If you see water stains that extend across your ceilings or drops down the walls, then it is probably a leaky roof, which is normally present and seen in old houses. In the Philippines, we only have two seasons, Summer and Rainy Seasons, and none of these is my favorite. I hate it when it gets too hot, and all the more irritates me to see water stains run across the walls during rainy seasons. The worst part is that we are all girls at home so no one can actually do this dirty job for us unless I call and pay an expert to do it.
But did you know that Davco has launched their brand-new product line for cement waterproofing, Captain Shield, which is intended to deliver long-term protection with more lasting structures?
Captain Shield is a product of Davco, which was recently acquired by the Swiss company Sika, equipped with “WaterGuard” technology creating a protective layer that blocks water and prevents the sulfate-chloride attack.
Having a “WaterGuard” Technology shows three main benefits including the lessening of water absorption; preventing steel bar corrosion, and reducing chances of concrete porosity. The product is also easy to use and economical, has no effect on concrete strength and setting time, and it’s compatible with all types of cement. Just perfect for the girls’ bedroom walls that we’ve recently repainted. We are seeing water stains in some corners of the rooms, which made the paint bubbled.
Captain Shield, an admixture used for concrete structures or cement plasters, can be applied to foundations, beams and columns, slabs, external plastering, flooring, and bathrooms.
Guess what made it more exciting when I learned about this new product in the market? It’s being endorsed by my ultimate High School crush, Alvin Patrimonio! Hahaha! Yes, you’ve read it right, the heartthrob Basketball Player Alvin Patrimonio in the 80s.
So what promises does this product give? WaterGuard Technology provides the three main benefits:
- Lessens water absorption
- Helps prevent steel bar corrosion
- Lessens concrete porosity
- Easy to use and economical
- No effect on concrete strength and setting time
- Compatible to all types of cement
Good for structural and plastering waterproofing application for IHB needs

Sounds like an all in promising product huh?
