Application of Aquatron-6 allows the following:
How to use AQUATRON-6 waterproofing compound
1. Surface preparation
Prior to application of the compound, clean the surface from dirt, grease, paint, and other impurities in order to open the system of capillaries and micro cracks. Prior to application, clean the surface from dirt and sprinkle with water to full saturation (until no more moisture can be absorbed).
Prime the prepared surface with a compound (1 part of dry composition to 1 part of water) and wait for 5-10 minutes.
2. Preparation of waterproofing compound
Pour the compound in the amount necessary for preparation of mixture volume required for 45 minutes of work into container; thoroughly stir with water until you get a homogeneous mix.
3. Application of the compound
The base compound is applied to the surface with a brush, trowel or by shotcrete method with a consumption depending on the purpose. Aquatron-6 is an easy to use, durable, non-toxic during application and use material for waterproofing; it has no adverse health or environment effect, and is approved for use in contact with drinking water throughout the territory of the Customs Union.
The materials have a long shelf life (24 months from date of manufacture).
Features of penetrating waterproofing materials of AQUATRON series
AQUATRON formula has components optimized both chemically and physically. For example, because of special mechanical treatment, the sand contained in this material transforms from inert filler into an active component that increases adhesion with the protected surface and its durability.
Waterproof effect occurs due to the reaction between the components of the compound and components of the protected material that takes place within the structure of the construction material. The chemical components of Aquatron-6 penetrate deeply into the material through capillaries under osmotic (capillary) pressure.
Chemical reactions result in formation of insoluble needle-shaped crystals that fill the capillaries and shrinkage cracks, displacing water. This process occurs both down the water pressure trend and backwards.
The visual change in the structure of waterproofing compound in contact with the structure measured by an electronic microscope shows the penetration of the compound up to 150 mm in depth.
The higher the moisture content of the concrete structure is, the more effective is the penetration of active chemical components into the body of concrete.
AQUATRON-12 concentrated waterproofing compound is designed for waterproofing of monolithic concrete and reinforced concrete structures during concrete pouring.
