Project: Matacryl Carpark Application

Matacryl Carpark Application: Great North Road
Equus Certified Applicator: Solid Floors Ltd
Location: Great North Road, Auckland

The Project: This project reference on Great North Road shows an existing concrete carpark above a new government premises. The below building was getting a major renovation to combine a few retail shops into one space, and the above carpark was extensively cracked, in need of an extremely durable waterproofing system to protect the below premises. Solid Floors worked with the client/builder to undertake the Matacryl application work in sections of the carpark as they became available.

Why Choose Matacryl Carpark System? The Matacryl Carpark system was chosen for this project for its extreme durability, high impact and puncture resistance, and flexible crack-bridging abilities. The system was also a great choice for the building owner as it has a rapid curing time, allowing for minimal disruption to the site and businesses below.

What is the Matacryl Carpark System? A liquid applied elastomeric waterproofing membrane designed to waterproof and protect concrete carpark decks. The system is designed for easy application and easy maintenance with an integrated non-skid surface profile for traffic. The cured system is a very flexible crack-bridging membrane that retains its flexibility and crack-bridging performance in service even in low temperatures.

The Matacryl Carpark System is a multi-layer application. It comprises of medium viscosity, urethane-modified, pre-reacted 100% solid liquid membrane resins based on acrylic monomers.

Key System Benefits:

  • Highly flexible membrane
  • Excellent waterproofing properties
  • High impact and puncture resistance
  • Withstands stress and movements in the substrate
  • Excellent adhesion to many types of substrate
  • Good chemical and abrasion resistance
  • Easy to apply using a roller or a squeegee
  • Can be applied over a wide range of ambient and substrate temperatures (-10°C to +35°C)
  • Can easily be repaired; excellent inter-layer adhesion due to chemical bonding
  • Fully cured one hour after application
