What is hydrophobization

Hydrophobization is the process by which a water-repellent layer is formed on the material. It is essential for the material to be porous and to soak up the hydrophobizing agent. He is colorless and also lacks any specific odor. The composition is usually coated, but it can also be applied by spraying or, in the case of smaller objects, by dipping. A minor problem may be the different coloring of the treated material that came into contact with water from the material not treated. However, this problem disappears at the time of drying. The length of time the hydrophobizing agent acts is different for individual materials, but generally it is decades when high quality solutions are used.
