  • ALPHA WATER SEAL must be applied within 60 minutes of it being mixed. Apply ALPHA WATER SEAL in 2-3 cross layers of 1 mm thickness, with a brush or plastic paint roller brush or a trowel.    
  • When the first coating thickness and prior to its complete drying, apply the second coating cross-wise. If necessary, proceed to the prior wetting of the first coating.     
  • The final surface should be protected from frost and high temperatures for 48 hours with frequent rinsing and with the appropriate protective means.
  • When used for waterproofing swimming pools application is done with a trowel and is recommended to insert a mesh, to act as a reinforcement.    Note: Due to bonding strength of ALFA WATER SEAL, even on metals, it is recommended to wash work tools before the mortar sets.     

Substrates Preparation

  • The surfaces to be sealed must be mechanically cleaned, free from oil grease and loosely adhering particles.     
  • All surfaces must be free of cracks and flat as possible.    
  • For better adhesion saturate absorbent surfaces thoroughly with water to achieve a surface saturated dry condition.  

Preparing the mix    

  • Pour the material into clean water and mix with a low speed electric mixer until a homogeneous lump free paste is obtained, thick enough to stand on the brush or roller without dripping.      
  • Allow mixture settle for 5 minutes prior the application.    
  • Use the mixture when is still fresh. Do not leave the mix unmixed for a long time.
