Mapei Elastocolor Waterproof is an easy to use protective acrylic waterproof finish coat suitable for surfaces which are in permanent contact with water, such as flat roofs, water tanks and swimming pools.
Mapei Elastocolor Waterproof has been formulated for professional use as a water-resistant, flexible final finish coat to give added protection to surfaces against UV rays, rainwater, chemical attack and atmospheric agents in areas that are not subject to foot traffic. Elastocolor Waterproof will protect the internal surfaces of water tanks and swimming pools where the skimming layer needs to be covered with a compatible, flexible finishing coat. Mapei Elastocolor Waterproofing is not suitable as a waterproofing membrane under other products such as ceramic tiles or chlorinated rubber swimming pool paint. For best results apply Elastocolor Waterproofing onto a coat of Mapelastic Smart, see data sheets.
Mapei Elastocolor Waterproof is available in 6 standard colours or a range of colours using the Mapei ColorMap automatic colouring system.
Mapei Elastocolor Waterproof can be used on cementitious substrates, vertical and horizontal surfaces, flat roofs, special architectural elements such as domed roofs, water tanks, swimming pools or surfaces not subject to foot traffic. Recommended for use over surfaces waterproofed with Mapelastic, Mapelastic Smart, Triblock Finish and Mapecoat I 600 W.
Apply Elastocolor Waterproof diluted with 5-10% water on prepared surfaces using a paint brush or roller. Apply two or three coats allowing 24 hours between coats in normal temperature and humidity conditions. Spray application is possible on structures which are not immersed in water.
Please note that Elastocolor Waterproof is a finishing product applied in relatively thin coats (0.2-0.3 mm). If it is used in water tanks or swimming pools, therefore, bear in mind that it is not particularly resistant to high mechanical abrasion and may be damaged by equipment normally used for cleaning surfaces (robotic equipment, cleaning brushes, etc.). It is vital that the paint is allowed to dry for a minimum of 10 days before the pool is refilled.
Filling swimming pools and water tanks
Tanks may be filled at least 20 days after the 3 coats of paint have been applied providing the paint has dried under normal conditions of between 10 and 35 degrees C.
