HOW TO USE
Using Proquick In Extreme Conditions:
A very cold or a hot climate may delay or advance the setting time of PROQUICK.
Neither of these climates makes it any less effective but special care should be taken when mixing and applying the product. It is best to use warm water when mixing PROQUICK in low temperatures. Do not apply when the temperature is close to 0ºC.
Essential Conditions for Obtaining the Best Possible Results with Proquick:
- The crack or opening must be properly prepared. This means that you need to create an indentation about 2 cm deep and thick.
- Cut the indentation so that it is dovetailed or square-shaped but do not make it “V”-shaped.
- Clean the surface of any dirt or residue.
- The product comes in powder form and all that you have to do is add water and mix it until it takes on the consistency of putty. It can then be applied to the area affected either by hand or with a metal trowel.
- Only mix as much PROQUICK that you can use in one or two minutes.
- Employ PROQUICK effortlessly, this helps it to get a good hold.
- PROQUICK should be pressed into the indentation to obtain suitable results.
- Once it has been applied, keep it damp for at least sixty minutes. PROQUICK can be used above and below groundwater levels in: basements, tunnels, sewers, tanks, around piping, cable conduits etc., or anywhere water is not welcome.
Instructions for Sealing Water Leaks:
- Mix PROQUICK with a minimal amount of water, 4:1 (approximately).
- Knead the mass into a cone shape and hold it in your hand until it begins to harden.
- Tightly insert the ball of PROQUICK into the water leak.
- Press down on this plug for 45 seconds. To ensure that the material stays in place, maintain the pressure without moving the hand.
- Once it has hardened, use a spatula to remove any excess PROQUICK.
- Cover the repair with a grout of PREMHOR.
- Then apply two coats of TECMADRY.
Seal Wall/floor joints (only when there are leakages)
The primary cause of water problems in basements lies in the joint between the floor and the wall. This is how to avoid this problem:
- Open an indentation along the entire joint, but do not make it “V”-shaped.
- Use a trowel to make the indentation with PROQUICK and make a molding at 45º.
- Every time you finish laying down a mass of PROQUICK, cut off the end of the molding to ensure that the unions between the masses are beveled.
- When about to seal the union, hold PROQUICK in your hand until it begins to harden, following the same process as in the section on “sealing water leaks with PROQUICK”.
Marked as compliant with standard EN 1504-2 (system 2+) and with European construction products regulations.
