Torch Applied Water Proofing

Bituminous waterproofing works great for many applications. This type of waterproofing is great for commercial and residential buildings. To create this type of waterproofing, bitumen will be combined with a mixture of substances. Remember that Bitumen is asphalt or coal-tar. The mixed substance is normally made up of organic liquids which will be very sticky. On top of that, they’re vicious and waterproof enduring. This makes the material very effective for this specific purpose. At the same time, you should know that it can be helpful for many applications. Case in point, it is often used for the construction of roofs. It can be found in the form of roll roofing materials and roofing felt.

Cementitious Water Proofing

The cementitious coating is a powder that consists of sand, organic and inorganic chemicals, and silica-based substances. When the active ingredients are combined with lime, it causes a hydration reaction, creating a waterproof seal. Many experts prefer working with this type of coating because it is so easy to utilize.

Polyurethane Coatings

Polyurethane is made up of two components, base, and reactor. Polyol acts as the base, while isocyanide is the reactor component. The combination of both these in a specific design ratio creates a liquid coating for waterproofing applications. Polyurethane is a rather popular choice due to its ease of installation. Unlike other waterproofing systems like sheet membranes and liquid applied membranes, this polyurethane application requires comparatively less skill and supervision. Application is fast and this type of treatment can be used for post-construction applications as well.

Polyurea Coatings

Polyurea coating technology constitutes a more recent and advanced system than the traditional ones used in waterproofing and protective coating applications.

However, it is not a new technology. In fact, it has been around and in use for almost three decades now.

The technology is based on the reaction of an isocyanate component with an amine blend. The isocyanate can be of aromatic or aliphatic composition. This reaction is rapid, proceeding to completion within a few seconds, thus requiring specialized mixing and application equipment to be used by a specialized application crew.

Pile Head Water Proofing

A significant number of constructions who are in soil where is a high level of underground water has the necessity of proper waterproofing. The foundation slab on such construction mainly lay on piles, the major challenge is proper waterproofing of heads of piles – under the foundation slab.
There are many different systems of waterproofing of foundation slabs. Despite a variety of those systems, which are mainly membranes systems (bitumen, PVC, TPO, or EPDM), waterproofing pile head treatment mainly were performed with some of the coating systems such as to penetrate or other polymer cement-based coatings.

Leak Sealing & Plugging

Water and moisture in the basement & water retaining structures will considerably reduce the value of the structure.

Leaky foundation walls in commercial structures cause similar damage. In extreme cases, liquid water will actually be seeping or flowing into the building through cracks and penetrations in the concrete wall. The cause is usually failed waterproofing or an inadequate drainage system, which allows hydrostatic pressure to build upon the outside of the structure. These layers are sometimes damaged during construction, or leaks can be caused by changes in environmental conditions or cracks in the foundation.

The usual approach is to excavate the area where the leaks are located and repair the waterproofing. Positive-side waterproofing is an effective and proven solution. In some cases, however, it’s not possible. Leaking floors, for instance, are almost always inaccessible from the exterior.

The depth of the foundation and other constraints often make positive side waterproofing impossible. Fortunately, solutions have been developed that allow contractors to confidently and permanently seal active water leaks from the inside (negative side) of the structure. This treatment is called water plugging.

We provide application services for fast curing water stopping products that can be used to plug leaks in concrete and masonry to prevent water ingress into a building or structure such as tunnels, tanks, shafts, manholes, and similar.
