In the early 1920s, polymer chemist Edward Addis Thompson
developed a product that protected buildings from exterior water damage. His
discovery became known as Thompson's® Water Seal®
Clear Multi-Surface Waterproofer and initially was used by architectural and
construction firms for concrete applications.
After recognizing the fast-growing deck-building trend, The Thompson's Company
expanded distribution of Thompson's® Water Seal®
Clear Multi-Surface Waterproofer to consumers in 1982.
The deck protection category was born.
Thompson's® Water Seal® Clear
Multi-Surface Waterproofer is just one product in an extended brand line that
includes wood protection, concrete care, and our newest addition, Thompsons®
Water Seal® Advanced Waterproofers — a breakthrough
formula providing the ultimate in advanced waterproofing power.
