Hydrostop-PU Polyurethane waterproofer choice for flat roofs!

DUROSTICK's polyurethane roof waterproofer - the top choice for moderately stressed terraces!


Brushable elastomeric waterproofer that combines water soluble polyurethane resins modified with specific acrylic dispersions. Apply the product to create a seamless membrane without joints, that is impervious to water and provides excellent roof protection. Certified by the University of Athens (Department of Physics, Division of Applied Physics), as ‘Cool’ material of low thermal conductivity and high reflectivity in the visible spectrum at a rate of 93%. It reduces the energy related costs for heating and cooling and significantly improves the energy efficiency of buildings. During the summer months it reduces the interior temperatures of the spaces below the roof surface. During the winter months it presents zero water absorption and maintains the roof surface dry.

Classified as product for surface protection of concrete surfaces per EN 1504-2.


ADVANTAGES
• Does not require strengthening with reinforcing fiberglass mesh or any other material.
• Easily applied using a paint roller, a painting or waterproofing (emulsion) brush, as well as an airless spray gun.
• Seals minor cracks and ‘prevents’ them from reappearing.
• Excellent resistance to frost, standing water and sunlight.
• It is not affected by UV radiation (no chalking).
• Excellent resistance to the formation of mold and algae.
• Resists the corrosive gases of the atmosphere, as well as chlorides, carbon dioxide and sulfur oxides.
• Water vapour permeable.
• Walkable, without sticking.
• Does not create any bubbles.
• Does not saponify.
• Excellent resistance to extreme weather conditions, from -25°C up to +80°C.
• Its final surface prevents mudrain and other pollutants to adhere, thus maintaining its whiteness and its reflectivity long-term.

USE
1. Preparation of new surfaces
Using a roofing scraper or a wide chisel, remove all deteriorated sections, if any. Continue by using a hard, street type, broom. If any moss, lichen or grease stains are present, remove them by using D-95 CLEANER of DUROSTICK, or a bleach-water solution at a dilution ratio of 1:1. Scrub the surface thoroughly and rinse with plenty of clean water. Surfaces to be waterproofed must be dry and should not get wet for the next 48 hours, in order to avoid surface moisture from being trapped.

2. Preparation of surfaces coated with waterproofing product(s):

  • Detached torch-down roofing materials: Remove them using a wide roofing scraper and roofing torch or other mechanical means.
  • Well adhered existing torch-down roofing materials, only require to thoroughly remove all the dust from their surface and to seal any detached sections.
  • Detached or deteriorated elastomeric waterproofers, have to be removed using a wide roofing scraper or a razor blade.
  • Detached elastomeric materials that are not visible, can be found using a garden hose. Pour water on the roof surface from about 1 meter high and listen carefully. Notice the change of the sound the water makes when it hits the detached parts of the waterproofing and mark them. Cut the detached sections using a razor blade, a scraper or other mechanical means. Scrape the defective material off.

3. Application
Using a roller and a brush, prime the surface using the water soluble, micromolar stabilizer AQUAFIX or the SOLVENT BASED PRIMER diluted 50% with THINNER 101 of DUROSTICK. Alternatively, dilute the product by adding 30% water and prime the entire surface. Once the primer has been absorbed into the surface and is completely dry, it is possible for some hairline cracks to become visible. Treat those cracks by applying several coats of HYDROSTOP-PU, until they are completely sealed. Each new coat is applied once the previous one is dry. Seal wider cracks (≥ 1mm) using the elastomeric sealant DS POLYMER or by using the polyurethane elastomeric sealant DUROFLEX-PU of DUROSTICK. Once the sealant is dry, apply 2 or 3 coats of the polyurethane waterproofer HYDROSTOP-PU over the sealed cracks.

Complete the waterproofing process by coating the entire area with 2-3 crosswise coats, to cover any minor substrate imperfections. Apply each coat 6-18 hours after the previous one was applied (depending on ambient conditions) or once the previous coat has completely cured and it is walkable.


Αpart from the roofs, protect the wall surfaces as well with thw waterproofing elastomeric paint D-80 HYDROSTOP ELASTIC. It covers capillaries and micro-cracks and is particularly resistant to abrupt temperature changes,intense sunshine, constant moisture and frost.

 

How much material will I need?

  • Mimum consumption 0, 75lt to 1, 2lt in 2 coats, depending on the substrate.
  • 1, 2lt to 1, 5lt in 3 layers, depending on the substrate (long-lasting protection)


HELPFUL TIPS - NOTES

  • Mix well before use.
  • Waterproof all vertical surfaces around the roof (parapet walls), their entire height.
  • Avoid exceeding thicknesses of 0.5mm per coat. • Low ambient temperatures delay the final curing time while high ambient temperatures speed up the curing process.
  • Avoid applying the product in high humidity conditions or when there is possibility of rain within the next 24 hours.
  • After curing, the product is harmless to health and the environment.
