Elastomeric & Decorative acrylic waterproof- ing coating for exterior walls
Provides a high quality effective waterproofing cum decorative coating for exterior wall.
Prevents dampness of external wall subjected to severe weather in coastal environment.
Ideally suitable for coating on all type of external masonry surfaces, concrete, cement sand renderings etc.
High build film - Higher film thickness provides tough
waterproof membrane ensuring no ingress of water with-
-standing wind driven rain.
Highly flexible - Accommodates movement in the structure
covers hairline cracks(upto 0.5 mm). Elongation - Easily accomodates movement of thermal expansion & contraction.100% elongation at 110-120 micron DFT crack bridging in excess of 0.5mm. Ready to use – Dilution is not required.
UV stability – Resistance to UV rays.
Anti dirt – low dirt pick up & can be cleaned easily.
Breathability – Allow internal moisture to escape.
Ease of application – User friendly product, easily applicable by brush, roller or spray.
Nitocote Wall Guard is water based polymer coating composed of high quality acrylic polymer, with weather resistant pigments, properly selected & graded fine fillers. It is used as a waterproofing & decorative coating for
protection of exterior walls of the buildings from heavy wind driven rain.Specification Clause:
Waterproof coating for external masonry/rcc walls shall be
Nitocote Wall Guard an acrylic water based elastomeric
& decorative coating applied at 110 micron DFT
in two coats as per manufacturer specification.
Coating shall be UV resistant, breathable & flexible having
minimum 100% elongation when applied at 110 micron DFT.
All surface should be dry and free from contamination such as oil, grease, loose particles, decayed matter, moss, algae growth, laitance, and all traces of mould release oils and curing com- pounds. Where moss, algae or similar growths have occurred, treatment with a proprietary biocide should be carried out.
Note : It is not necessary to remove Fosroc’s Nitobond AR curing membrane prior to the application of Nitocote Wall Guard provided the adhesion to the substrate is excellent. Where application over existing sound coatings is required, trials should be conducted to ensure compatibility and re- tention of the bond between the underlying coating and the substrate.For further advice, consult Fosroc. It is essential to produce an unbroken coating of Nitocote Wall Guard. To ensure this is achieved, surfaces containing blow holes or similar areas of pitting should first be filled using a suitable cementitious fairing coat like Renderoc FC or Acrylic fairing coat like Nitocote Putty ( for further details, refer to Fosroc). The cementitious fairing coat should be allowed to cure forabout 48 hours depending on ambient conditions prior to
application of Nitocote Wall Guard.
The contents of Nitocote Wall Guard shall be thoroughly stirred for atleast 2 minutes using a slow speed (300 - 400 RPM) drill machine attached with a mixing paddle.
Apply Nitocote Wall Guard with a nylon brush, or a felt roller,
to the prepared substrate. Allow Nitocote Wall Guard first
coat to dry for 5-6 hours at 300C and then apply the second coat. In order to obtain the waterproof properties of the Nitocote Wall Guard, it is important that the correct rates of application
and over coating time are observed. Nitocote Wall Guard shall
be applied at theoretical application rate 3 to 3.5 m / litres for
2 coats. Application should not commence if the temperature of the substrate is below 10oC.
