Availability: In stock

SKU: DF-SOSE-5

Dr. Fixit Solyseal is based on bituminous emulsion, polymer, and additives in water as a medium. It is a highly viscous dark brown coloured paste used for waterproofing of above ground & below ground concrete structures. After drying it forms a thick film, which bonds strongly to cementitious surfaces, forms a jointless or seamless waterproof membrane.


Areas of Application


* Flat and Sloping RCC roofs.


* Shallow basements rafts & walls with low water table


* Wet areas (bathrooms, toilets, kitchens etc.) / dry balconies


* Protection to lift pits and concrete foundations.


* Rust protection for galvanized roofs, metals & asbestos cement sheet roofing, etc. Features & Benefits


* Waterproofing - High film build up provides excellent water resistance


* Elastomeric - Excellent flexible properties can easily accommodate all normal building movements.


* Seamless - Can be applied to complex shapes to form a seamless and highly durable water proofing membrane. * Chemical Resistant - Provides effective protection against alcohol, salt solution, and mild acid / alkali.


* Adhesion - Adheres firmly to most of building surfaces including concrete, felt, brick, metal, etc. both horizontal or vertical surfaces.


* Water vapor Transmission - Very low impermeability ensuring water tight for all substrates.


* Water based – Easy cleaning of tools and brushes by water.


* Easy to apply - Suitable consistency for easy application by brush.

Description

Method of Application

1 SURFACE PREPARATION

* Surface to be applied must be free from dust, loose material, paint, oil, or any other material which may impair adhesion

* Mechanical means for surface preparation are strongly suggested. Finally vacuum cleaning of all loose solids and liquids must be done, if required

* All surface cracks up to 5 mm wide should be filled up with Dr. Fixit Crack- X. Cracks more than 5 mm and all separation gaps should be filled up with Dr. Fixit Pidicrete URP modified mortar

* Triangular fillets of prepared with sand -cement mortar, mixed with Pidicrete URP(6kg per 50 kg bag of cement), must be applied 5 cm in ht & 5 cm in base. This fillet must be provided at all junctions / corners of parapet walls, roof floor slabs, thresholds around pipe openings and column stubs, around intrusions, water tanks/ AC unit bases, etc.

2 PRIMING

* The surface must be pre-wetted with water & brought to a touch- dry state

* Then mix Dr. Fixit Solyseal with water in 1:1 ratio & apply this as a primer with brush/roller to the entire substrate. Use a stiff brush to ensure that the primer is applied well into the undulations & holes in the substrate. Let the primer dry up completely before the first coat of Dr. Fixit Solyseal 

 3 APPLICATION

3.1 Under brickbat coba in flat roofs

* Stir well Dr. Fixit Solyseal cotainer before use and apply by brush or rubber float. At least two coats are recommended, at 0.9 litre/ m2/ coat

* Start applying the first coat of Dr. Fixit Solyseal Immediately place an open woven glass fibre mesh of 2 mm x 2 mm or PE based spun bound fabric of 40 gsm on wet surface.

* Allow this fabric to soak completely in the first coat itself and allow it to dry. Ensure that the fabric is completely saturated with first coat of Dr. Fixit Solyseal. Coverage of Dr. Fixit Solyseal must be 0.9 ltr / sq m. The fabric must be extended over the angle fillet in this application.

* Now apply the second coat of Dr. Fixit Solyseal at the same rate of 0.9 litre/ m2 in a direction perpendicular to the first and allow the membrane to dry.

* Within first 48 to 72 hours, take up the application of brick bat coba. Before doing so, a geotextile membrane of 250 gsm must be laid over the entire Dr. Fixit Solyseal membrane to prevent it from damage

* The brick bat coba mix of cement & sand must be admixed with Dr. Fixit Pidiproof LW+, an integral waterproofing compound at 200 ml/ 50 kg cement and allow curing properly with water in accordance with good curing practices 3.2 Application of Dr. Fixit Solyseal on flat RCC roofs, without brick bat coba

* Primer a must – refer to the Clause no 2

* After priming, apply 2 coats Dr. Fixit Solyseal at 0.9 litre/ sq.m / coat, and allow drying completely for 6-8 hours.

* As detailed above, sandwich a layer of a open-woven glass fibre or polyester mesh of 40 gsm or PE Spun bonded fabric * Application of Dr. Fixit Solyseal membrane shall be extended over the coving and up to 300 mm height on the parapet wall

* After Dr. Fixit Solyseal is dry, spread a geotextile fabric of 100 gsm over it, if a concrete screed is being laid * Protect the coating with oxidized bituminous aluminum paint, or with a concrete screed in M 20 grade.

* Two days after the application of screed, provide control joints along the length and breadth of entire screed area. The joint can be provided by using a saw cutting machine attached with a 3 mm blade. The joints will be 5 mm wide and 15 mm deep. 28-30 days later, these joints can be filled with a suitable elastomeric sealant

3.3 Application of Dr Fixit Solyseal over sloping roofs

* Primer a must – refer to the Clause no 2

* After priming, apply 2 coats Dr. Fixit Solyseal at 0.9 litre/ sq.m / coat, and allow drying completely for 6-8 hours.

* As detailed above, sandwich a layer of a open-woven glass fibre or polyester mesh of 40 gsm or PE Spun bonded fabric

* After Dr. Fixit Solyseal is dry, spread a geotextile fabric of 100 gsm over it, and carry out further activities as per the specifications and drawings.

3.4 Application of Dr Fixit Solyseal in wet areas (bathrooms, toilets, kitchens etc.) / dry balconies

1.Primer a must – refer the Clause no 2

2.After priming, apply first coat of Dr. Fixit Solyseal at 0.9 litre/ sq.m / coat.

3.Apply the second coat as soon as the first coat is dry. Sandwich a fabric (as detailed above) only over the angle fillets and around pipe insert during the application of Dr. Fixit Solyseal in wet areas.

4.Apply second coat perpendicular to the previous coat.

* Protect the coating with a concrete screed in M20 grade. 3 Coatings & Paints 617 Dr. Fixit Solyseal 4 Application in shallow basements

RAFT

* Over a properly surface prepared substrate PCC/ blinding concrete first apply a primer coat prepared with Dr. Fixit Solyseal and water mixed in 1:1 proportion

* After the primer dries apply the first coat of Dr. Fixit Solyseal at 0.9 litre/ sq.m. and allow drying completely for 6-8 hours

* Now apply the second coat of Dr. Fixit Solyseal at the same rate, in a direction perpendicular to the first and allow the membrane to air cure

* Sandwich the 2 coats with a open-woven fibre mesh, as detailed above. Protect the coating with a 50 mm thick concrete screed admixed with Dr. Fixit Pidiproof LW+, an integral waterproofing compound at 200 ml/ 50 kg cement and allow curing properly

* Lay the screed over a geotextile membrane of 250 gsm specification, to avoid damage to the Dr. Fixit Solyseal membrane * Construction of RC raft can then be done over the screed BASEMENT WALL

* Prime the basement walls with Dr. Fixit Solyseal diluted with water in 1:1 ratio

* Apply the first coat of Dr. Fixit Solyseal at 0.9 litre/ sq.m. and allow it to dry completely for 6-8 hours
