Estop Sealproof

Crystallization Penetrating Aids and Waterproofing of Old or New Concrete System

Description

Estop Sealproof crystalline capillary waterproofing system is a product which contains a blend of selected inorganic crystals, penetrating aids and defoamers formulated for application by spray, roller or brush.

Estop Sealproof when applied to aged or green concrete penetrates deeply into the capillary pores of the concrete, reacts with free lime within the concrete to make a calcium silicate gel (CSH) that is insoluble.

Estop Sealproof stops water from either the positive or negative side of the concrete slab when the seepage is not caused by cracking or other structural flaws. In addition, Estop Sealproof also aids in abatement of dampness odors caused by bacteria in ground water or flood water.

Uses

Estop Sealproof is used for waterproofing new or  aged concrete against either positive or negative hydrostatic water pressure.

Estop Sealproof penetrates deeply (2–10 mm) into capillary voids and pores of the concrete and “crystallize” as part of the concrete. It is a concrete treatment and not a surfaces coating. It does not change the appearance of the concrete and it will not discolour or separate. Estop Sealproof works equally well on old or new concrete, above or below grade, and is intended for use on poured in place walls, preformed tilt-ups, bridges, road surfaces, pipes, basement walls, foundations, sidewalks and slab.

Advantages

  • Easily apply by spray, brush or roller to new or aged concrete.
  • Effective waterproofing system in sealing, hardening, and dust-proofing of concrete surfaces.
  • Can be applied to damp concrete with no standing water.
  • Penetrate deeply into capillary voids and pores and crystallize as part of concrete.
  • Estop Sealproof treatment is permanent and will raise surface pH.
  • Protect concrete surfaces from abrasion, freeze-thaw damage and chloride ion intrusion.
  • Cost effective way of waterproofing system.
  • Prevents efflorescence, which will improve the bonding of cementitious toppings, coating and paints.

Application Instruction

Surface Preparation

Surface must be able to absorb water, to be able to absorb Estop Sealproof. Surface may be wet, moist or dry, but not having puddles or running water.

Concrete surfaces must be clean, sound and free of oil, dirt, laitance and any other such contaminations  which  may interfere with the application process.

High pressure water jetting is the preferred method of surface preparation because mechanical cleaning, surfaces saturation and substrate roughing are simultaneously achieved.

Application

Wet the surface before applying Estop Sealproof to allow its penetration. Thoroughly mix Estop Sealproof before applying by airless sprayer, hand-pump-type garden sprayer, roller, brush or squeegee.

Agitate while applying to keep ingredients in suspension and from setting out. If Estop Sealproof puddles or beading is present, blow off with air, squeegee, and wipe up with cloth.

Do not allow any Estop Sealproof to dry on surfaces, as it will cure into a hard white crystal powder that requires power grinding to remove.

After application, flush the treated surface with plenty of water for curing and also to remove excess Estop Sealproof.

Curing and Additional Waterproofing System

Estop Sealproof will penetrate and form crystal gradually in pores and voids in concrete.

In some circumstances, where additional waterproofing membrane system, such as Estokote Flexi, Estoflex GP, Estoflex SM etc, were to apply on top of Estop Sealproof, allow the later to cure for at least seven (7) days, before proceed with the additional waterproofing system.

Limitation

Apply at temperatures between 27 – 35°C. Do not apply to glass, aluminium, porcelain, enamel, clay brick or other clay based products. Do not apply on painted surfaces.
