                                                                                 Untreated                                                                                            Treated

Liquid or gas can pass through the tiny holes of a porous surface..  In order to prevent porous surfaces, such as brickwork, from being penetrated by water or damaged by frost, a silicone water-repellent layer can be applied.  This will preserve the substrate.   A silicon water-repellent layer will dry clear.
