Dry-Treat Sealer Features: Salt Resistance
Freeze thaw is a phenomenon that occurs when water fills up the surface pores of a porous material. Dry-Treat products are salt resistant, which means they provide protection against salt attack and freeze thaw damage. Salts must be in water in order to move through a porous building material. Ions in salt water are surrounded by a shell of water molecules, and when water freezes, it expands and spalls the surface. When Dry-Treat sealer is applied, it offers resistance to salt attack: the building material repels the water and the dissolved salts which can cause the damage.
