Fosroc Bushbond is a cementitious coating for application to concrete and brickwork to provide a waterproof barrier and fill out surface imperfections.
Brushbond provides a seamless, waterproof coating suitable for use in water tanks, reservoirs, swimming pools, roofs, toilets and wet areas to ensure water tightness.
Brushbond effectively protects against concrete decay providing a long-lasting barrier to waterborne corrosive salts and atmospheric gases. Brushbond is designed to re-face and even out variations in concrete and masonry surfaces. Brushbond effectively seals concrete masonry walls and bridges the shrinkage cracks which are static.
Brushbond provides a tough and durable coating that cannot be easily damaged or worn away.
Suitable for sealing water tanks, reservoirs, toilets and bathrooms, balconies and basements as well as filling blowholes, cracks, imperfections and for providing concrete surfaces with a uniform appearance.
- Minimum surface preparation needed – Low labour costs.
- Applied directly to the damp concrete and masonry
- Excellent adhesion – Bonds to porous and nonporous surfaces.
- Non-toxic-ideal for potable water tanks
- Waterproof – Excellent for damp-proofing basements
- Breathable-allows transmission of water vapour from the interior of building
- Excellent for the concrete roof, leaking brick and masonry walls
- Good resistance to Carbon dioxide and Chloride ion diffusion
Brushbond is a two-component acrylic polymer modified elastomeric waterproofing membrane which consists of Brushbond powder and Brushbond liquid acrylic emulsion. It requires only the addition of water on-site and when mixed in the proper proportions, an easily brushable coating is produced. Brushbond can simply be applied by a stiff brush, or trowel to obtain the desired thickness. Brushbond powder grey consists of specially selected cement, graded hard-wearing aggregates and additives supplied in powder and Brushbond liquid component of blended acrylic copolymers. The polymer provides Brushbond with exceptional adhesion, toughness and durability
This depends on the required consistency. The approximate coverage per pack at even consistency (1 mm thickness) is as follows :
Consistency Brush Application
Coverage in m2 (23kg + 4lit pack) 16 – 18
Coverage in m2 (6kg + 1lit pack) 4 – 4.5
Allowances should be made for any possible wastages when estimating.
Brushbond powder grey is supplied as a package of 23kg
(Industrial Park) / 6kg powder. Brushbond Liquid is supplied in 4 litres / 1-litre jerry can.
