High Performance Rubberized Bitumen Emulsion Coating

SAB® Tex 2000:

Is an emulsified bituminous coating modified with a minimum 15% rubberized polymer content. This high-performance emulsion dries to form a tough and seamless, flexible water and vapor proof protective coating.

TYPICAL USES

Can be used for a wide variety of applications, which includes the following:

· Waterproofing & Protective Coating on concrete foundations.
· As dampproof membrane in general construction.
· Waterproofing in wet areas such as toilets, kitchens etc.
General vapor proof coating for both interior -exterior floors & walls.

ADVANTAGES
· Cold­ applied.
· Single ­component.
· Easy ­to ­apply.
· Can ­be ­applied ­on ­damp­ substrates.
· Asbestos­ free, ­odorless. ­Non-toxic, environmentally friendly.
· Can­ be­ applied in closed or ­confined spaces.
· ­Low ­VoC.
· Resistant­ against ­chloride­ and­ sulphate ions.
· Good­ adhesion ­to ­most ­building ­substrates.
· Seamless/joint ­free

AREA OF USE:

For waterproofing most building surfaces e.g. roofs, foundations, retaining
walls, swimming pools, planters, wet room floors, and water tanks etc.

PRIMING
It is highly recommended to apply a priming coat prior to the application of the
SAB® Tex 2000 coating on the substrate. The primer can be prepared in the site
by diluting SAB® Tex 2000 with 20% water and applying this diluted coat as the primer. For very dry and porous substrates apply two coats of this primer. The
primer can be applied to damp or freshly cast concrete surface also. However,
it should not be applied on waterlogged or flowing water areas.

APPLICATION RATE
The rate will depend on the porosity of the substrate. The following coverage
rates can be expected when the coating applied at different coverage rates:
2 - 3m²/L/coat.

PACKAGING

20kg pails & 200kg Drums

STORAGE
Store out of direct sunlight, clear of the ground on pallets.
Shelf life is 12 months when stored as above.

2. AREA OF USE : For waterproofing most building surfaces e.g. roofs, foundations, retaining walls, swimming pools, planters, wet room floors, and water tanks etc. PREPARATION OF SURFACE Application procedures may vary slightly depending upon site conditions. The general recommended guideline for the application of the bitumen coating system is as follows. The surface shall be cleaned thoroughly of all contaminants like dust, traces of curing compound, oil, grease. Light mechanical grinding/grit blasting/high pres sure water jet may be used to clean the surface of all the contaminants depending on the degree of contamination on the surface to be coated. All surface imperfections and protrusions shall be removed and repaired. Structurally unsound and friable concret e must be removed and repaired with a suitable concrete repair mortar. PRIMING It is highly recommended to apply a priming coat prior to the application of the SAB ® T ex 2000 coating on the substrate. The primer can be prepared in the site by diluting SAB ® T ex 2000 with 20% water and applying this diluted coat as the primer. For very dry and porous substrates apply two coats of this primer. The primer can be applied to damp or freshly cast concrete surface also. However, it should not be applied on wate rlogged or flowing water areas. APPLICATION AND CLEANING OF TOOLS Further coats shall be applied only after the primer coat dries off completely. In case of delay in application of the topcoat for more than 24 hours, a fresh coat of primer shall be re applied. Stir the contents of the drum thoroughly before application to remove all sediments. Depending on the dry film thickness required, apply the rubberized bitumen coating @2 – 3m²/L/coat. On vertical areas, it is recommended to apply the coating in multiple layers to avoid sagging of the heavy bodied coating. Subseque nt coats shall be applied only after the previous coat dries off completely and shall be applied at right angles to the previous coat. Clean dry sand may be broadcasted onto the wet coating to provide a key for the subsequent coats and achieve a greater d ry film thickness. Care shall be taken to ensure that the first coat is not punctured during the application of the second coat. However, if the coating is damaged, the area can be readily over coated provided the surface preparation is done properly.

3. Th e coating should be applied and finished up to the DpC level. If a plaster or cement render is to be applied on the bitumen coated surface, clean dry sand shall be broadcasted on to the coating whilst it is still wet. CURING Leave the coating for curing for a minimum period of 48 hours before applying any protection board or backfilling. Coating laid on horizontal surfaces can be protected either by a cement sand screed (50mm thick) or by an asphaltic protection board. Alternatively, a 1000 gauge polyth ene sheet can also be used for protecting the coating in areas where the backfill material is not very coarse. HEALTH AND SAFETY There are no known health hazards associated with SAB ® T ex 2000 in normal use. SAB ® T ex 2000 is a flammable liquid. Keep away from sources of ignition. Inhalation of vapor is harmful. Wear gloves and eye protection. Keep away from flame. APPLICATION RATE The rate will depend on the porosity of the substrate. The following coverage rates can be expected when the coating applied at different coverage rates: 2 - 3m²/L/coat . PACKAGING AND STORAGE PACKAGING 20 kg pails & 200 kg Drums STORAGE Store out of direct sunlight, clear of the ground on pallets. Shelf life is 12 months when stored as above. CLEANING Tools may be cleaned with water as long as the product is wet. Once dry, by mechanical means only. DISCLAIMER Use this leaflet as a guide for the use of the product concerned.
