Application

Preparation:

Surfaces must be free of cement laitance, as well as any residues of oil or grease from formwork release agents. The surface must free of excess material and aggregate. Cracks or crazing in the substrate must be repaired with a suitable mortar from the Mapegrout range.

Waterproofing:

First of all, prime the substrate. Dilute Plastimul with approximately 45-50% of water and mix until completely blended. Apply the primer by brush, roller or spray. Alternatively, prime the surface with Plastimul C diluted 1:10 with water, as indicated in the relative Technical Data Sheet. Then apply Plastimul in two layers, as follows:

First coat:

When the primer is completely dry, apply a coat of neat Plastimul at least 1.5 mm thick (wet thickness) with a trowel, brush or by spray.

Second coat:

Spread on a coat of neat Plastimul at least 1.5 mm thick (wet thickness) with a trowel or by spray. Please note that, to achieve performance levels in compliance with EN 15814 standards (see final performance details in the Technical Data table), at least two coats of product must be applied with a final dry thickness of at least 3 mm.

Description

A solvent-free paste consisting of selected water-emulsified bitumens, special fine-graded aggregates and additives. It is compatible with cement and sand in any mix ratio. Plastimul’s thixotropic consistency makes it easy to use for waterproofing vertical and sloping surfaces. It can also be used to waterproof masonry or concrete.


When completely dry, Plastimul forms a waterproof plastic film that is resistant to re-emulsifying after prolonged immersion in water, even when slightly acid or alkaline, and resistant to aggressive agents present in the soil.
