Boysen Acrytex’s highlights
To recap, Boysen Acrytex is an acrylic solvent-based coating that helps repel water and prevent seepage. It forms a seamless, non-porous, watertight film that serves as a moisture sealant for concrete and a stain inhibitor for wood.
It is used primarily as a topcoat for new and previously painted interior and exterior concrete and wooden surfaces. For now, you can start using it on your exterior walls to block the water coming in. We’ve made a table for you to easily recall the important notes when using Boysen Acrytex:

Create a Waterproof Home to Protect You This Rainy Season
Thanks to Boysen Acrytex’s durability, excellent adhesion, and watertight technology, a leaky wall is one thing off of your list now. But painting isn’t going to take care of everything. Before the rains come, look through possible troubles such as wall cracks or a jammed gutter that might cause seepage or worse, lead to flooding inside your home. It’s better to have all of these checked before painting so your painting process will proceed smoothly.

Next up, clean the gutters. You should know this all too well. Gutters are your first line of defense against the rain. When it gets clogged, it can’t drain well, which can result in the overflowing water seeping through the siding of your house. Refer to the first step, if ever the walls have cracks and the water gets in, it’ll cause problems on the walls. Clean it up by spraying a hose or using a trowel to scoop out anything that’s clogging the gutters.
While you’re at it, you should also observe the roof to make sure it won’t cause leaks. Use Boysen Roofgard to protect it from corrosion and dirt.
Take your time (but don’t take too long) fixing what needs to be repaired first and then you can finally weatherproof your walls with Boysen Acrytex. An important reminder when repainting with Acrytex, know that it is not recommended for application over oil-based or water-based coatings. Check what kind of paint was previously used. If it is oil-based or water-based, make sure to completely remove the paint film and clean the wall before applying the coating. This paint will not only protect your home against typhoons, but it will also help maintain the appearance of your home for a long time.
