Multithane 2P-A80 is a two part, elastomeric, heavy duty, trafficable, abrasion reistant, uv resistant, low VOC, polyurethane waterproofing membrane. Multithane 2P-A80 is formulated to provide a high tensile, puncture and tear resistant waterproofing membrane suitable for pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Multithane 2P-A80 is usually top coated with Multithane ATC A80 (aliphatic top coat), which is a tough, abrasion resistant, uv and colour stable top coat.
Multithane 2P-A80 is designed and formulated for use on:
Balconies, deck, podiums, terraces and concrete slabs.
Car park decks and ramps
Planters and landscape areas
Plant rooms and wash rooms
Laboratory and kitchen floors
Walk-ways, passage ways and pedestrian access areas.
Impact resistant internal flooring.
Note: For exposed areas, Multithane 2)-A80 must be top coated with Multithane ATC-A80.
Multithane 2P-A80 is suitable for use on most dry, sound and properly prepared and primed construction substrates such as:
Concrete and cementitious surfaces.
Block-work, brick-work and Hebel block.
Note: Surfaces must be dry or have a low moisture content (max. 5%), clean, free of dirt, friable matter, oils, grease, concrete release and curing agents, efflorescence and other contaminants.
The information contained in this product data sheet is typical but does not constitute a full specification as conditions and specific requirements may vary from project to project. The instructions should be considered as a minimum requirement but the applicator or contractor must use their skill, knowledge and experience to carry out additional works as may be necessary to meet the requirements of the project. Specification for specific projects should be sought from the Company in writing.
Multithane 2P-A80 is a two part system and must be correctly mixed using the correct proportions. Deviations may result in a reduction in pot life or the product remaining partially uncured.

Can be made non-slip.
Resistant to ponded water.
Tolerates a wide temperature range ( -30 C to 120 C)
Easy to apply
Precautions in Use
The product is not classifies as hazardous but good industrial practises and hygiene should be observed.
Impervious gloves, goggles (against splashes), coverall and boots should be worn.
Use in well ventilated areas. Avoid breathing in vapours.
Keep all sources of ignition away from uncured product.
Priming and Surface Preparation
Good preparation is essential. Surfaces must be sound, stable, dry, clean and free of dust, loose, flaking, friable material and substances that may diminish adhesion.
Surfaces must be sound, stable, dry, free of dirt, dust, friable material, grease, oils, release and curing agents and contaminants that may diminish adhesion. Mirror finished or glassy smooth concrete should lightly abraded or acid treated (then neutralised), flushed and allowed to dry. Prior coatings and membranes should be removed to provide a surface as described above.
Surface defects must be rectified.
Apply a coat of Primeseal SP at the rate of 7 sqm to 8 sqm per litre per coat. Highly porous areas may require an additional coat of primer.
Green or damp concrete and where there is a risk of water vapour transmission from out of the substrate apply two coats of Primeseal SP at the rate of 7 sqm to 8 sqm per litre per coat. Allow each coat to dry (2 hours) before applying the next coat.
Where detailed preparation work is required, priming should be confined just to those areas. Do not prime areas that cannot be membraned within 2 hours (best) or 24 hours (maximum). The membrane should be applied as soon as the final coat of primer is dry (2 hours from last priming coat) and within 24 hours.
Prime as required.
Apply an adequate flexible polyurethane sealant such as Resiflex FC33, in accordance the manufacture's instruction and tool off to form a solid, coved or 45 degree fillet extending at least 10mm on to the adjacent surfaces. Allow sealant to cure. Apply the liquid membrane directly over the cured sealant and on the adjacent surfaces.
Joins, Gaps and Cracks
Joins, gaps and cracks should be suitably filled and sealed with an appropriate elastomeric sealant, preferably a polyurethane sealant such as Resiflex FC33, and allowed to cure.
Recommendation: The movement of small cracks should not be underestimated and should be at least covered with a flexible polyurethane sealant or additional coats of membrane.
Where movement of the joint is expected, lay a bond breaker tape over the filled crack and apply a 150mm wide good coat of Multithane Std over the crack and then embed a suitable reinforcing fabric into the wet coat, followed by a saturating coat of Multithane Std. Allow to cure and apply a further coat of Multithane Std. The dry film thickness over these cracks should be at least 2mm.
Large or Live Cracks
Large cracks should be routed out to form a 'V' and then filled and sealed with a polyurethane waterproof joint sealant as per the manufacturer's instructions. The sealant should be finished slightly proud of the surface and allowed to cure.
Lay a bond breaker tape over the filled crack and apply a 150mm wide good coat of Multithane Std over the crack and then embed a suitable reinforcing fabric into the wet coat, followed by a saturating coat of Multithane Std. Allow to cure and apply a further coat of Multithane Std. The dry film thickness over these cracks should be at least 2mm.
Joins - Particularly in CFC Sheeting and Timber Sheeting
Ideally the sides of the sheets should be fully coated with a flexible polyurethane waterproof joint sealant prior to butting the sheets together.
If not, the joins should be suitably filled and sealed with an appropriate elastomeric, construction grade, polyurethane waterproof sealant such as Resiflex FC33 and finished flush with or preferably slightly proud of the surface and allowed to cure.
After priming as required, lay a strip of Leak-Seal Tape over the join, pressing it firmly on to the substrate. The liquid membrane is then as described under 'Large or Live Cracks'.
If the Leak-Seal is not used then follow the procedure as described under 'Large or Live Cracks'.
Waste Outlets, Penetrations and Angles
Waste Outlets: Floor wastes and puddle flanges should be rebated in to the floor to allow water to readily drain. Gaps and perimeters should be sealed with a polyurethane sealant.
Plastic or metal angles: Where required by the Building Code such as internal hobs and exterior door barriers and also plastic corner angels under wall boards, they should be securely embedded in to a continuous, gap free bed of a polyurethane sealant / mastic.
Given the pot life of the material, have all components ready. Before use, mix individual pails separately (avoiding aeration) with a clean and dry stirrer ensuring that there is no cross contamination between Parts A and Parts B.
Measure individual Parts A and Parts B components accurately in required proportion in to a separate clean and dry container and mix thoroughly with a machine stirrer (avoiding aeration) periodically scraping the bottom and sides of the container. Ideally, use the products in complete kits as supplied.
