FIBRE BOND

The main reason people turn to cementitious waterproofing is to prevent water infiltration damage. It stops the passage of water, which prevents the area and its contents from all manner of water and damp damage. It is highly effective on cement-based surfaces both vertically and horizontally. It can be used with a membrane for additional strength and protection.

Benefits

FIBREBOND has the benefit of a wide range of suitability and strengths, including:

  • Monolithic - Cementitious waterproofing provides a seamless system

  • Abrasion and Weather resistant - Important where exposure and mechanical and human traffic wear is an issue

  • Excellent bonding capability - Bonds to porous and non-porous surfaces

  • Breathable coating – Allow moisture to escape and air to dry the substrate

  • Strength – Has the same properties as concrete

  • Works with both negative and positive side pressure

Positive-side waterproofing creates a waterproof barrier on the side of the surface in question that has applied hydrostatic pressure. On a foundation, for example, this would be the outside surface closest to the soil. 

Negative-side waterproofing, on the other hand, protects the surface that is opposite the side that has applied hydrostatic pressure. An example of this would be the inside of a basement wall. In addition to keeping moisture out, these coatings can prevent damage from mould, mildew, and water infiltration.

 

  • Resists carbon dioxide and chloride ion diffusion - Prevents concrete cancer and spalling

Features

FIBREBOND cementitious waterproofing also has the added features over standard cementitious waterproofing coating, including:

  • Fiber-reinforced - Provides excellent crack-bridging properties and strength through reinforcement

  • Flexibility - Allows the product to accommodate for natural movement of a structure

  • Becomes part of the structure - FIBREBOND is not merely a surface coating, added polymers ensure that FIBREBOND chemically bonds to the concrete substrate and becomes part of the structure

  • VOC Complaint - Does not contain any petroleum solvents

  • Easy to apply - Supplied as a two-part mix and can be applied by brush or roller

Uses
