An elastomeric, cement based waterproof coating for concrete and masonry
MasterSeal 588 powder is a blend of Portland
cements, selected silica sands and modifying
agents. When mixed to a slurry consistency with
MasterSeal 588 liquid, an acrylic polymer
emulsion, it can be easily applied by brush or
roller. It cures to give an elastomeric flexible
MasterSeal 588 must be reinforced with mesh
across all construction joints and cracks. The
reinforcing mesh may be either 100% virgin
polypropylene or MasterSeal 958, an alkali
resistant glass-fibre mesh depending on which
particular enhanced tensile properties are required,
please consult your local BASF Technical Service
Representative for further advice on the correct
selection of mesh.
