Penetrating waterproofing is a reliable way to save concrete structures from water.
Such compounds as Lakhta, Penetron, Admix, will perfectly provide waterproof protection of the home.
Regardless of what material is erectedStructure, it requires additional protection. A good means against the destruction of concrete and the impact of atmospheric precipitation is penetrating waterproofing, which prevents the penetration of water into the thickness of the material and its freezing there.
How penetrating waterproofing works
The waterproofing mixture consists ofPortland cement, quartz sand and modifying chemically active additives. The latter, spreading in the pores of concrete, form crystals that fill completely all the existing pores and voids.
By creating reliable protection against water, air permeability is maintained, which means that the concrete continues to breathe.
Penetron and Ksipeks - the first brands of penetrating waterproofing appeared in Russia.
To seal seams, cracks must be piercedFines of 30 to 60 mm, rinse them with water, and then walk through the penetrating solution. After a couple of hours, apply one more layer. The coating will be finally ready in 3 days.
In addition to penetrating, there are also oiling, pasting, injection hydro insulation. Each of them has its advantages and disadvantages.
Penetrating waterproofing is more suitable forConcrete structures, for which it is not possible to apply a coating of waterproofing. It slowly moves into the pores of concrete, where after a short period of time it seizes and transforms into crystals that are not afraid of moisture. The structure becomes more durable, breathable and frost-resistant, cracking is prevented, which can occur during the operation of structures.
Penetrating waterproofing reliably protects concrete from water, the influence of an aggressive environment, it has excellent vapor barrier properties.
Choosing a material for penetrating waterproofing,Always need to pay attention to the purpose for which the manufacturer recommends using them. The materials used are produced in various modifications. For example, suture material is used to isolate places where seams abut, it includes components that do not allow draft.
To give stability and restoration of concrete surfaces, use a repair composition. The masonry can also be protected with this waterproofing material.
On new concrete surfaces, it is better to use the wrist composition W 12, it is applied with a rigid brush, with a layer of 1 mm.
For old surfaces that need hardening, apply composition W 12, a layer of 2 mm. It is also used for waterproofing foundations.
