NCS Extra Tough Waterproofing Membrane

NCS -Extra Tough Membrane is a uniquely blended polymer system designed to
install quickly with rapid drying, thus allowing soil replacement (backfill) or concrete
and tile or stone applications within 30 minutes. NCS Extra Tough is formulated
in 100% solid solution and comprised of specially blended Polyurea Resins
which result in substantial physical properties achieved in as little as 30 minutes
from initial application.

Once NCS Extra Tough is dry to the touch, soil, concrete, tile and stone can be
placed directly over the surface without negatively affecting the integrity of the
membrane. NCS Extra Tough is installed by spray, roller or brushing.

NCS Extra Tough is installed in thicknesses of 40–45 mils to as much as 125 mils
(please contact NCS for design specifications). NCS Extra Tough should incorporate
traditional drainage mats and or drainage systems as deemed necessary.

NCS Extra Tough is warranted to be free from manufacturing defects for a period of
10 years. Project specific warranties can be obtained by contacting NCS
representatives or approved applicators.

Installation of NCS Extra Tough can be affected if water is present on or in the substrate. It’s
important to ensure all surfaces are completely dry. Contact NCS for information on Primers
to displace moisture in the surface enhancing the overall adhesion NCS systems.

Typical tools for installation of NCS Extra Tough System.

Installation Concrete:
1. Remove all laitance and debris from any area receiving the NCS Extra Tough Waterproofing System.

2. Install NCS Primer (refer to NCS Data Sheets).

3. As soon as NCS Primer is tacky, install the NCS Extra Tough Waterproofing to desired thickness.

4. Allow the NCS Extra Tough to dry until tack free (usually 30 minutes).

5. Open to foot traffic or backfill within 30 minutes or when tack free.

Installation Wood:

1. Prepare all joints using NCS Crack Fill (refer to NCS Crack Fill Data Sheets).

2. Install NCS Primer (refer to NCS Primer Data Sheets).

3. As soon as NCS Primer is tacky, install NCS Extra Tough Waterproof Membrane to desired thickness.

4. Allow the NCS Extra Tough Waterproof Membrane to dry until dry to the touch and no tackiness is felt.

5. Allow to dry one hour before foot traffic.

1. Product and Company Identification
Product Name: NCS (NexAmine) 6000-UVS
Chemical Family: Aspartic Ester

2. Hazards Identification
Emergency Overview
CAUTION!     Color: Yellow     Form: Liquid     Odor: Slight.
Toxic gases/fumes are given off during burning or thermal decomposition and may cause allergic skin and respiratory reaction. Use cold water spray to cool fire-exposed containers to minimize the risk of rupture. May cause
respiratory tract irritation.

Potential Health Effects
Primary Routes of Entry: Skin Contact, Eye Contact, Ingestion, Inhalation

Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure:
Skin disorders, Respiratory disorders, Eye disorders

Inhalation-Acute Inhalation
Inhalation is unlikely due to the low vapor pressure. If misted or handled at elevated temperatures, high concentrations may cause respiratory tract irritation.

Skin-Acute Skin
Based on materials with similar chemical structures Not expected to be irritating. Not expected to be a skin sensitizer.

Eye-Acute Eye
Based on materials with similar chemical structures Not expected to be irritating.

Ingestion-Acute Ingestion
For Component: Aliphatic Carboxylic Ester
May be harmful if swallowed.

General Effects of Exposure-Chronic Effects of Exposure
No applicable information was found concerning any adverse chronic health effects from overexposure to
this product. Repeated or prolonged overexposure may cause effects as noted under acute health effects.

No Carcinogenic substances as defined by IARC, NTP and/or OSHA

4. First Aid Measures
Eye Contact
In case of contact, flush eyes with plenty of lukewarm water. Get medical attention if irritation develops.

Skin Contact

In case of skin contact, wash affected areas with soap and water. Immediately remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention if irritation develops.

If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention if irritation develops.

Do not induce vomiting. If conscious, give 2 glasses of water. Get immediate medical attention.

5. Fire-Fighting Measures
Suitable Extinguishing Media: All extinguishing media are suitable.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Firefighters should be equipped with self-contained breathing apparatus to protect against potentially toxic and irritating fumes. Use cold water spray to cool fire-exposed containers to
minimize risk of rupture.

Unusual Fire/Explosion Hazards:
Toxic and irritating gases/fumes may be given off during burning or thermal decomposition.

6. Accidental Release Measures
Spill and Leak Procedures: Cleanup personnel must use appropriate personal protective equipment. Cover spill with inert material (e.g., dry sand or earth) and collect for proper disposal. Prevent from entering open drains and waterways.

Evacuate and keep unnecessary people out of spill area. Ventilate area to remove vapors or dust.

7. Handling and Storage
Storage Temperature:

8. Exposure Controls / Personal Protection
Country specific exposure limits have not been established or are not applicable.

Industrial Hygiene/Ventilation Measures
General dilution and local exhaust as necessary to control airborne vapors, mists, dusts and thermal decomposition products below appropriate airborne concentration standards/guidelines. Curing ovens must be ventilated to prevent the build up of explosive atmospheres and to prevent off gases from entering the work place.

Respiratory Protection
In spray applications, an organic vapor/particulate respirator or air supplied unit is necessary., The use of a positive pressure supplied air respirator is recommended if the airborne concentration is unknown or if spraying is performed in a confined space or area with limited ventilation.

Hand Protection
Permeation resistant gloves.

Eye Protection
Chemical safety goggles or safety glasses with side-shields.

Skin and body protection
Wear cloth work clothing including long pants and long-sleeved shirts.

Additional Protective Measures
