Product

Water Based

Suitable for indoor/outdoor surfaces both including masonry, concrete, FC sheet, aluminium, timber, steel, and some plastics.

Flexible. Clear. Mid-sheen. Suitable for top-coating with water-based paints and finishes. Low VOC.

Designed to control absorption and allow even coverage of top coats. Consolidate dry and porous surfaces. Provides a sound substrate for the application of paints, waterproofers and architectural topcoats. Water based top coats can normally be applied immediately after the primer has dried (eg 1-2 hours). May soften and whiten with exposure to water

Acrylic Primer 121

Solvent Based

Suitable for outdoor surfaces especially smooth or dense concrete. Excellent penetration into the surface for difficult to 'wet out' surfaces like tilt-panels and honed concrete where form release agents may interfere with penetration of water based sealers. 

Hard clear glossy finish. Suitable for top-coating with solvent-based paints and finishes and water based paints and membranes after full cure (ie >24 hours).

Excellent penetration into porous surfaces and good adhesion. Provides a sound base for top coats and helps prevent alkali (eg mineral salts) deposit migration through coatings. Cannot be overcoated with water based coatings within 24 hours. Will not soften or whiten in contact with water

Tilt Panel Primer 381

Epoxy

Suitable for indoor and outdoor surfaces. Low UV resistance and should be top-coated when used outdoors. Suitable for negative pressure situations

Extremely hard-wearing. Mid-sheen finish. Grey colour. Suitable for top coating with water or oil based paints within 24 hours.

Outstanding adhesion to both porous and non porous surfaces. Recommended where hydrostatic pressures (ie water or moisture from below) can be expected. Can be applied to wet concrete. Top coats need to be applied before full cure (ie within 24 hours). Excellent chemical resistance

Recommended Product

Penetrating Sealer

A chemical reaction bonds active ingredients within the substrate, blocking surface moisture.

Most exterior surfaces where a natural, non-film forming finish is desired. Ideal for pools surrounds as it provides a non-slip finish. May be used on a variety of materials.

Virtually invisible.  Does not change the surface appearance or leave a sheen. (May slightly darken dark colours). Non-slip.

Provide excellent protection against outdoor exposure conditions. Most products are also breathable, allowing moisture vapor to escape.

601 Penetrating Sealer

Acrylic - Solvent Based Sealer

Forms a protective film on the concrete surface.

Ideal for exterior concrete to enhance the beauty of plain, stenciled, coloured, stamped or exposed- aggregate concrete and natural stones such as sandstone and slate.

High-gloss, "wet-look" finish.

May become slippery when wet. Application of an anti-slip powder is recommended.

Provides good protection against water, chemicals and oils, usually wear faster than epoxies.
Solvent-based acrylics generally perform better than water-based products for outdoor use.

301 Coloured Concrete Sealer

310 Concrete Sealer

311 Driveway Sealer

312 Exposed Aggregate Sealer

313 Stencilled Concrete Sealer

314 Stamped Concrete Sealer

321 Slate Sealer

331 Sandstone Sealer

Acrylic - Water Based Sealer

Forms a protective film on the concrete surface.

Ideal for interior surfaces or where a mid-sheen finish is desirable. May also be used outside

Mid-sheen, "satin" finish.

May become slippery when wet. Application of an anti-slip powder is recommended.

Hard-wearing, budget friendly sealer. Ideal for interior use due to low odour or where a a high gloss finish is undesirable.

401 Clear Water-Based Sealer

402 Paving Paint Clear

403 Concrete Sealer WB

Epoxy

Forms a superior protective film on concrete surfaces. Two-part products mixed prior to application.

On floors in high-traffic areas. Ideal for industrial flooring. May discolour slightly with UV exposure, so generally limited to interior use. Designed to provide a moisture and vapour barrier over porous surfaces.

Has a gloss finish. Available in grey.

Produces a hard, long-wearing, abrasion-resistant finish. Also offer excellent water repellence. Excellent resistance to hydro-static pressure.

820 Epoxy Primer

 

Base Coatings Waterproofers

Base 101 Waterproofing Membrane can accommodate structural movement and complies with the performance requirements of Building Code of Australia. It exceeds design criteria AS4858 (Class III) with elongation exceeding 300%.

Base 121 Acrylic Primer is a general purpose primer and waterproofer designed for application over a wide range of substrates to improve adhesion of topcoats and to control absorption.

Base 820 Epoxy Primer is designed to provide a moisture and vapour barrier over porous surfaces such as concrete floors and walls slabs, panels and blocks. Base 820 is able to withstand hydrostatic pressure of approx. 500kPa or 50m in height and can be used in negative pressure situations.
