Potassium Methyl Siliconate
Potassium methyl Siliconate is an aqueous solution of Potassium methyl Siliconate, water dilutable having slightly yellowish appearance used for the impregnation of mineral construction materials to make them water-repellent without significantly reducing water vapor permeability. Treatment with potassium methyl siliconate prevents efflorescence of salts absorbed and makes cleaning of the tiled floor easier. Low fired clay products such as roof tiles, bricks, unglazed floor tiles absorb water and the soluble salts are transported to the surface, disfiguring the product. The product is even used by chemical factories or even by textile industry for dry cleaning the fabrics.
