Effective barrier to sulphates and chlorides.
Excellent bond to concrete and masonry.
Vetoproof S is supplied in 20kg Kit, coverage: 1.0 - 1.8 kg /m2/ Coat
Stated consumptions data are for general guidance. Actual consumption depends on the nature of substrate, consistency used, method of application and wastage.
Original sealed container of Vetoproof S and has a shelf life of 12 months provided it is stored clear of ground in a dry shaded place below 35ºC.
Pre-wetting of the substrate
Thoroughly dampen the substrate surface with water using a brush, roller, or spray bottle. High porosity substrates will require more dampening than dense substrates. Do not apply the coating when the substrate is wet, but allow the water to soak in until the substrate is just visibly damp prior to proceeding. Any excess water should be removed using a sponge.
Vetoproof S liquid concentrate should be shacked and completely poured from the plastic container into a suitably sized mixing container. Commence mixing with a propeller agitator attached to a slow speed drill (300-500 rpm). The powder component should be added gradually to the liquid to avoid lump formation and mixed for 2 to 4 minutes. Vetoproof S should be immediately used after mixing to avoid settlement of sand. Part mixing is not allowed. Mix whole kits. Do not mix more material than can be used within the pot life. Keep mixing Vetoproof S during the application.
The most suitable type of brush is a soft bristled wallpaper paste brush (220mm wide and 50mm deep). Where larger areas are to be applied it is advisable to use a brush with a handle. Load the brush up well and spread the material to the required thickness. If the brush begins to drag during application, do not add water to the material, but dampen the surface again. Finish in one direction for a neat appearance.
Application by roller has the benefit of speed over brush application, particularly on smooth substrates. A good quality medium hair roller is recommended. The roller should be well loaded for ease of application. A heavy roller pattern will be left on the substrate, therefore it is important to use a finishing tool to produce a smooth coating, with a uniform 0.75 mm wet film thickness.
Allow Vetoproof S to cure for at least 7 days prior to commissioning. At higher temperatures 30ºC cure for 4 days. At lower temperatures 12ºC cure for 10 days.
Immediately following application, clean all tools and equipment with clean water. Hardened material can be removed by mechanical means.
All surfaces should be dry and free from contamination such as oil, grease, loose particles, decayed matter, moss algal growth, laitance, and all traces of mold release oils and curing compounds. This is best achieved by lightly grit-blasting the surface. Where moss, algae or similar growths have occurred, treatment with a proprietary biocide should be carried out after the grit-blasting process. Spalled and deeply disintegrated concrete should be removed to sound concrete and repaired with a Saveto repair system. Any running water should be stopped with a suitable plugging mortar such as Vetoproof CR747. For further advice, consult the local Saveto office.
Vetoproof S powder is irritating to the eyes, respiratory system and skin. Avoid inhalation of dust and wear suitable respiratory protective equipment.
Vetoproof S liquid is not classified as dangerous. Vetoproof S when mixed becomes highly alkaline. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye protection. For both components and for the material when mixed avoid contact with eyes or skin rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advise. For further information please refer to the Product Safety Data Sheet.
Vetoproof S is non-flammable.
