Miracote Coating: Liquid Catalyst 5 Gal
Miracote Catalyst MPC (Multipurpose Protective Coating) is a polymerized, two component, cementitious protective coating that can be applied over a variety of surfaces including concrete, masonry, metal, wood and tile. It consists of a unique rubber-like polymer liquid that is mixed with a proprietary cement and aggregate blend. Miracote MPC is then applied in two or more coats by trowel, brush, roller, spray or squeegee to a typical thickness of 1/16″ (16mm). Designed for both exterior and interior use, Miracote MPC restores and protects concrete surfaces from the consequences of exposure to water and chloride intrusion, freeze thaw damage and carbonation. Miracote MPC is an extremely durable, cost-effective protective coating that is “breathable” and allows for the transmission of inherent moisture vapor within concrete without blistering or de-lamination. By lowering moisture content within the concrete, Miracote Catalyst MPC helps reduce the potential for corrosion of steel reinforcement.Questions? Contact us
Where to Use
Concrete Restoration and Protection projects – Resurfacing new concrete slabs that are flawed or discolored – Parking decks, columns, walls and ceilings – Bridge Parapets and Abutments – Renovations to Stadiums and Arenas – Resurfacing of balconies and breezeways – Driveway and sidewalk resurfacing – Pool decks and patios – Building entrances and stairs – Concrete and masonry water tank linings – Decorative floor finishes and microtoppings.
• Expect reflection of dynamic cracks and control joints in substrate. Implement detail as per current published installation guidelines (IG’s).
• Staining, streaking and efflorescence may occur when fresh coating is exposed to excessive ponding or running water.
• As with all cement-based materials, avoid any contact with aluminum which can cause an adverse reaction due to Miracote MPC’s cementitious content. If unavoidable, prime aluminum with MiraPrime Membrane B.
• Concrete structures or elements containing hydrophobic crystalline admixtures may result in substrates that will be difficult to produce acceptable adhesion. Perform in-situ pull-off testing to verify suitable and measurable tensile bond strengths.
• Use extreme caution when resurfacing scaled concrete surfaces in freeze-thaw zones due to the potential for insufficient air-entrainment. These types of unsound surfaces may continue to scale at the bond line due to migration of ground moisture.
• Reported product technical data published in this document is based on controlled laboratory tests conducted in controlled conditions. Actual field installed properties may vary due to climatic conditions, mixing and application methods, equipment, application and curing conditions, and independent test methods.
• After a heavy, pro-longed downpour or following pressure-washing operations concrete substrates should be allowed to sufficiently vacate excess moisture prior to proceeding with the application.
