It is formulated with select elastomeric and resilient acrylic polymers and reinforcing polyester fibers. Upon curing, it forms a thick, seamless, durable membrane thus offering ultimate waterproofing.
Waterproofing protection of up to7 bars hydrostatic pressure.
- Crack bridging
Unmatched crack bridging ability due to elastomeric properties.
- Mechanical strength
Reinforced with glass fibers for superior abrasion resistance.
Strong adhesion to masonry substrates.
- High sheen
A high sheen, brilliant white color, and thick coat results in high levels of heat reflectance.
- Anti carbonation

HOW TO APPLY
PRE PAINTING STEPS
PLASTER – New masonry surfaces must be allowed to cure completely. It is recommended to allow 28 days as the curing time for new masonry surfaces.
CLEANING – Surface should be free from any loose paint, dust, or grease. Remove all existing bitumen coatings completely. It is recommended to use intense wire brushing or a high-speed water jet for thorough cleaning.
REPAIRING – The substrate must be checked for its soundness using a small hammer. All cracks at corner joints, channels, and parapets should be properly treated.
FILLING FOR CRACKS – For filling cracks up to 3mm use Asian Paints Crack Seal. Bigger cracks, damaged portions, and hollow areas must be repaired with polymer-modified cement mortars.
