Dekguard Elastic

Crack accommodating elastomeric, pigmented acrylic, chloride ion and carbonation protective coating for concrete and masonry.

Typical Applications

  • Suitable for use on all types of structures including those in coastal environments, especially where there is a danger of subsequent cracks appearing within the substrate

Advantages

  • Can accommodate substrate cracking up to 6mm and cyclic movement up to 1mm
  • True elastomeric coating with excellent elongation and recovery properties which are maintained at sub-zero temperatures
  • Excellent barrier to carbon dioxide, chloride ions, oxygen and water
  • Carbon dioxide diffusion resistance AS/NZS 4548.5 1999 : Equivalent Thickness of air (R): > 150 metres
  • Carbon dioxide diffusion resistance AS/NZS 4548.5 1999 (1) : CO2 diffusion coefficient: 3.8x10-07 cm²/sec
  • Carbon dioxide diffusion resistance AS/NZS 4548.5 1999 (2) : Equivalent thickness of 30 MPa concrete cover (Sc): > 380 mm
  • Elongation at break : > 400% (ASTM D412)
  • Fire testing Spread of flame : Class 1 (BS 476, Pt 7: 1987)
  • Service temperature : Vapour diffusion coefficient: 1.3x10-04 cm²/sec
  • Typical hardness Shore 'A' (ASTM D2240) : Equivalent thickness of air (Sd): <1m
  • Volume solids : 0.49
  • Water transmission resistance AS/NZS 4548.5 1999 : 14g/24hr/m²/KPa (AS/NZS 4548.5-1999)
  • Water vapour transmission resistance AS/NZS 4548.5 1999 : Vapour transmission rate: 40.4g/m²/24hr
