  • Very low VOC. Environment friendly 
  • Water based and can be used in confined and closed areas 
  • Excellent adhesion to concrete 
  • High abrasion resistance 
  • Excellent resistance to chloride and sulphates and wide range of chemicals
  • High UV resistance and durability to long term weathering effect 
  • Excellent waterproofing properties 
  • Dual advantage of protective coating and curing compound

Step by step

The application temperature should be between 5°C to 45°C. Application procedure may vary slightly depending upon site conditions. The general recommended for the application of the coating system is as follows:

SURFACE PREPARATION

The surface must be structurally sound and free of oil, grease, dust and other contaminants which will affect the bonding. Any structural cracks and potholes shall be repaired with a suitable mortar from the Polycrete* range of repair mortars.

PRIMING

For new concrete the coating can be applied directly and does not require any primer. Old and porous concrete surfaces require pre-saturation with water prior to application.

APPLICATION

Polyguard PE is a single component product, however, it is recommended to mix the contents of the pail thoroughly prior to application to remove any sediment which might have occurred during storage. The coating can be applied with a brush, roller or airless spray and shall be applied in a minimum of two coats. Apply the first coat at a coverage rate of 2.5 m2/L on the saturated surface and allow it to dry. Apply the second coat at the same coverage rate at right angle to the previous coat.

AS CURING COMPOUND

Immediately after removal of shutters from the freshly laid concrete, apply Polyguard PE as curing compound on the concrete surface by brush, roller or airless spray at the rate of 5m2/lt. However, prior to the application of the curing compound all traces of shuttering oil must be removed. If required apply a second coat at the same coverage rate and only after the first coat has dried completely. This will increase the curing efficiency of the compound in areas of high drying wind.
