The COPROX® system for swimming pools
COPROX ® Fondo Piscine - is a mineral mortar wear-resistant that resolves problems related to the excess of moisture in the walls. It is inorganic and consists of air and hydraulic binders, selected siliceous aggregates and the active principle COPROX®. It’s distributed in premeasured packs, it’s ready to use and needs only the proper dilution with clean water. The action of mineral mortar COPROX® Fondo Piscine is linked to the presence of the active principle COPROX® that gives the mixture a very high water repellency with very high breathability.
COPROX® Finitura Piscine - is a mortar specific to complete the system COPROX® in all cases where it is expected to contain water or counterthrusting waterproofing. The mortar is composed of inorganic air binders, hydraulic binders and active principle COPROX®. It’s distributed in premeasured packs, it is ready to use and needs only the proper dilution with clean water.
La Pergola swimming pool and, in the background, the beautiful region of Umbria
In the images in these pages, the documentary evidence of the construction of a swimming pool, La Pergola, which is perfectly nested like a precious stone in the well-known and loved, in Italy and abroad, landscape of Umbria.
For a quality job, here's how was the substrate prepared ...
We proceeded with cortical abrasion and hydrowash with water and acid in order to clean the just made concrete. Subsequently, the spacers were removed creating dovetail openings and then, if necessary, derusting first and then passivate the metal stumps. The "gravel nests" have been cleaned up to meet again a compact concrete and areas of interventions have been compensated with the aid of appropriate fiber-reinforced mortars, anti-shrinkage for concrete. Thus, waited that the patches were perfectly dry before the execution of the system COPROX®. On the border between the floor and the wall has created a "cove" with legs of at least 8-10 cm and to make this "cove" was used COPROX® Fondo Piscine.
• ... and here's how we proceeded to the application of the system
After machine- mixing COPROX® Fondo Piscine and water in a ratio of about 1.2 liters every 5 kilograms of powder, the product has been applied within the time of 1 hour without ever add water. The substrate was soaked at saturation point to and, keeping it wet, was applied the first coat of COPROX® Fondo Piscine drowning a fiberglass 160 gr./sqm plaster net. To apply the following coats of COPROX Fondo Piscine® have been waited at least 8 hours after the previous coat, soaking the substrate and keeping it moist. The final thickness achieved by the applications described was more than 5-6 mm.
After the application of COPROX® Fondo Piscine and after a delay of at least 8 hours was carried out, soaking the substrte at saturation point, the application of the plaster finish COPROX® Finitura Piscines in the chosen colors in two coats wet on wet with the aim to give a smooth look to the pool.
