REDGARD EPOXY DEEP PENETRATING SEALER (DPS) is a two-component clear epoxy coating especially formulated for waterproofing and concrete sealer applications. It has exceptionally low viscosity property that enables it to seep through concrete surface porosity providing an effective first line barrier against intrusion of water and other liquids. Its excellent adhesive, flexibility and chemical resistance properties will provide the user years of trouble-free protection.
As a standalone protective sealer for concrete and neutral mineral substrates such as bricks, natural stones, pavers, precast concrete and cement fiberboards.
As a waterproofing primer which is a vital part of Elastomeric waterproofing System for concrete gutters, roof decks, toilet & bath firewalls and other similar concrete structures. REDGARD DPS helps promotes adhesive of the waterproofing paint to the concrete substrates and penetrates deeply providing an effective first line barrier against intrusion of water.
- Avoid contact with skin and eyes, and avoid breathing its vapor.
- Work areas must be adequately ventilated.
- Keep containers properly closed and store in a cool dry place.
All existing dirt and other surface contaminants adhering on the surface must be thoroughly removed. Apply Concrete Neutralizer using sufficient coats to completely neutralize the surface. Do not wash off. When sufficiently dry, dust lightly to remove crystalline deposits.
MIXING & APPLICATION
Mix thoroughly by volume 1 part of resin to 1 part of hardener. Any change from the recommended proportion will affect its quality. Scrape the bottoms, sides and corners of the container to ensure complete and full blending. Prepare only enough quantities than can be used within the pot-life period. Do not delay application. Apply REDGARD DPS by brush or roller or by using an airless spray. Allow to cure overnight prior application of topcoat.
