Fiber Waterproofing: How and when to use?
Typically, people use fiber waterproofing in new construction projects, such as foundations, basements, and retaining walls. As well as for the repair and rehabilitation of existing structures. Some of the most common applications of fiber waterproofing include:
- Waterproofing of foundations and basements: As well as waterproofing new structures and repairing existing ones, waterproofing can improve the water-resistance of foundations and basements.
- Waterproofing of retaining walls: Waterproofing can improve the water-resistance of retaining walls, reducing cracking and erosion.
- Waterproofing of floors and decks:A waterproofing solution can increase the water-resistance of floors and decks.
- Waterproofing of bridges and other infrastructure: By waterproofing, bridges and other infrastructure become more durable and long-lasting.
- Waterproofing of underground structures: Waterproofing can improve the water-resistance of underground structures such as tunnels, mines, and underground garages.
- Waterproofing of pools and water features: Waterproofing can improve the water-resistance of pools, fountains, and other water features, making them more durable and long-lasting.
Fiber waterproofing is beneficial when the structure is prone to crack or exposed to high water pressure. Professionals typically perform waterproofing after preparing and cleaning concrete thoroughly.
