DCL APPROVAL FOR COMBO (PU SPRAY FOAM INSULATION) ROOFING SYSTEM

INDO TEX UVpdf icon

Highly Elastomeric UV Resistant Acrylic Roof Protective Coating

DESCRIPTION
INDO TEX UV is a single component, highly elastomeric, acrylic waterproofing and protective coating with the very good solar reflective property.
INDO TEX UV upon curing forms a tough, flexible, and durable coating which is resistant to UV and other weathering agents.
INDO TEX UV is also used to protect exposed concrete structures against carbonation and chloride ion diffusion

TYPICAL USES
Used as waterproofing and protective coating for the following structures:

  • Sloped concrete roofs, metal profile roofs & asbestos roofs
  • Anti carbonation coating in car park decks
  • Protective coating on underpasses &concrete bridge decks
  • Protective coating on polyurethane foam insulation

ADVANTAGES

  • Single Component, Easy to Apply
  • Protects exposed concrete structures against Carbonation and ingress of atmospheric gases and salts
  • Excellent UV resistance with very good solar reflective property
  • Elastomeric ‐high crack bridging capability
  • Excellent adhesion to most of the substrates
  • Good resistance to dilute acids, alcohol, hydrocarbons, chloride and sulphate ions

APPLICATION INSTRUCTION
Application procedures may vary slightly depending upon site conditions. The general recommended guidelines for the application of the coating are as follows:
SURFACE PREPARATION
CONCRETE SURFACES
Clean the surfaces which shall receive the coating of all dust, dirt, moss, oil and grease, loose particles, cement laitance, and all other deleterious materials which will affect the adhesion of the coating with the substrate. Cracks and potholes shall be repaired with concrete repair mortar from the SPADREP* range.
METAL SURFACES
Clean the surface of all rust scales. This can be achieved by wire brushing or grit blasting.
PRIMING
BAUCOAT WP PLUS shall be diluted with 20% water and applied as a primer coat on the concrete surface to seal the pores and stabilize the surface.

The primer also functions as an adhesion promoter for the topcoats. This primer coat can be applied by a brush, roller, or airless spray and allowed to dry completely before the application of an acrylic coating.

MIXING & APPLICATION
Mix the contents of the drum prior to the application to remove any sediment.

INDO TEX UV can be applied by a soft-bristled brush, roller, or an airless spray.
When applying by airless spray then dilute the coating with approximately 5% water to reduce the viscosity of the coating.
Apply the first coat of undiluted material at a coverage rate of 1 lt. /2.5 m²/coat to get a Dry Film thickness of 0.5 mm.
It is important to ensure that each coat has to be cured totally before applying the next coat. The second coat should be applied at right angle to the first at the same coverage rate, to ensure a full unbroken coating to the substrate.
For improved strength and flexibility, embed a 65 g/m2 nonwoven geotextile membrane whilst the first coat is still wet on all corner joints, fillets, and pipe penetration joints.
Allow the coating to cure fully for 72 hours to achieve its full properties.
Caution: prolonged water stagnation will cause the coating to become soft and peel off. Adequate protective measures shall be taken
when applying in the water logging area
PACKAGING
INDO TEX UV is supplied in 20 Litres Pails and 200 Litres Drum.
COVERAGE
1 Ltr/ 2.5 m²/ coat for 0.5 mm Dry Film thickness. Two coats will give a combined
thickness of 1.0mm approximately.

STORAGE
Store under cover, out of direct sunlight, clear of the ground on pallets and protect from extreme temperatures. In tropical climate the product must be stored in air-conditioned environment (<25°C).
Shelf life is 12 months when stored as above.

PRECAUTIONS
As with all construction chemical products caution should always be exercised. Protective clothing such as gloves and goggles shall be worn.
Treat any splashes to the skin or eyes products be accidentally swallowed, do assistance immediately.
There are no known health hazards associated with INDO TEX UV.
Clean all the tools with water after use. Hardened materials can be removed mechanically only. Allow the waste to cure. Seal it into a suitable container and bury in landfill as per the local regulations.
