Lion wiper is composed of high quality acrylic emulsion polymer, light fast & weather durable pigments, properly selected & graded fine fillers, many additives & water as a medium. It is used as a waterproofing & protective coating for exterior walls of the buildings because it forms higher film thickness, has excellent flexibility, breathing properties, water resistance, crack-bridging ability, weathering durability and an excellent resistance to the growth of microorganisms
Areas of Applications
All types of exterior masonry surfaces, concrete, cement sand renderings, etc.
Features & Benefits
Film thickness-Higher film thickness provides resistance to the movements of structures, gives crack bridging ability & waterproofing properties.
Flexibility-Flexible and covers hairline cracks(upto 0.5 mm) effectively so that no ingress of water.
Toughness-Tough films withstands wind driven rain.
Elasticity-High elasticity easily withstands stress caused by thermal expansion & contraction (>100% elongation at 100-110 micron DFT).
Ready to use-No dilution is required hence ensures desired film thickness built-up without affecting the performance.
Microbial resistance-Resistance to fungus and algae hence maintains the aesthetic value.
UV resistant-Resistance to UV (Sun light) hence coating has longer life. }Dirt pick up-Very low dirt pick up & can be cleaned easily hence maintains the aesthetics.
Breathability - Permeable to water vapour.
Ease of application -User friendly, easily applicable by brush, roller or spray.
Toxicity - It is Non-toxic.
Method of Application
1. Surface Preparation
All new cement-sand renderings /concrete surfaces should be allowed to age 6 to 8 weeks before surface coating.
Surface for treatment must be thoroughly cleaned of all laitance, loose material, oil, grease, etc. by mechanical means such as wire brushing & shot blasting .
Finally vacuum cleaning of all loose solids and liquids can be done, if required.
All surface cracks upto 5 mm width should be filled up with Lion crack seal. Cracks more than 5 mm and all separation gaps should be filled up with Lion Ultra Bond modified mortar or as specified.
Use Lion Wiper directly from the container. Stir contents well before use.
Apply two neat coats of Lion wiper without dilution by brush or roller at a time interval of 5-6 hours.
For enhanced protection, apply additional coat of Lion Wiper on rain lashing walls, chajjas and parapet walls.
Allow the coated surface to air cure fully for 7 days.
Precaution & Limitations
Do not dilute Lion Wiper.
Do not apply when ambient temperature is below 100C or above 450C.
Do not apply in direct sunlight or during rains.
Adhesion property may get affected over poor quality putty and very smooth surfaces.
As a waterproofing coating – Mix proportion by volume; 1:1.5 (Lion Ultra Bond : Cement)
As a mortar modifier – 10-15 % of Lion Ultra Bond by weight of cement
As a bonding agent – Mix proportion by volume; 1:1 (Lion Ultra Bond: Cement)
1 Ltr and 5 Ltr
3.0 to 3.5 m2 per litre for 2 coats*
*Coverage may vary depending upon the texture and porosity of the surface
Shelf Life & Storage
Shelf life is 18 months from the date of manufacturing in unopened conditions.
