How to apply weber.cote Brush Coat

In this section, you will find the suggested weber.cote Brush Coat application techniques.

Problem

Penetration of water through single skin brick/block work

Cement bricks - blocks are porous and will allow water to migrate through unless waterproofed. This leads to unhealthy living conditions as a result of mould growth and a moist interior environment.

weber.cote Brush Coat is designed to waterproof and colour in one coat.

Solution

Surface Preparation

  1. It is important to fill all holes and indentations in the brick work and mortar lines with weber.cote Brush Coat before application commences.
  2. Mix 4 volumes of weber.cote Brush Coat brush coat and 1 volume of water to a paste.
  3. Use this paste to fill the holes and indentations in the brick work and mortar lines. Scrape flush with the surface and leave to dry overnight.
  4. If the brick-work is flush jointed or the mortar has been pointed, it is not necessary to  perform the previous step.

Mixing

  1. Combine 1 bag of weber.cote Brush Coat and 5 litres of clean water. Stir thoroughly.
  2. The mixture should have a smooth, creamy consistency. A small amount of water may be added if necessary.
  3. Wet the brush and shake off excess water.

Application

  1. Dip the brush in the mixture and brush the wall liberally.
  2. Make sure to fill small holes and indentations.
  3. Coat the entire wall in one operation to avoid dry joints. Do not stop and start. Do not patch.
  4. Clean all windows, surrounds, etc.

Curing

  1. Leave overnight to air-cure.
  2. Wet the coated walls 3 times during the next day using clean water.
