Damp Care

Product Info:

Damp Care is made up of elastomeric and robust acrylic polymers as well as polyester fibers for reinforcement. It serves as a bonding agent and improves the cohesiveness of concrete and mortar. This waterproofing solution contains plastics that build a waterproof seal when applied to a wall. It ensures that no water seeps or leaks occur. This paint can also be used as a primer before applying decorative finish paint. Damp must be properly addressed before damp proofing paint can be applied.

Damp Care is an acrylic based Polymer Modified Cementitious Flexible Composite coating system. It is used for surface treatment, protecting, waterproofing and repairing concrete and masonry.

Waterproofing of toilets, terraces, roofs etc.

Surface to be waterproofed should be dry, free from grease, dirt, dust or all kinds of loose particles. All surface imperfections should be leveled.

Polymer is mixed with neat fresh cement in the ratio of 1:2 by weight. The mix has to be stirred thoroughly until smooth homogeneous slurry is obtained. Wait for 5-10 minutes to release entrapped air bubbles. Any lump found in the mix should be removed or mixed thoroughly. The mix has to be applied by brush on rendered and/or prepared surface. Two or more coats are recommended. First coat should be allowed to air dry for 5-6 hours prior to apply subsequent coat.

Store the container in cool & dry place. Keep out of the reach of children and away from food, drink and animal feed. May be harmful if swallowed. In case of ingestion seek immediate medical attention. Ensure good ventilation at all times.

Pre Painting Process:

  • PLASTER New masonry surfaces must be allowed to cure completely. It is recommended to allow 28 days as the curing time for new masonry surfaces.
  • CLEANING Surface should be free from any loose paint, dust or grease. Growths of fungus, algae or moss should be removed by wire brushing and water. In case of areas having excessive dampness use Ashirbad Paints Damp Care to limit further dampness.
  • FILLING FOR CRACKS For filling cracks upto 3mm use Ashirbad Paints Crack Fill Paste.
  • FILLING FOR HOLES & DENTS In case of dents and holes use Ashirbad Paints Acrylic Wall Putty or white cement and fine sand in the ratio 1:3
