ABAFLEX-FCW

HIGHLY FLEXIBLE CEMENTITIOUS WATERPROOFING MEMBRANE FOR HORIZONTAL & VERTICAL SURFACES

DESCRIPTION

A two part acrylic polymer modified highly flexible cementitious waterproof membrane supplied in pre-packaged form for the protection of concrete and mortar.ABAFLEX-FCW provides excellent adhesion, flexibility, crack bridging ability, and durability.

APPLICATION

Saturate the concrete’s surface with clean water. Apply the first coat while the surface is still damp but no free standing water. Apply using a short stiff bristle brush, rubber squeegee or roller at a rate of 1-2 mm. for walls and floors, depending on the expected water pressure. The required thickness is achieved by applying 2 layers, taking care that each layer is not thicker than 1mm. Leave the first coat to dry for 2-4 hours before applying the second coat. The second coat can be rubbed down with a soft dry sponge. Spray or trowel application is acceptable providing the mixing ratio is adjusted to achieve the right consistency. Leave the second coat of ABAFLEX-FCW to cure overnight before proceeding to conduct water ponding test.

ADVANTAGES

  • Resists strong hydrostatic pressure (tested against strong water pressure head both positive and negative)
  • Solvent free and non-toxic - Environmentally friendly
  • Protection against carbonation and chlorides
  • Excellent adhesion. Full bonded
  • Bridges cracks on positive water pressure side applications
  • Minimum surface preparation needed. No priming is necessary in most cases.
  • Stands up to pedestrian and light traffic
  • Resists abrasion, mechanical wear & deicing salts
  • Applied to moist/damp substrates. (Also it can be applied to 24 hour old concrete.)
  • Approved for use in contact with potable water
  • Breathable (not a vapor barrier)
  • Does not support the growth of mold & mildew
  • UV resistant 

 

 

 

 

FIELD OF APPLICATION

Coatings made of ABAFLEX-FCW are wear-proof, elastic and waterproof. Such coatings can be used for areas subject to mechanical stresses and for areas which might be subject to cracking, e.g. waterproofing layers on terraces and balconies, as protection for concrete surfaces which can be walked on, as waterproofing for water tanks, swimming pools, underground concrete structures, pits, basins, wet and damp-rooms underneath tiles and ceramic coverings.
