Armorpoxy Balcony Deck Membrane Coating (BDMC) is a unique, thick and flexible system designed to coat balconies, roof decks, pool and patio decks, walkways, sidewalk vaults, parking areas with conditioned spaces underneath them, areas that have movement due to temperature or vibration issues, and similar applications. BDMC can also be designed for heavy-duty parking lot and parking deck use.
BDMC is a multi-layer FLEXIBLE, thick system designed to go over existing balconies and roof decks that have aged or are leaking. System design utilizes aggregate or decorative flecks for a naturally nonskid surface when wet. Designed for the harshest environments including commercial applications. Can be applied to wood, fiberglass, coated surfaces, concrete and similar substrates. The thick system hides surface imperfections and minor cracks (larger cracks and flashing areas should be filled first with Sikaflex Joint Compound/see below). Fully UV tolerant and designed for outdoor use. Low VOC for safe application in any application.
All BDMC layers are one-part products and do not require mixing. The first layer is the ‘membrane’ layer which is applied with a supplied calibrated notched squeegee. The special squeegee assures a thick, water-resistant, even coat. While wet onto this layer gets broadcast sand aggregate to ‘rejection’ so the entire surface is covered in aggregate Once the initial layer has cured, the excess aggregate is swept off, leaving a ‘sandpaper-like’ surface. Then, the final protective topcoat is rolled on. For bare wood or very dry fiberglass or similar degraded surfaces we recommend the optional BDMC Flash Bond Bonding Primer. Super easy and fun to install!
Please note that decorative full broadcast flecks for a “terrazzo” look or full broadcast colored quartz can be applied instead of sand for a more decorative design look. Please contact Armorpoxy for pricing on these options.
No special skills are required to install. Mil thickness of completed BDMC system is approximately 125 mils (1/8″).
Each kit contains 5 gals of pigmented Membrane layer (gray only) and 5 gals of Topcoat layer and covers approximately 500 square feet. Topcoat available in Gray or Fawn/Beige color options, plus a calibrated notched squeegee. Unfortunately smaller packaging units are not available. If optional fleck or quartz options are desired, the protective topcoat will be supplied in clear. Please note that the sand is NOT supplied in the kit due to high shipping costs since sand is available locally inexpensively. Each 500 square foot kit should use about 200 lbs of sand. Please contact Armorpoxy if you desire to purchase the sand along with your kit for a quotation with shipping fees.
Cure time overnight between layers depending on temperatures. Full cure 2-3 days after final layer applied . Please note that bare wood/new decks require additional layers and installation requirements, contact Armorpoxy for details. Not designed as a roofing product.
