To start the year, we will continue to talk about WATERPROOFING.
Cementitious systems are polymer-modified systems for the waterproofing of many types of surfaces - for example in drinking water tanks, civil works, etc. They can be applied manually (by roller or trowel) or by spraying. They are divided into:
- Rigid systems, not suitable for surfaces at risk of cracking
- Flexible systems.
We also find monocomponent and bicomponent systems. As with liquid systems, we must not forget the importance of a good pretreatment of the substrate.

CHARACTERISTICS of cementitious waterproofing systems:
- No working joints, elastic and high crack bridging capacity
- Sometimes it is necessary to apply a bonding bridge on the substrate.
- Highly compatible with mortar and concrete elements.
- Some of these cementitious systems operate with negative hydrostatic pressure, i.e., the membrane is applied on the opposite side of the element that is in contact with the water.
