• Produces flexible water repellent film.


WR 1300 is usually applied from dilute solution. Solutions are prepared by diluting distilled pure water and stirring the mixture gently until it uniforms. The extent of dilution will depends on the surface to be treated and surface properties desired.Care should be taken that the dilution remains acidic as alkaline PH will lead to evolution of hydrogen.


Coatings of WR 1300 Emulsion are usually heat cured to develop water repellence. Curing temperatures range from 120°C to 175oC. With catalyst added at a typical ratio of 20:1 (emulsion to catalyst). Curing times are generally 4 to 5 minutes at 150 oC or 30 to 40 Seconds at 180 oC..


It is recommended that normal safety precautions (hand gloves & safety goggles) be taken while handling the product. The material should be stored in original containers in a cool place and protected from direct exposure to sunlight. Product safety information required for safe use is not included.
