DESCRIPTION

MAXSEAL® FLEX EXPRESS is a two-component flexible waterproofing mortar, based on liquid acrylic resins (Component A) and special cements, additives and well-graded aggregates (Component B),

With its very fast setting-time makes it the ideal product for waterproofing with sudden rainfalls, short-time curing for flooding tests, splash zone areas or tiling with ceramic after 2 hours drying-time.

Use Maxseal® Flex Express for

  •  Waterproofing in hydraulic works, swimming-pools, water tanks, fountains and other water retaining structures.
  •  For waterproofing between tidal movements or rain. For roofs, terraces, balconies, planters, green roofs and other outdoor areas. Reduced risk of damage to the membrane when sudden rainfalls are occur.
  •  Under balconies where painters want to complete the painting in the same day
  •  Any wet areas where fast curing is beneficial. Indoor areas in bathrooms, changing rooms, kitchens, etc.
    It’s OFTEN BENEFICIAL to be able open areas quickly for tiling operations. This means opening of areas to traffic will occur sooner. Combined with MAXKOLA® M EXPRESS.
  •  Negative waterproofing of tunnels, galleries, basements, elevator pits, underground parking and other structures subject to hydrostatic or negative pressure.
  •  Rapid waterproofing and protection of surfaces exposed to aggressive water, marine water, and soil salts in marine structures, bridges, foundations, retaining walls, wastewater treatment plants, underground structures, pipelines, etc.

Advantages of Drizoro Maxseal Flex Express 

  1. Minimum waiting time between coats is 30-60 minutes Meaning you can get your waterproofing done on the same day.
  2. NO MORE TRIPS BACK TO SITE – SAVES LABOUR AND TRAVEL COSTS
  3. Short curing time allows the membrane to be covered after 2 hours drying-time. Apply ceramic tiles, cement mortars, screeds, etc. and finish today
  4. Provides a flexible waterproofing coat with crack-bridging capability.
  5. Permeable to water vapour, allows the substrate to breath.
  6. Applied on wet substrates. No waiting for the surface to fully dry.
  7. Excellent adhesion on concrete, brick, tiles, stone, cement mortar, prefabricated block, etc.
  8. Resistant to abrasion and UV rays.
  9. No primer or bonding agent required.
  10. Easy manual application: brush or broom.
  11. Environmental friendly, solvent-free and suitable for working areas with bad ventilation
  12. Withstands and protect concrete against freeze/thaw cycles, atmospheric pollution, marine environment, corrosive effects of sea water, sewage water and de-icing salts.
  13. Allows water vapour diffusion, very good water vapour permeability.
  14. Withstands the root penetration, when properly reinforced with fibber glass mesh.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTION

Surface preparation

Substrate must be structurally sound, firm, without cement laitance and as uniform as possible, and preferably with a slight roughness, i.e. open textured surface. Surface must be clean and free of efflorescence, loose particles, grease, oils, curing agents, form release agents, dust, organic growth or any other contaminants that may affect to adhesion. For cleaning and substrate preparation, preferably in case of smooth and/or poorly absorbent substrates, use sand blasting or high pressure water cleaning methods, not being desirable aggressive mechanical means.

Any damage or concrete defect, i.e. honeycombs, voids, and non-active cracks, once opened and routed to a minimum depth of 2 cm in depth, must be repaired with a suitable structural repair mortar such as Maxrest (Technical Bulletin No. 4), or Drizoro Maxplug (Technical Bulletin No. 4) in case water is present. Exposed steel bars or other metal elements must be cleaned and passivated with Maxrest®Passive  (Technical Bulletin No. 12), while non-structural and surface iron elements must be cut to a depth of at least 2 cm and then covered with Maxrest.

To reduce damages caused by salt crystallization from the substrate, apply Efflorescence RID and SEALTIGHT. See specification
Once substrate is prepared, but prior to Maxseal® Flex EXPRESS application, saturate the entire surface to be coated with plenty of water. Avoid the formation of puddles. Allow excess water to drain away. Then start the application once the surface acquires a matte appearance. If it gets too dry, proceed to saturate it with water again.

Mixing

MAXSEAL® FLEX EXPRESS is supplied as two pre-weighed components. Pour 3/4 parts of the liquid resin, Component A, into a clean container and add the powder gradually, Component B, while mixing with a low speed mixing drill (400- 600 rpm).
Mix for 2 to 3 minutes until a homogeneous lump free mixture is achieved. Pour all the remaining liquid resin and mix until all lumps are eliminated. Do not add water and keep liquid/powder ratio as per the packaging supplied

Depending on existing temperature and R.H. climate conditions. Pot life expected will be about 30 minutes. In order to keep the workability of the fresh mixture, mix it briefly again from time to time but never add more resin or water.

Application

For the best coverage and thickness control Maxseal® Flex EXPRESS is applied with a fibre type brush Maxbrush or fibre broom Maxbroom. Apply two coats in perpendicular direction with a recommended consumption from 1,0 to 1,5 kg/m2 per coat, for a total consumption from 2,0 to 3,0 kg/m2. Once spread the coating, do not over work it with the brush or broom.

Provide a continuous fresh coating with uniform thickness of 1,0 – 1,5 mm approximately, being important to avoid extending it very thin like paint or with a higher consumption than recommended.

Minimum waiting time between coats is at least 30-60 minutes and at most 24 hours. If a smooth surface is desired, the second coat can be pressed slightly with a metal trowel immediately after its application and while it is still fresh,

Critical points subject to movements such as cracks, cold joints, corners and other outstanding points, once repaired and sealed, are waterproofed by applying a first coat of Maxseal® Flex EXPRESS with a consumption of 1,5 kg/m2 and reinforced with the fibreglass mesh Drizoro Maxmesh placing a strip width of not less than 20 cm width on to fresh coat. Finally, a second coat of Maxseal® Flex EXPRESS is applied with a consumption of 1,0-1.5 kg/m2.

Application conditions
The working temperature range is from 5°C to 40°C.

  • Winter time do not apply
    when temperature is below 5°C or expected in first 24 hours of curing
    Never apply on frozen or icy surfaces. Optimal working temperature is between 15 to 28°C.
  • on frozen or flooded surfaces.

Avoid application when rainfall is expected. Especially within the first 24 hours of the application.

Applications at hot temperatures (> 30 ºC) with direct sunlight and/or with windy conditions, ensure surface is saturated plenty of water prior to application.

Curing

MAXSEAL® FLEX EXPRESS can be covered with ceramic tiles, mortars or soil/gravels after 2 hours. Curing-time before flooding tests or permanent water contact is 72 hours at 20°C. Applications made at lower temperatures or sites without ventilation will require longer curing time. Before putting MAXSEAL® FLEX EXPRESS into permanent water immersion, wash surface plenty with water hose.

Cleaning
Clean all tools with water after use. Once it dries, it can only be removed by mechanical methods.

CONSUMPTION
CONSUMPTION: For extreme situations Requiring full 4 bar positive and 1.5 bar Negative waterproofing

Apply two coats, using 1 – 1,5 kg/m2 of MAXSEAL FLEX EXPRESS per coat
Prior to application thoroughly wash down and saturate the surface, but do not leave free standing water.
Thickness per layer should be 1 mm. approximately, it is very important to avoid very thin or, thick application. WET surface again prior to application of second coat.

For all other waterproofing both positive/negative an application achieving a yield of 2 coats finish at 20m2 per Kit (35 Kg) is recommended
In those areas such as fissures, concrete joints and active cracks should be sealed using Maxjoint Elastic once repaired and
sealed. MAXSEAL FLEX EXPRESS should be applied with a fibreglass mesh of 40-60 g/m2.

Estimated consumption for MAXSEAL® FLEX EXPRESS is about 1,0-1,5 kg/m2 per coat, for a total consumption of 2,0-3,0 kg/m2 in two coats.
In case of reinforcing with glass fibre mesh Drizoro Maxmesh total consumption for two coats is about 3,0 kg/m2.
These figures are for guidance only, and may vary depending on porosity, texture, substrate conditions and application method. Perform a preliminary test on-site to ascertain the total consumption exactly under jobsite conditions.
