Water Proofing Treatment

The leakage of water rising dampness are the usual problems faced by the construction professional. Under these circumstances, water proofing, i.e. make the structure free from unwanted moisture attack becomes a necessity. Depending upon the nature, location, type and shape, and importance of the structure the procedure and the type of water proofing system should be chosen. The choice of correct and appropriate type of water proofing system is an important and critical situation of the waterproofing job. Failure in choosing the correct and appropriate type of water proofing system will result in an unsound, not durable water proofing treatment.Chose who provide free technical full support.

 

Now-a-days a variety of cold applied waterproofing chemicals are available in the market. Due to its ease and faster application, monolithic coating without any joints, long service life, and elastic in nature, these types of water proofing system are getting popular all over the world. Usually, these chemicals are made from single or two components are based on variety of chemicals such as polymers, acrylic emulsions in water and others.
These are elastomeric materials and can be applied by trowel, brush or sprayed by the machines. The applied chemical will form a film that acts as a waterproofing barrier to the structure. Due to its chemical composition, this film will develop very strong bond with the applied surface. Water proofing by crystallization system is also developed in this context to fill the micro-pores in concrete structure.

Usually, these types of water proofing material are based on silicon resin and long chain fatty acid. Due to its transparent nature, it has little or no effect on the appearance of the structure and because of its good penetration ability; the pores in the structure are lined with strongly water repellant resin. Since there is a high interfacial tension between water and silicon resin, water will not easily enter into them. Such types of treatment are done on exposed brick surface of the building, façade stones, plasters, gypsum boards etc which keeps building always fresh looking.
