Elasto Shield by SureCrete, is a concrete waterproofing liquid which needs no catalyst or solvents, as it is a waterborne system. No special safety equipment or respirators are required (unless sprayed). The lack of an enzyme eliminates pot-life problems. The single component formulation could be used by brush, roller, or airless sprayer to many construction substrates.
Although specifically created for SureCrete coatings, Elasto‐Shield™ is also ideally suited for use with ceramic tile, stone, and EFIS applications. It forms a continuous waterproofing barrier with outstanding adhesion and reduces crack transmission in floors. Elasto‐Shield provides excellent flexibility and elongation with water-proof properties that allow the span of cracks and voids in the substrate. Upon cure, the membrane will not soften with high temperatures or become brittle with low temperature. Before product cures, clean-up is achieved just with soap and water. Quick dry times between coats reduce job time.
How Do You Apply SureCrete Elasto Shield concrete waterproofing elastomeric membrane?
Next to comparable products on the market, Elasto-Shield Concrete Waterproofing is slightly simpler to use.
- Make sure your surface is clean and free of all debris and old paints and coatings.
- If your surface is especially porous, keeping the surface misted will help make application easier.
- The product is easily rolled on with a 3/4″ nap roller.
- Joints and splices should be treated with a stitch bond fabric after the first coat of Elasto-Shield and then treated with a second coat of Elasto-Shield.
