Technical Information
Product Description

Vetoproof CM744 is a two-component polymer modified protective coating for concrete and masonry, its supplied in ready to mix kits that can be applied by stiff brush or trowel. Vetoproof CM744 is used to re-face and even out variations in concrete and masonry surfaces. It provides a seamless, slightly flexible waterproof coating suitable for water tanks, reservoirs, and roofs. The product provides a tough, durable wear-resistant coating that can withstand light pedestrian traffic, has excellent weather resistance for exterior applications, and provides a decorative function.*

*Discoloration may occur due to the elements, but the function remains intact.

Advantages
  • Excellent barrier to carbon dioxide, chloride ions, and water.
  • Allows water vapor to escape from the structure.
  • Waterproof.
  • Good resistance to weathering, durable in all climatic conditions, including UV attack.
  • Cost-effective.
  • Non-toxic - ideal for potable water tanks.
  • Covers honeycombed and pitted poured concrete effectively.

Application Information
Instructions for use

Design Criteria

The coating should be applied in two coats to achieve a total dry film thickness of not less than 2mm. Areas subjected to light foot traffic should receive a minimum 2mm thickness, and an additional 2 mm coating should be applied to areas of moderate to heavy pedestrian conditions. To achieve the correct protective properties, Vetoproof CM744 must be applied to the substrate at the coverage rates recommended.

Mixing

Pour Vetoproof CM744 liquid concentrate 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). Add the powder component gradually to the liquid to avoid lump formation and mix for 2 to 4 minutes. Use Vetoproof CM744 immediately after mixing. Do not mix more material than can be used within the pot life. Keep mixing Vetoproof CM744 during the application.

Application

For best results, surfaces should be damp. To obtain the protective properties of Vetoproof CM744, observe the correct rates of the application. Use a short, stiff brush, preferably 120-200mm width, and apply in one or two coats as required. Trowel applications should use the correct mixing ratio to obtain satisfactory consistency.

The application of Vetoproof CM744 should not commence if the temperature of the substrate is below 5ºC. Application of Vetoproof CM744 on hot substrates, i.e., over 35ºC, is not recommended. It is recommended that for general resurfacing, each coat should be 1mm thick. Areas subjected to light foot traffic should receive at least 2mm thickness of Vetoproof CM744, and an additional 2mm should be applied if conditions are moderate to heavy pedestrian traffic. If in doubt about the condition of the substrate, consult Saveto technical department for any additional information.

Cleaning

Clean tools with water promptly before material hardens. Hardened material can be mechanically removed.

Surface Preparation

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. For further advice, consult the local Saveto office. It is essential that all surfaces that receive Vetoproof CM744 be pre-soaked with clean water before applying Vetoproof CM744.

Limitation

Do not apply the product at a temperature less than +5ºC.

Additional Information
Health & Sefety

Vetoproof CM744 contains cement powders that release alkalies that can be harmful to the skin when mixed or become damp. During use, avoid inhalation of dust and contact with skin and eyes. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves, eye protection, and respiratory protective equipment. The use of barrier creams provides additional skin protection. In case of skin contact, rinse with plenty of clean water, then cleanse with soap and water. In case of contact with the eye, rinse immediately with plenty of clean water and seek medical advice. If swallowed, seek medical attention immediately – do not induce vomiting.

Vetoproof CM744 is non-flammable.
