Waterproofing is a fundamental construction requirement. Modern buildings are waterproof, using membranes and coatings to protect the integrity of the structure. However, every year a large number of households and commercial premises report damage and problems that may be associated with inadequate waterproofing of buildings. If you do not stop the penetration of water on time, it will cause serious damage to the building. The service life of a structure depends on its stability, and this is what affects the ingress of water. Therefore, the waterproofing of the building is very important, and in recent times more attention has been paid to it.
Polyurethane is a rather popular choice for waterproof coatings due to its ease of installation. Unlike other waterproofing systems, polyurethane application requires comparatively less skill and supervision. FAIRMATE offers innovative technologies for waterproofing all types of structures. One such product is WATERGUARD PU MEMBRANE.
Properties of WATERGUARD PU MEMBRANE
It is a polyurethane based liquid applied single component elastomeric waterproofing membrane. It cures by reaction with atmospheric moisture to form a tough, elastomeric, waterproof membrane. The product is designed for use on horizontal and vertical surfaces, covered by a protective screed or render.
WATERGUARD PU MEMBRANE is used to provide continuous, seamless, water and vapour proof membrane for concrete. Typical applications will include roofs, podiums, balconies, floor slabs, suspended floors, patios, bathrooms, inspection pits, swimming pools and bridge decks. Properties include the following:
• Excellent crack bridging properties up to 2mm
• Resists deterioration from dilute acids and alkali, oil, salts, bacteria, and common fuels.
• Gives long term resistance to ponded water
• Membrane can stretch with movement in the substrate due to high elongation
• Single component, Easy to applied by roller, brush, or airless spray
Foundations & Basement: WATERGUARD PU MEMBRANE can be applied as waterproofing barrier in basement & foundation, which will enable it to resist attack by penetration of surrounding moisture.
Kitchens & bathrooms: WATERGUARD PU MEMBRANE can be applied as waterproofing coating in Kitchens & wet areas like bathrooms, which will enable it to resist attack by ingress of water.
Car Park decks & terraces: As it gives long term resistance to ponded water, it can be applied as waterproofing barrier in car Park decks & terraces which are directly exposed to weather.
