These will vary depending on substrate, the site conditions and longevity required.

Typically spreading rates will vary depending on the end use.

  • Standard Coat - Approximately 1 kg per square metre dependent on substrate
  • High Build Coat - Between 1 kg – 2 kg per square metre dependent on substrate



Drying Times


  • Up to 6-7 days depending on temperature, thickness of coating
  • The product may remain slightly soft for a further period depending on climatic conditions, this is not detrimental to the waterproofing qualities of the product



Preparation


Dirt build up, moss and loose material should be removed by scraping or brushing. In cold conditions any ice present on the surface must be removed.

  • Most roofing substrates to be treated will not normally require priming
  • Application Temperature should be between 5°C-25°C

Highly Porous/Friable Surfaces:

  • Concrete, Concrete and Asbestos Cladding, Sheeting and Guttering should be primed with Britannia Aquashield Primer (see separate technical sheet) prior to over coating with Britannia Aquashield Smooth Waterproof Roof Coating
  • These Surfaces must be jet washed prior to applying the Britannia Aquashield Primer
  • Fibrous cement, corrugated cladding, sheeting and guttering: other than repairs, we recommend the use of Durashield for this application

Metal Surfaces:

  • Ferrous-new, weathered and previously painted galvanised iron and steel
  • All these areas should be suitably prepared and primed as appropriate (see separate technical sheet) before application of Britannia Aquashield Smooth Waterproof Roof Coating

Non-Porous Substrates:

  • Slate, Polished bricks should be power washed abraded and completely dry, free from any contamination to achieve adhesion of the Britannia Aquashield Smooth Waterproof Roof Coating

Bitumen Surfaces:

  • Discolouration may occur over a new asphalt, tar or bitumen surface; therefore an extra coat may be required, for decorative purposes only
  • Aged bitumen can be liable to crack, therefore further advice must be taken

Previously Painted Or Coated Substrates:

  • It is good practice to inspect and carry out adhesion tests on any existing coating or substrate prior to application of the coating

Splits, Cracks, Joints and Seals, Crazed Areas:

  • Pay particular attention to clean out any splits/cracks/joints and seals by scraping or brushing off with a stiff bristle brush before applying the Britannia Aquashield Primer
  • Repair all faults in the surface by either Britannia’s Reinforcing Scrim in the first of two coats or using a proprietary sealer

Surface Faults:

In areas where excessive movement may occur, additional reinforcement must be incorporated into the coating.



Application


  • To the dry and cleaned surface, apply a generous coat of Britannia Aquashield Smooth Waterproof Roof Coating by brush, roller or squeegee, at the minimum specified spreading rate as stated above under the heading
  • Please follow the coverage rates shown in Spreading Rate Section
  • Application Temperature should be between 5°C-25°C



Cleaning


  • For cleaning equipment use Special Solvent (Not White Spirit)



Shelf Life & Storage


  • Up to 2 years if stored correctly in an unopened container



Precautions


  • Flammable keep away from sources of ignition
  • Ensure good ventilation during application
  • Over occupied premises during insulation of coatings we would advise keeping windows closed
  • Wear gloves, goggles and suitable protective clothing
  • In case of contact with eyes rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice
  • Remove splashes from the skin with a recognised hand cleaner or plenty of soap and water
  • Keep out of reach of children
  • Do not use near fishponds

questions Peter on 2019-12-12 17:47:35
Question: 

Following up on a question by Maurice on 22/10/2019, I also wish to use Aquasheild Smooth on Onduline Bitumous roofing sheets, but as these sheets are red I will use the Clear Aquashield product. You recommend using Aquashield Primer first, but is this also clear?

Answer: 

The primer is white so unfortunately a clear option to try an retain the look of the current red colour will not be possible.

questions Ron Bottomley on 2019-11-09 14:33:34
Question:

Britannia Aquashield Smooth would not be suitable for this application.

questions Maurice jenkins on 2019-10-22 11:47:32
Question: 

Can this be used on old ondulin

Answer: 

Assuming you are referring to bituminous corrugated roofing sheets then yes, Britannia Aquashield Smooth would be suitable for application to this type of surface however we would recommend first priming with Britannia Aquashield Primer. We would NOT recommend application of the Aquashield system to Onduline PVC clear sheets however. Depending on the current condition of the roof in question and what you wish to achieve it may be advisable to discuss your project with our Technical Team on 0113 2455450 (option 2).

Question: 

does this product set hard or semi malleable? I am trying to find a product to seal a 1960s fibre glass egg chair,

Answer: 

Britannia Aquashield Smooth is not suitable to be applied to furniture, for this we would instead recommend Rust-Oleum 3333 Super Adhesion Primer followed by Rust-O-Thane 9200 Handy Pack.

questions Matt Taylor on 2019-07-12 13:37:37
Question: 

Hi, could this product be used on a plastered wall in a wetroom? It's to the side of the tiled area so it's not submerged just getting splashed when the shower is used. Regards Matt Taylor

Answer: 

No this would not be suitable for this application. If it is just occassional splashes of water, something like Zinsser Perma-White Interior would be more suited.
