ELOTEX® ERA200 is a highly active, efflorescence-reducing and hydrophobizing additive in powder form based on natural resin technology. ELOTEX® ERA200 is efficient against primary and secondary efflorescence caused by the precipitation of water soluble salts on the surface of mineral binder. It acts as a multifunctional additive with several efflorescence-preventing mechanisms, which serve to reduce capillary connectivity, the size of efflorescence forming crystals, and water permeability. ELOTEX® ERA200 maintains the aesthetics of building materials over time. Besides its efflorescence-reducing effect, it shows excellent wetting and mixing properties, as well as improvements in colour stability and brightness. Furthermore, it improves mortar rheology and increases surface hydrophobicity. ELOTEX® ERA200 is easy to dose with very low dust formation.
