Top 10 Best Waterproofing Materials For Buildings

Top 10 Best Waterproofing Materials

Waterproofing is the process or pattern of making an object water-resistant. Waterproofing items are used in wet environments or underwater. In our market, there are so many waterproofing companies. Waterproofing Expert Nepal, Waterproof Nepal, Himalayan Engineering Associations Pvt. Ltd., etc. are waterproofing products and services of Nepal.

Interior, exterior, and drainage waterproofing are the top 3 basement waterproofing methods. The top 10 Best Waterproofing Materials are given below.


Cementitious Waterproofing

The waterproofing technique for concrete that uses cement-based polymer coating is cementitious waterproofing. In other words, Breathable, seamless coatings used to provide positive and negative side waterproofing protection on concrete and masonry surface is known as cementitious waterproofing. It helps to prevent damage from water infiltration. It is mold resistant and Mildew resistant.

Foundation Waterproofing

Foundation waterproofing is known as the process of resisting water from entering a basement from the outside. It protects any below-ground structure from water ingress as well as potential Radon protection with the appropriate type of product. By preventing water and underground gasses from entering a property we can mitigate the risk of possible damages that may occur due to foundation water.

The Foundation Waterproofing system has four main components.

Primer- it prevents moisture from passing through the foundation wall

Primary waterproofing layer

Secondary waterproofing

A drain with inspection ports


Waterproof Plywood

Waterproof plywood made of veneer. It is used in concrete construction, interior, and exterior finishing, and decorating.  Waterproof plywood has improved water-resistant properties and enhanced the scope of its application.  We can use waterproof plywood in interior works as well as exterior works.


Waterproof Cement

Mixing a small percentage of metal stearates with ordinary cement makes cement waterproof. Concrete made with such cement has more water penetration than other types of cement.  Due to having resistance power, this type of cement is used in construction like water reservoirs, water tanks, dams, walls, bridges, swimming pools, etc.

The major advantages of waterproof cement are the greater resistance to water, less absorption in concrete, and more durable structure.  

MasterSeal

Application of waterproofing systems in wet areas like the bathroom, kitchen, balcony, water tank, and planter box. While using a master seal, the surface must be clean, sound, well-bounded, and free of dust and laitance. We can fix problems like water and gas leakage by using the master seal.

New coat and Newcoat Coool

Terrace waterproofing has been seen as a growing interest area for consumers and Newcoat and Newcoat Coool is developed to deal with terrace leakage issues. There are multiple uses for these new products. 

The main use of this product is to repair the terrace without any breakage which shows that they are less labor intensive and therefore low cost and quick.  

Dr. Fixit LEC

 Dr.Fixit is a wide range of innovative and productive construction chemicals in waterproofing, building repairs, tile fixing, coating and paints, and industrial flooring.

Dr. Fixit LEC focuses on insulation, and Pidilite has come up with products like Dr. Fixit Low Energy Consumption. Dr. Fixit LEC enhances the lifestyle of the building providing better insulation and reducing heat. Reducing overall energy consumption and hence carbon footprint of the building. 

Zentrifix-Elastic

Here we used membranes or slurry-applied membranes. These types of membranes are multi-ford, in basements, wet areas, swimming pools, tanks, dead walls, terraces, terrace-gardens structural elements, and so on. Zentrifix-Elastic is used for sealing strained basement walls, waterproofing systems for high water heads, carbonation-resistant coating in repair, and protection systems.

Kryptonite 

In any construction, Construction Joints always need extra attention. Construction joints must allow horizontal displacement right-angled to the joint surface which is normally caused by thermal and shrinkage movement. 

These joints are at the highest risk of water seepage and if not treated correctly during the construction phase can lead to costly rounds of repairs, especially once the structure is ready and it is next to impossible to isolate the leakage point. So we use kryptonite to fulfill all these problems.
