    We are destribute that product within UK. The sample you watched on youtube I did myself at my house. Did not sold a lot since as the product is new and not much known but you can have a litre to try and see the result and then when satisfied we can discuss

    Not at all. You will not find any membrane, change the colour or anything like that. T It has a uniqe formula and the reaction goes through the structure. You guaranteed not to see any membrane.
    We tried the coating on different materils from wood to stones.

    Yeah but you've not seen its effect after 20 years have you ? These products that claim these water repellent effects often weaken the superficial structure to the surface they are applied to , They have a good initial effect, but in countries where the ambient temperature varies a lot , they are not such a big deal .. or can you prove your product , and substantiate it to be resistant to big temperature fluctuations ? and retain its water resistant abilities for more than a few years ?

    The product was tested and certified. The certificate of conformity I can e-mail to anyone who is intrested in it.
    The product was developed in Ukraine. The climate condition is not much different from UK. The winter is more severe there but it is not Asia or Africa.

    sounds a bit like the much vaunted Thomson's water seal that was advertised incessantly on the box a few years back ..... then just disappeared

    Think that suffered from the effects Muz has mentioned
