Guarantee


A 5 year, 10 year or 15 year WONDERCOAT guarantee is issued on the completion of all coating work completed by ourselves. Based on general world wide experience on similar products, it is reasonable to expect a total life span of 15 - 20 years.

Material Properties

Elasticity

Whilst Wondercoat cures to a very hard surface, it simultaneously maintains a carefully pre-formulated elasticity in order that it may bridge subsequently hair-line cracking in the substrate.

Material Properties

Water resistance

Wondercoat acts as an osmotic membrane, whilst being completely waterproof on the outside, it allows any dampness from within the wall to escape as vapour.

Material Properties

Manufacture

Each ingredient is carefully scrutinised, tested and approved prior to mixing, in order to ensure the highest quality for our rigorous and diverse climatic conditions.
Wondercoat has a one way action by allowing any moisture, which may be in the substrate to “breath” through the treated surface and through the Permatex coating.

Step One

Canvas ground sheets are placed all the way around the property to ensure maximum cleanliness and as little mess as possible.

Step Two

All areas not to be coated will be masked off with heavy duty masking paper and masking tape to ensure neatness of application.

Step Three

All painted wall areas will be thoroughly cleaned down by means of electrically driven angle grinders using carborundum disc or wire-cupped brushes where necessary.

Step Four

All cracks are repaired with elasticized resin bound filler (WONDERFLEX) and coated with Wonderproof (Membrane free system). A fiberglass membrane will be used to repair all major cracks.

Step Five

Contaminated plaster will be chopped off and re-plastered.

Step Six

Pigmented Plaster Primer / Neutralizer will then be applied to weather-proof the walls and also neutralize any alkali (Lime) acids or salts present on the surface.

Step Seven

Finally the WONDERCOAT Coating System is applied, leaving an attractive and durable finish.

Step Eight

Professional supervision on site at all times.

Step Three

All painted wall areas will be thoroughly cleaned down mechanically by means of electrically driven angle grinder using carborundum discs or wire-cupped brushes where necessary.

Step Four

All cracks are repaired with elasticized bound filler (WONDERFLEX) and coated with Waterproof (Membrane free system). A fiberglass membrane will be used to repair all major cracks.

Step Five

Contaminated plaster will be chopped off and re-plastered.

Step Six

Pigmented plaster primer will be applied to weather-proof the walls and also neutralized and alkali (Lime) acids or salts present on surface.

Step Seven

A Membrane Free elasticized resin bound waterproofing emulsion is used to weatherproof exposed parapet walls.

Step Eight

Professional supervision on site at all times.


Dampproofing: Tanking - (Rising and lateral damp) - (Injection where needed only)

Step One

All damaged plaster will be chopped away and removed to bare brick. (The height of plaster to be removed will be determined by the height of rising damp +/- 300 mm above the contaminated plaster).

Step Two

Holes will be drilled 180mm deep and 120mm apart into existing mortar between external floor level brick work, where required.

Step Three

The holes are then injected with either Dry Zone cream or Microsilon creating a new chemical dampproof course (d.p.c) the holes are then plugged.

Step Four

Treat all exposed brick work in accordance with safeguard tanking specifications (SWS slurry mixed with Bondaid plus, a waterproofing additive and bonding agent 1:4) utilizing a two coat brush application, horizontally and vertically. This will create a damproof barrier and at the same time extracting the moisture from the brick work, protecting it from any further lateral damp.

Step Five

Re-plaster areas in accordance with safeguard specification using Rendergold Gold (Salt retardant and waterproofing agent) using a mixture 3:1 by volume, sand and cement plaster mix creating further protection. Plaster work will be matched as best as possible.

Step Six

Re-painting should follow +/- 6 weeks after completion or as soon as plaster work has sufficiently dried. (To be tested with moisture meter).

Step Seven

It is always recommended to use a high grade exterior coating system (e.g. Wondercoat) that will be able to withstand the high alkalinity of such a plaster and in addition be tolerant of the moisture and chemical present in the interface.


Step One

Surfaces will be cleaned before commencement.

Step Two

Preparation of the surface is accomplished by applying a suitable water or solvent-based bitumen primer which must be allowed to dry.

Step Three

The first roll is laid at the lowest part of the surface perpendicular to the direction of the slope.

Step Four

The membrane is heated with a gas torch, melting the polyethylene protective coating but without overheating the bitumen surface. It is then bonded to the substrate by applying downward pressure.

Step Five

The transverse overlaps of rolls should be approximately 10mm, with longitudinal overlaps of approximately 15mm. Such overlaps are “soldered” by partial fusion of membranes using the blunt, rounded end of a hot trowel.

Step Six

Great care is taken to ensure total adhesion to the underlying substrate. Any areas that are not properly fused can result in underlying air pockets which will expand and contract with the temperature variations and subsequently result in damage of the membrane. They will also facilitate the movement of moisture beneath the membrane causing difficulty in accurately pinpointing any leaks.

Step Seven

Once applied, the membrane is coated with two coats of bitumen aluminium paint to provide UV protection to the surface. Such protection should be renewed.


Step One

Surfaces will be cleaned before commencement.
