All About Waterproofing Compounds
Posted by kirrily on February 27th, 2018
Waterproofing is an act of making a structure waterproof or water-resistant so that water does not affect the structure. It has now become a necessity for newly constructed structures. Waterproofing compounds are the materials used in the process of waterproofing. They are majorly employed to protect the structure from penetration of water in its liquid state and under pressure.
In construction, a structure is waterproofed making use of membranes and coatings to protect its structural integrity. Modern waterproofing compounds are water-repellent coatings and sealings. Waterproofing compound is extensively used for all types of concrete to prevent water penetration. It is also used in the construction of concrete roofs.
The term waterproof is used for many products, though each of the product has a specific area of application.
Different types of waterproofing compounds are employed in various waterproofing methods. Let us have a look at some of the waterproofing methods:
Waterproofing compounds are the materials used to protect building structures, walls, and installations from the harmful effects of water and corrosive fluids. By purpose, waterproofing compounds are classified into three categories: anti-seepage, anti-corrosion, and hermetic, i.e. complete and airtight. Also, waterproofing compounds can be of asphalt, mineral, plastic, or metallic material.
Dr. Fixit Pidiproof LW+ is an integral waterproofing compound. It gives waterproofing to plaster and concrete. It also resists corrosion in steel bars. It thus helps to increase the workability of mortar that reduces rebounds loss.
Thus, waterproofing compounds are the basis for a reliable waterproofing of the structure. The selection of waterproofing compounds must be made wisely depending on the type of structure.Also See: Waterproofing Compounds, Liquid Membrane, Waterproofing Compound, Water Resistant, Waterproofing, Water, Structure
