Hydropel is a high-performance penetrating sealer used by itself to protect concrete, brick, mortar and masonry from the damaging effects of water intrusion.
Hydropel Sealer is a clear, water-based liquid that is sprayed or rolled onto horizontal or vertical surfaces. It does not affect appearance or breathability, and will not wear, fade, yellow, crack or peel.
Hydropel Sealer contains a unique blend of silane and siloxane compounds that chemically react with silicates below the surface of the substrate to form an insoluble, water-repellent barrier.

Apply Hydropel with a low pressure sprayer while the surface temperature is above 4 °C (40 °F) and remains above 4 °C (40 °F) for a minimum of 24 hours. Apply at the recommended rates of coverage
- 7.4 m²/L (300 sq. ft./gal.) dense concrete
- 5.9 m²/L (240 sq. ft./gal.) normal concrete
- 5.0 m²/L (200 sq. ft./gal.) concrete block
- 3.7 m²/L (150 sq. ft./gal.) split faced concrete
- 2.5 m²/L (100 sq. ft./gal.) red brick
- Not effective on non-silica substrates such as wood, vinyl, asphalt, metals and painted or sealed surfaces
- Maximum water resistance will be attained once the chemical reaction is complete, typically 4-7 days
- Limited repellency to oil
- Not recommended for constant immersion
- Overcoating with water-based paints or sealers is not recommended
