ELASTOLAC is a cold applied elastomeric varnish consisting of bitumen, elastomers, solvents and special additives. It is the proper product to use for the waterproofing and protection of surfaces, existing waterproofing system and also as a primer for new waterproofing applications with bituminous membranes.
The film that is formed after the application and drying out of ELASTOLAC retains its elasticity in the course of time and exhibits exceptionally good resistance to temperature fluctuations, expansions-contractions etc It is not affected by thin acids and alkalis solutions and various corrosive chemical substances. It does not resist to oils.
ELASTOLAC can be applied to many substrates such as concrete, stone, metal or wood. It is compatible with polyurethane but not with polystyrene.
It is recommended for the waterproofing of roofs, walls, foundations, .for the anticorrosion protection of metallic surfaces ,for the repairing of old bituminous coatings and as an adhesive of thermal insulation materials .
It is used as a waterproofing material and also as a primer for the application of bituminous membranes.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
The surface must be smooth, clean and dry, free from dust, oils and grease.
ELASTOLAC must be stirred well before usage
ELASTOLAC is cold applied by brush, roller or spray gun.
For the application of bituminous waterproofing membranes only one layer of ELASTOLAC is sufficient. The recommended dilution is up to 30% with an organic solvent. The application of the membrane onto the primed substrate can start only after the evaporation of the solvent(at least 24 h) and the dry film formation.
For the waterproofing of surfaces the application of at least two coats provided that the first layer is completely dry is recommended.
The application of one thick layer of ELASTOLAC must be avoided.
When the surface waterproofed with ELASTOLAC is exposed to direct sun radiation it must be protected with bituminous aluminium paint ALUCOAT to extend its life span and avoid premature ageing.
It is used at a consumption of 0.3 -0.6 kg/m² depending on the porosity and smoothness of the surface.
It can be achieved by means of gasoline, oil, or other appropriate solvent.
ELASTOLAC is flammable therefore it should be kept away from any sources of ignition. For more information, please consult the relevant Material Safety Data Sheet.
The product should be kept in firmly closed cans, in a cool and well ventilated environment. The properties of the product remain unchangeable for at least one year in normal storage conditions.
The product is supplied in cans of 1 kg and 19 kg.
