Aquaseal Liquid Roof is a one component All Weather roofing paint that waterproofs any flat or pitched roof in just 10 minutes. It is a moisture curing product that uses atmospheric moisture to trigger the curing process, which means that no catalyst is required and it is fast curing.
Aquaseal Liquid Roof is a 2 coat application and is fully rain resitant within 10 mintues of applcation and the product will still cure if there is a pool of water on top of it.
Sika Everbuild Aquaseal Liquid Roof is an easy to use, all weather roofing sysem ideal for waterproofing any flat or pitched roofs. Creating a solid waterproof membrane covering the entire surface area without any seams, Liquid Roof is a polyurethane based, cold applied, ready to use product ideal for use on roof areas for new projects, extensions or to refurbish an existing, leaky roof with excellent adhesion to both porous and non-porous substrates.
Aquaseal should be applied at a thickness of 1mm per coat and a minimum of 2 coats should be applied meaning that a 7Kg tin of Aquaseal will theoretically cover between 3,5 and 5 m2 on an average flat roof.
It is recommended that fiberglass is used around details such as soil stacks and roof lights, also a strip of fibreglass 100mm wide should be used to bridge any joints in the roof deck.
Aquaseal can be applied to bricks, blocks and mortar joints that are sound and preferably flush pointed. For slates, tiles, etc. ensure all slates/tiles are sound and securely fastened, replacing obviously broken or missing sections. Asphalt contains volatiles which can cause bleeding and slight non-detrimental staining. The asphalt must be carefully assessed for moisture and/or air entrapment, grade and surface finish prior to any coating works being carried out.
When applying to Bituminous felt ensure that bituminous felt is firmly adhered or mechanically fixed to the substrate. Bituminous felt should not contain any badly degraded areas. Single ply membranes must be correctly laid and securely fixed/adhered. Badly cracked or brittle membranes should be removed. Application of Aquaseal onto bituminous coatings should not have sticky or mobile surfaces, volatile mastic coatings, or old coal tar coatings. Metals must be in sound condition and rust free before application.
