In order to waterproof swimming pools, it is recommended to use epoxy-cement systems as they create a solid barrier against counter pressure as well as a resistant layer. Solvent-free elastic waterproofing resins protect the surface in a great way, preserving it from the aggressive action of chlorine and atmospheric agents. The protection of buildings from
In the 21st Century, with an always growing population, on one side, and the pollution increase, on the other, we no longer have excuses.

Among the best products that we can use to repair damaged bituminous membranes (and protected them afterwards), there are adhesive sealants without solvents, levelling pastes, water-based bituminous membranes and liquid membranes that reflect sun rays. The waterproofing action of bituminous membranes on flat roofs can be compromised by several factors, some of which are described
Restore substrates before waterproofing
Before any waterproofing operation, especially if you plan to use the new liquid membranes, it is necessary to uniform the substrates using innovative rapid setting mortars which can be used in extreme environmental conditions. The best way to prepare and restore substrates before waterproofing, and achieve maximum results, is to use solvent-free systems. The goal
The best waterptoofing products
How to choose the most appropriate products to waterproof specific areas of a house or building Instead of talking about the “best waterproofing product” we should refer to “the best waterproofing system”, since we have to consider the most appropriate way to solve a specific waterproofing problem.
