and Surface Preparation
preparation is essential. Surfaces must be sound, stable, dry, clean and free
of dust, loose, flaking, friable material and substances that may diminish
Surfaces should be suitably primed with Primeseal applied at no less than 1
litre per 4 m2 and allowed to dry. Primeseal must be used for
roof areas, timber and particle board surfaces, bitumen or where there is
a risk of evaporation of entrapped moisture in the substrate which may cause
the membrane to bubble. Alternative primers such as Multiseal may be used
in non-exposed porous areas and where the moisture content of the surface is
very low, applied at 3 to 4 litres per m2.
Metal surfaces must be clean and free of contaminants and then metal etch
primed. If rusted, treat to remove rust, apply a rust converter and then metal
etch prime. Excessively porous, friable and dusty surfaces may require an
additional priming coat. Allow primers to dry or fully cure before applying the
membrane and please refer to the product data sheets of the stated primers.
Prime as required.
Apply an adequate flexible polyurethane sealant, 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
to cure. Apply membrane directly over the sealant and on the adjacent surfaces.
For Additional waterproofing protection the following additional steps should
Lay a strip of Wrimco Seal Tape (self-stick, butyl mastic
waterproofing membrane with a polyester backed reinforcing fabric) over the
cured polyurethane sealant (as described above) pressing it firmly on the
surface. Apply the membrane directly over the tape and on the adjacent
Joins, gaps and Cracks
Joins, gaps and cracks should be suitably filled and sealed with an appropriate
elastomeric sealant, preferably a polyurethane sealant, 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.
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. After priming, as required, lay a strip of Leak-Seal Tape over the join
or crack pressing it firmly on to the substrate. Membrane is then applied
directly to the Wrimco Seal Tape and extending at least 75mm on to
the adjacent surfaces.
the Wrimco Seal Tape is not used then a suitable bond breaker tape
(such as duct tape) at least 48mm wide should be laid over the join or crack
and apply a fully reinforced membrane consisting of a base coat of membrane in
to which the reinforcing fabric is embedded, a saturating coat of membrane
ensuring that the fabric is entirely saturated and covered and then allowed to
cure. At least one or two further coats are applied as per membrane's
Product Data Sheet extending at least 75mm on to the adjacent surfaces.
- 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 polyurethane waterproof sealant and finished flush with or
preferably slightly proud of the surface and allowed to cure.
After priming, as required, lay a strip of Wrimco Seal Tape over
the join, pressing it firmly on to the substrate. Membrane is then applied as
described under 'Large or Live Cracks'.
the Wrimco Seal Tape is not used then follow the procedure as
described under 'Large or Live Cracks'.
Outlets, Penetrations and Angles
Waste Outlets: Floor wastes and puddle flanges should be rebated in to the
floor to allow water to readily drain. Fill all gaps and perimeters with a
polyurethane joint 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.
Std by brush, roller, broom and squeegee in a minimum of two coats,
usually a day apart so that the minimum dry film thickness in 1.2mm. Where no
primer is used, an additional coat of Multithane Std is recommended.
The minimum wet coat thickness per coat is 0.5mm.
In areas such as corners and over joins and cracks the membrane should be used
in conjunction with a reinforcing fabric (fibreglass matting). This
application consists of applying a base coat in to which the reinforcing fabric
is laid followed by the application of a saturating coat ensuring that the
product is worked well in to the fabric and that no wrinkles or bubbles are
present and that fabric is entirely saturated and covered with product. Allow
to cure. Apply one or two further coats of products.
stated average coverage rate may vary depending upon type, condition, porosity,
texture of the surface and application technique.
Std: Generally, 1.5 to 1.6 litres per sq.m. for two coats combined, i.e. 0.75
to 0.80 litres per sq.m. per coat. Average 15 pail usage approximates
10m2. Ensure that the dry film thickness of the cured membrane is at least 1mm.
Minimum thickness per coat is 0.5mm.
Primers: Generally 4 sq.m. per litre per coat (refer above).
Colour may lighten after application.
and curing of the product is affected by type, dryness and porosity of the
surface, temperature, humidity, ventilation, climate conditions and application
technique and therefore drying and curing can only be given as a guide.
Std is weather resistant within 8 to 12 hours with full cure within 24
in cool, dry place away from heat, flame or combustible material. Product
contains flammable solvents. Class 3 dangerous goods must be declared prior to
transportation. Available in 5 Lt and 15 Lt pails.
Self life: 6 - 12 months in unopened container but best used within 6 months.
As this is a polyurethane some skinning of the product may occur. This should
be cut out and removed. Balance of the product will be suitable for use.
spills. They are difficult to clean particularly off porous surfaces. Wet
spills use a cloth and Solvent. Do not clean off carpets as it is better to
allow product to cure and then shave the carpet. Equipment should be
immediately cleaned with Solvent.
Topping or Top Coating
be covered, topped with sand: cement mix, covered with geo-textile and pebbles
or tiled. If membrane is to be tiled, dry builder's sand should be liberally
and fully broadcast into the last wet coat to provide a mechanical key. Allow
to cure then remove any loose sand. Ensure surface is dry and clean. Two pack,
flexible tile adhesives are recommended. Acrylic bonding agents can be used in
sand: cement mixes for better strength and adhesion. When tiling, it is
essential that adequate expansion joints are installed in accordance with good
tiling practice and AS3958.1-1991.
solvent based. The use of solvent resistant gloves and goggles (against
splashes) are recommended. If spraying, which is very rare, the use of self
contained breathing apparatus is recommended. If swallowed do not induce
vomiting, give plenty of water to drink. Seek urgent medical advice. If in
eyes, flush thoroughly with clean water, holding lid open to ensure any trapped
product may be flushed away. Seek medical assistance. If on skin, remove
contaminated clothing and wash skin with soap and water. This may not remove
the product but will encourage it to cure and can later be peeled off. If
inhaled, unlikely due to viscosity of the product, remove person to fresh air
and apply artificial respiration if required and seek urgent medical attention.
Product is flammable when wet. Keep away from all sources of ignition. Ensure
adequate ventilation. Vapours may collect in low lying areas.
