Retrospective internal basement waterproofing
The protection of the building fabric from continued destruction from water, is the main topic of construction restoration. If buildings constructed in the ground are not protected from moisture, they will fall into ruins. A damp wall is also a thermal bridge, which can attract further damage. In the face of rising energy prices, a dry wall contributes to a reduction in energy costs. Other aspects for restoration are, of course, better living comfort and increased value of the property. Retrospective internal waterproofing in basements, is the most efficient means to satisfy these requirements.
Waterproof the exposed, load-bearing wall area with AQUAFIN-1K. Once hardened, apply a second or third coat if necessary of AQUAFIN-1K.
On substrates, where there is a risk of cracking, waterproofing is carried out to the exposed, load bearing wall area initially with AQUAFIN-1K. Once hardened, apply two coats of AQUAFIN-RB400 by brush or trowel.
Apply a full coverage splatterdash coat of THERMOPAL-SP to the waterproofed substrate, to improve the bond of the subsequently applied restoration plaster.
Apply a single layer of THERMOPAL-ULTRA up to max. 3 cm. After allowing to stand for an adequate amount of time, the surface can be grid floated or rubbed down.
Apply the fine grain mineral-based compound THERMOPAL-FS33 by trowel to the required thickness up to max. 3 mm. Once the surface has dried, rub down with a foam rubber board, felt board or sponge board.
