PCT X-TREME
HYDROPHOBIC PENETRATING CHEMICAL TREATMENT FOR NEW PLASTER.
 
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
PCT X-TREME is a semi-viscous white topical and penetrating chemical treatment for new and aged plaster by brush or roller application.
 
PRODUCT FEATURES
PCT X-TREMEis an all-weather chemical treatment for new and aged concrete and plaster. During application the product enters into inherent capillaries of the substrate where it reacts with Calcium Hydroxide and in the presence of Carbons and Oxygen an insoluble Hydrophobic crystalline structure is formed whilst at the same time forming a flexible skin on the surface.
A newly plastered surface may be treated after 24 hours.
Paint failures due to water ingress is unable to occur.
A supporting product to manage inherent water and moisture in cementitious capillary structures thus preventing paint failures.
 
PRODUCT BENEFITS
Prevents ingress of water or moisture.
No more paint failures due to the destructive properties of water.
Quick drying.
Water based, contains no toxic solvents.
Application of primers and undercoats is not necessary.
Will accept any paint.
Hairline crack formation typical with new plaster is significantly reduced.
Opacity is enhanced due to the white colour.
TYPICAL SUBSTRATES
New or aged plaster.

APPLICATION DETAILS
During application of a cement plaster mix in accordance with approved building practice and procedures and atmospheric conditions 25°C and 30% relative humidity moisture is released into the atmosphere and after approximately 24 hours the surface is suitable for treatment.
The surface texture has formed and will not be disturbed by application of PCT X-Treme.
 
Apply by brush or roller and ensure that the surface is saturated.
 
After 30 minutes thoroughly inspect the surface to ensure that no pin-holes are evident. If pin-holes are observed, patch prime these areas.
 
Pin-holes indicate underlying capillaries and if not sealed, water or moisture will enter and lead to paint failure.
Leave to cure for 24hours before painting.
SURFACES TREATED WITH PCT X-TREME  NEEDS TO BE COATED WITH PAINT WITHIN 2-3 MONTHS.
 
CLEANING OF EQUIPMENT
Use potable water
