The common types of waterproofing materials today are liquid rubber and liquid glass. Waterproofing with liquid rubber protects the roof, foundation, basement, underground room and other structures from aggressive effects of moisture. Liquid rubber is a membrane coating, a rubber -gun emulsion, which is applied in a cold way and is used to waterproof horizontal and vertical surfaces. Isolation made of liquid rubber is grasped with the surface at the molecular level.
High -quality liquid rubber quickly hardens on the surface. Waterproofing with liquid rubber, in addition to traditional protection, is also capable of protecting the structure from the influence of ultraviolet rays. It can be applied both during the construction of the structure and during the repair of the old structure. Liquid rubber creates a membrane with great elasticity and strength. This provides protection against peeling of the material from the surface due to the adverse effects of the environment: vibration, water pressure, temperature changes, mechanical exposure, etc.D.
Another popularity of protection of structures from moisture penetration is a waterproofing waterproofing with liquid glass. Liquid glass is a sodium silicate solution (less often calcium), which also contains soda or quartz sand. Further, this mixture is fired, the resulting glass is finely irritated and dissolved with water. Liquid glass acts on the processed surface according to the principle of penetration, providing a high degree of efficiency. This method can be used both from the internal and outside of the structure. Waterproofing with liquid glass protects the foundation, basement, walls, concrete floors, bathrooms from moisture penetration into the internal parts of the room.
Liquid glass is as follows: chemicals that are in its composition when applying to the surface of the ceiling, walls or floor contribute to the growth of inanimate crystals inside building material. Penetrating the smallest pores and cracks available in the surface, inanimate liquid glass crystals can fill the entire thickness of the structure.
The crystalline structure of this waterproofing material has high air permeability and water -repellent properties, which provides reliable protection of the treated surface. Such waterproofing is done very quickly, and serves for many years.
