Zinsser Watertite is a solvent-based, mould and mildew-proof, internal and external waterproofing paint that is guaranteed to keep water out by sealing masonry, and to give a fantastic finish in commercial spaces and workplaces. In-part, Watertite is designed for dank and damp cellars/basements, containing a biocide that protects the dried coating against fungal degradation for a minimum of 5 years. For ease of use and versatility, it can easily be applied to wet or dry surfaces in a range of light, pastel shades, to create a smooth, non-gritty finish.
Watertite has a unique solvent-based formula that combines a state-of-the-art waterproofing resin with Portland cement to create a coating that stops up to 34psi of water pressure. It is ideal for rooms and surfaces where mould, damp and fungal degradation have been a problem; wine cellars; storage rooms in compartmentalised basement spaces; areas with minimal or poor ventilation.
Unlike other waterproof coatings, Zinsser Watertite waterproofing paint can be applied directly to dry, damp or wet surfaces, allowing for water problems to be cured immediately with minimal preparation or surface drying-out requirements. It can also be recoated in just four hours, drying to a smooth, bright white, and non-yellowing finish that resists dirt and dust pick-up.
Project and facility managers will benefit from using Zinsser Watertite in college, schools and educational facilities, where there are many storage rooms without ventilation, poor air circulation, and long-term requirements of storing paperwork, stationary and equipment on permanent shelving and units.
Watertite can be tinted to most off-white or pastel colours, and has an ultra-low odour formula – lower than most standard emulsions. It adheres to any interior or exterior masonry surface, above and below grade, and is formulated to prevent recurring efflorescence on concrete and brickwork.
Touch-dry in one hour and recoatable after 4 hours, surfaces must be free of any active leaks prior to the first coating. It is advised to apply Watertite to textured surfaces, and smooth surfaces may need to be abraded or blasted first, to create a surface profile.
