lifespan than other sealers.
