Tech Shield System

The Tech Shield Water Repellent System from Innovative Concrete Technology, LLC protects concrete masonry structures from rainwater intrusion & related damage.

The Tech Shield System utilizes admixtures for both concrete masonry units (CMU) and masonry mortar.

  1. The blocks (CMU) are produced at the factory with integral water-repellent admixture.
  2. The mortar used for the construction project incorporates a water-repellent admixture.

Used properly in new construction, the Tech Shield System provides the following benefits:

  • Lasting resistance to wind-driven rain
  • Reduced absorption and moisture wicking
  • Decreased potential for unsightly efflorescence
  • Enhanced color retention of architectural block & mortar

ConTec TS-922, TS-941, and formula variations* thereof are qualified Tech Shield System components use in the manufacture of water-repellent CMU. Tech Shield Mortar Admixture (or WR-650 powder) is either jobsite added or pre-blended into packaged masonry mortars to produce water-repellant masonry mortar.
