Value Wallguard

A high-performance epoxy sealer with excellent adhesion that's effective when it comes to protection against efflorescence.

Value Wallguard is a high-performance two-pack solvent-based epoxy sealer, specially designed to eliminate or prolong efflorescence on concrete walls. It also has excellent adhesion over damp walls and is ideal for protecting concrete walls from efflorescence.

Features

Eliminates and prevents efflorescenceAdhesion on dry and damp surfaces
Finishes -Glossy

Surface preparation Remove any efflorescence. Sand the surface using emery paper no. 320 or lower.  Wipe the surface clean with cloth and remove loose dust. Mix the base and hardener in the recommended ratio, taking care to mix full quantities of both. Mix well for at least 1 minute.

Application procedure Use a nylon brush or roller recommended for the application of solvent based material. Do not use emulsion roller.
Take the mixed material and apply minimum of 2 - 3 coats, with an inter-coating interval of 10-15 minutes. Apply uniformly while avoiding sags and runs.Make sure the material is pushed through the pores, cracks and crevices of the wall. Use the mixed material within 40 minutes of mixing.

Solve Potential Paint Problems

1Why are there bubble-like bumps on my walls?

These bubble-like appearances are caused by blistering, which happens when certain areas lose adhesion, forcing the paint film to lift from the surface.

What are the possible causes?

  • Painting under direct sunlight or on surfaces that are too warm. This is especially true if the coating you’re using is dark in colour and solvent-based.
  • Applying an oil-based finish on a wet or moist surface
  • High humidity or conditions where moisture seeps out of exterior walls. This is less likely to occur if you’re using a water-based paint as it allows water vapour to evaporate without reacting on the paint film.
  • Exposing water-based finishes to dew, high humidity or rain immediately after the paint has dried. This becomes a greater issue if the surface has not been properly prepared at first, or if the quality of paint is poor.

How can I fix the problem?

  • Start by checking if the blisters go all the way down to the substrate. If they do, it may be due to moisture from within.
  • Remove sources of moisture. Repair loose caulk and install vents and exhaust fans wherever possible.
  • Scrape and sand blisters till they go away. Prime any exposed wood and repaint.
  • If the blisters are on the surface only, the problem is likely to be caused by painting on a warm surface or under direct sunlight. It could also be because the painted surface was exposed to moisture soon after painting. Do scrape and sand away the blisters in this case also.
  • Prime exposed wood and paint the wall with a high quality water-based exterior paint.

2I can see a crusty white powder on my walls. What is this?

These crusty white deposits, or efflorescence, are caused by salts leaching from the mortar or masonry as water passes through it.

What are the possible causes?

  • Not removing all traces of previous efflorescence while preparing surface for painting
  • Excessive moisture rising to the surface of the wall from within

How can I fix the problem?

  • Eliminate sources of moisture near the wall by fixing the roof, sealing cracks and cleaning gutters and downspouts. Use a good quality water-based acrylic or siliconised acrylic caulk.
  • If moist air is coming from within the building, especially from bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms, install vents and exhaust fans to minimize it.
  • To treat efflorescence, remove all traces of it first with a wire brush or powerwasher. Rinse surface thoroughly.
  • Apply a masonry sealer and once it is completely dry, coat with a high quality exterior paint.

3My paint is coming off in large ribbon like chunks. What’s happening?

Paint comes off spontaneously in sheets or ribbons. The peeling could be restricted to only the top coat, or involve subsequent layers of primer and undercoats too.

What are the possible causes?

  • Wood swelling because of seepage, rain, humidity or moisture from uncaulked joints, deteriorating caulk or leaking roof.
  • Excess humidity escaping from inside the home through exterior walls. This is less likely to happen with water-based paints, as they permit water vapour to escape without destroying the paint
  • Poor surface preparation before painting
  • Using poor quality paint with less adhesion and flexibility
  • Applying water-based finishes on very hot, cold or windy days
  • Applying oil-based finishes on wet or damp surfaces

How can I fix the problem?

  • Remove all sources of exterior moisture – carry out repairs and maintenance of caulking, roof, gutters etc. Remove moisture-trapping plants and vegetation.
  • If there is moisture indoors, install vents and exhaust fans or dehumidifiers if needed.
  • Scrape or brush away all loose paint. Sand rough surfaces and prime bare wood. Use a high quality water-based finish with high adhesion characteristics. This will also permit water vapour to escape without destroying the surface finish.
