Roof Waterpoofing Coating
Roof waterproofing coating is very important. Roofs are not just visual features; they fulfill the crucial role of protection. Be it a classic flat roof or a dome roof, every roof structure has a unique character.Being the highest point in a building, they take a battering from the elements and leaking is common after a few years.MARIS POLYMERS offers liquid-applied Polyurethane waterproofing systems for roof coating with long-term protection for simple, detailed or complicated roof structures.The MARISEAL SYSTEM® is the technologically advanced,premium liquid polyurethane waterproofing system that offers easy application, full certifications, and most importantly guaranteed long lasting results.It can be used as a new flat roof coating, but also for repair or renewal. The MARISEAL SYSTEM® consists of different products, dependant on the roofs characteristics.
Liquid-applied polyurethane waterproofing membrane
MARISEAL® 250 FLASH is a premium, liquid-applied, semi- thixotropic, highly permanent elastic, cold applied and cold curing, one component polyurethane membrane used for long- lasting waterproofing.The MARISEAL® 250 FLASH is based on pure elastomeric hydrophobic polyurethane resins, which result in excellent mechanical, chemical, thermal, UV and natural element resistance properties.Cures by reaction with ground and air moisture.
Simple application (roller or airless spray).Semi-thixotropic (for use on sloped surfaces)When applied forms seamless membrane without joints.Resistant to water.Resistant to frost.Resistant to root penetration, so it can be used in green roofs.
Crack-bridging up to 2mm, even at -10oC.Provides water vapor permeability, so the surface can breathe.Provides excellent thermal resistance, it never turns soft.Provides excellent weather and UV resistance.Waterproofs old bitumen-, asphalt felts by covering them, without the need to remove them prior to application.Provides high sun reflectivity, contributing to thermoinsulation.Maintains its mechanical properties over a temperature span of-40oC to +90oC.Provides excellent adhesion to almost any type of surface. Resistant to detergents, oils, seawater and domestic chemicals. The waterproofed surface can be used for domestic and public pedestrian and vehicular traffic.Even if the membrane gets mechanically damaged, it can be easily repaired locally within minutes.Does not need the use of open flames (torch) during application.Over 15 years of positive feedback worldwide.

1,4 – 2,5 kg/m2 applied in two or three layers.
This coverage is based on application by roller onto a smooth surface in optimum conditions. Factors like surface porosity, temperature and application method can alter consumption.
The MARISEAL® 250 FLASH is supplied in white and light grey. Other colors may be supplied on demand.
The MARISEAL® 250 FLASH was tested by the German state testing institute for construction materials MPA-Braunschweig according the European Union Directive for liquid-applied roof waterproofing kits ETAG 005 and was found conforming.
The MARISEAL® 250 FLASH was certified by the German state Institute for construction techniques DIBt–Berlin with the European Technical Approval (ETA) and with the CE-mark and certification according to the EOTA (European Organization of Technical Approval).
The MARISEAL® 250 FLASH was also tested and approved by various laboratories in different countries around the world.
MARISEAL® 250 FLASH is supplied in 25 kg, 15 kg, 6 kg, 1kg metal pails and 250 FLASH kg Barrels. Pails should be stored in dry and cool rooms for up to 9 months. Protect the material against moisture and direct sunlight. Storage temperature: 50-300C. Products should remain in their original, unopened containers, bearing the manufacturers name, product designation, batch number and application precaution labels.
Careful surface preparation is essential for optimum finish and durability.The surface needs to be clean, dry and sound, free of any contamination, which may harmfully affect the adhesion of the membrane.Maximum moisture content should not exceed 5%. Substrate compressive strength should be at least 25MPa, cohesive bond strength at least 1.5MPa. New concrete structures need to dry for at least 28 days. Old, loose coatings, dirt, fats, oils, organic substances and dust need to be removed by a grinding machine. Possible surface irregularities need to be smoothened. Any loose surface pieces and grinding dust need to be thoroughly removed.
WARNING: Do not wash surface with water!
Repair of cracks and joints:
The careful sealing of existing cracks and joints before the application is extremely important for long lasting waterproofing results. Clean concrete cracks and hairline cracks, of dust, residue or other contamination. Prime locally with the MARISEAL® 710Primer and allow 2-3 hours to dry. Fill all prepared cracks with MARIFLEX® PU 30 sealant. Then apply a layer of MARISEAL®250 FLASH, 200mm wide centered over all cracks and while wet, cover with a correct cut stripe of the MARISEAL® Fabric. Press it to soak. Then saturate the MARISEAL® Fabric with enough MARISEAL® 250 FLASH, until it is fully covered. Allow 12 hours to cure.Clean concrete expansion joints and control joints of dust, residue or other contamination. Widen and deepen joints (cut open) ifnecessary. The prepared movement joint should have a depth of 10-15 mm. The width:depth ratio of the movement joint should be at a rate of approx. 2:1.
Apply some MARIFLEX® PU 30 Joint-Sealant on the bottom of the joint only. Then with a brush, apply a stripe layer of MARISEAL® 250 FLASH, 200mm wide centered over and inside the joint. Place the MARISEAL® Fabric over the wet coating and with a suitable tool, press it deep inside the joint, until it is soaked and the joint is fully covered from the inside. Then fully saturate the fabric with enough MARISEAL® 250 FLASH. Then place a polyethylene cord of the correct dimensions inside the joint and press it deep inside onto the saturated fabric. Fill the remaining free space of the joint with MARIFLEX® PU 30 sealant. Do not cover. Allow 12-18 hours to cure.
Prime absorbent surfaces like concrete, cement screed or wood with MARISEAL® 710 or with MARISEAL® AQUA PRIMER. Prime
surfaces like bitumen, asphaltfelts with MARISEAL® 730 or with MARISEAL® AQUA PRIMER. Prime non-absorbent surfaces like metal, ceramic tiles and old coatings with MARISEAL® AQUA PRIMER.
Stir well before using. Poor the MARISEAL® 250 FLASH onto the primed surface and lay it out by roller or brush, until all surface is
covered. You can use airless spray allowing a considerable saving of manpower.
After 12-18 hours (not later than 48 hours) apply another layer of the MARISEAL®250 FLASH.
For demanding applications, apply a third layer of the MARISEAL®250 FLASH.
Reinforce always with the MARISEAL® Fabric at problem areas, like wall-floor connections, 90o angles, chimneys, pipes, waterspouts (siphon), etc. In order to do that, apply on the still wet MARISEAL® 250 FLASH a correct cut piece of MARISEAL® Fabric, press it to soak, and saturate again with enough MARISEAL® 250 FLASH. For detailed application instructions with the MARISEAL® Fabric, contact our overlapping.R+D department.
If a color stable and chalking-free surface is desired, apply one or two layers of the MARISEAL® 400 Top-Coat over the MARISEAL®250 FLASH. The application of the MARISEAL® 400 Top-Coat, is especially required, if a dark final color, is desired. (e.g. red, grey, green)If a heavy duty, abrasion resistant surface is desired (e.g. Public Pedestrian Deck, Car Parking, etc), apply two layers of theMARISEAL® 420 Top-Coat.For the several Top-Coats application procedures, please consult their technical instructions or contact our R+D Department.
WARNING: The MARISEAL® system is slippery when wet. In order to avoid slipperiness during wet days, sprinkle suitable aggregates onto the still wet coating to create an anti-slip surface. Please contact our R+D Dept. for more details.
ATTENTION: Do not apply the MARISEAL® 250 FLASH over 0.6 mm thickness (dry film) per layer. For best results, the temperature
Low temperatures retard cure while high temperature speed up curing. High humidity may affect the final finish.
