- Reduces surface absorption
- Reduces permeability of concrete and mortar mixes
- Increases compressive strength
- Air entraining.- will not “flatten” the mix.
- Will not corrode steel reinforcement (Brick ties etc.)
- Improves workability
- Easier application in render mixes
- Low toxicity
Areas For Use
- Waterproofing below ground (basements etc.)
- Waterproofing above ground (mortar, render, screeds)
- Waterproofing the linings of water tanks/silage pits/ponds
- Do not use in structural concrete
NOTE: If you intend to overstain the wood once filled always choose the colour of filler that nearest matches the wood you are filling, not the stain you intend to use. This filler may dry to a slightly darker shade. As the filler may absorb some stains at different rates to the surrounding timber, always test a small area first. Before applying, ensure surfaces are clean, dry, sound and free from dust or any contaminants which may affect adhesion
In all cases, add to water at an addition rate of 0.5 to 1 litre per 100 kg cement, or alternatively, one part Integral Waterproofer to 20 to 40 parts water and mix until fully dispersed, then add to mix. Gauge the mix as stiff as possible to minimise risk of cracking.
Below Ground Work:
- Renders should be composed of 3 parts sharp sand (to BS1199) to 1 part cement by volume. Do not apply to weak backgrounds.
