LAVATEX 2000 is a high performance ready
to use, cold applied, high build liquid
waterproofing membrane based on polymer
modified bitumen emulsion. LAVATEX 2000
forms a seamless, highly elastic and durable
film that adheres well to most of the common
substrates e.g. concrete, cement blocks, wood,
existing roof felts. LAVATEX 2000 is highly
resistant to chlorides and sulphates commonly
present in the soil.Also resistant to fungus
growth.

2. APPLICATION LAVATEX 2000 can be applied by brush, roller or squeegee. Hot, dry or very porous substrate should be dampened with clean water prior to application of LAVATEX 2000. When two or more coats are required, ensure that the preceding coat is fully dry before applying the successive coat, which should be applied at right angle to preceding coat. LAVATEX 2000 also acts as a curing membrane; hence it may be applied to fresh concrete immediately after the removal of formwork, eliminating the need of conventional curing with water. Since it gives a permanent black finish LAVATEX 2000 is recommended as curing membrane only for surfaces which have no aesthetic value such as sub-structures of buildings. Caution: Should not be used as curing membrane on surfaces to be painted. APPLICATION RATE • For damp proofing/vapour barrier: 3 – 4 m² / kg /coat – Apply 2 coats • Waterproofing membrane: 1m²/ kg /coat – apply 2 coats • Curing membrane: 2 – 3 m²/kg – apply one coat PACKING 18 kg pail and 200 kg drum.

1. LAVATEX 2000 is a high performance ready to use, cold applied, high build liquid waterproofing membrane based on polymer modified bitumen emulsion. LAVATEX 2000 forms a seamless, highly elastic and durable film that adheres well to most of the common substrates e.g. concrete, cement blocks, wood, existing roof felts. LAVATEX 2000 is highly resistant to chlorides and sulphates commonly present in the soil.Also resistant to fungus growth. USES • Waterproofing of concrete and block foundations, retaining walls, basements and wet areas such as kitchen, toilet floors and balconies. • Damp proof membrane in sandwich panel constructions • Curing membrane cum protective coating for sub structure • Façade damp proofing FEATURES • Single component, ready to use. • Resistant to temperatures from -20 0 C to +110 0 C. • Easy to use. • Non-flammable and Non-toxic. • Applicable on damp surfaces. • Resistant to chlorides & sulphates usually present in the soil. • Environment friendly • VOC Free TYPICAL PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS Appearance : Thick brownish emulsion dries to a black Flexible protective membrane. Specific Gravity : 1.03 +/- 0.01 Non-volatile content : 65% (Approx.) Rubber content : 12% (Approx.) pH : 11.0 – 13.0 VOC : < 10 g / kg Drying Time : 1 – 3 hours Full dry : 3 – 4 days The drying time depends on the type of substrate, temperature, humidity and thickness of layer, etc. PROPERTIES OF DRY FILM Softening point R & B (ASTM D36 - 84) : > 100ºC. Elongation at break (ASTM D412) : 700% approximately Water vapour permeability (ASTM E96- 92) : 0.15gr/m 2 /day Resistance to water (ASTM D2939) : No Blistering or re- emulsification STANDARDS Protection of buildings against Ground water: As per BS 102 Code of practice. Curing membrane: ASTM C 309:1998 ASTM D 2939 SURFACE PREPARATION All surfaces should be sound, clean and free of contaminants. Absorbent surfaces e.g. concrete should preferably be dampened with water. In kitchens, toilets and other wet areas all the openings should be properly sealed. On all weak points such as cracks or around the pipes use a woven fiberglass mesh as LAVATEX 2000.
