SEALMASTIC

SOLVENT DAMPPROOFINGS
Three dependable application grades to meet your specification requirements.

SEALTIGHT SEALMASTIC Dampproofing Coatings are available in 3 dependable application grades for spraying, brushing or troweling.

Technical Description
SEALMASTIC Solvent-Type Dampproofings are asbestos-free, fibered-asphalt compounds containing an exclusive wetting agent to convert a naturally hydrophobic surface to a hydrophilic surface to assure proper coating adhesion. Both the brush-on and trowel applied coatings are flexible and will span small holes and hairline cracks. All 3 grades withstand temperature changes and will not crack under normal expansion or contraction. The 3 types offered are:

SPRAY-MASTIC Dampproofing, a non-fibered asphalt compound for use where spray application is desired.

SEMI-MASTIC Dampproofing, a brush or spray-on fibered asphalt compound designed to protect exterior below-grade masonry walls.

TROWEL-MASTIC Dampproofing, a trowel-applied, heavy-bodied, fibered asphalt compoumd for exterior, below-grade masonry wall surface applications. It is recommended to protect porous or irregular surfaces.

All SEALMASTIC products meet the VOC content of 500 g/L for Bituminous Coatings and Mastics as required by U.S. EPA Architectural Coatings Rule.

Uses
SEALMASTIC Solvent Type Dampproofing Coatings are ideal for reducing dampness and moisture infiltration through foundation walls, footings, retaining walls, parapets, fire walls, tanks, culverts, cisterns and bridge abutments. They are also applicable for stone-backing, above-grade cavity wall applications and below-grade masonry wall dampproofing.

Maintain Energy Efficiency
SEALTIGHT Products applied for thermal and moisture protection help prevent moisture or vapor penetration into the other systems of the structure. These products play a key role in maintaining the structure's energy efficiency.

Application
MIXING: For Spray-Mastic or Semi-Mastic, stir the contents in the container thoroughly prior to applying with a soft bristle brush or suitable spray equipment. When applying Spray-On Dampproofings, use a Graco 9:1 ratio pump or equal, capable of delivering 3 to 5 gallons per minute (11.36 liters to 18.93 liters), and a Polegun with a 1/8" (3.18mm) to 1/4" (6.35mm) tip. A 3/4" I.D. (19.05mm) material hose and a 1/2" I.D. air hose from the pump to the gun is recommended for most applications. Apply SEALMASTIC Dampproofings to clean, dry surfaces at temperatures above 40F (4C). Apply in a continuous, unbroken film, free of pinholes and over any exposed footings, slots or grooves, etc.

NOTE: Fillers, extenders and additives in concrete mixes can produce a higher than normal porosity and as a result, additional coverage coats may be required.

SURFACE PREPARATION: All surfaces to be coated must be thoroughly cleaned of all scale, loose mortar, rust, dirt, oil, grease and other foreign matter. Use a wire brush, sandblast or other methods in keeping with good construction practices. Before product application, fill voids, cracks and holes in concrete with cement mortar and allow to dry. Dusty or porous masonry must be primed with asphalt primer and allowed to dry thoroughly before applying dampproofings.
Do not apply when the temperatures below 35F (2C) are anticipated. Do not apply in rain or when rain is threatening. For added protection against backfilling damage, install SEALTIGHT PROTECTION COURSE after the damproofing has dried. Backfill immediately. SEALMASTIC Damproofings should not be used in areas subjected to prolonged exposure to sunlight.

POROUS SURFACES, i.e. concrete block:

bulletFor moderate conditions, apply a heavy coating of cement mortar and one coat of SEALTIGHT SPRAY-MASTIC, SEMI-MASTIC or TROWEL-MASTIC 1/16" (1.59mm) wet film thick. For added protection, apply a second coat 1/16" (1.59mm) wet film thick.
bulletFor severe conditions or for added protection, wait 24 hours before applying a second coat 1/16" (1.59mm) wet film thick of SPRAY-MASTIC, SEMI-MASTIC or TROWEL-MASTIC. Within four hours of the last coat, press glass fabric into the mastic, overlapping each piece three to four inches. Allow 48 hours more before backfilling.

DENSE CONCRETE SURFACES:

bulletFor moderate conditions, generally 1 coat of SPRAY-MASTIC, SEMI-MASTIC or TROWEL-MASTIC 1/16" (1.59mm) wet film thick is recommended. If SPRAY-MASTIC is used, 2 coats are preferable. Allow 12 hours between coats.
bulletFor severe conditions, or for added protection, apply 2 coats of SPRAY-MASTIC, SEMI-MASTIC or TROWEL-MASTIC to a total thickness of 1/8" (3.18mm). If desired, glass fabric can be embedded in the first coat. Allow 24 hours before applying the second coat.
