POWER-CEM is a highly technological cement mantle made of selected fluidifying resins in aqueous dispersion and with the simple addition of cement 32.5 constitutes a mixture of incomparable resistance.
POWER-CEM represents the absolute leading product among waterproofing systems.
After maturation, POWER-CEM presents a complete impermeability to water, resistance to any temperature, to sunlight, to freeze-thaw cycles, it also has an exceptional elasticity, resistance to permanent water stagnation.
It can be applied on flat roofs, terraces, balconies, solar slabs, hanging gardens, perimeter walls, foundation walls, floors, bathtubs, swimming pools and is particularly suitable for deteriorated grounds with cracks up to 5 mm (compulsory percolation and glass mesh).
WHAT IT’S FOR
POWER CEM is used to waterproof any roofing surfaces such as practicable terraces, roofs, balconies, flower pots, waterproof surfaces with old sheaths or bituminous products, perimeter walls, north facing walls and gutters; it can also be applied as a waterproofing substrate in flooring works.
METHOD OF USE
- SURFACE PREPARATION
Once the treatment has been completed, the surfaces to be waterproofed must have a sufficient gradient to guarantee water flow.
The support must be compact and flat, in the absence of such conditions, adequate preparation of the same should be provided.
1-Surfaces already paved: Check the perfect adhesion to the bottom of the tiles that must also be dry and perfectly clean (remove the presence of oils and grease with special detergent for difficult dirt MAXXXI and for dirt from lime and cement use lime and cement dissolver STRONG instead).
2 – Surfaces with cement screeds, vertical plastered, old and / or new: Before waterproofing, it is necessary to remove and rebuild deteriorated screeds with vertical mortars and they must be dried and aged (for new screeds it will take at least 28 days to complete curing, furthermore the residual humidity must be less than 4 % by weight to be determined by a professional hygrometer).
Some covers must include the insertion of breather elements for the escape of water vapor.
3-Surfaces already waterproofed with sheaths or bituminous products: They must be perfectly clean and free of dust; repair any laceration, tearing or detachment using bituminous products.
Check the condition of any expansion joints and if they have deteriorated proceed with their reopening, cleaning and reconstruction.
Once cleaning and drying are complete, start the treatment of the vertical surfaces by cutting the fiberglass mesh (FIBRANET 160) to a height of about 30 cm then apply the POWER GRIP primer and let the net adhere to it by 5 cm on the horizontal surface.
Spread FIBRANET 160 on the horizontal surface, spreading and overlapping from the net prepared at the vertical corners. Then pour POWER GRIP on the net itself by using a water pull and steel spatula making sure to distribute it evenly.
Wait for the complete drying (approx. 2-3 hours) in order to apply POWER CEM.
- PRODUCT PREPARATION
Add 32.5 cement directly to POWER CEM container (5 kg for the 15 kg package and 1.5 kg for the 4.5 kg package).
Mix for a few minutes with a mixer with impeller until a homogeneous lump-free mixture is obtained (3% of water can be added during the hot season).
The product can be applied by roller, spatula, brush or airless pump.
Spread a first coat of product, apply a second coat after drying (approx. 3-4 hours) if necessary proceed with a third coat to cover the entire reinforcement.
For old flooring in sheaths or bituminous products the specific adhesion promoter is our NTX-PRIMER. Apply NTX-PRIMER on the surface ready for waterproofing and once it has dried, proceed to spread the fiberglass mesh and apply POWER CEM by incorporating the mesh itself.
The applied product shall not have a thickness less than 1, 5-2 mm.
