Below Grade Walls and Floors – In basements, water seepage usually occurs at the wall-floor
intersection. A heavy coating of EPOXYBOND WATERPROOF SEALANT should be applied at the
junction of the wall and floor extending at least 6 inches onto the floor and at least one block high on the wall. If the area of leakage can be pinpointed, extend the coating at least three inches past this point. On porous surfaces, such as cinder block, coverage will be less (approximately 25 sq. ft. per one quart unit).
Two coats are recommended. Apply second coat within 48 hours. If second coat is applied after 48
hours, the surface must first be sanded and cleaned. Although EPOXYBOND WATERPROOF SEALANT
can be applied to a damp surface, the drier the surface being coated, the better the protection. Flowing water must be sealed with a quick setting hydraulic cement before applying EPOXYBOND WATERPROOF SEALANT.
– Apply a topcoat using a good commercially available outdoor paint because
ultraviolet rays from the sun will cause chalking and embrittlement. EPOXYBOND WATERPROOF
SEALANT may be painted after allowing to dry for 24 hours. Prior to painting, wash the surface with soap and water. After it has been in place for more than one week or if exposed to excessive high humidity during application, a blush may appear on the surface.
