Wet Room Waterproofing
Cementitious waterproofing mortar is a ready-mixed waterproofing compound used to protect structures against water infiltration. They are supplied as ready-to-use solutions either in one single component or two-component packs to seal against damp soil, seepage and percolating water. In addition, cementitious waterproofing mortar can also be used for the protection of concrete structures. Waterproofing mortars are often applied in water reservoirs, water retaining structures, basements, and other engineering structures as well as beneath tiling for swimming pools, balconies, bathrooms, and kitchens.
Rigid cementitious waterproofing mortar is typically hard and non-deformable, whereas flexible cementitious waterproofing mortar is soft and deformable.
In general, any cementitious based mortar and liquid applied bituminous coating are suitable be used for these areas.
Sikalastic®-1 KMY, a one component fiber reinforced, flexible cementitious waterproofing is the recommended product for swimming pool waterproofing before tiles for both wall and floor.
- To apply sealant in the prepared groove around the circumference between the PVC pipe and the concrete slab.
- To apply bituminous coating on the slab around the circumference of the PVC pipe and over the joint between the concrete and the pipe down to the internal wall of the PVC pipe.
Due to the porosity of the gypsum surface, Sika recommends a primer coat before the application of cementitious waterproofing. Sika® Primer-11 WMY is required prior to the application of SikaTop® Seal-107 (MY), SikaTop® Seal-109 MY and Sikalastic®-1 KMY.
