Invitation and Conference Aims

Following the success of the first six Hydrophobe Conferences on the Water Repellent Treatment of Building Materials held in Delft, Zürich, Hannover, Stockholm, Brussels and Rome, you are cordially invited to the 7th issue to be held at the Laboratorio Nacional de Engenharia Civil (LNEC) in Lisbon, Portugal on the 11th and 12th September 2014.

The aim of the Hydrophobe conferences is to promote research and development of water repellent treatments in order to study their performance, improve their durability and promote their appropriate use in buildings and other civil engineering structures. The conference will provide a forum for scientists, technicians and experts in the area of water repellent treatments to present their work and exchange ideas and experiences.
