FIRST CHOICE ACRYLIC WATERPROOFING

DESCRIPTION :

First Choice Acrylic Waterproofing is a cost effective, durable water resistant acrylic compound, which is used in conjunction with re-inforcing membrane. It is designed to waterproof concrete roofs, ridge capping, parapets, flashing, roof screws and lap joints on metal roof sheeting.

RECOMMENDED PAINT SYSTEM :

1. SURFACE PREPARATION:

The area to be waterproofed must be dry, free of any dirt, dust, loose particles and other contaminants. All metal surfaces should be free of rust and primed with one coat of Warrior Metal Etch Primer prior to application of First Choice Acrylic Waterproofing. Surface preparation and application may vary depending on the nature, size and shape of the substrate. For large projects or when in doubt consult the Warrior Paints Technical department.

2. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCESS:

a) Apply by brush or roller one liberal coat of First Choice Acrylic Waterproofing to substrate and allow to dry. (0.25 to 0.5 litres per m²)

b) Apply by brush or roller one liberal coat of First Choice Acrylic Waterproofing and firmly press the waterproofing membrane into the wet waterproofing liquid using a stiff brush or roller. (1.0 litres per m²). Smooth out and eliminate all air bubbles and creases. Allow a minimum overlap of 50mm on adjacent membrane strips. Ensure that the First Choice Waterproofing is constantly wet by not placing more than 1m of membrane at a time.

c) Whilst wet immediately apply a third coat of First Choice Acrylic Waterproofing to ensure that the fabric is completely saturated. (0.5 litres per m²) Allow to dry for a minimum of 4 hours.

d) Finish with either two coats of First Choice Acrylic Waterproofing (0.25 to 0.5 litres per m² per coat) or one coat First Choice Acrylic Waterproofing Liquid and two First Choice Acrylic Finishing Coats of your choice. A spreading rate of 2.5 to 3.0 l of First Choice Acrylic Waterproofing per square meter of reinforcing membrane for the complete system is recommended.

e) It is important that First Choice Acrylic Waterproofing extends 50mm beyond the membrane to ensure adequate adhesion in order that the edge does not lift.

f) When waterproofing a parapet wall ensure that the First Choice Acrylic Waterproofing extends 50mm beyond the membrane, which should extend 100mm over the edge of the parapet wall.
