MasterSeal 588 - An elastomeric, cement based waterproof coating for concrete and masonry
How does MasterSeal 588 work?
MasterSeal 588 powder is a blend of Portland
cements, selected silica sands and modifying
agents. When mixed to a slurry consistency with
MasterSeal 588 liquid, an acrylic polymer
emulsion, it can be easily applied by brush or
roller. It cures to give an elastomeric flexible
MasterSeal 588 must be reinforced with mesh
across all construction joints and cracks. The
reinforcing mesh may be either 100% virgin
polypropylene or an alkali resistant glass-fibre
mesh depending on which particular enhanced
tensile properties are required, please consult your
local Technical Service Representative for
further advice on the correct selection of mesh.
What is MasterSeal 588 used for?
- For waterproofing of water-retaining structures
which may be subject to movement.
- To protect concrete from water, carbonation
and deicing salts.
- Suitable for internal and external use, against
positive and negative water pressure.
- Suitable for use in wet area waterproofing
where tiles are to be installed directly on top of
the membrane using a proprietary tile
- Can be applied to damp substrates.
- Thin layer application.
- Equipment to be cleaned simply with water.
- For waterproofing of swimming pools.
