Waterproofing is the combination of materials used to prevent water intrusion into the structural elements of a building or its finished spaces. Its main purpose is to resist hydrostatic pressure exerted by moisture in the liquid state. Hydrostatic pressure is pressure exerted by a fluid at equilibrium at a given point within the fluid, due to the force of gravity.
Cementitious waterproofing is the easiest method of waterproofing in construction. Cementitious waterproofing is often used in the internal wet areas such as toilets. Cementitious waterproofing is usually a rigid or semi-flexible type waterproofing, but since it is used in internal areas such as toilets, it is not exposed to sunlight and weathering. Cementitious waterproofing does not go through contract and expansion process.
Bituminous Coating is an excellent protective coating and waterproofing agent, especially on surfaces such as concrete foundations.
Polyurethane Liquid Membrane is particularly suitable for roofing applications as it possesses high strength, high elongation and good durability under outdoor weathering conditions in a broad temperature range.
Torch-On Bitumen Waterproofing is perfect for the waterproofing of roofs on buildings as it is durable with enhanced elasticity that moves with the structure. Torch-On Bitumen Waterproofing is capable of accommodating thermal movements of roofs.
Liquid waterproofing membrane is a thin coating which consists of usually a primer coat and two coats of top coats which are applied by spray, roller, or trowel.
