Masonry Creme

The ultimate clear waterproof paint & protective masonry cream.

The ultimate clear waterproof paint & protective masonry cream.

A surface treated with masonry cream will insulate mineral building materials by reducing water absorption. The masonry cream chemically bonds to the surface, penetrating up to 17mm to create an invisible insulation barrier.

Key features of our masonry cream include:

  • For use on a range of substrates including brick, stone, concrete and sandstone
  • Manufactured in Germany using the very latest, superior technology
  • It has undergone UKAS Accredited testing
  • Verified by the Energy Saving Trust
  • One-coat masonry protection cream
  • Penetrates up to 17mm into the substrate to provide a clear insulation barrier
  • Chemically bonds to mineral surfaces
  • Dries clear, it does not alter the appearance of the substrate
  • Super hydrophobic coating
  • Creates a self-cleaning surface like the Lotus Effect
  • Highly breathable
  • Helps prevent salt efflorescence and sulphate attack
  • Helps prevent discoloration
  • Discourages growth of moss, algae and lichens
  • Prevents frost damage
  • Proven performance

Super Hydrophobic Coating

A surface is considered super hydrophobic if a water droplet beads up (with a contact angle greater than 140⁰ and the droplets can slide aware from the surface readily (it has a small contact angle hysteresis). Super hydrophobic surfaces repel water, causing it to form beads because it is more attracted to itself than the surface. This means water will run off the surface making it extremely difficult to wet.

This is known as the ‘lotus effect’ due to its similarity to the lotus leaf but is also seen on duck feathers and butterfly wings.

Substrates coated with the protective masonry cream will respond in the same way – water will form droplets and won’t penetrate the substrate. Independent testing has shown that it reduces water absorption by 96.3% and meets the British standard for water vapour resistance BS EN ISO 7783:2011.

20 Year Product Guarantee

ProPERLA Masonry Crème benefits from a 20 year manufacturer’s guarantee but has been proven to perform for 25 years. When tested under 25 years accelerated weathering conditions there was no deterioration in performance or aesthetic appearance.

A Clear Insulation Barrier

The masonry cream creates a clear insulation barrier for single skin buildings and those built with a cavity. It has been proven to help retain heat in walls and reduce heat loss.

UKAS accredited tests have demonstrated that by reducing water absorption of the walls, our masonry cream lead to thermal performance benefits. It has been proven to meet ETAG 004;2011.

In addition, testing in a hygrothermal chamber revealed that a wall coated in the masonry cream and subjected to repeated heat-rain conditions in accordance with ETAG 034:2012, resulted in reduced heat loss when compared with the uncoated (control) wall. The uncoated wall showed on average an increase of 6⁰C of heat loss in comparison to the walls coated with ProPERLA Masonry Crème.

The clear coating improves thermal efficiency and contributes to lower energy consumption and lower energy bills, by keeping walls dry. Damp walls act as ‘thermal bridges’ – enabling heat to transfer from the inside out twice as quickly as it would if the walls remained dry.

Independent testing has shown that ProPERLA Masonry Crème reduces water absorption by 96.3% and meets the British standard for water vapour resistance BS EN ISO 7783:2011.
