DRYLOK® Pro Masonry Waterproofer

DRYLOK® PRO Masonry Waterproofer

DRYLOK® PRO Masonry Waterproofer is GUARANTEED to protect new construction AND stop water that’s leaking through existing masonry. Ordinary paint just lies on the surface and can be forced off by water pressure. DRYLOK® PRO actually penetrates the pores in the surface, bonding to the masonry to create an impenetrable barrier.

Preparation

DRYLOK® PRO Masonry Waterproofer may be applied on a slightly damp surface, but best results are obtained when the surface is dry, clean and free of grease, oil, form-release compound, and paint. Remove dust, dirt, and any loose or broken mortar with a wire brush. Old paint in poor condition should be removed by wire-brushing, sandblasting or other suitable methods.* If you see white, powdery, crystal-like deposits on the surface, they are naturally-occurring, water-soluble salt compounds in the masonry, pushed out by water intrusion. When the water evaporates, the salt residue remains. This effect is called efflorescence and, because it prevents DRYLOK® PRO Masonry Waterproofer from properly bonding to the surface, it must be removed. Treat it with DRYLOK® Etch** (liquid or powder formula) or muriatic acid according to the manufacturer's directions, rinse, and allow the surface to dry. Since efflorescence occurs naturally, we cannot warrant against it reoccurring.

Patch all cracks and holes with DRYLOK® Fast Plug®. Wet the surface to be patched. Next, back chisel the areas to be patched in the shape of an inverted “V” so DRYLOK® Fast Plug® can better anchor into the wall. Apply and smooth the patch so it's even with the surface around it. As DRYLOK® Fast Plug® sets rapidly, mix only what you'll use in 3-5 minutes. Also, be sure to seal the area where the floor and wall meet. Often, when concrete floors cure, they shrink and pull away from the wall, creating a space where water can enter.

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. Stir DRYLOK® PRO Masonry Waterproofer thoroughly before and during application - do not thin. Apply the first coat to bare masonry with a three-quarter-inch nap roller, a DRYLOK® Brush or a quality nylon bristle brush. If using a brush, work the DRYLOK® PRO Masonry Waterproofer into the pores of the masonry, making sure to fill all pores and pinholes. If using a roller, back brush the first coat to fill all pores and pinholes. Give the first coat three hours to dry, and then apply a second coat using a roller, brush, or sprayer (download our Spray Specs).

Proper coverage, a minimum of 2 coats, is required to warranty waterproofing. After the second coat, carefully inspect the entire surface for pinholes. Give these areas an additional coat. If leaking is still present after 2 coats, it indicates that pores or pinholes are still open. Paint these areas again. When painting the inside of concrete fish ponds and non-potable water tanks, allow DRYLOK® PRO Masonry Waterproofer to dry for at least 1 week, then fill with water.

Disposal

Dispose of contaminated absorbent, container and unused contents in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.
