Vandex BB75 is a cementitious waterproofing slurry (tanking slurry) with hydrophobic properties, resistant to water and moisture
Grey waterproofing slurry • against active or passive water pressure • for concrete and masonry • efflorescence-free • applicable by spray equipment
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION VANDEX BB 75 is a cementitious, ready-mixed surface waterproofer.
AREAS OF APPLICATION Substrates: concrete and masonry active or passive waterproofing and protection against water and moisture foundations, slabs, retaining walls, etc. drinking water structures
PROPERTIES Owing to its composition of cement, quartz with graded grain-size distribution and selected additives, VANDEX BB 75 is waterproof. It can be employed against active and passive water pressures. The initial and final bonding capability of VANDEX BB 75 is excellent, making it suitable to be applied to horizontal as well as vertical surfaces. It is durable, resistant to frost and heat after setting, but all the same permeable to vapour. VANDEX BB 75 is tested for use in contact with drinking water.
SURFACE PREPARATION The substrate to be treated must be sound and even, openpored, roughened and its surface free from voids, large cracks or ridges. Any adhesion reducing substances like bitumen, oil, grease, remains of paint or laitance must be removed by suitable means. Water leaks must be stopped e.g. with VANDEX PLUG. Thoroughly moisten the substrate it must be damp but not wet at the time of application. Any surface water on horizontal surfaces must be removed.
Brick- and blockwork substrates Any remaining plaster, render or other substances that could inhibit bonding must be removed back to the substrate. Gypsum, remains of wood or other foreign material must be removed by appropriate means. Loose pointing must be routed out and the substrate cleaned thoroughly.
MIXING Mix 25 kg of VANDEX with 4.5–6 litres of tap water in a clean container for at least 3 minutes to a lump-free, homogeneous consistency. Use a mechanical mixer.
APPLICATION VANDEX BB 75 is applied with brush, trowel or suitable spray equipment.
