Zinsser WaterTite LX Ultra Mold & Mildew Proof Waterproofing Paint is a low odor, latex-based paint designed to create an impermeable barrier to water on interior and above or below grade exterior, vertical or horizontal, concrete block and cast-in-place concrete.
KILZ® Basement & Masonry Waterproofing Paint is a premium, interior/exterior waterproofing paint designed for porous concrete and masonry surfaces.
Cementitious waterproofing coatings are breathable, seamless coatings used to provide positive and negative side waterproofing protection on concrete and masonry surfaces. They prevent damage from water infiltration and resist mold and mildew.
Waterproof concrete (also called integral concrete) is generally best for water retaining structures and less critical basements that are less than 10 meters deep, where soil conditions are not aggressive, and where the consequences of flooding are less severe.
For the masonry of exterior walls with hard brick one often uses 1 part cement, 3.5 parts sand, 0.25 part lime. While for the same job, but with much softer limestone, a completely different mixing ratio is advised, namely 1 part cement, 9 parts sand, 2 parts lime.
Waterproof cement is the name given to a portland cement to which a water-repellent agent has been added. Hydrophobic cement is obtained by grinding portland cement clinker with a film-forming substance such as oleic acid in order to reduce the rate of deterioration when the…
Water Repellent Cement is also called Hydrophobic Cement. A small amount of Hydrophobic surfactants such as stearic acid, boric acid or oleic acid is mixed with the ordinary portland cement during grinding of clinker. Hydrophobic Cement is most suitable for basements and for making water tight concrete.
Concrete can crack before or after hardening. Waterproofing is required at concrete structures to keep moisture out of the facility and to protect the structural components of concrete and imbedded reinforcing steel. If the integrity of the concrete is maintained, it can remain waterproof.
Normal concrete is not fully waterproof. The terms can get confusing, but waterproof concrete is both damp-proof and watertight – this means that not only is soil moisture prevented from getting through to the concrete, but liquid water cannot penetrate it either.
Epoxy paint is made from resins, and the chemical name of this paint is poly-epoxides. This is best suitable as a waterproofing paint for roof; when you face the struggle of damps on your roof. Hence, epoxy paints are known as damp-proof paints.
Waterproof paint will only last six months to two years in wet areas. To permanently solve moisture, you need to address its source. Proper ventilation and drainage systems are long-term solutions.
Do waterproof coatings work? The short answer is yes. We've used waterproof coatings in basements with great results. But careful prep work is critical; the coating can't stop water unless it can bond solidly to masonry.
Integral concrete waterproofing systems can be densifiers, water repellents or crystalline admixtures. Densifiers react with the calcium hydroxide formed in hydration, creating another by-product that increases concrete density and slows water migration.
The waterProofing Grades
Grade 2 – No water penetration is acceptable. Damp areas are tolerable depending on the end use. boiler rooms, workshops etc. Grade 3 – No dampness or water penetration is acceptable – Ventilated residential and commercial areas such as homes, offices, shops etc.
Negative-side waterproofing is the application of a coating material to the interior or the 'dry' side of a foundation or wall. Its primary function is to create a barrier coat to stop water from leaking through the wall and keeping the space dry.
It gives very good colour and pleasing appearance to all types of masonry surfaces. Cements paint hides out various surface irregularities, hair lining, roughness etc. thereby giving smooth and pleasing appearance to all cemented masonry surfaces where it is applied. Cement paints normally give smooth and matt finish.
Cement paint is water based paint and is applied to either exterior or interior including brick work and concrete. It is used for painting exterior wall surface mainly for preventing water penetration amd reductions of dirt collection. It is suitable for coating concrete as well as decorating indoor and outdoor walls.
It is used as an additive for cement concrete, mortar and plasters to enhance the properties of cement to impart waterproofing property and thereby provide benefits like no rusting of steel bars, no cracks and no dampness.
Dr. Fixit Powder Waterproof is composed of waterproofing additives, dispersed in inert fine filler. It is an integral powder-waterproofing admixture used for waterproofing of concrete and cement plasters, because It makes concrete cohesive, reduces porosity & improve water tightness.
