Areas of Application

Building Roofs / Terraces – Flat & Slope

Over existing cementitious waterproofing treatments like brick-bat coba, Concrete Screeds, Acrylic Coatings, etc.

Features and Benefits

Water proofing – Tough & elastic films provides excellent W/p

Film thickness – Provides higher dry film thickness of 1 to 1.25 mm in three coat application

Crack bridging – Bridges cracks upto 2 mm width

Application Advantage – No need to remove existing BB coba, plaster, concrete surface

Strength - Higher tensile strength, tear resistance & bond strength with cementitious substrates

Resilience – Forms highly elastic & resilient coating so helps to withstand the structural movements

Durability – Resistant to uv & weather conditions

Abrasion Resistant – No additional protective coating is required for roof subjected to foot traffic

Ease of Application – Can by applied by brush & roller easily

Light Weight – Does not add extra weight over the roof

Non-toxic – Eco friendly

Breathability – It is Breathable

Method of Application

Surface Preparation

  • Prepare the surface thoroughly by cleaning, washing and removing dust, dirt, oil, grease and loose particles. Ensure that the roof slope is a minimum of 1 in 100
  • In existing old terraces such as brick-bat-coba or screeds, the substrate must be checked for its soundness. Damaged or hollow portions, sharp edges, etc. must be cut and repaired with a polymer-modified screed. Surface cracks must be filled with Dubond's acrylic crack filler
  • Bitumen based waterproofing treatments must be completely removed by mechanical scarification or by any other effective mechanical means

Application

  • Apply one coat of Dubond's Hydro Prime without any dilution at the rate of 10-12 m per litre. allow it to dry for 2-3 hours
  • Apply the first coat of Dubond's Roof shield at the rate of 2 m per litre and allow it to dry before taking up the second and third coats,the rate of application being the same
  • The sequence of colours viz-a-viz, green or terracota grey can be decided depending on the desired top coat colour
  • In case only two colours are being used, ensure that the colour of the first and the third coat are the same. this would ensure correct consumption of material that will deliver a total Dft of 1 mm
  • Drying time between coats will be 6 to 8 hours
  • Ensure that the primer and the 3 coats of Dubond's Roof Shield totally achieve a minimum thickness of 1 mm Dft. allow the system to air cure for 7 days minimum
