Hydrophobing agents

Hydrophobing agents are designed to make waterborne exterior paints hydrophobic. Used in silicone resin paints and plasters silicone resin emulsions like TEGO® Phobe 1659 is characterirized by an efficient reduction of the water absorption. Linear polysiloxanes like TEGO® Phobe 1409 lead to an excellent water beading effect on exterior coatings.
