Clear wall sealer for brick, stone and render


Transparent, breathable, water repellent wall treatment that protects walls and improves thermal efficiency. This non-drip, brush or roller applied wall treatment dries to a transparent, colourless finish and prevents damp, mould and dirt on masonry to provide long lasting protection.


 

Stopping damp on solid brick walls

This water repellent sealer protects solid brick walls from damp and mould while retaining breathability to allow any moisture within the wall to escape.


Protecting limestone walls from damp and dirt

Preventing frost damage on limestone walls has never been easier. Limelite Brick and Stone Protector waterproofs porous stone walls like limestone to prevent frost damage, reduce the growth of mould and algae and prevent dirt and pollution from causing discolouration.


Preserving sandstone walls

Applying a waterproof masonry seal to porous walls like sandstone helps prevent erosion and damage to the surface and preserve the natural colour.

Stopping damp and mould growth in older homes

By waterproofing brick and stone walls and reducing the amount of water absorbed by brickwork by up to 98%, Limelite Brick and Stone Protector can reduce damp and mould growth in older buildings with solid brick or stone walls. It also retains breathability, allowing walls to dry naturally.


Improving the thermal efficiency of solid brick and stone walls

By preventing water penetration, Limelite Brick and Stone Protector improves the thermal efficiency and insulating properties of the wall. Since dry walls are better insulators than wet walls, this helps to maximise the wall’s thermal resistance or "R" value. This helps to retain heat and reduce heating bills, particularly in older buildings with solid brick or stone walls.
