Terraco Silcoat WB

Terraco Silcoat WB

Silcoat WB is a specially formulated water repellent for building facades which is based on innovative waterborne technology. The product is environmentally friendly as the carrier solvent is water, whereas in previous generations of water repellent mineral spirits were required as a carrier.
