Supercast EPT, a fluid resin used to encapsulate piletops and ensure water tightness. It is a three-component system consisting of base, hardener, and specially processed fillers. The product is compatible with most types of liquid applied membrane and can withstand attack by a wide range of chemicals, acids, and alkalis, as well as ground water.

 
1. What is the recommended formwork construction process for using Supercast EPT
The formwork should be constructed to be leak proof using foam rubber strip or mastic sealant beneath the constructed formwork and between joints, as Supercast EPT is a fluid material.

 2. Can Supercast EPT be used with any type of liquid applied membrane
The product description states that Supercast EPT is compatible with most types of liquid applied membrane.

How is it used
The formwork should be constructed to be leak proof as Supercast EPT is a fluid material. This can be achieved by using foam rubber strip or mastic sealant beneath the constructed formwork and between joints. A heavy-duty release agent should be applied to all contact areas of formwork. The pile surface must be free from oil, grease, or any loosely adherent material. If the concrete surface is defective or has laitance, it must be cut back to a sound base. Rebar should be clean and rust-free. If reprofiling is required Supercast PC or Renderoc SXtra may be used as appropriate. All surfaces must be substantially dry. All free-standing water must be removed. The entire contents of the hardener should be poured into the base container and mixed until homogeneous. Place the mixed base and hardener into a suitable mixer making sure that the entire volume is poured in. Add the aggregate and mix for 2-3 minutes or until uniform color is achieved. Once mixed, the material must be used within the specified usable life (see under Properties). After this time, unused material will have stiffened and should be discarded. Place the material within the usable life of the product. Continuous material flow is essential. Sufficient product

Mixing
The entire contents of the hardener should be poured into the base container and mixed until homogeneous. Place the mixed base and hardener into a suitable mixer making sure that the entire volume is poured in. Add the aggregate and mix for 2-3 minutes or until uniform colour is achieved. Once mixed, the material must be used within the specified usable life (see under Properties). After this time, unused material will have stiffened and should be discarded.


The advantages of using Supercast EPT are
- High strength and adhesion to substrate ensures excellent performance under operating conditions
- Simple mixing techniques
- Withstands attack by a wide range of chemicals, acids and alkalis, as well as ground water
- High-quality resins ensure durability and long-term service life
- Ensures piletop integrity as part of a waterproofing system.
