    Field of application

    • For use on floors/walls indoors
    • Waterproofing of new and old buildings with ground contact
    • Water impact classes W1.1-E, W1.2-E, W2.1-E, W3-E and W4-E (splashing water only) as per DIN 18533
    • Retrofit waterproofing of buildings according to WTA Code of Practice 4-6


    • Water-based
    • Solvent-free
    • Water pressure tight
    • Highly flexible, elastic and crack-bridging
    • Radon-tight (verified through testing)
    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        Even-surfaced, mineral substrate.

        Clean, dust-free and capable of supporting a load.

        Prepare concrete substrates at wall/base transition areas by means of mechanical material removal.

        Matt damp surfaces are permitted.

        If necessary, provide damp proofing.

      • Preparations

        Remove projecting seams and mortar remains.

        Break off or chamfer corners and edges.

        Smooth out inner corners using a suitable mineral mortar.

        Close indentations > 5 mm using a suitable mineral material.

        Prime absorbent mineral substrates with Kiesol MB or BIT Primer [basic] (1:10 in water).

        If the substrate requires reinforcement (restoration), prime using Kiesol (1:1 with water).

        Create a scratch coat using the product as a contact layer and in order to prevent blisters.

    • Application
      • Application temperature: min. 5 °C max. 30 °C
      • trowel application
      • Ready to use, straight from the container.

        Remove any dried material adhering to the edge of the bucket.

        Apply the product in two layers on the previously prepared substrate.

        If a reinforcement fabric is required, embed into the first waterproofing layer.

    • Application instructions
      • In the case of liquid-applied waterproofing materials, direct sunlight and/or wind exposure can cause accelerated skin formation and accompanying blistering.

        Do not apply any further layers until the previous layer has hardened sufficiently.

        Protect freshly coated surfaces from rain, direct sunlight, frost and condensation.

        Protect dry sealant from mechanical damage and UV radiation.

        Please contact Remmers Technical Service (phone +49 5432 83900) before applying with machine processing.

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • trowel application
      • Scoop, smoothing trowel, layer thickness trowel

      • Clean tools immediately after use with water.

        Remove dried-on material using V 101 Thinner (0978).

    • Storage / shelf life
      • Store frost-free and cool / protect for moisture / close containers
      • Shelf-life 12 months
      • If stored unopened in its original container in a cool, dry place and protected against frost, the product will keep for at least 12 months.
