Damproofing And Waterproofing

Damproofing And Waterproofing are important for maintaining concrete. A popular finish material for both the interior and exterior of structures, concrete offers both aesthetic qualities and structural capabilities. The decorative concrete market in particular has exploded with growth. Planning for the long-term protection and maintenance of finished concrete surfaces should be a critical part of any project design and place- ment process.

Sealers are applied to concrete to act as a protective layer while safe- guarding the concrete below. Despite its inherent strength and durability, concrete is a porous material with an absorptive surface, making it suscepti- ble to the intrusion of water, chlorides, oils and other chemical substances that can cause damage ranging from surface stains and spalling to internal corrosion of reinforcing steel. By damproofing or waterproofing concrete with a sealer, the detrimental effect of these liquids can be prevented or at least reduced.

 

Waterproofing – Vandex

Cementitious Slurry Coating

Vandex BB 75  –  NSF Approved Waterproofing

VANDEX BB 75 is an engineered surface waterproof coating with hydrophobic properties that is NSF/ANSI Standard 61 approved for use with potable water. VANDEX BB 75 can be brush or spray applied to either the positive or negative side of a concrete or masonry substrate in need of waterproofing. Tested to over 230 feet of hydrostatic pressure, VANDEX BB 75 is suitable for horizontal and Vertical/overhead uses. While resistant to water and moisture, VANDEX BB 75 allows the structure to breathe by allowing the passage of vapor.

Vandex Cemelast  –  Elasticized Waterproof Coating

VANDEX CEMELAST is an elastic surface waterproof coating with hydrophobic properties. VANDEX CEMELAST is comprised of VANDEX CEMELAST LIQUID and VANDEX BB 75 powder. When the two are mixed together to create VANDEX CEMELAST, areas that are subject to cracking and minor movement can be easily waterproofed. Tested to over 50 feet of hydrostatic pressure, VANDEX CEMELAST is suitable for horizontal and vertical/overhead uses. While resistant to water and moisture, VANDEX CEMELAST allows the structure to breathe by allowing the passage of vapor.

Cementitious Repair

Vandex Plug  –  Rapid Setting Hydraulic Cement Compound

VANDEX plug is a rapid-setting hydraulic cement compound with crystalline properties used to instantly stop running water or seepage in masonry or concrete. VANDEX PLUG is ready to use and requires only the addition of water before plugging and sealing active leaks within a minute. Once VANDEX PLUG has set and stopped the flowing water, additional Vandex waterproofing treatments can be immediately applied over the top of it.

Crystalline Waterproofing

Vandex Quickbender  –  Accelerating Agent for Vandex Super 

VANDEX QUICKBINDER is an alkaline liquid that is mixed into VANDEX SUPER crystalline waterproofing powder to create a fast-setting mortar that stops actively leaking water. VANDEX QUICKBINDER can be used as supplied or diluted with water to control the setting time of the mortar. It does not contain chlorides or solvent. With the addition of VANDEX QUICKBINDER, VANDEX SUPER takes on hydraulic cement properties to cease water penetration through joints, cracks, form tie holes, etc. The setting time of VANDEX SUPER when mixed with VANDEX QUICKBINDER is approximately 1 minute at 68oF (20oC).

Vandex Super/Super White  –  NSF Approved Crystalline Waterproofing 

VANDEX SUPER and VANDEX SUPER WHITE are of similar nature. VANDEX SUPER is based on gray cement and is concrete gray in color, whereas VANDEX SUPER WHITE utilizes white cement as the binder and is white in color. The remainder of this document will reference both products as VANDEX SUPER, unless noted. VANDEX SUPER becomes an integral part of the concrete substrate once applied and waterproofs the negative or positive side through a crystallization process. The crystals created block the capillaries and minor shrinkage cracks within the concrete to prevent any further water ingress. In addition to waterproofing, VANDEX SUPER protects concrete substrates against saltwater, wastewater, harsh ground water and certain chemical solutions. VANDEX SUPER is ANSI/NSF approved for use with potable water.

Vandex Flextape System  –  High performance sealing system for dynamic joints and cracks

The VANDEX FLEXTAPE SYSTEM is comprised of the VANDEX FLEXTAPE thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) seal strip and the VANDEX FLEXTAPE EPOXY ADHESIVE, which is a two component (1:1) gel epoxy used to adhere the seal strip to the concrete structure. The VANDEX FLEXTAPE SYSTEM has been designed to permanently seal dynamically moving cracks and joints from either the positive or negative side. Following a simple installation process, the VANDEX FLEXTAPE SYSTEM provides excellent resistance to municipal sewage, saltwater, UV radiation and microorganisms. VANDEX FLEXTAPE is available in three sizes to accomodate different joint and crack configurations. VANDEX FLEXTAPE 150/1 is 6” (150mm) wide and 1mm thick. VANDEX FLEXTAPE 200/1 is 8” (200mm) wide and 1mm thick. VANDEX FLEXTAPE 200/2 is 8” (200mm) wide and 2mm thick.

Waterproofing Concrete

Mapelastic

All-climate, flexible cementitious membrane for concrete waterproofing and protection

Mapelastic is a cementitious membrane that waterproofs concrete. It also protects concrete from chemical attack by de-icing salts, sulphates, chlorides and carbon dioxide that leads to deterioration and requires costly repair. Mapelastic is designed for application on new concrete structures, concrete structures repaired with Mapecem® or Planitop® mortars and renders with hairline cracks, as well as any cementitious surface subject to vibrations and subsequent cracking. Use Mapelastic on such hydraulic projects as channels and faces of dams in addition to swimming pools, basins, storage tanks, balconies and terraces.

Planiseal Plug
Ultra Quick-Setting Water Stop and Anchoring Mortar

Planiseal Plug is a quick-setting mortar specially designed for stopping leaks, repairing concrete and anchoring. Planiseal Plug is used for repairing horizontal and vertical surfaces in interior or exterior concrete applications, such as:

  • Repairing substrates, floors, walls, sidewalks, pipes, and precast and concrete components.
  • Anchoring door and window frames and any other component that is required to be mechanically fastened to concrete substrates.
  • Quick-patching any type of conduits in concrete substrates (sewers, wastewater treatment plants, etc.)
  • Patching and sealing small water leaks in concrete structures very quickly.

Xypex Concentrate

Xypex Concentrate is the most chemically active product within the Xypex Crystalline Waterproofing System. When mixed with water, this light grey powder is applied as a cementitious slurry coat to above-grade or below-grade concrete, either as a single coat or as the first of a two-coat application. It is also mixed in Dry-Pac form for sealing strips at construction joints, or for the repairing of cracks, faulty construction joints and honeycombs. Xypex prevents the penetration of water and other liquids from any direction by causing a catalytic reaction that produces a non-soluble crystalline formation within the pores and capillary tracts of concrete and cement-based materials.

Xypex Modified

Xypex Modified can be applied as a second coat to reinforce Xypex Concentrate, or applied by itself to dampproof the exterior of foundation walls. Applied as a second coat, Xypex Modified chemically reinforces Xypex Concentrate where two coats are required and produces a harder finish. Where dampproofing is required, a single coat of Modified may be used as an alternative to a spray/tar emulsion. Xypex prevents the penetration of water and other liquids from any direction by causing a catalytic reaction that produces a non-soluble crystalline formation within the pores and capillary tracts of concrete and cement-based materials.

Xypex Patch’n Plug

Xypex Patch’n Plug is a specially designed, fast-setting, non-shrink, high-bond-strength, hydraulic cement compound for concrete patching and repair. Patch’n Plug stops flowing water in seconds and is used to seal cracks, tie holes, and other defects in concrete. The high performance characteristics of Patch’n Plug are enhanced by Xypex’s unique crystalline waterproofing technology.
