Water based Elastomeric Decorative Coating.


A high performance crack accommodating elastomeric acrylic protective and decorative coating for concrete and masonry.



Crack bridging protective coating for conrete.

Product Description:

Sikagard®-550 W Elastic is a one part, plasto-elastic coating based of UV-curing acrylic dispersion with excellent crack-bridging properties even at temperatures below 0°C.


  • Protection and enhancement of concrete structures (normal and lightweight concrete), especially exposed concrete surfaces with a risk of cracking
  • With concrete repair works as an elastic protective top coating on Sika® mortar thin layer levelling mortar (refer to product data sheet)

Characteristics / Advantages:

  • Crack-bridging even at low temperatures (-20°C)
  • High diffusion resistance against CO2 reducing the rate of carbonation Water vapour permeable
  • Very good resistance against weathering and ageing
  • Can be diluted with water
  • Environmentally friendly (solvent free)
  • Reduced tendency to dirt pick up and contamination

Product Data:


Appearance / Colours
Thixotropic liquid available in almost every colour shade.

Packaging 15 litre pails


Storage Conditions / Shelf-Life
12 months from date of production if stored properly in undamaged and unopened original sealed packaging in cool and dry conditions. Protect from direct sunlight and frost.
