Here's how to use Megaflex for cementitious waterproofing in basements:

  1. Surface Preparation

Before applying Megaflex, it's essential to prepare the surface properly. Make sure the concrete is structurally sound and free of oil, grease, paint, corrosion, dust, and surface deposits. You can do this by wire brushing, water jetting, or sandblasting. The substrate must be dry or slightly wet. Deep voids, cracks, and spalling must first be repaired. Consult with your local representative about our range of repair mortars.

  1. Mixing Instructions

Megaflex must be mixed mechanically. Pour the liquid part into a mixing container, then slowly add the powder component while stirring with a low-speed paddle drill. Add powder until the desired consistency is achieved. Mix for three minutes, ensuring the mixture is uniform, smooth with no lumps. A maximum of 200ml water can be added to adjust consistency.

  1. Application

Keep the substrate moist during application. Megaflex can be applied by trowel, roller, brush, or mechanical spray equipment. Apply at a maximum thickness of 1,5mm per coat. Make sure the coating is evenly distributed and free of bubbles or voids.

  1. Pot Life and Curing

Megaflex has a pot life of approximately 45 minutes at 25°C. Protect freshly placed coating against direct sunlight, heavy winds, and rain for 24 hours. Megaflex will cure slower in humid conditions.

By following these simple steps, you can use Megaflex for cementitious waterproofing in basements and ensure that your concrete surfaces are protected against water damage for years to come.

In conclusion, Megaflex is an excellent product for cementitious waterproofing, foundation waterproofing, concrete waterproofing, and basement waterproofing.
