Ezycoat Membrane is a hard wearing durable & flexible paint system specifically designed to protect interior and exterior masonry wall surfaces. It has a thicken creamy consistency that when applied allows it to create an extra thick protective coating to the surface.
Using the latest in European technology it has been possible to develop a paint that has excellent adhesion, abrasive resistance and offers the ultimate in protection. The end result is a membrane coating that provides its user with a quality product, with ease of application.
Unlike many external paint finishes that tend to leave roll marks and cut in lines, Ezycoat Membrane when applied to specification will not accentuate these properties; instead provide a seamless finish to the surface.

Ezycoat Membrane is a specially designed decorative pigmented coating system for application over such products as Ezycoat Skim Render, Ezycoat ECA, Super 6, Conventional Render and various other Ezycoat texture finishes. It is also suitable for application over non porous & porous concrete substrates such as precast concrete & concrete block.
The final product will produce a protective membrane which exhibits excellent durability and high water and U.V. resistant. Its extra thick film forming ability and properties still enable Ezycoat Membrane to maintain excellent transpiration properties while still exhibiting water resistance to the external surface.
Prior to application of Ezycoat Membrane to a surface it is essential that the surface be free of any contaminants that may affect the performance of the paint system. The sequence of coating application will vary depending on the surface to which the Ezycoat Membrane is to be applied. Table 1 provides application procedures for various surfaces and estimated product usage. It is essential that the trade contractor applying the product makes a suitable inspection of the intended applicating surface prior to commencing works. If in doubt please contact our offices for further advice.
Ezycoat Membrane is ready to use, out of the pail and does not require the addition of any extra water. Ezycoat Membrane is applied by a min 24mm Long Nap Roller. This will ensure minimum film build will be achieved. However the applicator will need to implement a structured supervisory plan should specific film build be specified. The responsibility of Dry film thickness (DFT) required & achieved on a project will be left with the applicator. Should any doubt exist in achieving the specified dry film thickness, then the applicator should contact our offices immediately before proceeding with any further with the application.
Ezycoat Membrane Application Specification Sequence*
|Coating Sequence||Render, Ezycoat
Super 6 etc.
|3||1||1 st Coat Ezycoat Masonry Sealer||1 st Coat Ezycoat Membrane|
|3||2||2 nd Coat Ezycoat Membrane||2 nd Coat Final Coat Ezycoat Membrane|
|3||3rd Coat Final Coat Ezycoat Membrane|
* With some darker colours it may be necessary to apply an additional coat of Ezycoat Membrane in order to maintain DFT. This will be at the discretion of the Licensed Painting Contractor to determine or if in doubt contact our offices for further advice. Membrane Paint colours with a Light Rreflective Value(LRV) of less than 40% will experience extra ordinary fading and may require additional maintenance with time. It is not recommended to use colours with an LRV of less than 40% on polystyrene wall cladding systems. For further advice please contact our offices.
Ezycoat Membrane 1 st. Coat & 2nd Coat should be allowed to dry for a min. of 8 Hrs. prior to proceeding with the Final coat. The finishing coat will require a minimum of 12 Hrs. to dry in full. This may vary depending on whether conditions. It is recommended that the process of cutting in, be carried out at the same time as rolling the Ezycoat Membrane on the walls so as to maintain a wet on wet application. This will reduce the effect of roller marks on the wall. Always try to apply Ezycoat Membrane in shaded areas out of the direct sun. Should rain forecasted or seen as being a problem within 48 hrs. of applying the membrane paint it is highly recommended that the application of the Ezycoat Membrane be postponed until such time as rain has cleared. Substrates must contain less than 15% WoodMoisture-Equivalent before painting.
Ezycoat Membrane should not be applied at temperatures below 7 degrees Celsius or when there is the possibility of rain. The durability of the product in its original confection is guaranteed for 1 year as long as it is not exposed to direct sunlight or temperatures below 4 degrees or had the addition of any other products such as water. Ezycoat Membrane is not suitable for use in areas prone to water logging, submersion, continually damp and/or below ground. Walls were Ezycoat Membrane is to be applied must be free draining. In the case of retaining walls the rear of the wall must be engineered to prevent any penetration of moisture or water through the wall in to the rear of the Ezycoat Membrane. Failure to do so will result in damage to the Ezycoat Membrane and is not covered by warranty.
For more detailed information with regards this product and safety issues, please refer to the Material Safety Data Sheets available from Active Building Systems Pty Ltd upon request. Ezycoat Membrane is to be applied only by trade’s persons holding a license for this trade as recognised by the legislative building authority for the relevant state to which the work is being carried out. Misuse of this product and/or noncompliance with technical specifications will void any warranties weather verbal or written.
Active Building Systems Pty Ltd reserves the right to change, update and republish these specifications without any notice. It is the user’s responsibility to attain the most current publication of Ezycoat Specifications from Active Building Systems Pty Ltd. at the time of the project.
