Rockbond Flexible (APFC) Membrane (RB FM)

Product Information Sheet:

For use as a Anti-carbonation Protective, Flexible Coating to cement and concrete. Whenever stress, thermal or moisture movement is a problem in a concrete structure. Tanking, roofing, weatherproofing and waterproofing applications.

Description

Rockbond Flexible (APFC) Membrane (RB FM) is a 2 part elastomeric Anti-carbonation, Protective Flexible Coating. The dry pack, Rockbond Flexible Dry Membrane Pack (RBFM DP) is a blend of special cement powders, graded sands and compatible admixtures. When the powder is mixed with Rockbond Flexible Latex (RB FL), a coating is produced which is extremely adhesive, flexible and waterproof. The membrane waterproofs and protects concrete against carbonation, acid gases and chemical attack. The material is supplied in 3kg/2 litre or 15kg/10 litre packs and has a shelf life of 2 year.

Special Properties

  • 2mm of Flexible Membrane provides anti-carbonation protection to concrete equivalent to 50mm of good quality concrete!
  • Available in white, and also in a range of colours.
  • Easy to mix and apply by trowel, float, spatula, brush or spray.
  • Adheres strongly to all construction materials: cement, mortar, concrete, masonry, brick, stone, steel, wood, plastic and glass.
  • Provides a permanent waterproof bond to concrete in situations where there is a positive or negative hydrostatic pressure.
  • Microporous, waterproof, weatherproof and impermeable to aqueous solutions and liquids.
  • Elastic: will flex in sympathy with moving or cracked concrete, render, brick or wood.
  • Remains flexible at temperatures down to -40ºC.
  • Permanent, resilient, and durable, and resistant to ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
  • Protects concrete against frost attack, carbonation, sulphation and acid gases.
  • Water “soluble” – the material and equipment can be washed and cleaned with water.
  • High yielding, economical, non flammable, non toxic, user friendly and safe to use.

Uses

  • For use as an Anti-carbonation Protective, Flexible Coating (APFC) to cement and concrete.
  • Whenever stress, thermal or moisture movement is a problem at a crack, joint or within a concrete structure.
  • Tanking, roofing, weatherproofing and waterproofing applications.
  • The filling, sealing and waterproofing of cracks, joints, gaps and seals.
  • To protect reinforced concrete structures against freeze/thaw cycles, de-icing salts and corrosion of steel.
  • To protect concrete in extreme climatic conditions, high altitude and in severe weather.
  • Elastic requirements during cold weather or low temperature situations.
  • To protect concrete where chemical attack is prevalent such as in marine locations, chemical works, food processing factories, sewers and farms.
  • As a flexible adhesive to bond concrete, tiles, bricks and blocks to concrete, steel, wood and other construction materials.
