Waterproofing membranes

Some advanced VAE-Acrylics are used was waterproofing membranes. Waterproofing membranes are seen in:

  • Cellar walls
  • Walls and floors in wet areas (toilet, bathroom, kitchen)
  • Swimming pools
  • Water tanks
  • Balconies & terraces (as an impermeable layer beneath tiles)
  • Sewage drainage
  • Surface-protection systems for structrual concrete (protectsion against Co2, chlorides, sulfates, humidity)
  • Protecting buildings from aggressive chemicals (sulfates, acids, acid rain).
  • For both, Bituminous and non-bituminous materials
  • For Cementitious 1K and 2K materials
  • For ready to uses 1K systems

VAE can help to reach the requirements of waterproofing membranes

  • Very good adhesion to organice substrates and good cohesioin under permanent water impact
  • Hihg flexibility with carck-bridging properties
  • Good vaper permeability
  • Low water uptake
  • Forms a good watertight seal under high hydrostatic pressure
  • Good scratch and abrasion resistance
  • Good weathering resistance
