Mapei Mapelastic AquaDefense is easy to apply using a long-haired roller, brush or trowel on horizontal, sloping and vertical surfaces. It dries very quickly to form a flexible sheath without a sticky surface. It is resistant to light pedestrian traffic after just 3 hours and forms an excellent grip with all types of adhesive for laying ceramic, stone material and mosaic of all kinds.
The flexible nature of the product helps it withstand normal movements caused by expansion and shrinkage of the substrate due to temperature variations and vibration. Tiles laid on floors waterproofed with Mapei Mapelastic AquaDefense by using C2F-class MAPEI adhesives (such as Mapei Granirapid, Mapei Elastorapid, etc.) and grouted with Mapei Ultracolor Plus may be opened to pedestrian traffic within only 12 hours of starting the work.
