BRUSHCOTE:

ACRYLIC MODIFIED WATERPROOF AND DECORATIVE COATING FOR POURED CONCRETE, PRECAST AND ANY MASONRY SURFACE.

 

PURPOSE:

BRUSHCOTE HAS BEEN FORMULATED TO SURFACE CONCRETE AND MASONRY STRUCTURES WITH A BRUSH OR SPRAY APPLIED (WITH THE CORRECT EQUIPMENT), WATERPROOF, DECORATIVE COATING.  PRODUCES A UNIFORM, FINISHED APPEARANCE ON MOST MASONRY SURFACES.  HOWEVER IN SOME CASES AN ADDITIONAL APPLICATION OF BRUSHCOTE SEALER MAY BE DESIRABLE.

 

BRUSHCOTE WILL FILL HOLES, CRACKS, IMPERFECTIONS, MOST ROUGH OR OTHERWISE DEFECTIVE AREAS IN CONCRETE STRUCTURES.  IT EFFECTIVELY SEALS CONCRETE MASONRY WALLS AND CEILINGS REGARDLESS OF SEVERITY OF SHRINKAGE CRACKS IN ,MORTAR OR SPONGINESS IN THE FACE OF THE BLOCK. 

 

BRUSHCOTE INORGANIC FILM WILL LAST INDEFINITELY ON EXTERIOR EXPOSURES. 

 

DESCRIPTION:

BRUSHCOTE IS A TWO-COMPONENT ACRYLIC POLYMER MODIFIED HYDRAULIC COATING WHICH IS SUPPLIED IN READY TO MIX UNITS.  NOTHING ELSE IS ADDED.  WHEN COMBINED IN THE PROPER PROPORTIONS, AN EASILY BRUSHABLE COATING IS PRODUCED.  WHEN APPLIED TO CONCRETE OR MASONRY, A UNIFORMLY COLORED, WATERPROOF SURFACE IS PRODUCED WHICH IS SELF-CURING.  THE ACRYLIC POLYMER RESIN PROVIDES BRUSHCOTE WITH EXCEPTIONAL ADHESION, RESILIENCE, FLEXIBILITY, TOUGHNESS, AND DURABILITY.

DIRECTIONS:

SURFACE MUST BE FREE OF OIL, GREASE, WAX AND DIRT.  SPALLED DEEPLY DISINTEGRATED CONCRETE SHOULD BE REMOVED TO SOUND CONCRETE AND PATCHED WITH VO-500 MANUFACTURED BY E.L.S. PRODUCTS CORP.

 

MIXING:

BRUSHCOTE IS SUPPLIED IN PRE-MEASURED UNITS AND SHOULD BE MIXED ON THE JOBSITE IN CLEAN CONTAINERS.  SLOWLY ADD THE POWDER TO LIQUID AND MIX, PREFERABLY WITH A PROPELLER AGITATOR ATTACHMENT TO A SLOW SPEED DRILL.  DO NOT MIX MORE THAN WHAT CAN BE USED IN 1 - 2 HOURS.  MIX THOROUGHLY AND KEEP MIXED DURING APPLICATION.  MIXING RATIO IS 2 GALLONS OF BRUSHCOTE LIQUID TO 1-50 LB BAG BRUSHCOTE POWDER. 

 

APPLICATION:

MORE EASILY APPLIED OVER DAMP SURFACES, ESPECIALLY IF SUN IS DIRECTLY ON SURFACE, APPLY BRUSHCOTE USING SHORT, STIFF BRISTLE BRUSH.  THE SURFACE MAY BE PRIMED BY LIGHTLY SPRAYING THE BRUSHCOTE LIQUID COMPONENT ON SURFACE OR SLIGHTLY DAMPENING WITH WATER.  A 5 TO 7 INCH WIDE BRUSH IS RECOMMENDED.  APPLY LIKE, PAINT, ONE OR TWO COATS AS CONDITIONS REQUIRE.  DO NOT APPLY AT TEMPERATURES BELOW 45 DEGREES.

 

CLEAN UP:

CLEAN EQUIPMENT WITH WATER IMMEDIATELY AFTER USE. 

 

COVERAGE:

ONE UNIT OF BRUSHCOTE CONTAINS SUFFICIENT MATERIAL TO COVER APPROXIMATELY 700 - 1250 SQ. FT.  DEPENDING ON THE SURFACE.  BRUSHCOTE SEALER - 250 -400 SQ. FT.  PER GALLON.

 

COLORS:

GRAY OR WHITE

 

PRECAUTIONS:

PROTECT FROM FREEZING DO NOT APPLY WHEN TEMPERATURE IS BELOW 45 DEGREES F. DO NOT WET CURE..
