DRYLOK® Latex Bonding Agent

DRYLOK® Latex Bonding Agent

DRYLOK® Latex Bonding Agent bonds new concrete, stucco, stone, plaster and more to structurally sound, difficult surfaces like dense, slick or porous concrete, stone, drywall, hardboard, and plaster walls. When used as an additive in concrete mixes for patching, DRYLOK® Latex Bonding Agent improves adhesion and increases the resiliency and elasticity of the patch. DRYLOK® Latex Bonding Agent may also be used for pointing plaster cracks.

Preparation

Surface must be clean, dry and free of oil, grease and powdery or peeling materials.* Protect from freezing.

Application

Schedule your project when both air and surface temperatures are 50°F or higher and, for best results, wait for a dry (rain-free) period.

To strengthen concrete mixes: Slowly add DRYLOK® Latex Bonding Agent to cement powder (1 quart DRYLOK® Latex Bonding Agent to 3 parts cement powder for normal repairs), stirring constantly until the consistency is smooth. Adjust the consistency, if necessary, by adding additional latex or cement.

To patch or repoint: Brush or spray DRYLOK® Latex Bonding Agent on the surface to be repaired. Apply full strength without thinning. Once DRYLOK® Latex Bonding Agent changes from a milky color to a clear glaze (approximately 30 minutes), it is ready for a topcoating of plaster or concrete.

To improve powdered waterproofers: mix DRYLOK® Latex Bonding Agent with water in a 1 to 1 ratio, and use this mixture instead of water to prepare the powdered masonry waterproofer (like DRYLOK® Powdered Masonry Waterproofer).
