Description

Product Detail

Waterproof and protect your swimming pool, fountain, basin, water tank

The highest water pressure resistant and the richest resin based waterproof cementitious tanking system available on the market that will make your waterproofing system last for years!

Waterproof Cement Tanking Systems are a well proven waterproofing solution to render your structures resistant to water pressure and infiltration.
Arcacem Pool and Arcacem S2 are also used to keep water from leaking out of a building structure- swimming pools, water tanks or water reservoirs.

ARCACEM POOL is a waterproof cementitious tanking system which is highly resistant to hydrostatic pressure whether it is applied from the inside (pressure against your swimming pool structure, for example) or the outside (pressure from the outside against your building structure).

ARCACEM POOL works by blocking the capillary pore structure of the concrete surface to liquid water ingress while remaining permeable to water vapour ( which allows any entrapped moisture to escape and the struture to 'breathe'). Penetrating into the pores of the substrate, our waterproof tanking product will become one with your structure (and cannot be pushed off by water pressure).

The waterproof tanking system ARCACEM POOL does not add heavy weight and additional thickness to your existing structure (3mm) while proving extremely resistant to high hydrostatic pressure.

Avoid water based waterproofing cimentitious tanking system that are not recommanded for large underwater structure such as swimming pool, basin, water tank... (weak effect on water pressure resistance) instead use our Resin Based Arcacem Pool Waterproofing Cementitious Tanking System.

*Resistant to salt water The 25 kg kit of GREY ARCACEM can be used in agressive environments (mountains, seafront, salt water pools) where salt water or water with a high rate of sulfates is present. Resistance to compression: 52.5

white* The 5 kg kit of WHITE ARCACEM is not salt water resistant nor is it resistant to water with a high presence of sulfates.Resistance to compression: 32.5

Waterproof Cementitious Tanking System Arcacem Pool Pack Sizes:

2 pack sizes: 5kg - 25kg

5kg Kit = 4kg powder + 1 kg resin
25kg = 20kg powder + 5 kg resin

Waterproof Cementitious Tanking System Arcacem Pool Additional Products:

A complete waterproof and tanking system, ARCACEM POOL can be covered with a decorative paint such as ARCAPOOL or tiling (in swimming pools, for example) or the waterproofing tanking product can be left as is (when applied in water reservoirs , for example).

Arcacem POOL white can be coloured, tinted with Arcacolour powder dyes (3% of the total volume of the mixture ARCACEM POOL + ARCACOLOUR (dry and liquid parts))

Waterproof Cementitious Tanking System Arcacem Pool Additional Information:

ARCACEM POOL is a cement based waterproof tanking system consisting of hydraulic binders (cement powder, aggregates and chemical additives) and resins in dispersion.

Tanking in existing structures is applied internally (the inner walls of basements or swimming pools) and its performance will depend on the strength of its bond to the surface.
ARCACEM POOL is not only easy to use by simply mixing the two pre-batched components provided, it provides a waterproof coating which adheres perfectly to damp surfaces, cement and fresh mortar.

Arcacem, a complete waterproof and tanking system, can be left as is (when applied in water reservoirs and tanks, for example) or it can be covered with a decorative paint such as ARCAPOOL or tiling (in swimming pools or water basins, for example).

ARCACEM POOL is a cement based waterproof tanking system consisting of hydraulic binders (cement powder, aggregates and chemical additives) and resins in dispersion. This composition makes it a non-toxic, waterproof coating highly resistant to abrasion and erosion.

ARCACEM POOL has excellent resistance to water pressure, both positive and negative hydrostatic pressure.
Using our waterproof tanking system will protect and waterproof your old and new exterior masonry surfaces whether they be above-grade, below ground or in immersion.

Micro porous and odorless, ARCACEM POOL waterproof tanking system can be applied horizontally or vertically to the interior or exterior face of the surface on damp substrates (our waterproof tanking product actually uses the dampness of your substrate to strengthen and reinforce its bonding and waterproofing performance.

How To Apply

Instructions for use

ARCACEM POOL WATERPROOFING TANKING SYSTEM

Application conditions - Precautions:

Do not apply under direct hot sun or on hot surface. In the summer, apply in the morning.
Avoid application if strong wind and/or rain are present.
Do not apply ARCACEM POOL on frozen substrates or if freezing temperatures are forecast within 24 hours.

Surface preparation

Careful attention to the preparation of the surface is essential to guarantee bonding.
The surface must be clean, sound, and free of loose or friable materials.
Where the surface is dry or hot to touch, WET DOWN THE ENTIRE SURFACE BEFORE APPLICATION.

IMPORTANT : We highly recommend forming a fillet at the wall to floor junction before applying Arcacem. you can also use a mortar + ARCALATEX
This area is one of the most leak-prone areas of basements and the focal point of stress caused by movement and settlement. Concave fillets installed in the wall/floor junction won't eliminate all movement between the wall against the floor, but the stresses are spread over the area of the rounded out fillet, instead of being focused on the point of that 90° angle. Arcacem applies easier and better (no build-up in sharp angles) to the rounded off surface.

Product preparation

Pour the resin into a large container.
Stir in the powder slowly and progressively.
It takes a full minute for the mixture to start bonding (adding ARCACEM POOL from this point on will not pose a mixing problem).
Mix for 2 to 3 minutes, the paste should be of uniform colour, creamy in texture and homogeneous without lumps.
Let it sit a few minutes prior to application.
Use within 2 hours.

Application

We recommend applying the 1st coat with a cement brush.
The brush vibrating movement pushes the Arcacem deep into the substrate.
A trowel application may be done for the to coatif you desire a smooth finish.

Stir material thoroughly before application and periodically during application to maintain a homogeneous mixture throughout the application process.
Apply with a smoothing trowel, brush or roller or project mechanically.

ARCACEM POOL is applied in 2 coats minimum.
The 1st coat may be reinforced (firmly embedding the reinforcement fibreglass mesh ARCAFIBRE).
The 2nd coat is applied once the 1st has completely hardened (minimum 4 hours in optimal drying conditions).

1st coat : apply with a brush or a smoothing trowel (a brush is better as it creates a massaging effect which causes the product to penetrate deeply into the pores of the substrate). The coat should be approximately 2 to 3mm thick.
Apply the reinforcing fibreglass if necessary.
It may not be necessary to reinforce the entire surface but we highly recommend reinforcing the corners, cracks and joints.
Each strip of reinforcing mesh must overlap another by 5cm.

2nd coat: Apply ARCACEM POOL to cover the entire surface, approximately 1 to 2mm thick
3rd coat: If the substrate must resist high counter pressure (swimming pools), we recommend a 3rd coat - approximately 1 to 2mm thick.

Wet down the surface for the first coat only not between coats

Finish

ARCACEM POOL waterproof tanking system can be covered by a concrete screed or slab, tiling or a number of other top coatings.
It is possible to tint ARCACEM POOL with ARCACOLORS, maximum 3% of total weight. Not recommended for work subject to UV.

Storage

Store in unopened containers in a clean, dry area.
Keep material from freezing.
