  • Preparation
    • Substrate requirements

      The substrate must be clean, dry, flat and capable of bearing a load, and free of dust, oil, grease and release agents.

      Roughen non-mineral and pore-free substrates.

      Absorbent mineral substrates, not self-compacting concrete (SCC), may be slightly damp.

    • Preparations

      Remove projecting seams and mortar remains.

      Break off or chamfer corners and edges.

      Reinforce transitions/connections/joints to and on non-mineral substrates/components with joint tape (Tape VF).

      Optionally, use a suitable mortar to produce a sealing cove.

      Close indentations > 5 mm with a suitable filler or with MB 2K mixed with suitable quartz sand (MR of between 1:1 and 1:3).

      Roughen the surface of plastic pipes with sandpaper; clean and, if necessary, sand metal pipes.

      If necessary, provide damp proofing.

      Prime absorbent mineral substrates with Kiesol MB.

      Apply a scratch coat (approx. 500 g of MB 2K/m²) with the product itself as a contact layer and in order to prevent blisters.

  • Preparation
    • Mixing time 3 min
    • Combination container

      Mix the liquid component (component A) with a suitable mixing tool.

      Pour the loosened powder component (component B) completely onto the liquid component.

      Mix for approx. 1 minute before suspending the mixing process to allow the air that has been stirred in to escape.

      Remove the powder adhering to the side.

      Mix again for approx. 2 minutes.

      Keep the mixing tool near the bottom of the bucket while mixing.

  • Application
    • Application temperature: min. 5 °C max. 30 °C
    • By brush / Mortar cover / Trowel application / Spraying
    • Vertical surface waterproofing

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

      Horizontal surface waterproofing

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

      After the waterproofing has dried thoroughly, place two layers of PE sheet over the waterproofing before the screed is laid.

      At the edges, the waterproofing layer is applied up to the upper edge of the floor or up to the horizontal barrier.

      Horizontal waterproofing in and underneath walls

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

      Connection details/building element joints

      Reinforce internal corners and connection joints, as well as connections to non-mineral components (e.g. floor-to-ceiling windows, doors, etc.) and joints on insulation boards with joint tape from the VF series.

      Apply the product, embed Tape VF over the entire surface, ensuring that there are no bubbles or creases.

      Pipes passing through walls

      W1-E: seal pipe penetrations by using the product to form a cove around them.

      W2.1-E: use an adhesive flange or a suitable loose/fixed flange to integrate pipe penetrations into the waterproofing material.

      Wall base render

      The product can be overcoated with adhesive and reinforcing mortar, e.g. Remmers VM Fill / VM Fill rapid, after approx. 4 hours.

      Embed the reinforcing fabric into the render layer over the entire surface.

      Follow-up work and coverings

      After 4 hours, work can be continued with adhesive mortar, filling
      mortar or reinforcement mortar.

      Coating

      Direct coating with binder-rich dispersion coats.

      Always set up a trial area/trial areas first.

  • 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 use in direct sunlight.

      Do not use on untreated aluminium.

      The scratch layer does not as a rule count as a waterproofing layer.

      The maximum total wet coat thickness must not exceed 5 mm.

      Moving the material (e.g. by stirring) in the mixing bucket can prevent premature skin formation.

      Mortar that has already set cannot be made workable again by adding
      water or fresh mortar.

      Protect the fresh waterproofing layer from rain, direct sunlight, frost and condensation water.

      Once dry, protect from mechanical damage.

      Add a further load-distributing layer if using the product for waterproofing under raised floor supports.

      Ensure sufficient ventilation when applying the product in closed areas (wear respiratory protection if necessary).

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

  • Working tools / cleaning
    • Mortar cover / Filling knife / Trowel application / Application by spraying
    • Clean tools with water while the material is still fresh.

      Any material that has already begun to dry can only be removed mechanically.

  • Storage / shelf life
    • Store frost-free and cool / protect for moisture / close containers
    • Shelf-life 9 months
    • If stored unopened in its original container in a cool, dry place and protected against frost, the product will keep for at least 9 months.

      Layer thickness allowance according to DIN 18533:
      The German standard provides for a layer thickness allowance dz to ensure the minimum dry layer thickness dmin. This takes into account both processing-related fluctuations dv and the additional amount required for levelling the substrate du. If the substrate is levelled separately (e.g. by means of a scratch coat), du is not included in the calculation.
      du = scratch coat, application rate approx. 0.5 kg/m² (depending on the substrate)
      dv = Not required with layer thickness trowel / Application rate approx. 0.4 kg/m² without layer thickness trowel (dmin = 3 mm)
