There are many types and manufacturers of silicone, silanes and siloxanes. Each of these is unique. Some will promote adhesion, some water repellence, some oil repellence, some will blend with solvents, some with water, some will penetrate deep into a substrate, others will go to the surface. Some have small molecules; some have large molecules. Some will darken a surface; others will leave the natural color. At Serveon we have spent years formulating the right combinations and amounts to achieve maximum protection and longevity for each substrate and purpose.
From comfortable backyard patios to driveways and sidewalks made from concrete, pavers, natural stone masonry or wood, nothing brings out the rich colors like Serveon’s wet look products. Serveon’s wet look products represent both advanced acrylic and silicone technology. Acrylic wet look products have low sheen to high gloss finishes, are long lasting and powerfully adhere to the substrate forming a protective barrier that resists vehicle oils, salts and many other staining materials. Serveon’s silicone wet look brings out the rich colors of the substrate with a matte finish, is extremely long lasting, and provides maximum protection from salt water and effloresence.
Silicones, in addition to being water and stain resistant, the two largest applications, also have other less known yet remarkable properties. Serveon’s ClearSteel is a revolutionary silicone based product that once applied will prevent unsightly, often downright ugly, black algae and mold and various fungus often found on concrete and natural stone etc. from growing and re-growing on the surface for up to five years and often longer keeping the surface clean. Serveon’s consolidator-densifier represents still another special silicone (silane) with unique abilities to “fix” deteriorating, crumbling and soft stone. This silane will penetrate deep, 2 to 4 inches, into decaying, crumbling or soft friable stone or stone such as slate and concrete and then begin a process where it forms strong cross-link bridges with the substrate and begins replacing the binding materials that have been lost over time or require densifying. This product is great for any stone or concrete that is deteriorating or crumbling, has salt water erosion and for restoring monuments, statues and old buildings.
