Podium deck waterproofing systems and surface finishes are intended to protect the underlying structure. If the systems are neglected, moisture ingress into the structure can lead to costly deterioration.
Concrete is susceptible to fluid and vapour infiltration and migration. Crystalline waterproofing technology improves the durability of the concrete by filling and plugging pores, capillaries, and micro-cracks with a non-soluble, highly resistant crystalline formation.
After the publication of the article, “Climate Change: Why Waterproofing Concrete is Vital,” by Kris Till in the January 2020 issue of Construction Canada , we received a letter from CSC member Russell Snow, CSP, CTR, BSS, LEED AP.
Climate change poses challenges for building professionals tasked with the job of protecting structures from water damage. By becoming a part of the concrete, crystalline admixtures remove the need for a waterproofing membrane.
