Application Information
Instructions for use

Surface preparation

All surfaces where the ARMOFLEX is to be applied must be smooth, clean, and free from dust, laitance or loose materials. When otherwise necessary, it is highly recommended to use compressed air or a wire brush in order to remove further dirt, oil stains and other inconsistencies.

Application

For waterproofing

Use a smooth trowel, roller or brush to apply the first coat of waterproofing product on the surface. Immediately lay ARMOFLEX along the surface while it is still fresh. Make sure to embed the mesh completely by gently pressing the product with the help of a trowel or roller. Apply the second layer of the waterproofing product after the first layer is totally dry (approximately 12 to 24 hours).

When joining the ARMOFLEX mesh together, be sure to keep an overlap of at least 5 to 10 cm.

For plastering

For plaster application, apply one coat of plastering product on the walls with a thickness as recommended in the data sheets. While the plaster is still wet, apply ARMOFLEX fibre mesh and imbed inside the plaster. Trowel the surface until the mesh is fully covered. When needed, apply the second layer of plaster to achieve the required thickness.

ARMOFLEX is available in four different grades. Refer to the technical properties table provided below.

When ARMOFLEX is to be used in conjunction with other COLMEF products, make sure to follow the recommended method of application for each product by referring always to the Technical Data Sheet.

Cleaning

Tools and equipment should be cleaned with water immediately after use. Hardened materials should be mechanically removed.
