Protexion’s Waterproofing Systems on External Areas of Buildingby Protexion Services Protective Coating and Solution Provider
Waterproofing is the formation of an impervious barrier over surfaces of foundations, roofs, walls, and other structural members. The function of the impermeable barrier is to prevent water penetrations. They make the surfaces of the building water resistant and sometimes waterproof. Protexion offers the most advanced technology for the best waterproofing systems, which are flexible and adhere fully to the substrate, creating a homogeneous waterproofing layer, perfectly fitted to the contours of the roof.
For external vertical walls that are mostly in contact with air humidity, transversal rain and sudden temperature changes it is advisable to use a liquid waterproofing expressly formulated for vertical applications. For balconies and terraces, besides above issues related to air humidity, the variation of temperatures and water, which can also be stagnant, it is fundamental to consider that these areas are generally walked on.
A good waterproofing, even under renovation, begins with the preparation of the foundation that will house the flooring. Therefore, it is necessary to use cement-based or bitumen-based waterproofing products and polymers, which are also adhesion bridges when laying ceramic floors. For the protection of balconies and terraces surfaces, it is advisable to use waterproofing protective coatings, like Protexion, which act as a real screen against atmospheric agents. In addition to that, they also offer protect the surface from puncture and the movement of objects.
Key Principles of Waterproofing
1. Get the water off the building, fast!
The quicker you get the water off the building, the less chance of it pooling
and leaking into the structure. You can do this by increasing slopes
wherever possible, which increases the speed of the travel of water on the
surface of building.
2. 90% of water intrusion occurs at critical junctions, such as the seam between one facade system and another. Today's building systems are complex, and many are proprietary, meaning that the details are worked out by the supplier, not the building designers. In this environment it is essential for the architect or building designers to understand these junctions in great detail to prevent problems.
3. When it is not a flaw in construction, water intrusion occurs mainly due to error in installation. These include inadequate surface preparation, inappropriate use of primers, failure to consider thermal and wind structural movements, or other human errors such as failure to follow the proper installation procedure.
When you are looking for waterproofing systems, Protexion the protective coating and solution provider of outperforms other products on the market. This fluid-applied single component is an easy to install product providing a seamless membrane, minimizing any breach of the surface and eliminating the risks that joints pose. This spray applied barrier applies quickly. We offer a waterproofing solution that is unsurpassed in performance and in its temperature range of use.
Waterproofing protects structures against the infiltration of water which can cause costly and irreversible damage. Mostly, it is invisible after completion of construction. Count on Protexion to provide long-lasting waterproof systems to protect your project. Every day the basement of a building, or the outermost layer of a tunnel, is exposed to intense fluctuations in moisture levels and temperatures, all contributing to its deterioration.
At Protexion, we understand the problems that underground spaces in buildings face, and we also know the waterproofing systems that will solve them.
