About Waterproof Memberane:

 

Application of waterproof membrane

 

A waterproofing membrane is a layer of water-tight material that is laid onto a surface to prevent water leaks or damage. Waterproofing membranes generally consist of liquid applied or pre-formed sheets. They can be adhered to or installed around the foundations (like a structural slab) to prevent water penetration. Whether it’s to protect your building’s basement or roof, waterproofing will help stop water from infiltrating your foundation and protect your structure from water damage. Waterproofing membrane is added to the concrete that will help make water ingress impenetrable as well as making it easy to maintain.

 

Different types of waterproofing membranes

 

Waterproofing membranes can be broadly categorized as Sheet Based Membranes and Liquid Applied Waterproofing Membranes. Sheet-based membranes come in the form of rolls. These are unrolled and laid on a firm surface. One of the most common sheet-based membranes is the bituminous waterproofing membrane. Liquid applied waterproofing membranes are the kind of membranes that come in the form of liquid that can be sprayed or brushed onto the surface. By spraying, the liquid forms a monolithic membrane, with no laps, welds or seams.
