FAQ

What is cementitious waterproofing mortar?

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.

What is the difference between rigid and flexible waterproofing?

Rigid cementitious waterproofing mortar is typically hard and non-deformable, whereas flexible cementitious waterproofing mortar is soft and deformable.

What waterproofing products shall I use for toilets, bathrooms, and kitchens?
