Can MasonProof™ Waterproof a Cardboard Box? Yes. Yes it Can.


When it comes to masonry projects, the thing to think about is how waterproof your tackifying agent is. After all, “looking good” only goes so far if it doesn’t last. Who wants to regrout on an annual basis to repair cracked seams and problem areas that water can seep into? Nobody, that’s who.

That’s the biggest reason we create MasonProof™. It’s every mason’s (or general person’s) best friend when one starts in on creating a beautiful patio, or tiling a shower (there are far more options, but, we don’t want to bore you with a long list…)

How does MasonProof™ work?

Nano sized MasonProof™ penetrates up to 5mm deep into the substrate and provides repellency into the pores of cement-based structures where other film formers like silicone resins, acrylic resins, and epoxy resins cannot penetrate. Because it functions at the microscopic level it does not eliminate the breathability of the treated structure.

Is it easy to use?

In short, absolutely. Whether you’re a professional or a recreational project tackler, the MasonProof™ product is quite simple to use, really. It’s easily applied by spray, brush or roller to new or existing masonry structures to protect them from mildew, fungus, efflorescence, leaching, staining, scaling, and spalling corrosion of steel within reinforced concrete is reduced or eliminated.

Ideal for use on:

  • Bricks and mortar
  • Concrete slabs
  • Paths and driveways
  • Masonry blocks and pavers
  • Cement render walls
  • Showers and bathroom accents
  • Floors
  • Stucco
  • Grout

Check out this recent test we conducted to see if our MasonProof™ product could waterproof a cardboard box. Think about how porous a cardboard box is and try to imagine a way that it can take on, and hold in, water. The test showcased here illustrates adding water to an untreated box, and a box treated with the MasonProof™ solution. Considering the host, the results are pretty impressive.

Choosing MasonProof™ for masonry waterproofing applications increases water-resistance and provides long-term protection, which is essential for preservation of the structure and preservation of the owner’s dollars. When compared to competitive solutions you’ll quickly learn that MasonProof™:

  • Is not a film-former like other products on the market
  • Is not a surface sealer like other products on the market
  • It penetrates deeply into the masonry substrate, working from the inside out
  • It is, for all intents and purposes, permanent waterproofing protection
