Flexible Bitumen – Rubber Membrane

Download Data Sheet

Description

Estoflex GP is a one component rubberized bitumen emulsion sealing membrane. It is easy to apply, free of solvents and plasticizers compound. Estoflex GP is an elastic watertight membrane.

Estoflex GP has been tested by SIRIM BHD, in accordance to BS 1881 Part 122:1983, on Water Absorption Test and ASTM D 412, on Elongation & Tensile Strength Test, and complied with the specification in this data sheet.

Uses

Estoflex GP is designed for used as a damp proof membrane, vapour barrier, waterproof and protective coating. It is used in all cases where leaking and humidity are distressing the construction, waterproofing in civil engineering and building construction, such as:-

  • New R.C Roof & Re-roofing
  • Basements slab and wall
  • Ground water insulation / Wet rooms
  • Foundation / Bridge abutment or pier
  • Damp proof sandwich membrane in concrete floors
  • Vapour barrier to cladding panels
  • Repairing the cracks and crazing in asphalt surfaces <5mm.
    If otherwise, Estojoint or Estolastic sealant should be used
  • Retaining wall and tunnel

Advantages

  • Ready to use & easy to apply
  • Fast drying & waterproof
  • Free of solvents / Non flammable
  • Permanent flexibility
  • Not harmful to environment
  • Very good adhesion
  • Applicable on fresh concrete
  • Low water vapour permeable

Application Instructions

Preparation

Substrate shall be free of dust, grease and pre-wet with water before application.

All grooves, voids and honeycombs should be patched before the application of Estoflex GP.

Estoflex GP can be applied on damp surface with no standing water.

Application

(A) As a damp proof & protective coating

Estoflex GP shall be applied with brush, rubber squeegee or flat trowel.

The system is comprises of one priming coat (1 part water to 1 part of Estoflex GP) and two neat coats. The coating shall be dried before subsequent application.

(B) As a waterproofing and vapour proof system Base Screed (for R. C. flat roof)

Base screed with minimum gradient of 1:120, to receive Estoflex GP, shall be laid if the floor is uneven and without required gradient, to achieve better waterproofing performance.

Application of Estoflex GP Waterproofing System

Estoflex GP shall be applied with brush, rubber squeegee or flat trowel.

Firstly, apply one priming coat (1 part water to 1 part of Estoflex GP) at the rate of 3m2/litre.

First neat coat of Estoflex GP shall be applied at the rate of 1.5m2/litre, after the priming coat is dried. Whilst the neat coat is still wet, lay the Estop Fibreglass reinforce fabric and allowed to dry.

Second and third neat coat of Estoflex GP shall be applied at the same rate and allowed to dry.

(C) Heat reflective finish for non-traffic roof (optional)

Apply two coats of bitumen based aluminium / green colour paint at the rate of 8m2/litre/coat as a heat reflecting finish.

(D) Cement sand protective panel for trafficable roof (optional)

A layer of 35 – 50mm thick protective screed in panel form is recommended. The panel joints shall be filled with Estolastic sealant.

Panel size is recommended to be 1m x 1m. Reinforced with BRC is essential.
