WaterKote is the supreme waterproofing medium developed by the original inventor of single pack acrylic waterproofing systems in the early 1980’s known as Duram RainKote.
At the time of his invention, he owned a company known by many in KZN as Durametz cc. and was responsible for the growth and acceptance of this new waterproofing medium nationwide.
Now, over thirty years later, he has introduced into South Africa a new range of coatings to enhance the beauty and value of properties both residential and industrial.
WaterKote epitomises the modern need for a waterproofing medium that addresses water damage whilst simultaneously enhancing the aesthetics.
The universality of this medium is without equal in South Africa at this current time as it has extensive applications that supercedes almost all other mediums available today.
We are fanatical about attention to detail and if you were to ask any chemist or paint technician about the need for a dry film acticide in coastal regions they will tell you it is essential, yet search as you may, you will not find coatings with the acticide additive for dry film protection. WaterKote includes this vital ingredient which halts the growth of mildew and algae.
However, there is much, much more to this Transparent, super clear waterproofing medium. Because it is see-through you can mend translucent roof sheeting without affecting the aesthetics, particularly around skylights on roofs.
One of the most popular uses is to overcoat normal cheap paint to protect it from dirt, UV degradation and moisture ingress. It deepens the colour and preserves the paint far behond its short lifespan.
Besides the information on this page, we have dedicated a full website to WaterKote here at www.water.kote.co.za please visit this comprehensive site for videos, gallery and in-depth information and guidelines.

Our WaterKote Demo video shows just how impressive and effective our product works on wall cladding and can work on any other surface you wish to waterproof.
If you are planning on using WaterKote on an area which is plagued with mildew or algae, AlgiKote is the product to help clean the area without leaving any soapy residue and also kills the algae so that it will never regrow in that are again once you've applied the WaterKote
WaterKote is perfect for waterproofing your area, but what if you need to have a non-slip section for when it rains?
Applying a single coat of GripKote will give a slip proof surface without discolouring it.
This completely clear coating is perfect to apply to tiles or any surface, whether it be interior surfaces or exterior.
WaterKote as a protective coating shielding walls from UV degradation as well as waterproofing of the substrate, maintaining the aesthetics fully since the coating is completely transparent.
WaterKote brings out the full colour of natural stone or rock and keeps this beautiful colouring even in torrential rain.
Because WaterKote has a dry-film acticide built into the formulation, it will also keep algae from growing on the surface. There is no other coating you can buy that does what WaterKote does, and at our price per square meter it is a steal.
Rock, slate, cement, concrete, brick, clay tiles, ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles, terra-cotta tiles, driveways, walls, floors, ceilings, wood, pvc aluminium, steel and just about every substrate will benefit from our proprietary, transparent coating.
Because it is also non-static, it is being used on polycarbonate roof sheeting to prevent the settling of dust and dirt and becomes self washing with each rain.
WaterKote can be tinted as seen in the above photo.
One of our customers threw in some terracotta acrylic tint into his WaterKote to help bring his tiles back to life.
And as you can see, the newly painted tiles look incredible in comparison to his old weathered tiles.
WaterKote has tremendous benefits for tiled roofs, whether old or new.
When applied to an old but cleaned roof, it will maintain the clean look for many years whilst simultaneously keeping water from penetrating the clay tiles which add enormous weight to the wooden trusses. It will delay the regrowth of algae substantially obviating the need for regular cleaning expenses.
Because WaterKote is a supremely hard-wearing proprietary new polymer, with a very smooth finish, dirt and bird droppings are washed off with each rainfall. Gone are the days when you see "ground-cover" growing on your roof tiles.
WaterKote can be applied to flooring, to help waterproof and seal it for long-lasting protection. It also makes it super easy to clean your floors.
As seen here, one of our customers painted their floor with only ONE coat of WaterKote but as you can see... the glossy finish speaks for its self and will be wonderfully easy to maintain.
WaterKote is an exceptionally effective coating for thatched roofs.
Preserving the good looks from discolouring, waterproofing and weight control from heavy rains.
