Masonry should be completely dry before Silicone Water Repellent is applied. Treatment should not be started if temperature is below freezing as the possibility of entrapped water exists. A spray application is preferred but brush on applications can be just as successful. Take care in making sure equipment is clean and gaskets and hose are solvent resistant. Coverage should be no more than 200 square feet per gallon for each application. For spraying use a coarse low pressure spray pattern and thoroughly wet the surface. Hold nozzle about 6 inches from surface and move nozzle so that the solution runs down about 6 to 10 inches from the point of application.
