TRANSPARENT WATERPROOFING SYSTEM ARCACLEAR


ARCACLEAR SYSTEM TRANSPARENT WATERPROOFING MEMBRANE 

 

The Arcaclear system is deal for waterproofing over tiled terraces, glass or glass brick, mosaics.

 

A transparent liquid waterproofing system, ARCACLEAR is a mono-component aliphatic polyurethane transparent membrane.  

A high-technology waterproof membrane, ARCACLEAR is a non-yellowing, alkali and UV resistant waterproof coating with long-lasting transparency and elasticity. Even after ageing ARCACLEAR will protect your building materials from the elements, water ingress, freezing, pollution and acid rain.

The Arcaclear product range includes a choice of primers and finishes that guarantee the performance and perenity of the membrane. The composition of your kit will depend on:

(1) the quantity and frequency of foot  traffic on the surface

(2) the nature of your surface («non-pourous» or «porous»)  

(3) the finished look you wish to obtain (shiny or matte)

        (4) the surface area to be covered 

  The kits are pre-packaged to include all the products (and quantities necessary) you will need to apply your waterproof membrane - from primer to finish -  to guarantee the long-lasting performance and finished look of your transparent waterproof membrane.

ARCACLEAR is used to obtain: 

  • a transparent waterproof membrane for balconies and terraces

  • a transparent waterproof membrane over ceramic tiles

  • a transparent waterproof membrane over stone tiling

  • a transparent waterproof membrane over wood decks

  • a transparent waterproof membrane over transparent plastics (polyacrylate, polycarbonate)

  • a transparent waterproof membrane over glass and glass brick


The Arcaclear system comes in 2 kit sizes: to cover 5m² or 10m².

Each kit is pre-packaged to include all the products (and quantities necessary) to treat the surface area of your choice.

To place your order:

 

 

Open the TRAFFIC  window and click on the type of foot traffic expected on the surface.

 

Open the SIZE window and click on the kit size you'll require (your surface area). 

 

Open the FINISH window and click on the type of finish you desire: shiny or matte (see illustration below)

 

Open the SURFACE window and click on the nature of your surface.  Note: Typical non-porous surfaces are glass, ceramic or glazed tiles, laminated wood or varnished surfaces.  Most other surfaces are porous.

 

Open the quantity window and click on the number of kits you require to treat your surface area.  

 

For example, to cover 40 m², you would indicate a kit size of 10m² and click on "4" in quantity.

ARCACLEAR uses a unique moisture triggered curing system and unlike similar systems available, it does not form bubbles.

ARCACLEAR is also used as a transparent binding resin for sand or stone carpet exterior floor coatings binding decorative elements such as coloured quartz, small flat stones etc.  and waterproofing in one step.  As such it creates a decorative and protective coating for your balconies or terraces.  It can be rendered anti-grip.

 

ARCACLEAR binds and waterproofs porous wall and floor trowelled textures. Decorative elements such as coloured quartz or sand carpets can be added and are bound together leaving you with a decorative and waterproof surface.  ARCACLEAR protects all types of surfaces : wood - plastic - inorganic matter, and prevents carbonation and corrosion of concrete bars.

 

ARCACLEAR is transparent and therefore specially called for when waterproofing surfaces such as glass, glazed tiles, mosaics, ceramic tiles etc.  It is also used to renovate aged and porous thermoplastic surfaces which have hardened and cracked. (GFK, PMMA solid sheet, polycarbonates).

 Benefits  

  • Renders a transparent seamless 100% waterproof cover

  • Easy to apply (roller or airless spray)

  • permeable to water vapour (allowing the substrate to breathe)

  • Non-yellowing, UV resistant

  • can be applied over just about any building material where a transparent waterproof membrane is required (over tiling, glass, wood, etc.)

  • maintains mechanical properties at extreme temperatures (-30°C to +90°C)

  • Resistance to water and frost

  • Shiny or matte finish

   


 

Instructions for use ARCACLEAR TRANSPARENT WATERPROOFING:

 

Application conditions

  • Do not apply ARCACLEAR on surfaces treated with active silane, siloxane, silcon or other water repellents.

  • Do not apply if it is raining or snowing or if rain or snow are forecast with a 48-hour delay.

  • The moisture content of the surface must not exceed 5%.


Important:  The ARCACLEAR transparent waterproofing system will cure well under normal climatic conditions (5-35° C, dry weather).  
Lower temperatures will slow down curing time and higher temperatures will accelerate the curing time.  

  

Surface preparation

Optimum performance is achieved by using the right combination of products, surface preparation and application procedures.  Careful attention to the preparation of the surface is essential. 

  • Surfaces to be coated must be dry, clean, sound and free of all contaminants, loose particles, dirt and dust.

  • Surfaces with trapped moisture (under tiling for instance) must be left to dry thoroughly before application. 

  • New concrete must be left to dry at least 28 days before applying the ARCACLEAR system.

  • Glass and glazed surfaces must be primed ARCACLEAR P1 - PRIMER for non-porous surfaces.

 

Repair Cracks and Joints before application

The careful and thorough repairing of cracks is important to ensure long-lasting waterproofing of the surface.  Clean all concrete cracks, hairline cracks, expansion joints etc.of dirt, dust and loose particles. Use a polyurethane mastic to seal.

All internal angles must be reinforced with ARCAMESH (embedded between 2 coats of ARCACLEAR). 

 

Application

 

(1) ARCACLEAR PRIMER

Follow the instructions on the product data sheet corresponding to the primer you choose:

ARCACLEAR P1 - PRIMER for porous surfaces     or    ARCACLEAR P2  - PRIMER for non-porous surfaces

 

(2) ARCACLEAR RESIN

 

A minimum coverage rate  of 1 kg/m² in 1 to 3 coats is necessary to obtain a dry film no more than 1mm thick.

  • Using a roller or a tooth or serrated trowel, apply the 1st coat, covering the entire surface area.  Note: We recommend using a serrated trowel (which most often permits an easily applied and sufficient 1-coat application)

  • Let dry 12(minimum) to 18 hours (maximum) and apply the 2nd coat 

The ARCACLEAR will dry to a shiny glazed finish.  If you wish to obtain a matte finish, choose "matte" which will include ARCACLEAR FINISH in your kit.

 

(3) ARCACLEAR FINISHES

ARCACLEAR FINISH is a transparent polyurethane coating which will leave your surface treated with ARCACLEAR with a matte finish.  To obtain the matte finish, respect a coverage  rate of  0,1 kg/m² . The last coat of ARCACLEAR must have dried a minimum 12 hours and a maximum of 18 hours before applying ARCACLEAR FINISH  Apply with a roller or tooth or serrated trowel.

ARCATRAFFIC will give you a finish to render your transparent waterproofing membrane resistant to foot traffic.  It also includes corundum white which, when incorporated in Arcatraffic, makes your surface anti-slip.

 


Drying time  

See product data sheets for the various drying times.  For Arcaclear resin: 2 to 6 hours.

Recoatable: 12 hours minimum, 18 hours maximum between coats.

  

Coverage

Each kit is pre-packaged to waterproof a surface area of 5m² or 10m².

 

Clean up  

acetone – xylène
