Product Highlights
  • Blocks Tannin Oils: Tannin oils from wood, such as redwood, red cedar and other species are easily blocked with Ottopol KO.
  • Blocks Stains On Drywall: Hard to block washable markers are effortlessly blocked, as well as other types of markers including felt tip markers. Lipstick and Vaseline will also be blocked with this polymer.
  • Blocks Water Stains from Concrete Blocks In Basements: Damp basements are a common problem, particularly here in the United States. Ottopol KO forms a water proof barrier under these wet conditions, eliminating unsightly stains on basement walls.
  • Blocks Fungal Growth In Damp or Humid Environments: High humidity environments cause the growth of mildew. The cationic nature of Ottopol KO forms natural barrier of the growth of fungi.
  • Excellent Adhesion: Ottopol KO and products made from this polymer display excellent adhesion to a variety of surfaces
