Thorough waterproof protection for floors
An easy way to resurface and damp proof areas. The coating is waterproof, yet vapour permeable to allow the substrate to breathe.
|Suitable for||Concrete, brick, masonry|
|Interior or Exterior||Exterior, Interior|
|Composition||Cement and resin blend|
|Coverage||Approximately 12.5m² per coat per 25kg|
|Recommended number of coats||2|
|Dry film thickness||1mm|
|Curing time (at 20°C)||16 hours|
|Minimum application temperature||5°C|
Surfaces must be cleaned of all grease, dust, cement laitance and other contaminants. Steel and iron surfaces must be scale free. Weak and spalled concrete must be cut back to a sound substrate and repaired using an approved mortar. All surfaces must be thoroughly wetted to achieve saturation. A minimum air and surface temperature of 5°C is essential.
Place the powder into a bucket and pour in approximately three quarters of the Watco Liquid Waterproofer liquid, mix using a slow speed drill and paddle mixer. Mix for approximately 3 minutes until a lump free, creamy consistency is achieved. For floors add the remaining liquid and mix thoroughly. For other applications add only until the required consistency is achieved.
If appearance is critical we recommend the application of a small trial area first.
Whilst the surface is damp but free from standing water the first coat can be applied. Use a medium hard short bristled brush or roller. The application thickness should be no more than 1.5mm and no less than 0.5mm. The second coat may be applied as soon as the first is cured, normally 12-24 hours. For flooring applications a total thickness should be between 1-3mm. For walls 1-2mm. To withstand 3m head of water the coating thickness should be 2mm on the floor and 1.5mm on the wall. On flooring application a spiked roller should be used to release air and help even out the surface.
