The Dekguard E2000 system comprises a single component penetrating primer and a single component elastomeric pigmented coating, both ready for immediate site use. The system is available with a choice of priming systems, i.e. Nitobond AR or Nitoprime DG. Nitoprime DG, a film forming stabilising primer may be utilised when chloride resistance is of primary importance. Nitoprime DG is supplied as a clear liquid and is based on an acrylic resin and a silane-siloxane dissolved in a penetrating organic carrier. The primer is reactive and capable of producing a chemically-bound hydrophobic barrier, thus inhibiting the passage of water and waterbourne contaminants. A thin surface film is produced which consolidates and stabilises porous substances.
Nitobond AR may be used where chloride resistance is of secondary importance to carbonation resistance.
