    ADVANTAGES

    • Can be applied to freshly hardened concrete.
    • Excellent elongation and flexibility.
    • Exhibits crack bridging and sealing property.
    • Protection against carbonation and chlorides.
    • Excellent for damp proofing basements.
    • Excellent adhesion.
    • Easy to apply.
    • Increased frost and salt resistance

    SURFACE PREPARATION 

    Surface should be cleaned and sound, free from dust, loose particles, grease, oil, primers, from Previous membrane systems or bitumen. Bitumen or primers should be removed by shot blasting or mechanical means. Spalled concrete should be repaired by cutting to sound Concrete and patching with Polymer modified mortars. There are a variety of repairing mortars and crack fillers available in Ressichem Patch and Crack Heal range for the repairing of a variety of different surfaces. It is recommended to use polymer coated tape (Construction Grade) at all critical areas such as intersections, corner joints, floor/wall junctions, gaps, peripheral areas, or pipelines before the application of Water Guard 3020N. Prior to fixing the polymer coated tape, gaps and corners should be filled and leveled with an appropriate polymer modified Grout from the Ressichem range of products.

    APPLICATION 

    Saturate the concrete surface with clean water. Apply the first coat while the surface is still damp with no free-standing water. Apply using a short stiff bristle brush or roller at a minimum thickness of 1 mm per coat. After 2-3 hours, apply the second coat in perpendicular direction to the first coat (If the first coat has been applied in top to bottom direction, the second coat should be applied in left to right direction and vice versa). Spray or trowel application is acceptable provided the mixing ratio is adjusted to achieve the right consistency. It is recommended that for application over hollow blocks or highly porous areas, a minimum of 3 coats to total thickness of 3 mm be applied.

    CURING

    Water Guard 3020 N should be protected from high wind, direct sunshine, and rain until fully cured. Keep the treated area moist for 3-4 days after application

    SHELF LIFE

    Expiration of Water Guard 3020N is 12 months after production date under dry and sheltered conditions

    PACKAGING

    Water Guard 3020N is available in 15 KG and 20 KG Buckets

    HEALTH & SAFETY

    Water Guard 3020N is not regarded as hazardous for transportation. Do not reuse the packaging and dispose them off as per local rules and regulations. Gloves and suitable masks can be worn during application. Please refer to the MSDS of the product for further health and safety information.
