ACP-50 (ANTI-CARBONATION COATING- WATER BASE)
Chemistik ACP – 50 is a special formulated high performance acrylic polymer coating. Carbonation is the process whereby atmospheric carbon dioxide reacts with various components in cured concrete. The carbonation process reduces the natural alkalinity of concrete. The high alkalinity of concrete creates a protective film on reinforcing steel, making it “passive” and protecting it from corrosion. When the carbonation front reaches the level of the reinforcing steel, it causes the steel to lose its passivity (immunity to corrosion) and corrosion of the reinforcing steel is possible, leading to delimitation and spalling of the concrete.
Chemistik ACP – 50 is formulated as a high performance protective cum decorative coating for concrete and other masonry substrates. Due to its anti-carbonation formulation and excellent waterproofing properties it is highly suitable for use on all types of structures, especially those in aggressive marine and coastal environments. Its white colour will reflect 60% of Suns Rays
CHEMISTIK ACP – 50 (Anti-Carbonation Coating Water Base ) is suitable for use on a wide range of substrates with varying service requirements exhaustive specification details cannot be readily given in this datasheet.
The product properties stated below are for Chemistik ACP – 50 (Anti-Carbonation Coating Water Base) system applied at the minimum
application rate as specified
METHOD OF APPLICATION
Stir the contents thoroughly. Apply one coat of CHEMISTIK ACP-50 on prepared surface. Allow to dry for 6 – 8 hours. Apply second coat as above. Every subsequent coat, if applied, should be at an interval of 8 hours between each coat and at 90⁰ angle to the first coat.
The surface to be treated should be clean, dry and moisture free. Cannot be applied on damp surfaces. Working areas should be well ventilated, Smoking should not be permitted during application. Do not apply on fresh concrete. Can be applied after 28 days of curing of concrete only.
Do not dilute as product will loose it quality.
It should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat and naked flames
- Incorporated with special fungicide and silicone resin for maximum resistance to micro- organism growth and ultra violet rays.
- Fast dry-shorten recoating time.
- Allows masonry to breath.
- Excellent colour retention.
- Smooth surface facilitates cleaning.
- Enhance aesthetic appearance.
- Anti carbonation property – excellent barrier to moisture, carbon dioxide, chloride ions, sulphates and oxygen.
- Heat Reflective in white colour.
- Reduces thermal load on the surfaces hence less movement.
- Reduces surface cracks.
Remove all existing treatment, if any .Clean the surface free of oils, grease, dust, loose particles etc. Clean the cracks and joints of dust, loose particles etc. Apply one coat of CHEMISTIK PRIME N SEAL on the surface . Allow to dry for 6 to 8 hours. Fill the visible cracks with CHEMISTIK ACRYSEAL by means of putty knife, spatula or fingers. Avoid formation of cavities, bubbles at the time of filling. Allow to dry for at least 24 hours. Observe the filling area after lapse of the said time. And if necessary refill the cracks to the level of the surface.
