This is how it works:
Before applying the PROBAU Thick Coating , open joints must be closed. The substrate must be sound, surface-dry, absorbent, frost-free and free from dirt.
The site is wetted with a brush for better adhesion of the mortar.
For this, PROBAU Thick Bitumen Coating
is diluted 1:10 with water and applied with a brush to the entire surface of the area to be treated.
After the undercoat has dried (about 24 hours), start with the application of the thick coating.
To this end, the material is placed on the trowel.
Depending on the load, the coating must have a wet film thickness of at least 4 or 6 mm. The result is a seamless waterproofing layer.
After thorough drying of the thick coating, perimeter insulation boards are bonded to protect the seal.
Only then can the filling up of the work area commence.
Good to know: Surfaces must be pretreated before applying a seal. Seal joints in the masonry that are larger than 5 mm with a suitable mortar. Joints up to 5 mm in width and surface profiles of the stone can be equalised with a scratch coat using the thick coating. Important: In the case of accumulating seepage water, the seal must be implemented in two layers with a textile inlay.
