Flexible two-component, Bituminous,
Plastic protective material
Plastikol provides a flexible, waterproof coating. It can be easily prepared and after mixing has a pot life about 1-2 hours at +20°C. After curing, the material is tough, flexible and resistant to earth movement and shaking.
- Resistant to water, salts, alkalis and most aggressive materials.
- Resistant to corrosive agents of soil and wastewater
- Resistant to temperature changes
- Can be diluted by water
Plastikol is suitable as a waterproof, flexible layer with or without imbedded fiber reinforcement for concrete, screed or fully jointed masonry, in foundations, basements, shafts, containers, basement, garages, tunnels, etc

Plastikol must be applied on clean, firm backings. Non-absorbent surfaces may be dry or damp. Absorbent surfaces must be moistened before application. It is not suitable for use on zinc and aluminum.
Preparation of material:
First stir the liquid then shake the entire quantity of powder into the liquid. Both components are stirred using a mixer machine by 400-700 rpm and at least 450 watts. During consolidation stirring must continue.
For preparation of smaller mixes use 1 part by volume powder to 3 parts by volume liquid. Mixing is also possible at high outside temperatures, but temperature of the material during preparation must not exceed +30°c and not be less than +5°c. material which is too warm should be cooled down in a water bath, when necessary.
Do not leave the container exposed to sun or in high temperature, since heat accelerates setting.
Working time 1-2 hours, according to outside temperature. Stirring paddles and tools must be rinsed in a water bath immediately after use to prevent the material sticking.
The application of the entire thickness of the insulating layer is done in one operation with a glazing trowel, brush or spray. For fairly large surfaces where there is a risk of cracking, insertion of a bed of acrylic/PP fiber or glass wool reinforcement to obtain uniform layers of greater thickness is recommended. Apply 2-3 mm of Plastikol, then acrylic fiber or glass wool on top with an overlap of about 2 cm and then apply the remainder of the Plastikol. The total amount of Plastikol applied should be 4-6 Kg/m2.
The material should not be exposed to frost before setting. Application to frozen backings is not possible. Avoid direct sun light during application.
Plastikol liquid solidifies in frosty conditions; therefore the emulsion should be protected from the frost and stored in frost-free conditions.
