BOYSEN® Plexibond™ #7760

DESCRIPTION: BOYSEN® Plexibond™ is a specially formulated acrylic polymer designed for compounding with Portland cement. The resulting mixture possesses excellent adhesion, water resistance, and flexibility even on thin section applications. Its use eliminates water seepage. This makes it ideal for positive side waterproofing roof decks and firewalls.

PRINCIPAL USES: Excellent adhesion on concrete substrates.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
Outstanding Flexibility
PlexibondTM-modified cement possesses superior flexibility, eliminating cement-plastering defects. It maintains the integrity of the mortar with its excellent adhesive and tensile strength.

Excellent Water Resistance
It forms a seamless, non-porous, impenetrable layer that disperses any liquid upon contact, preventing any water seepage when applied on both vertical and horizontal surfaces.

Resistant to Weathering
It has excellent sunlight exposure resistance, prolonging the service life of light building materials such as marine plywood and fiber cement boards.

Beautifies
It can also be brushed on as a plaster finish or applied by using a textured roller or a mortar gun, resulting in an attractive “orange peel” texture cementitious coating.
 

DRY TIME:
Touch: 2 hours
Recoat: 2 hours in between coats (Allow to dry for at least 1 day before painting) 
 
THEORETICAL COVERAGE PER 4-LITERS: 5-6 sq. m.
*Depending on surface texture and porosity
 
TINTING: Not applicable
 
THINNING SOLVENT: Not applicable
 
CLEAN-UP SOLVENT: Water
 
PACKAGING: 4-Liters and 16-Liters
 
APPLICATION: By brush or textured roller

MATERIAL PREPARATION:

Slowly mix 6.5-7.5 kilograms of cement to 4-Liters of BOYSEN® Plexibond™ while constantly stirring to prevent lumping. Pass the mixture through a fine strainer to sift out lumpy materials. Ensure intimate mixing, stirring as often as possible to avoid settling. Keep mixture proportion constant for a uniform texture. Mix only enough material to prevent waste. Workability of Plexibond™ mixture is 30 minutes, while the potlife is 2 hours.

SURFACE PREPARATION:

BOYSEN® Plexibond™ should be applied on bare concrete that has not been previously painted. Existing paint should be totally scraped off. New masonry should be allowed to cure for at least 14-28 days. The surface should be clean, free from oil, grease, dust, dirt, and any loose grit or mortar. Dampen concrete surfaces first with water before applying Plexibond™ mix to avoid abrupt drying and cracking of the applied modified cement, especially under hot and sunny conditions.

APPLICATION SCHEDULE:

For vertical surfaces such as firewalls, apply one coat of Plexibond™ mixture using a textured roller (for orange peel texture finish) or two coats by brush (for plain finish) while maintaining coverage rate at 5-6 square meters. Recoating interval is 1-2 hours.

For filling large cracks, add 3 parts by volume of fine, uniform-sized sand to 1-part cement and mix with PlexibondTM to a trowellable consistency.

Suggested topcoats are BOYSEN® Permacoat™ Latex, BOYSEN® Acrytex™, BOYSEN® Acqua Epoxy™, or BOYSEN® Epoxy Enamel. Allow Plexibond™ to dry for at least one day before paint application.

For horizontal surfaces such as roof decks, parapets, canopies, and ledges, slowly mix 6.5 kg cement to 4-Liters Plexibond™ and apply 3-5 coats by brush or 2-3 coats by textured roller.

Reinforce joints, corners and active cracks susceptible to cracking or movement with a strip of fiberglass matting. Put on the matting immediately after the second coat while the mixture is still wet. The matting should adhere to the mixture. Make sure the PlexibondTM coating and the matting are completely dry before applying succeeding coats. The matting should be completely covered by the mixture. Let dry for one day, and then apply a bond coat by brushing BOYSEN® Plexibond™ straight from the can prior to laying out mortar topping.
