EP LASTIK

Two component waterproofing flexible mortar

Description

EP LASTIK is a two-components water-based flexible mortar consisting of:

  • component A: concrete ready mix;
  • component B: aqueous dispersion of polymers and additives.

 

EP LASTIK may be applied on both horizontal and vertical surfaces and after curing forms a totally waterproof film with a good elasticity level.

The resulting layer is resistant to attack by thawing or de-icing salts, sulphates and chlorides and protects the substrate against carbon dioxide.

Usage field

EP LASTIK is used for:

  • waterproofing bathrooms, showers, balconies, terraces, swimming pools, etc. prior to tiling;
  • waterproofing of concrete water storage tanks or cisterns;
  • waterproofing of counterscarp walls or underground concrete walling units;
  • the flexible coating of concrete structures, in particular when they have an inadequate concrete cover to the reinforcement;
  • protecting cracked plaster or concrete against the penetration of water and aggressive agents;
  • protecting road and rail viaducts;
  • protecting concrete surfaces that could come into contact with seawater and solutions of thawing or de-icing salts.

Application

Preparation of the substrate

Take normal professional care by thoroughly cleaning all substrates in a workmanlike manner and removing loose parts, oil, grease, paint and anything that could prevent correct adhesion of the product.

Special preparations

1.Balconies and terraces:

  • treat the angle fillets and joints as described in the instructions for use of BETONGUAINA and BETONGUAINA.S; seal the cracks with NORPHEN RICRETE;
  • alter the pitch or slope (if necessary) with GROVE MASSETTO and GROVE PRIMER;
  • abrade the surface of tiles with BOSCH GBR 14 CA grinder, or wash with NORDECAL FORTE. Wet absorbent surfaces with water.

2.Concrete structures:

  • remove any cement laitance by specific abrasion; wash with water under pressure; damaged surfaces must be scarified and made good with products from the CONCRETE REPAIR range;
  • wet absorbent surfaces with water.

3.Plasters:

  • leave to cure for 1 or 2 weeks according to the thickness; if necessary consolidate with NORPHEN SW SOLID diluted 8-10 times in water and wait 2 days;
  • wet absorbent surfaces with water.


Preparation of the mix:

  • pour EP LASTIK comp. B into a suitable working container and add EP LASTIK comp. A while stirring continuously; mix thoroughly using a low speed mixer (500÷600 rpm);
  • mix until a smooth lump-free mix is obtained.

 

Product application

EP LASTIK may be applied with a trowel or by mechanical means.

With a trowel, apply a first thin render onto the substrate (wetted if necessary); then apply a second coat wet on wet to obtain a total thickness of at least 2 mm.

If the product is being applied to balconies, terraces, swimming pools, tanks, etc. or to areas subjected to particular stress, insert fibreglass mesh reinforcement (4 x 4.5 mm mesh) RETE DI VETRO 160 between the render and flush second skim coat; wait for the first layer to set before applying a second final coat of product.

By mechanical means, use a spraying machine with skim coat nozzle, taking care not to exceed a thickness of 2 mm per coat.

It is almost always preferable in soffit areas to insert mesh reinforcement since these areas are subject to particular stress: after laying the mesh, go over with a smooth sleeker and apply a second final coat.

Warning and informations
  • Do not apply onto substrates that are too warm due to a high summer temperature: in this case wet the substrate with water to lower the temperature and apply if possible in the afternoon.
  • Do not apply onto surfaces that are frozen or could freeze within 24 hours after application.
  • Do not apply with a single coat thickness exceeding 2 mm.
  • Wait for approx. one week before tiling over the product.
  • Apply at a temperature between +5 and +35°C.
  • Foot traffic: 24÷36 hours.
  • Complete curing under normal conditions: 7 days.
  • The product is not dangerous: a safety sheet is, however, available.

 

Preservation
