Re: [Q] Moisture through capillarity - prevention/cure products?!?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Thank you for replying - I guess (not being in the specialty) that for 
me "cracks" would be something related to defects of a larger magnitude/size, 
whereas capillarity upward moisture path being something inherent to the 
brick material - thus one needing (possibly) a different solution than the 

Please look at the following:

then - in the menu on the left side please click on: Humidite 
ascensionnelle --> then please look at the first picture, then click through 
the items thusly revealed in the center (starting with "Origine de l'humidite 
ascensionnelle"). Do all these look like a product and methodology that could 
be addressed via epoxy, and - if so - who could provide the entire process 
capabilities (equipment and substances)?

Thanks again,
