Torprufe™ EMF is an elastomeric water-based acrylic coating system. It has been designed for high performance decoration and protection of external masonry, including cement, concrete and cementitious renders, giving a matt, opaque finish.
Example of a system for bare render or concrete:
Tor Water Based Stabilising Sealer (EM319).
2nd & 3rd Coat
Torprufe™ EMF (EM322).
Designed for the high performance protection of all types of external masonry, cement, concrete and cementitious renders.
Ensure all areas are clean, sound, dry and free from oil, dust, grease, grime, laitance and other surface contamination. Remove moss, algae, etc. and treat surfaces with
Torkill Fungicidal Solution (DM405).
Scrub down all weathered surfaces to remove salts, etc. Remove semi-adherent matter, etc. to a firm edge. Repair large holes and cracks using a suitable cementitious mortar.
Bare render, concrete, etc:
Prime porous or friable areas with Torprufe™ WB Stabilising Sealer (RC251) and tight surfaces with a wash coat of Torprufe™ EMF (EM322) (approx. 10-20% water addition). Apply 2 full coats of Torprufe™ EMF (EM322) by brush or roller*.
Previously painted surfaces:
Thoroughly abrade any hard or glossy surfaces and if necessary prime with Aqualife™ TP WSE Primer (E131 31) to promote maximum adhesion. Spot seal any friable or porous areas with Torprufe™ W13 Stabilising Sealer (RC251). Apply a wash coat of Torprufe™ EMF (EM322) (approx. 10-20% water addition) to any heavily weathered sound unprimed areas. Apply 2 full coats of Torprufe™ EMF (EM322) by brush or roller*.
*Single coat high build application at double thickness by airless spray is also possible.
