Cementitious waterproofing system in the UAE

Protect your building's concrete and masonry from costly water damage.

Water is incredibly damaging to concrete and masonry structures. When water seeps in from the surrounding soil or other sources, it causes corrosion, cracks, spalling, erosion, and destabilization over time. Preventing water ingress right from the start is crucial to ensure structural integrity and longevity.

Cementitious waterproofing is an intelligent, cost-effective solution for keeping water out. It involves applying a thick coating that contains cement, aggregates, and special waterproofing admixtures to form a seamless, protective barrier fused with the concrete itself. This advanced method seals the surface while still permitting vapor diffusion, preventing moisture buildup behind the coating. Concrete waterproofing in Dubai helps to reduces water penetration, leading to issues such as cracks, efflorescence, and, in the long term, structural damage.

How Cementitious Water proofers Work?

Cementitious waterproofing products contain Portland cement, sand or gravel aggregates, specialty chemicals, and polymers. When mixed with water and applied, the components react to form a tough, water-resistant coating that bonds with the concrete or masonry surface. This produces a continuous sealed layer that prevents water intrusion while letting moisture vapor pass through to avoid the issues caused by trapped moisture.

Cementitious coatings also bridge over cracks through their tremendous bonding properties and flexibility, continuing to protect surfaces from water damage. They can stretch and contract with the substrate during freeze-thaw cycles and seismic activity. These products provide waterproofing protection suitable for below-grade and some above-grade applications when properly reinforced.

Virtually any structurally sound concrete or masonry substrate is compatible including poured concrete foundations and walls, concrete block, brick, stone masonry, and shotcrete. After appropriate cleaning, prep, and detailing at joints and penetrations, the entire surface is coated to achieve a seamless barrier.

Installation and Curing Process

Though simple to install, careful attention to application details is vital to achieve waterproof integrity. The key steps include thorough cleaning and surface prep, priming if needed, applying two or more coats to proper thickness, and adequate curing. Our experienced professionals handle the entire process seamlessly from start to finish.
