  • Description
  • Product Scope
  • Application Guide
  • Data Sheet
  • Bitumen emulsion paint (prevents vapour transmission only)

    Polycoat is an emulsified thixotropic bitumen protective coating. The coating dries to form a black flexible protective film. The finished film forms a tough barrier to vapor transmission.

    Properties

    • Resists the attack of salts like chlorides and sulphates that are present in the soil
    • Easy to apply
    • Cold applied
    • Adheres to concrete, metal, wood, cork, etc.
    • Can be applied in closed or confined spaces
    • Water-based
    • Non- flammable
    • Anti-fungal

  • Recommended use

    Polycoat is used for providing damproofing for below ground concrete structures which are above the water table. This can also be used as the protective coating for built-up roofing systems and other exposed surfaces. The coating is also used as a moisture vapor barrier on block works and concrete surfaces prior to cladding.

  • Step by Step

    Surface Preparation
    The surface shall be cleaned thoroughly of all contaminants like dust, traces of curing compound, oil and grease. All surface imperfections, protrusions, structurally unsound and friable concrete must be removed and repaired.

    Priming
    Primer is always recommended prior to coating as it not only penetrates into the concrete pores and seals the substrate. It also acts as an adhesion promoter for further coatings. The primer coat can be made in the site by diluting the same bitumen emulsion with 20% water. The primer may be applied by a brush, roller or airless spray. Allow the primer to dry before any further coats are applied. However, if the primer after application is left open for more than 24 hours after it becomes dry, clean the surface of any settled dust and apply a fresh coat of the primer.

    Application
    Stir the contents of the drum thoroughly prior to application to remove any sediment. The application can be done with a roller, brush or airless spray. Apply the coating at a coverage rate of 1-4 m2/L/coat, depending on the dry film thickness required. For highly demanding situations, it is recommended to apply in multiple coats. Further coats shall be applied only after the previous coat dries off completely. However, the coverage depends on the smoothness and porosity of the substrate and the required thickness of the coating.

    Coverage
    Average dry film thickness of 125microns achieved when applied @4m2/L/coats, at required number of coats
