SAHARA WATERPROOF MASONRY PATCH S5-17   5-1218

DESCRIPTION:

SAHARA WATERPROOF MASONRY PATCH is a durable hydraulic cement specifically formulated for preventing water seepage through concrete or masonry walls and floors. Even under pressure, it stops flowing water in seconds. It won't shrink or oxidize and it will last the life of the structure. Use it for plugging active leaks and patching cracks, honeycombs and other defects in concrete and masonry. It's ideal inside and out, in basements and sewers, and for grouting and sealing around pipes, conduits and bolts.

SURFACE PREPARATION:

Back to top

Surface must be clean and free from chalk, dirt, loose material and other contaminants that might interfere with sound adhesion. Remove all loose material and peeling paint with a wire brush. Grease, rust and other contaminants must be cleaned with a solution of TSP (Tri-Sodium Phosphate) or other detergent and water. With a chisel, cut out cracks a minimum of 3/4 inch wide and deep. Cut back or square off. Do not use "V" cuts. Use safety goggles. Flush away all loose material with water. For holes, honeycomb, tie holes, etc., remove all steel, wood and loose material. Cut back to a minimum depth of 1 inch. Under cut if possible.

MIXING:

Mix with clean water in a disposable container. Clean container between mixtures. Use just enough water to produce a putty consistency, approximately 4 parts Patch to one part water, and only enough that can be used in one minute. When mixing both material and water at 70° F., SAHARA WATERPROOF MASONRY PATCH will wet in 3 to 5 minutes. Cure times will be altered by temperature-higher temperature will shorten cure time and lower temperature will lengthen cure time.

APPLICATION:

Back to top

Cracks and Holes: Apply by forcing into crack or hole with maximum pressure. Do not trowel over surface. Finish with steel or rubber float. Keep damp for 15 minutes.

Junction of the Floor and Wall: Force material into crack with rounded tool and smooth out to form a cove.

Flowing water: For stopping water through concrete and masonry, mix up according to instructions but do not place material immediately. Hold in hand or trowel until SAHARA WATERPROOF MASONRY PATCH becomes slightly warm and setting begins to occur. Then, start at the top of the crack and force the material in. Hold in place until the material is completely set.

CLEAN UP:

Flush all tools and containers repeatedly during and after use with clean water. Not all tools and containers can be thoroughly cleaned.

COVERAGE:

17 cubic inches per pound.

DRYING TIME:

3 to 5 minutes depending on the amount and temperature of water and SAHARA WATERPROOF MASONRY PATCH. Drying time can speed up when the same mixing container is used repeatedly without proper cleanup.

LIMITATIONS AND PRECAUTIONS:

Do not place at temperatures below 40° F or if the temperature is expected to fall below 40° F in the next twenty-four hour period. Do not mix with water over 100° F.

Do not over mix or remix. Do not mix in original container
