Waterproof Fish Pond Rubber Membrane:


Liquid Membrane Pondseal
 
 
Pondseal Fish Pond Membrane is a water-based polyurethane/acrylic co-polymer, which when fully cured, forms an impervious, flexible and aesthetically pleasing waterproofing membrane which enhances the look of the pond or water feature. It is non-toxic and formulated to be suitable for use with fish and plants. Being liquid applied, Pondseal conforms to any shape and provides seamless 'paint-on' pond liner in a variety of colours.

Uses

 

Pondseal is used for the waterproofing of ponds, water features, bird baths, fountains, wine barrels for plants and terracotta pots.
 

Suitable Surfaces

 

It is suitable for use on the following sound, stable and properly primed surfaces:

Concrete
Cement
Cement Rendered concrete, brickwork and blockwork
Water resistant timber (particle board is excluded)
Brick and block work
Masonry Surfaces.
 

Specification

 

The information contained in this data sheet is general in nature and refers only to the usual use of the product and it should not be construed to be a complete specification. Site conditions vary which may require the use of the products and related products to vary. For specific projects a written specification should be sought from the Company.

Limitations

The structure must be dry to allow the product to properly cure. If the structure is subject to rising dampness, continual dampness or negative hydrostatic pressure, the product should not be used.

Suitable for use with fish and plants.

It is a urethane acrylic co-polymer providing a strong, touch and flexible waterproofing membrane.

Does not re-emulsify after proper curing.

Quick curing.

Easy to apply.

Virtually odourless.

UV resistant.

Easily recoatable or repairable.

 

Precautions in Use

 

The product is considered safe if used correctly as intended and proper industrial hygiene and practices are used. Always observe safety precautions.

Priming and Preparation

Good preparation is essential. Surfaces must be sound, stable, dry, clean and free of loose, flaking, friable material, dust and substances that may diminish adhesion. Surfaces should be dry, sound, stable, free of gaps, dirt, dust, algae, fungus and other contaminants.


Construction


When constructing water retaining structures, 2 ply plastic sheeting should be laid on the ground prior to the laying of the concrete slab. If the structure is below ground the plastic sheeting should be turned up between the walls and the ground. This prevents rising damp and allows the structure to properly dry, which is essential.
The structure should be solid, stable, gap free and ideally have coved corners.


CRACKS, JOINTS, GAPS AND AROUND PENETRATIONS


These must be filled, sealed and waterproofed with a suitably flexible, polyurethane joint sealant finishing flush with the surface. The joints must not move beyond the capability of the membrane.
Apply a suitably flexible, polyurethane joint sealant to all right angled corners and tool off to form a thick fillet. If walls are constructed of brick or block work the fillet should extend and cover the first rung of mortar. Allow to cure.


Priming


Prime all surfaces with Primeseal MC applied at 3 to 4 sq.m. per litre per coat. Excessively porous or friable surface should receive at least two priming coats. Timber surfaces must be primed with at least 2 coats of Primeseal MC applied at 3 to 4 sq.m. per litre per coat.


Primeseal MC may be applied to slightly damp surfaces but the surface must become dry in order for the products to dry. Damp surfaces will increase the drying time and although possible it is not recommended.

When in doubt apply a second coat of Primeseal MC as this will enhance the waterproof quality of the system.

Allow primers to fully dry before applying Pondeal.

Application

 

Stir well. Apply by brush or roller in coats of about 500 microns to 750 microns (0.5 to 0.75mm thick).
Apply a minimum of two coats of Pondseal. Perform correctly the dry film thickness of the membrane must be at least 1.2 mm. Each coat must be fully cured before applying the next.

RIGHT ANGLED CORNERS


Apply about a 750 micron thick and 200m wide coat of Fish Pond Sealer and embed Polyester reinforcing fabric in to the wet coat. Apply a similar saturating coat over the fabric, working the wet coat well in to the fabric ensuring that it is entirely saturated, covered and free of wrinkles and bubbles. Allow to dry. Apply one or two further coats so that a thick dry film of membrane covers the fabric. Each coat must be fully cured before applying the next. Allow the system to fully cure before filling with water. Prematurely filling can cause bubbling, blistering or re-emulsification of the membrane. The membrane will not be waterproof until it has fully cured.

FLUSHING


Before filling with fish or plants, hose down the surface, flush the water, re-fill and treat or age the water as required.

Coverage

 

The stated average coverage rate may vary depending upon type, condition, porosity, texture of the surface and application technique.

 

Unreinforced: Minimum 1.5 litres per sq.m., i.e 0.75 litres per sq.m. per coat. A 15 litre pail will cover about 10 sq.m. with 2 coats being applied.
Reinforced: Minimum: 2.0 litres per sq.m.

 

Colours

 

Pondseal is available in Midnight blue and Black (two most popular colours). Special colours are available upon request but minimum quantities will apply).
Available in 4 and 15 litres pails.

 

Drying and Curing

 

Drying and curing of the product is affected by type, dryness and porosity of the surface, temperature, humidity, ventilation, climate conditions and application technique. Therefore drying and curing can only be given as a guide. It is a fast drying water based product.


Expected curing at 25oC at 50% RH:
Touch dry 4 hours per coat
Set 12 hours
Full cure 48 to 168 hours (4 to 7 days).
Protect from rain and inclement weather until fully cured. If product is damaged by rain prior to curing, drain water, remove uncured or damaged coating, allow to dry, clean (see preparation), ideally re-prime then re-coat as described in application.
Cold, damp and high humid conditions will prolong curing.

 

Storage

 

Store in a cool, dry area. Product is not flammable. Do not allow to freeze.
Shelf life is 6 to 12 months.

 

Clean Up


Wet spills can be cleaned with water, but spills should be avoided as they are difficult to remove from porous surfaces.

 

Tiling, Topping or Top Coating

 

Usually not tiled or topped but Fish Pond Sealer is compatible with most tile adhesives and 3:1 sand:cement beds. Ideally the beds should be sealed/waterproofed to prevent the bed absorbing and holding water.

 

Selection of the tile adhesive should be compatible with the flexibility of the substrate and suitable for immersion in water. Two pack adhesive systems are preferred. Tiling must be done in accordance with AS3958.1-1991 and adequate expansions joints installed.


Safety & Precautions

 

Pondseal is user friendly and safe to use if used correctly as intended. Nevertheless, protect eyes and skin and observe the safety precautions on the can and data sheet. The use of splash goggles and rubber gloves is recommended.

 

We recommend that the coated surfaces be thoroughly flushed with clean water and drained. Ensure water is suitably aged and treated before introducing fish or plants.

Tensile Bond: 2N/mm after 14 days

Application temperature range: 10 to 35oC

Moisture Vapour Transmission: 0.26 g/sq.m./24 hours
