Vodicolor Base

Coloured reflecting finish

Features

VODICOLOR BASE is a coloured protective water-base finishing product which has been formulated to ensure high covering power and an excellent adhesion to the surface thanks to the use of particular covering fillers and suitable synthetic resins.

 

Primary use

When the product is applied on cement supports and on plasters,it has a very effective protective function. VODICOLOR BASE is largely used as protective coloured filling material for prefabricated bituminous membranes instead of the painting products containing mainly aluminium pigments. VODICOLOR BASE offers an excellent resistance to acid rains, to aggressive atmosphere and to the sun's ultraviolet rays. VODICOLOR BASE's film is really adhesive and sufficiently flexible, to tolerate possible "movements" of the bituminous membrane on which it is applied. The resistance to foot traffic on the dried film is excellent. If it is used for the painting of outdoors and indoors walls it ensures high transpiration.
VODICOLOR BASE is also used to colour sports fields made up of cement or bituminous well-draining conglomerates.

 

Instructions for use

Clean the supports carefully by removing dust and crumbly parts. Possible big cracks should be repaired by means of grouts or adhesive water-cement mixed with VODILATEX. It is always better to apply a bed coat made by watering VODICOLOR BASE down by 15-20%. After the drying process, you can apply VODICOLOR BASE watered down by 5%. On prefabricated bituminous membranes it is better to apply the product with a maximum dilution of 10%. The applications may be carried out by means of a brush, roller or a trowel. The consumption varies from Kg. 0,200 to 0,250 per square metre.

Precautions

Remember not to apply VODICOLOR BASE when weather is bad if rain is expected within the next few hours or at temperatures below +5° C. These conditions should be ensured for at least 24 hours after application. Provide for suitable slope of the concrete in order to avoid prolonged water stagnation over the VODICOLOR BASE film. Keep the steel-cans in the original packaging. The product is sensitive to cold.
