Product Overview

Waterproofing chemical is a synthetic chemical product that shields the structure from water penetration and percolation. The excess water penetration in buildings can reduce their lifespan and may cause damage to the structure, apart from electrical, metal and other structural hazards. It is generally applied to the peripheral of a foundation structure or mixed with a construction application. Application of waterproofing imparts substantial advantages to the building which include lower maintenance cost of buildings and protection from extreme climatic conditions. Some of the important waterproofing chemicals include Polyurethane, acrylic polymer, elastomeric coatings, expanded polyethylene and polysulphide sealants. These chemicals are available in liquid, solid, and semi-liquid form.
