cracks & joints

Cracks not only ruin the look of your home, they weaken structures and let the dampness in. Tackle trouble with cracks with our Smart Care range of waterproofing products. 

 

 

gaps/joints between surfaces

In building construction, the place where two surfaces meet is called a joint. These surfaces can be of the same material e.g. joints between glass panes or different material e.g. joints between glass sills & metal window frames. When a space is left between these two surfaces, it is called a gap. If not treated with an appropriate sealant, they may eventually cause waterproofing problems.

smartcare unyverseal

Asian Paints SmartCare UnyverSeal is a durable and odourless neutral silicone sealant for sealing of glass, building and sanitary joints. UnyverSeal is a non acetoxy elastic sealant based on high quality polysiloxanes which cures with atmospheric moisture to form a durable seal.

leakage through gaps & joints which requires painting over

In constructions, spaces need to be created to fit window frames, doors etc. If the space created is greater than the actual size of the fitting, it results in gaps. If not treated with an appropriate sealant, they may eventually cause waterproofing problems.

smartcare akrylmax

Asian Paints SmartCare AkrylMax is an acrylic emulsion based plastic elastic sealant for sealing masonry joints that can be top coated with a water-based paint. The product after evaporation forms a soft plastic elastic rubber and is applicable on interiors and exteriors.

spider web like cracks on painted surface

Cracks appear on interior walls due to shrinkage, wrong cement:sand ratio during construction or vibrations arising due to temperature variations

smartcare crackshield

Crackshield is the only preventive crack solution available in India. It is a sheet of glass fibre which is applied between primer coatings to prevent spider web like hairline cracks from appearing on interior painted walls. Typically, the most noticeable or highlighted wall of a room should be protected against hairline cracks using this product to preserve the beauty of that wall for a longer period of time.

plaster cracks up to 3mm in interior/exterior walls

Cracks appear on walls due to shrinkage or vibrations arising due to temperature variations.

smartcare crack seal

Crack Seal is a paste like material used to fill cracks upto 3 mm wide on interior or exterior walls. It is a flexible product and absorbs movements in the crack. Hence it is a long lasting solution against such cracks. Care should be taken not to fill cracks using putty or cement as these material don't have any flexibility after drying and the crack will definitely reappear shortly. Crack Seal is a paintable product.

plaster cracks up to 10mm on exterior walls

Exterior cracks are usually subject to severe weathering over period of time and suffer more thermal movements. As such, sometimes they are wider than interior cracks and require a more flexible solution.

smartcare textured crack filler

Texture Crack Filler is a one of its kind, flexible crack solution for exterior cracks upto 10 mm wide. This product has a texture which matches the natural roughness of a normal Indian exterior wall. This ensures that post filling the crack and painting it over, the repair mark is negligible. This mark would be quite clearly visible if you fill the crack using any smooth crack filler or other materials like putty or cement and spoil the beauty of your exterior walls.

plaster cracks on textured or rough surfaces

Exterior surfaces tend to be quite rough unlike interior walls. Any crack filling done using smooth products on such surfaces stands out and ruins the décor of exterior surfaces. It requires a product which apart from being strong & flexible, can match the typical roughness of Indian exterior surfaces.

structural cracks on walls or load bearing areas

Structural cracks typically appear due to weakening of the load bearing parts in the structure through ingress of water. They may also occur due to incorrect design, faulty construction or overloading. Since it may affect the safety of the building over lonng term, it is critical to treat them.

smartcare hybrid pu sealant

Asian Paints SmartCare Hybrid PU Sealant is a single component, moisture curing, low modulus silyl terminated polyurethane sealant for sealing of dynamic joints and cracks in interiors as well as exteriors. After curing, it forms a flexible rubber-type seal that is paintable.

expansion joints

An expansion joint is a design element which helps absorb temperature induced movement of construction material. They are commonly found between sections of buildings, bridges, sidewalks etc. If sealed using a low  quality product, water may seep through the joints.
