The Two Types of Waterproofing Applications:

Torch-on waterproofing:

Bitumen Torch-on waterproofing is the application of a polymer modified membrane. It is a mixture of a sticky bitumen liquid and polymer agent. The types of polymers agents include; Atactic Polypropylene (APP) or Styrene Butadiene Styrene (SBS). These polymers enhance the temperature performance and increase the durability of the bitumen membrane. This bitumen-polymer mixture is then coated on either a polyester or fiberglass reinforced membrane to increase the tear-strength and puncture resistance properties.

Torch-on waterproofing systems are best suited for expansion joints, flat concrete roof surfaces, foundation walls, flashings, overlaps on corrugated and IRB roof sheets, parapet walls, retaining walls and roofing screws. It has proven to be one of the most reliable technologies in the waterproofing industry.

Bitumen waterproofing is one of the best waterproofing solutions when it comes to the sealing of underwater surfaces such as box gutters or below the soil applications, such as underground basements and lateral walls against embankments.

Acrylic waterproofing systems

When it comes to waterproofing, Acrylic waterproofing system is another application that we often consider and specialise in. This application works best for various roof surfaces and structures that include; tiled roof areas, parapets, flashings, joints and roof ridges, cracks, roof screws and chimney caps. Acrylic waterproofing systems are often suitable for almost any climate and condition. However, it is not suitable for areas that are covered by water for long periods.

Acrylic waterproofing bonds to almost any surface, regardless of whether it be wood, metal, asphalt, concrete, clay or foam insulation boards. Acrylic waterproofing systems consist of two primary components:

This acrylic waterproofing system consists of a copolymer emulsion in paint form and a reinforced fibre membrane. The membrane is manually inserted between multiple layers of acrylic waterproofing coats. This method creates a seamless and flexible waterproofing application with minimal maintenance requirement.
