Elevation and external walls are barriers built so that the weathering effect is protected and the interior environment is air-tight and water-tight. If these walls start leaking and result in seepage, the strength and purpose of the walls start weakening. Cracks, joints and trap areas are possible sources for water penetration and must be protected to safeguard the interiors and the very purpose of the wall.
It is imperative to employ an appropriate elastomeric waterproofing configuration to protect the walls
from such weathering effects like water ingress, carbonation, damp substrates, etc. Investments on waterproofing are way lower in comparison to the continuous repair costs caused by damage that seepage and leakage. Below are some recommended products that can be used for the waterproofing of external walls.

Note: Incase the wall surface is old and damaged / cracked or existing surface is of paint, texture, tiles etc., then it is advisable to follow our alternative waterproofing system. For more details, kindly get in touch with our technical/sales advisers.
Process designing is important for any waterproofing solution as environmental dynamics, usage, construction design and other factors must be considered. Each requirement will vary in the mentioned aspects, reason for which there cannot be one standard solution/set of products for all situations. It is therefore recommended to consult with our technical team, structural/project consultants and the engineering team at the buyers end before concluding the most appropriate solution.
