Cement high marks in its pure form used as additional waterproofing of structures for many years. In the process of building a large-scale hydraulic structures, underground tunnels and pools used specially designed waterproofing concrete. But to create solely on the basis of mineral fillers composition, which is easy to apply and prevents the penetration of moisture was a daunting task until, as scientists and chemists began to experiment with polymer materials. The result is a modern cement waterproofing, which by its parameters superior to their counterparts for durability, ease of use and even price.
Such mixtures in their composition containing the binder, which is a high-quality cement of high marks, special filler and polymer additives that enhance adhesion of the mixture to deeply penetrate the surface. Crystallizers in the concrete structure, they have linked the base is coated, add elasticity waterproofing coating and enhance the hydrophobic properties of the mixture.
Adhesion cement waterproofing higher than even bitumen and bitumen-polymer. Such compositions have excellent adhesion to concrete, brick, plastered surfaces. The surface acquires a high mechanical strength and resistance to abrasion.
Water vapor permeability is a unique property of waterproofing cement-polymer mortar. This quality eliminates the appearance of cracks, both indoors and for exterior use. In the reconstruction of buildings is almost the only solution.
The sustainability of such compositions allows their use for the treatment of pools and reservoirs for drinking water.
The practicality of cement waterproofing is undeniable. It, in contrast to gluing, may be applied to the surface of the most complex forms, simply applied with a brush or spatula, and cost significantly lower than traditional counterparts.
Durability of cement waterproofing is much higher than other types and is comparable to the duration of operation of buildings, so that the repair surfaces are virtually eliminated.
The elasticity of cement-polymer mortar is achieved by a high content of polymer components. An example of such two-component mixtures are Teknomer 200 and Teknomer 200 EX. They are used the probability of occurrence of cracks and surface strength and abrasion resistance are higher.
Ready surface for finishing cement waterproofing eliminates the use of additional preparation and is ready for plastering, painting or tiling. It saves and eliminates the use of additional materials.
For the purpose of cement waterproofing is divided into several types:
Waterproofing mixture has a very wide scope. It is used for protecting foundations and basements from moisture, both external and internal parties. Used for waterproofing of pools, floors, walls, balcony plates treated and maintained terraces. Penetrating mixture used for porous bases, the solution permeates the structure material and fills the pores and there kristallizuetsya. Repair compounds are used for joints and cracks in concrete, in the reconstruction of buildings.
Works on waterproofing of cement-polymer compositions starts with the surface preparation for applying the mixture, purify it from dust, dirt, oil, and debris. Often the surface before applying the must be wet. The cracks and the seams are embroidered and tightly filled repair compounds. Then, the solution Teknomer 200 or 200 Teknomer EX should be applied with a brush or spatula, thoroughly rubbing into the surface, leaving no gaps, and if necessary, apply several layers.
Thus, we made sure that the waterproofing cement-based, is an effective and more economical solution in comparison with existing solutions, and for internal waterproofing of basements and basement is generally the only option.
