waterproofing materials typically consist of a liquid polymer, such as polyurethane, acrylic, or bitumen-based compounds. These materials are specially formulated to provide excellent adhesion, flexibility, and resistance to water penetration.
Before applying the liquid waterproofing material, the surface needs to be prepared properly. This typically involves cleaning the surface to remove any dirt, debris, or loose particles. It may also involve repairing any cracks, holes, or damaged areas to ensure a smooth and even surface.
In some cases, a primer may be applied to the surface before the liquid waterproofing material. The primer enhances adhesion between the substrate and the waterproofing material, ensuring a strong bond and improved performance
The liquid waterproofing material is applied to the prepared surface using various techniques, such as brushing, rolling, or spraying. The material is spread evenly to achieve a uniform thickness and coverage. Multiple coats may be required depending on the specific product and application requirements
Once applied, the liquid waterproofing material undergoes a curing process to transform into a solid and fully waterproof membrane. The curing time can vary depending on the material and environmental conditions. During this stage, it is crucial to protect the freshly applied membrane from damage, moisture, and foot traffic.
After the liquid applied waterproofing membrane has cured, additional protective layers may be added, such as a topcoat or protective coating. These layers provide additional durability, UV resistance
, and aesthetic finishes. The choice of protective coating depends on the specific application and desired performance characteristics.
