Cracks Cracks larger than 2 mm or structural shrinkage cracks must be firstly cleaned and any loose material removed then filled with Emer-Seal MS sealant or covered with Emer- Proof Elastic Joint Band Tape. See Emer-Proof Elastic Joint Band System technical data sheet. Emer-Proof Elastic Joint Band Tape, Corners and Detailing Accessories The Emer-Proof Elastic Joint Band System has been specifically developed by Parchem as a superior bond breaker system to traditional sealants and bond breaker tapes. The Emer-Proof Elastic Joint Band System includes tape (for change of direction – such as wall/wall and wall/floor joints etc.), both 270o external and 90o internal corners, an adjustable internal corner as well as three (3) size variations on pipe detailing squares (suitable from 6mm > 150mm pipe diameters). Parchem also incorporate a fully fleeced, self-adhesive butyl rubber floor waste detailing collar that is suitable for all wet area leak control flanges, for optimum sealing capabilities. If being used in tanking and waterproofing applications, the Emer-Proof Ecoflex requires a suitable bond breaker at all substrate junctions. Parchem nominates the Emer-Proof Elastic Joint Band System which includes tape, corners and pipe penetration detailing squares or equivalent bond breaking methods compliant with local waterproofing standards and building recommendations. Application Ensure the surface has been appropriately prepared in accordance with this TDS. Emer-Proof Ecoflex may be applied with a roller (12 mm nap recommended), brush or standard airless sprayer (piston pump unit, 21 -25 thou tip size - thoroughly mix product before spraying). Its smooth texture and non-sag formulation make it suitable for vertical and horizontal application. The Emer-Proof Elastic Joint Band System should be installed first. Apply the mixed Emer-Proof Ecoflex across the substrate joins extending approximately 70mm either side of the join. Whilst the Emer-Proof Ecoflex is still in a wet state install the Emer-Proof Elastic Joint Band tape / corners and accessories ensuring that all air voids are expelled. Emer-Proof Elastic Joint Band tape corners should be placed in first followed by the Emer-Proof Elastic Joint Band tape. The Emer-Proof Elastic Joint Band tape, corners and pipe detailing squares can be joined via a 50mm overlap, sandwiching a small amount Emer-Proof Ecoflex liquid membrane between the overlapping faces. Each successive coat should be applied at 90 degrees to the previous coat. Emer-Proof Ecoflex is laid onto the surface continually in one direction; it should not be brushed out. Brooms, brushes etc. should be regularly washed during the operation and at any breaks as follows: Keep available a container filled with sufficient strong detergent / water salutation to fully cover the broom or brush. Soak the brush in the solution and shake out before use. As work progresses, rinse the brush at frequent intervals to prevent it clogging, and again shake out before resuming. During any breaks in work the brushes should be left to soak in this solution. Allowing a drying time of 4 hours between coats. Conduct a final inspection on the surface of the membrane prior to commencing back-filling to ensure no pinholes exist. A further coat may be required if imperfections or pinholes are present in the membrane. Mixing Emer-Proof Ecoflex membrane should be lightly stirred before using, and can be applied to both vertical and horizontal surfaces using a roller or brush. Recoating Emer-Proof Ecoflex may be recoated 4 hours after previous coat has been allowed to dry. Shorter times may be acceptable in good drying times. Method: Key joints and dowel bars Emer-Proof Ecoflex is recommended as a coating on key joints and dowel bars. Provided the Emer-Proof Ecoflex is allowed to dry prior to pouring the next section of concrete, it forms an effective slip layer and so allows relative movement between sections. Cooler temperature accelerant Mix Portland cement with water until a slurry mixture is formed. Add 10% slurry solution to volume of Emer-Proof Ecoflex and disperse using drill/paddle mixer. When using slurry mixture into Emer-Proof Ecoflex ensure all Emer-Proof® Ecoflex
