Zinsser Watertite - Lx Mold Mildew-Proof Waterproofing Paint
Rust-Oleum Watertite LX Mold & Mildew Proof Waterproofing Paint is specially designed to protect your home from the damaging effects of water and wind driven rain. The technologically advanced formula forms an impermeable barrier to water on interior or exterior, vertical or horizontal concrete block. This is an excellent paint to stops moisture from walls, basements and roofs. This waterproof paint can be used for reflecting pools, planters, fountains, retaining walls and more.
Features of Watertite Waterproofing Paint
- Excellent coverage.
- Fast drying.
- Latex, oil and epoxies can be top coated.
- Suitable for interior and exterior.
- Prevent mold and mildew
NOTE:Read and follow the directions carefully for best results.
How to Apply Zinsser Proof Waterproofing Paint?
Surfaces must be clean, dry and sound, and free of dirt, efflorescence, mold, algae, sandy mortar or any material that could compromise coating adhesion. New concrete must be cured for at least 7 days prior to coating. Test cast concrete for the presence of form sealers or release agents by sprinkling with water. If the surface turns dark with the water, WaterTite LX can be applied. If not, the surface must be chemically cleaned or mechanically abraded to remove release agents.
Soundness of Surface - Surface of concrete and mortar joints must be hard and firm - not loose or sandy. The surface is unsound if it can be scraped or gouged with a flat screw driver using moderate pressure. Unsound mortar or deteriorated concrete should be removed and repaired prior to coating. Cracks and joints must be sealed with WaterTite Hydraulic (15minute dry time) and/or WaterTite Polyurethane Sealant (72 hour cure) or equivalent products. When waterproofing exterior, above grade walls, parapet walls must be capped and the backside sealed with a flexible waterproofing membrane.
Mix thoroughly to ensure any settled pigment is re-dispersed before application. DO NOT THIN. Apply only when air, material, and surfaces temperatures are between 50-90°F (10-32°C) and the relative humidity is or less than 85%. Apply two or three coats, depending on the surface and job requirements to form a continuous pin-hole free coating. Apply the first coat using a high quality synthetic brush or ¾” nap roller. WaterTite LX can be spray applied with an airless sprayer or conventional sprayer. Follow manufacturer’s application instructions. If using a roller, back brush the first coat to work the coating into the concrete pores. It is more important to work the first coat into the surface than for it to hide the substrate. The second coat can be rolled or brushed on. For very porous or rough surfaces, a third coat may be required if pin-holes are evident.
