By definition, waterproofing is the formation of an impervious barrier which is designed to prevent water entering or escaping from various sections of building structures. Areas where moisture can pool, such as bathrooms, laundries and external wet areas, must be waterproofed before tiling to contain moisture and protect the building structure.
Our waterproofing membranes offer a variety of features and benefits and are designed for commercial and residential applications. Depending on the area to be waterproofed, our range includes ready-to-use acrylic and polyurethane membranes that can be applied directly out of the pail. We also have cementitious 2 part membranes that eliminate the need for reinforcement layers, thus saving application time and mess.
Waterproofing membranes are suitable for internal wet areas such as shower recesses, toilets and laundries, external wet areas such as roofs, decks and balconies and other applications such as planter boxes, water tanks, ponds retaining walls, swimming pools and spas.
A waterproofing bond breaker is designed to allow normal building movement to be accommodated by a waterproofing membrane. Bond breakers allow the membrane to stretch, rather than snap, taking advantage of the elastic property of the material.
