It was 1953 when UGL held its first national sales meeting and introduced the DRYLOK line, including nine separate products for waterproofing basements, stopping active masonry leaks, protecting and beautifying interior or exterior masonry walls.
Since that time, a nationally recognized rating magazine has rated waterproofing paints on two separate occasions and both times, DRYLOK Masonry Waterproofer has come out on top.
Always changing with the times and giving consumers what they want, DRYLOK Masonry Waterproofer was first formulated as a powdered masonry coating. Next, UGL introduced a ready-mixed oil-based formula and than a latex-based formula. All formulas, equally good but suiting different purposed for the consumer.
Recently, in response to government voc regulations, UGL was able to formulate the DRYLOK Latex Based Masonry Waterproofer into a low VOC formula for the OTC States.
In the past couple of years, the mass media has created a buzz regarding Mold/Mildew resistant coatings; this has created a consumer driven need to offer a top rated coating with a mildew resistant additive.
The UGL laboratory technicians went to work to develop a masonry waterproofer coating that could hold up to the DRYLOK reputation, holding back water equal to or greater than a basement height of water and have additional consumer friendly properties.
The results were DRYLOK Extreme Masonry Waterproofer. DRYLOK Extreme has been tested by independent labs to hold back 12 psi of water pressure (a wall of water 26 ft high). It is a latex base, low odor voc compliant formula. It has a smoother finish for consumers who want a house paint type look with the waterproofing capabilities of a waterproofing paint. It comes with a 15 year – fully transferable warranty. As you know, both our traditional Oil-Base and Latex-Base DRYLOK Masonry Waterproofer are inert coatings, which mean they will not promote the growth of mold/mildew. Our new DRYLOK Extreme has a mildewcide additive to further prevent the potential for mold/mildew growth on the dry paint film under extreme situations.
DRYLOK Extreme, the next generation is everything consumers could want in a masonry waterproof coating and more.
