Groupe Berkem has developed XILIX Hydro-Oléo, a water-repellent solution for roofs designed to protect porous materials such as unfinished roofs, stone facades, hard floors and all other porous, non-cracked building materials. XILIX Hydro-Oléo forms a colourless waterproofing barrier to prevent water infiltration and the spread of algae, lichen and fungi, which can weaken the water-repellent and insulating properties of materials. Protecting roofs from these problems is therefore essential to ensure that the materials used are safe and long-lasting.
XILIX Hydro-Oléo is a water and oil repellent impregnation solution that protects materials from water infiltration, pollutants and grease. It permanently slows down the formation of algae and lichen and protects against premature soiling.
Our waterproofing solution for roofs is particularly effective for :
Thanks to its colourless, invisible, non-film-forming formula, XILIX Hydro-Oléo does not alter the appearance of the surfaces treated and allows them to breathe. Its beading effect allows water to run off, preventing it from seeping into materials. This keeps the roof and materials dry and insulating.
A waterproofing treatment must be applied to a clean substrate that has been cleaned beforehand. Whether manual or mechanical, cleaning must eliminate fungi, algae, lichen and any micro-organisms that may be embedded in the materials.
To optimise the effectiveness of XILIX Hydro-Oléo, we recommend applying a XILIX algicide and fungicide treatment beforehand and cleaning your surfaces with XILIX high-power cleaner.
Before applying our water-repellent roofing solution, it is always advisable to carry out a test on an inconspicuous part of the substrate and to protect non-porous surfaces (glass surfaces, joinery and PVC, wood and metal components). A ready-to-use solution, XILIX Hydro-Oléo requires no preparation. It can be applied by roller or brush to small surfaces and by spray for larger surfaces. A second coat may be necessary on very porous substrates that are particularly exposed to the weather.
