Waterproof wall panels – The periods of dry weather are convenient to address problems generated by rain, such as leaks, stains and leaks that have arisen in some sector of the house. But it is not only about cures, but to prevent when executing the work: first, it was the application on the surface of products that, by their nature, do not absorb water (tars, oils, soaps and sulfates). Then, the need for safer and more resistant techniques forced the development of waterproofing, in which asphalts and their derivatives were initially used; later, other materials were tested, such as acrylic resins, polyurethanes and plastics. Thus, today there are different waterproofing systems in the market.
The waterproofing agents are substances that stop the water, preventing its passage, and are used in the lining of walls, ceilings and objects that must be kept dry. They work by eliminating or reducing the porosity of the material, filling leaks and isolating moisture from the medium. There are also polyurethane-based waterproof wall panels, ideal for buildings and civil works, with the advantage that they reduce maintenance and repair costs. A protective fabric or mesh can be added, which will increase resistance to environmental attacks, such as thermal shocks or ultraviolet (UV) rays. Liquid sealers based on acrylic polymers that form an elastic and transparent film, maintaining the original appearance of the treated surface and accompanying small mechanical movements.
Quick and easy to apply, they are suitable for sealing and waterproofing cracks or fissures in terraces, ceilings and roofs, with cement finishing or ceramic tiles. You can waterproof wall panels and exterior walls of plaster, concrete, bricks, blocks and pre-molded panels with waterproof, decorative elastomeric acrylic coatings and high weather resistance protectors. They provide a decorative finish and require knowledge for their application. There are waterproofing products designed to protect roofs, terraces, sloping masonry roofs, concrete, fiber cement and even sheet metal roofs. When drying, these coatings form an elastic waterproof membrane. They are of simple application and with washable tools.
