CRETE SHIELD WATERPROOFING AND PROTECTIVE COATING
Crete Shield is a high strength hydrophobic, "breathing" type, two component, modified epoxy coating, based on a carefully balanced ratio of fillers, water extended resins and hardeners. The exclusive formulation combines flexibility, plus the hardness of epoxy resins.
During the cure phase, Crete Shield polymers cross-link to create a thermoset macromolecule of extreme durability, to provide optimum resistance to a wide variety of chemicals, including severe below grade hydrostatic pressure, and other environmental conditions.
The Crete Shield penetrates deep into the surface capillaries, which when totally cross-linked,serve as a water insoluble lining on the sidewalls of the pores and voids in the substrate making them water repellent. This lining robs the water of its capillary action and prevents moisture from entering through the masonry. Successive coats, each bonded to the previous coat, build up sufficient density, cohesion and strength to render the surface "pinholde free" and impervious to
mass water penetration.
Crete Shield is a heavy bodied ... organic solvent free-odorless ... nonflammable, non-toxic, packaged "ready-to-use" in two equal component packages marked "A" and "B". The components are combined in equal proportions just prior to use. Color ranges from standard white to custom pastels. VISCOSITY is approximately 14,800 cps.
Formulated for on site, two coat spray or roller application, it forms a positive high quality integral protective barrier against a mass water penetration when minimum time, high pressure and strength are major factors on all type of damp interior or exterior, above or below grade
masonry surfaces. This includes concrete, brick, various masonry block, mortar, stucco, gunite, adobe, caststone and sandstone.
Although the resulting rock-hard finish may be installed as its own opaque, decorative accent coat, due to its exceptional durability, non-lift characteristics, high alkali-chemical and water resistance, it is an excellent masonry primer coat for other coatings or paint finishes. Crete
Shield is ideal as a multipurpose material for renovation of old buildings or other edifices.

This is the first epoxy resin that can be combined with Portland Cement mixes. By adding cement and dry sand to blended Crete Shield components, a trowelable bonding mortar is created. This makes an excellent crack filler, leveling and tuck pointing material for masonry
joints. Crete shield possesses tenacious bonding qualities as thin as required.
