A detailed description of the Izoplast R primer and mastic Izoplast B

In this article we take a closer look at the scope, technical characteristics and advantages of bitumen-rubber primer Izoplast R and bitumen-rubber mastic Izoplast B.

The distinctive feature of these emulsions is that they work best in tandem. And if to speak more precisely, the use of Izoplast R primer before applying mastic Izoplast B greatly enhances the adhesion of the Izoplast B to the base, as well as the order increases the waterproofing properties of the emulsion.

But back to what constitutes Izoplast R and Izoplast B separately.


Izoplast R - a bituminous primer for priming mineral surfaces, creating a thin coating. For protection of metal and wooden elements.


 

Izoplast R has the following advantages:

  • Resistance to weak acids and salts.
  • High penetrating ability.
  • High adhesion to the base.

The scope of Izoplast R:

  • For priming the base before applying waterproofing Izoplast B.
  • To provide protection against corrosion of metal constructions and elements.
  • To impregnate and protect wooden items (fences, poles, etc.)
  • To create a thin waterproofing layer.

Surface preparation:

Before applying you must clean the surface from dust, oil and other contaminants. Metal surfaces must be cleaned of rust, old paint and grease.

Method of application:

  • Before application carefully to mix.
  • Apply in one thin layer with priming of concrete surfaces.
  • In 2-3 layers when applied waterproofing.
  • 2 layers to protect the metal surfaces.

 

IZOPLAST R is applied with a roofing brush, roller, and brush with a stiff bristle brush or spray evenly on the surface of the coating. The next layer IZOPLAST R is applied after drying the previous layer. The approximate drying time of one layer is not more than 6 hours.

Consumption primer Izoplast R:

Consumption IZOPLAST R when applied to the concrete surface: the first layer of corrosion protection of metal surfaces ranging from 0.3 l/m2 to 0.6 /m2. For the second and subsequent layers when applying the corrosion protection of metallic surfaces consumption of primers is 0.2 l/m2 0.5 l/m2.

Transportation and storage:

Store in tightly closed original containers, inaccessible to children, protected from direct sunlight, sources of heat and ignition. May be transported by any mode of transport. Shelf life 12 months in unopened original packaging.

Caveats on the use of Izoplast R:
Work with IZOPLAST R to hold in calm weather without precipitation at ambient temperatures from 5 °C to 25 °C. When performing work, observe the safety rules when working with organic solvents, the use of efficient ventilation and mask with filter for organic vapours. Do not use IZOPLAST R inside residential and public buildings, and other facilities intended for permanent residence and finding people. Material must not come into direct contact with food or drinking water. The product is flammable. Irritating to eyes and skin. Vapours may cause drowsiness and dizziness. Do not breathe fumes. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Use only in well-ventilated areas.


Izoplast B - bitumastic black on the basis of organic solvent with special additives. Has high penetrating properties. To create a highly resistant waterproofing coating.


The Advantages Of Izoplast B:

  • Covers all the cracks in the base.
  • Used for roofing of any bias.
  • For industrial and residential construction.
  • Resistance to weak acids and salts.
  • Seamless waterproofing vertical and horizontal surfaces.

Applications:

  • Waterproofing of pipes, manholes, concrete rings, pumping stations.
  • Waterproofing of concrete bases / foundations, ties, fences, columns and supports.
  • Waterproofing with high resistance to aggressive environments.
  • Preservation and waterproofing.

Surface preparation:

Before applying you must clean the surface from dust, oil and other impurities. Metal surfaces must be cleaned of rust, old paint, grease, etc. Primed concrete surface primer solution IZOPLAST R and wait until it is completely dry.

Method of application Izoplast B:

Before use, mix thoroughly. Apply paste with a brush or roofing brush. To apply the following layer perpendicular to the previous one and only after it is completely dry. Waiting time before laying the second layer of waterproofing composition IZOPLAST B is about 8 hours.

Consumption:

When waterproofing of basements and other underground parts of the building: apply 2 to 3 layers on dry primed concrete surface depending on the anticipated water load. Estimated consumption IZOPLAST B in this case is from 0.8 kg/m2 to 1.2 kg/m2 per layer.

The restoration and construction of a seamless waterproofing of roofs: apply at least 2 layers of emulsion on the prepared base.

Transportation and storage:

Store in tightly closed original containers, inaccessible to children, protected from direct sunlight, sources of heat and ignition. May be transported by any mode of transport. Shelf life 12 months in unopened original packaging.

Cautions for use:

Work with IZOPLAST TO hold in calm weather without precipitation at ambient temperatures from 5 °C to 25 °C. When performing work, observe the safety rules when working with organic solvents, the use of efficient ventilation and mask with filter for organic vapours. Do not use IZOPLAST inside residential and public buildings, and other facilities intended for permanent residence and finding people. Material must not come into direct contact with food or drinking water. The product is flammable. Irritating to eyes and skin. Vapours may cause drowsiness and dizziness. Do not breathe fumes. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Use only in well-ventilated areas.


Based on the foregoing, we can safely conclude that bitumen-rubber mastic Izoplast R and Izoplast In are fairly high-tech products, which are indispensable for Foundation waterproofing and roofing works.

The combined use of primer Izoplast R and mastic In Izoplast, will provide a comprehensive waterproofing solution, and will greatly enhance the already impressive characteristics of each of these products.
