AbstractSilicone treatment of bricks prior to their use in construction as a means of reducing efflorescence and improving the strength of bond and resistance to moisture penetration of masonry has been reviewed previously. At the same time results of tests made in the Division of Building Research indicated that the treatment of high-suction bricks with silicone resulted in improved performance of brickwork with respect to resistance to moisture penetration, compared with similar brickwork of untreated high-suction bricks.
