Standard Application Rate: 240 sq. ft. per gal on concrete, wood, block, brick, stone/mortar as well as other standard building materials. Approximately 300 sq. ft. per gal when applied to steel, aluminum, cast iron, fiberglass and most non-porous materials. After application and cure, PermaFlex leaves a thick layer of smooth rubber approximately four times the thickness of a household garbage bag, (2 coats - approx 14 mils thick).
SANI-TRED PermaFlex is a single component (1 part), liquid rubber "ULTRA ADHESIVE" paint-like coating. After cure, there is little resemblance to paint. PermaFlex is a paint replacement product, self-priming, easy to use, easy to apply and cures reliably even in extremely cold temperatures. A good analogy of PermaFlex is "a roll on, seamless, flexible liner that bonds permanently to the surface and beneath the surface". PermaFlex bonds permanently to most all standard building materials. PermaFlex molecularly welds to previous applications of PermaFlex, LRB and LRB/TAV mixture. PermaFlex can be brushed, rolled or even sprayed (air assist).
If solid cured PermaFlex could be removed from its applied surface, it would be in the form of extremely pliable sheets that may be pulled, stretched, twisted and when released it will reliably return to its original size/shape.
The photos below shows a high quality concrete patio block which was coated on one side with PermaFlex that has been tinted red to allow better visual detection of the Flexible Penetration® process. The block was then broken in half to show it's internal cross section. Notice the penetration of the red PermaFlex throughout the entire block!
PermaFlex Deep Penetration "Like O-ring fingers" Seen Here Penetrating About 1-1/2”
The unique adhesive and penetrative properties of PermaFlex allow SANI-TRED to provide a complete water tight flexible vapor barrier above and within the surface as though it is one seamless application. This vapor barrier eliminates exterior humidity and problem radon by stopping water, moisture, vapor and problem radon from migrating through foundation walls and floors due to negative hydrostatic pressure and/or moisture vapor drive. Basically it is impossible for PermaFlex to bubble, chip, peel or delaminate from the substrate.
PermaFlex was originally designed and used as a heavy duty, hard wearing, exterior, commercial/industrial floor coating. This allows PermaFlex to be used where complete waterproofing and extremely heavy traffic usage is expected. Sani-Tred products are even rated for vehicle traffic! PermaFlex is so tough it may be regularly cleaned with hot water, high pressure washing.
