Waterproofing Applications for your structure- Concrete Care

Waterproofing Applications

Waterproofing is one of the most important aspects of any structure. It is often avoided which might result in a devastative result. Waterproofing application is required at concrete structures to keep moisture out of the facility and to protect the structural components of concrete and embedded reinforcing steel. If the integrity of the concrete is maintained, it can remain waterproof. 

Natural factors like air, water, climate, wind and humidity govern the life of a building, apart from the occupancy load. Water (through humidity and rains) is the prime source of degrading or harming a structure, right from its foundation to its plaster if the structure is not well protected from it. Water through its capillary action enters and hampers the strength of concrete, thereby making it susceptible to corrosion. This is observed in building through the development of cracks on plaster, rot formation on walls and presence of moisture on the ceiling.

Waterproofing is required to protect the structural contents from water infiltration that can cause structural damage to the concrete or corrosion to the embedded steel. Concrete is by design a porous material, and water can pass through it by hydrostatic pressure, water vapor gradient or capillary action. Water can also enter at cracks, structural defects or at improperly designed or installed joints. Waterproofing is also required to eliminate deterioration to the concrete that can occur from the exterior and interior chemicals that are present at the building site. Good adhesion between the concrete surface and the waterproofing membrane is also essential to prevent water migration and leakage if there are any openings or imperfections in the membrane or concrete surface.
