Constructive solutions

RECOMMENDED SYSTEM:

Nitoproof 600 Standard – Pitch modified, Liquid applied single component elastomeric
waterproofing membrane at 1.3mm thickness.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Nitoproof 600 single component pitch modified polyurethane cures by reaction with
atmospheric moisture to give a tough elastomeric waterproof membrane. It is supplied
in a single grade to meet all site application methods and requirements. Nitoproof 600
is a medium viscosity grade (approximately 600 poise) for roller, squeegee or spray
application to horizontal and vertical surfaces.

ADVANTAGES
One component; ready to apply direct from the can
Liquid application means details are simplified and there are no joints in the
membrane
Highly elastic, cures to give a permanently flexible resilient barrier over a wide range
of temperatures
Rapid installation; significantly reduces time spent on preparatory works and detailing
Excellent adhesion can be applied to a wide range of substrates. Continuous adhesion
prevents lateral migration of water
Impervious - outstanding barrier properties ensure protection against corrosive soil
conditions
Thermally stable - irreversible chemical cure eliminates melting and flow at high
temperature
Excellent resistance to oxidation and embrittlement
Mechanical damage to the membrane can be easily repaired by spot application

APPLICATION METHODOLOGY:

TREATING THE CONSTRUCTION JOINTS / CRACK / HONEY COMB:

Chase opening the Construction Joints by providing “V” groove, removing the dust and
clean the designated area.
Providing chemical injection treatment in the form of pressure grouting to the cold joint
by injecting cement slurry mixed with grout admixture Cebex 100 @ 225 gms.per bag
of cement, in the required consistency through the pre fixed PVC nozzles in the 18
mm dia holes(or as designed).
Fixing of PVC nozzles with Plugging material and final cutting the projected nozzles
and sealing off the PVC nozzles after the injection operation is over with Plugging
material, Renderoc CS / Nitomartor PE (for fast and High strength )compound,
finishing, curing etc.
Constructive solutions

COVING (Where ever necessary)

Laying at all the junction of vertical and Horizontal junctions / offsets 75mm x 75mm
with Cement Mortar 1:4 and admixed with Nitobond SBR at dosage of 3 L per bag of
Cement

BORE PACKING INLET / OUT LET PIPES (where ever required)


Preparing the inside surface of core and PVC by roughening using suitable file to get
better adhesion prior to packing works.
Cleaning the surface by wire brushing followed water jet to remove any laitance or
loose flaky particles.
Providing necessary formwork for packing the bore using suitable arrangement
(depending upon site conditions).
Applying a coat of styrene- butadiene based polymer coating using Nitobond SBR to
enhance adhesion between the packing material and other surfaces.
Packing the gap using Conbextra GP1 / GP2 non-shrink cement polymer based grout
upto the surface of the bore whilst the SBR is in tacky state.
The above analysis is based on assumption for 150mm diameter core with 110mm
diameter PVC for 5” thick slab only.
Typical Properties Compressive strength at 28day as per BS 1881 45N/mm2,
completely as per the manufacturer’s Instruction.

METHODOLOGY FOR NITOPROOF 600 Standard COATING MATERIAL


APPLICATION OF PRIMER:

PRIMER
Priming is not normally required on good quality concrete substrates. However,
absorbent surfaces such as porous concrete, sand/cement and cement boards will
require sealing to prevent absorption of Nitoproof 600 standard. This should be done
using a 1:1 mixture of Nitoproof 600 standard and Nitofl or Sol. All metal and PVC
surfaces should be cleaned and abraded before priming.
Constructive solutions

WATERPROOFING COATING
NITOPROOF 600 Standard is supplied in a CAN / DRUM Pack of 20 Ltr, as a single
component, which does not required any mixing as site level the supplied product is
ready to use, however the supplied CAN / DRUM still need homogametic mixed liquid
hence ,the stirrer using slow speed is used before ready to use on substrate.

Surface preparation by manual means to remove laitance, loose particles which may
hinder bond strength of the waterproofing system and application substrate shall be
completely dry surface.
Application method by Squeezes using Nitoproof 600 Standard at 1.3 mm thick.
Nitoproof 600 Standard membrane must be cured for a minimum of 24 hours which
shall be of SELF CURING, before placing any subsequent layer.
Loosely laying non-woven geotextile as separation layer on the coated substrate.
Ponding Test after Treatment
The coating shall be continued onto the adjescent vertical substrates 300 mm above
the FFL.
The exposed coating shall be broadcasted with sand when wet to provide mechanical
key to plaster application.
After plastering of the parapet wall and other vertical surfaces shall be coated with
crack bridging UV resistant Nitocote Wall guard coating.

PROTECTION SCREED
Protection screed with Slope Gradient (As approved and recommended by the
Architect / Consultants):
Providing, batching, mixing, transporting through transit mixers, pumping and laying
controlled Screed Concrete of M20 grade at all levels and heights specified below
using ordinary Portland cement of grade 53 from approved manufacturer, river sand,
12mm and down size coarse aggregates, necessary admixtures approved by
Consultants.
Including all leads and lifts, pumping using line pump or boom placer, vibrating/
compaction, scaffolding wherever necessary, curing as directed at all heights and
depths as instructed. Cost to include providing & mixing Conplast WL Integral
waterproofing admixture into the concrete mix @ 125ml/bag of cement as per
Constructive solutions

manufacturers specifications, to smooth finish and impression marking 300 x 300


Square with 3 mm rod /thread-markings. (Or as per the Engineer-In-Charge
Recommendations)
Treatment to continue along the vertical surface for 300mm height in shape of round
vata, curing etc.
Screed to be laid in panels of not more than 200sqm and the joints shall be treated
with Elastomeric Sealants. (Or as per the Engineer-In-Charge Recommendations)
