TRUBUILD TRU PU

Waterproofing Membrane

 

TRU PU is a single component waterproofing Liquid membrane, elastomeric membrane, it is bitumen modified polymer PU based waterproofing system. PU waterproofing membrane gives excellent barrier to building facades from vapour, salts and water

Application
Applications
  • Waterproofing of wet areas, foundations, basements, terraces, retaining walls, inverted roofs etc
  • For waterproofing terrace garden and podium
  • Other roof structures when protected from exposure to direct sunlight, for longer life
Application
Advantages
  • TRU PU is a single component liquid system and very easy to apply
  • High elasticity ensures a permanently flexible barrier over a wide range of temperatures
  • Outstanding resistance to oxidation and brittlement
  • Gives better adhesion. Can be applied to a range of substrates
  • Good crack bridging capacity up to 2 mm
  • Good retention capacity
How to use
How to use
  • Clean the surface by manual & mechanical means, remove all the loose material or previous work done, make it free from any type of contaminants like oil, sand, debris etc
  • Prime the surface with max. 20% water adding to Tru PU. Mix it till it becomes Homogeneous, then apply by brush or roller to the surface. The coverage will be approx. 80-90 sq ft per Kg. The coverage will depend on the substrate condition. However for non-porous, sound concrete substrate, application of primer can be avoided and directly two coats of TRU PU can be applied.
  • Tru PU undiluted should be applied direct by brush to obtain a continuous unbroken film
  • Two coats are required, second coat should be applied at right angles after the first coat has cured properly
  • It must be protected from mechanical damage during construction or backfilling works
  • Any damage may be repaired by spot application
  • If a water flood test is to be run, the membrane should cure for a minimum of 10 days
  • Tru PU is resistant to frost but adhesion will be weak if it is applied to frosted substrates/surfaces
  • Application should be avoided if substrate temperatures are below 5ºC or rain forecast. For any further technical information please contact the Astral Technical Services Department

Limitations & Precautions

 

  • For Primer, the product should be diluted with water (20% maximum by weight, i.e. 4 kg of water for 20 kg of TRU PU at site to achieve a workable consistency)
  • Water ponding test shall be done only, once the coating is fully cured for 10 days
  • After full cure, This Product will be slightly tacky, hence it is recommended to use a separation layer such as geotextile or PE sheet, Then cover with a protection screed
  • Outgassing is a naturally occurring phenomenon of concrete that can produce pinholes in subsequently applied coatings. The concrete must be carefully assessed for moisture content, air entrapment, and surface finish prior to any coating work. Installing the coating either when the concrete temperature is falling or stable can reduce outgassing. It is generally beneficial, therefore, to apply the embedment coat in the late afternoon or evening
  • For optimum application, do not allow liquid TRU PU to be heated by direct sunlight or other heat sources
  • Not suitable for permanent water immersion, hence not recommended for water-retaining structures such as RC tanks, swimming pools, water features, etc 
  • The 1st coat and 2nd coat of TRU PU should be applied without any dilution & only primer need to be diluted.
  • During the curing process micro bubbles are formed. This is a product characteristic, which does not affect the protective properties. For this reason, it should be ensured that the material is not applied at excessive film thicknesses in one layer. Excessive film thickness may create bubbles
  • The product can be applied by brush, roller or airless spray. Work well with a brush in difficult areas. Apply subsequent layers 24 hrs after the application of first layer
  • If TRU PU has been exposed to UV light, its colour will be changed to yellow slightly without losing its physical properties but flow is possible due to temperature of sun light in open to sky condition.
  • It is recommended to use a reinforced coating system with 45 gsm fleece or fibre net specially on the Joints/corners etc to increase its tensile property. however, the performance of a standard coating system is also excellent
  • A screed needs to be laid on the finished system
