Mapei, leading manufacturer of adhesives, sealants and products for building are delighted to launch the new Elastocolor system. As part of their expanding coatings product line, the new comprehensive coating system consists of Elastocolor Paint, Elastocolor Rasante, Elastocolor Rasante SF and Elastocolor Waterproof. All products are certified to EN 1504-2.
The Elastocolor range offers a complete system of elastomeric acrylic resin-based products suitable for use on concrete, reinforced surfaces and general cementitious substrates prone to cracking and damage, ideal for use in civil engineering, industrial and commercial environments.
Elastocolor Paint is a highly protective and decorative elastic paint with great flexibility and long lasting elasticity. Offering high resistance to water, chemicals and extreme weather conditions, it lends itself perfectly to protecting concrete structures from small deformations, protecting and decorating render with micro- cracks, and for protecting thin, pre-fabricated structures subject to cracking. It is ideal for use in building refurbishment due to its high covering and crack bridging formulation.
Elastocolor Rasante and Elastocolor Rasante SF are intermediate filling coats for the Elastocolor cycle. Whilst Elastocolor Rasante is a fibre-reinforced elastomeric coating offering high elasticity and is free of cements, Elastocolor Rasante SF is a ready-to-use, high thickness, fibre-reinforced, elastomeric coating with good elasticity and high filling properties. Ideal for new or repaired renders, concrete and old plastic coats, both products improve the bond of the substrate, providing flexibility for the Elastocolor finish.
To complete the system, Elastocolor Waterproof is an acrylic paint perfect for use where the substrate needs to be covered with a flexible protective coating due to direct contact with water. Suitable for indoor or outdoor structures such as swimming pools, water features or other structures in direct contact with water, it offers easy to clean properties, with resistance to water, chemicals and acid rain. It can also be used for protecting horizontal concrete surfaces against contact with rainwater, such as flat roofs in combination with cementitious waterproofers such as Mapei Mapelastic.
