NaturaSeal specializes in post blending and marketing of instant-setting elastomer modified asphalt emulsion coatings that are environmentally and workplace safe. The company’s business concept is to supersede traditional asphalt based waterproofing membranes and solvent-based spray-applied coatings with its modified emulsion products. Naturaseal’s coatings are used to protect a wide variety of materials commonly used in, but not limited to; building construction, earthworks, as well as metal and concrete protection. These instantly setting, spray-applied coatings offer contractors a safer, faster and longer lasting water and/or corrosion barrier.
Asphalt, used in waterproof coating products, dates back centuries. Vast majority of it is applied at elevated temperatures to liquefy the asphalt hence enabling it to flow. Hot applied coatings can be single component asphalt, or combinations of asphalt and polymers to modify the specific physical properties. All hot applied systems have their inherent dangers, such as risk of fire and personal injury – concerns that have motivated many government agencies to restrict their use. Cold applied coatings use either solvents or water [emulsions] to enable fluidity and application at ambient temperature. Unlike our products, coatings using solvents release harmful VOCs into the environment and can be hazardous in the workplace. Consequently, the industry is moving aggressively to replace all solvent-based products. Naturaseal has an outstanding range of asphalt waterproof coatings based on water-borne technology that Naturaseal believes positions it in the forefront of this trend and advancing industry.
NaturaSeal products are targeted in the following construction market segments:
The roofing market – both as a waterproofing membrane for roof restoration and new construction Waterproofing ICI building foundations waterproofing concrete structures including waterways, dams and containment systems
