Aquaproof 1K is available
in bucket - 5 / 10 kg
Storage/ Shelf Life
AquaProof 1K has a shelf life of 12 months from date of manufacture if stored at temperatures range between 5°C and 40°C.
If these conditions are exceeded, DCP Technical Department should be contacted for advice.
AquaProof 1K should not be applied to frozen substrates or if ambient temperature is below 5°C or expected to fall below 5°C
The area must not be exposed to moving water during application.
Aquaproof 1K can be submerged with water after 5 – 7 days of application depending on ambient temperatures and relative humidity.
The technical data are specified at 23 ° C.
The surfaces to be coated should be clean, sound, and free from contamination. Remove any traces of curing compound, laitance, organic growth or any other loose materials. This is best obtained by using high pressure water or light grit blasting. Substrate containing honey combing, damaged or deteriorated concrete should be repaired using suitable repair mortars from DCP repair systems before coating.
No special primer is
required, but substrate should be pre-soaked with clean water prior to
application of Aquaproof 1K.
To ensure proper mixing, a mechanically powered mixer or drill fitted with suitable paddle should be used. Add the 4.7 litre water to a clean container.
The powder component is then added slowly to the water while mixing continuously with low speed mixer/drill (400 - 600 rpm). Mixing time should be continued for 3 minutes until a uniform consistency is obtained.
Aquaproof 1K can be applied by brush, or spray machines. The mixed material should be brushed well into the surface. Strike off with brush in one direction.
Care must be taken not to spread the materials too thin. The first coat should be applied at a wet film thickness of 1 mm. When the material begins to drag, do not add any water, but dampen the surface again.
A minimum of 3 - 5 hours, depending on the prevailing ambient temperature, should be given for the first coat to cure before applying the second coat. If the first coat is fully dried, pre-soaking is needed before applying the second coat.
For brush applications, the second coat should be applied in a perpendicular direction to the previous layer to ensure good bond and coverage.
To achieve a smooth finish, it is recommended to finish the surface with a trowel immediately after brushing the second coat. The total dry film thickness for both coats should be 2 mm.
All tools should be cleaned immediately after finishing using clean water. Hardened materials should be cleaned mechanically.
HEALTH & SAFETY
As Aquaproof 1K contains Portland cement, Aquaproof 1K may cause irritation to skin or eyes.
In case of accidental contact with eyes, immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 10 minutes and seek medical advise if necessary.
For further information refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet.
Aquaproof 1K is nonflammable
