Purchased 3 tubs of this to cover the floor of a bedroom in a bungalow to prevent any damp from below.
Initially had some issues with sourcing tubs that were within the 6 month shelf life, but eventually managed to find them from a total of 3 local depots.
Frustratingly more than a year on since a reviewer noted that this product shouldn't be used beyond 6 months from DOM, Screwfix still seem blissfully unaware. I rang the sales number just to check, to be told that "the manufacturer is wrong (and worded their tubs incorrectly) and that the product shouldn't be used after 6 months from first opening it...." I rang Sika and unsurprisingly they told me it shouldn't be used after 6 months of DOM !
Screwfix thanked me for bringing it to their attention, but hopefully this time they will take it on board.
If following the guidelines on the side of the tub it then produces a very thick mixture which I can't see how could be brushed onto a surface. Had to spread it around with a plastering trowel which wasn't too bad and gave a reasonably smooth surface (for a novice).
It dried fairly quickly for the time of year, and hopefully will ensure the room stays damp free.

Does the job
We bought this for our garage walls as they were letting in water. We gave them two coats and so far were very pleased with the result. We have a couple of patches to go over again as we still have a trickle coming in. We didn't put it on as thick as we should have so more than likely that's our fault as you have to mix it up, gauging the amount you need if not using the whole tub. It's working and doing the job over 95% of the walls, the 5% being as described above. Make sure it's within the shelf life date. Would recommend the product.
