Cold Weather Alpha Dry Base Coat
Dry-mix polymer adhesive and base coat for use with Senergy Wall Systems during colder weather (35–50
|Temperature specific||Use when ambient temperature is between 35–50 °F|
|Fast set adhesive and base coat||EPS and base coat same day application|
|Dry, bagged product||Does not require heated shipping or storage, just add water to mix|
|Mix only what you need||Use for small repairs, reduces dumpster and landfill costs of pail disposal|
|Lower cement-to-polymer ratio||Reduces the chance for efflorescence|
|Smooth, creamy consistency||Trowels easily, speeds mesh embedment, reduces applicator arm fatigue, increases job-site productivity|
|Water based||Safe, non-toxic, clean up easily with soap and water|
