PRO-TILER

Tile-Saver Protection for terraces

Description

PRO-TILER FONDO is a solvent-based compound based on oligomers and polymers capable of chemically reacting with mineral surfaces to make them water-repellent while leaving the colour and initial breathability unchanged.

PRO-TILER FONDO develops a long-term water-repellent and protective effect against the atmospheric agents and UV rays.

It is used as a primer prior to the application of PRO-TILER FINITURA.

PRO-TILER FINITURA is a ready-to-use, single component, colourless, fluid, fluorinated polymer in a solvent base. When the product is applied onto the absorbent building surface that has already been treated with PRO-TILER FONDO, it penetrates very quickly and dries to form an invisible protective film over the surface, thereby preventing water from penetrating while allowing vapour to pass.

The very high UV and dirt pick-up resistance of PRO-TILER FINITURA together with its capacity to bond to PRO-TILER FONDO gives the material a “velvety” appearance, which improves the aesthetic characteristics of the treated surfaces.

Application

Preliminary checks

The surface to be treated must be perfectly clean and dry. If there are any marks, stains or dark drips on the surface caused by the rain or moss, it is necessary to clean thoroughly by using a high-pressure water jet machine or using NORDECAL FORTE (or NORDECAL FORTE GEL) which must then be thoroughly rinsed off. It should be taken into account that an under-tile screed saturated with water could in some cases inhibit PRO-TILER cross-linking, thereby spoiling the in-depth waterproofing effects.

 

Products Application

  1. After washing the surface, aloe for it to dry.
  2. Apply PRO-TILER FONDO with a roller and wait 15-20 min. (until the solvent has evaporated from the tile) before applying the finish.
  3. Apply PRO-TILER FINITURA with a roller. After 5-10 minutes, using absorbent paper or rags, remove excess product not absorbed by the tile.

 

After application

A highly durable invisible film offering very high protection prevents water from penetrating below the tile without the tile breathability of the tile being affected, while ensuring a very much longer life for the terrace.

During the period after the treatment, when it rains it is normal for water to gather in large drops and have difficulty in sliding over the surface: this condition gradually changes and finally disappears without affecting the waterproofing efficiency.

 

Pedestrian traffic

the terrace may be walked on after 24 hours (in summer) - 48 hours (in winter).

Use normal mild floor detergents for cleaning the terrace.

Warning and informations

PRO-TILER FONDO

  • Do not apply when the temperature of either the environment or the substrate is below +5°C.
  • For best results avoid application during the hottest time of the day in summer.
  • Avoid applying the product if there is a risk of rain during the 24 hours subsequent to treatment.
  • The product is flammable. Protect respiratory tract, eyes and skin during application.
  • Read the Material Safety Data Sheet before use.

PRO-TILER FINITURA

  • Do not apply when the temperature of either the environment or the substrate is below +5°C.
  • If the storage temperature falls below 0°C, the product could become opalescent; in these circumstances the product does not give best results and cannot be applied without first having carried out the heating procedure described below:
    1. prepare a bain-marie of water at 40÷50°C (avoid exceeding this temperature) in a suitably sized container  so that when the can is put in, the water covers up to 2/3 of its height;
    2. leave the can in the water for approx. 5 minutes, then take it out and shake it well so that the compound is properly mixed;
    3. the product is now ready for use.
  • For best results avoid application during the hottest time of the day in summer.
  • Avoid rain falling on the product during the first day after application.
  • The product is flammable. Air the environment well during application and for another 12 hours. In the event of insufficient ventilation, protect the respiratory tract.
  • Protect eyes and skin during application.
  • Read the Material Safety Data Sheet before use.
Preservation

Keep in a dry place between +4 and +30°C. Stable for 12 months.
