MC-Plan membrane waterproofing system
Oct 26, 2021
Waterproofing is a fundamental aspect of creating a building envelope and protecting the structural integrity. They are the systems reliable and durable waterproofing solutions that can fulfil the requirements of external areas such as roofs, terraces and even the most demanding below-ground structures, including those exposed to highly aggressive ground conditions and stress. A waterproofing membrane is a layer of water-tight material that is laid onto a surface to prevent water leaks or damage. They generally classified into liquid applied or pre-formed sheet membranes. Membranes must be selected based on environmental conditions such as rain, temperature variations, usage conditions, durability, and desired aesthetics. The membranes are generally applied in multiple layers. It is the application in multiple layers which ensure uniform thickness and performance over the complete applied area. If the product selection is apt and applications are well adhered to, the waterproofing system can preserve the structure for years.
Above vs Below Grade Waterproofing
Waterproofing may be categorized in two main applications- The Above grade & Below grade which are considered important when selecting a waterproofing membrane. Above grade applies to all of the structure that is above the ground level, while below grade refers to any portion of the structure that is located below the ground level. Above-grade waterproofing systems must be breathable to prevent liquid from seeping into the space, but allow water vapor inside the wall to escape. Below-grade waterproofing systems must be resistant to hydrostatic pressure and chemical erosion, be able to perform in high groundwater, have a low absorption rate, uniform thickness, and be flexible.
MC- Bauchemie India provides both Above and Below grade waterproofing systems for your project requirements. The company’s waterproofing membranes prolong the lifespan of a building/ structure by limiting any moisture that may intrude and cause rust, rotting, corrosion, structural defects etc.
MC- Bauchemie India Waterproofing Membrane Product Range;
MC-Nafuplan 15, Self-Adhesive– Modified Bitumen Membrane -a Self-Adhesive, Fully Bonded, SBS membrane with 1.5mm thickness that provides strong bonding strength with the substrate. It has Heat resistance and good elongation properties. It provides good resistance for ground chemicals, salts, chlorides and sulphates and is a good vapour barrier. The waterproofing membrane is easy to install and suitable for unconfined areas.
MC-Plan 120 IN, Non-Reinforced PVC Membrane for Waterproofing- a flexible membrane made of Polyvinyl Chloride having a thickness of 2mm. It is a non-reinforced, opaque, flexible membrane made of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) with the dual-tone with the indicative top facing signal color.. This membrane can provide a continuous, seamless waterproofing layer when all the joints of the membrane are welded with a suitable hot air welding machine. MC-Plan 120 IN has good root resistance properties so it is very suitable for waterproofing of terrace gardens or rooftop waterproofing with a suitable protective layer. It provides good water resistance with properly welded joints.
MC-Plan 312 PA-IN, Pre-Applied, Fully Bonded HDPE Membrane – A membrane with 1.2mm thick that provides unique bonding with concrete poured against it to prevent lateral water migration. It has zero permeability to moisture and gases and offers good resistance for ground chemicals, salts, chlorides and sulphates etc. The membrane is easy to install and suitable for both confined and unconfined areas.
MC-Plan 315 PA-IN , Pre-Applied, Fully Bonded HDPE Membrane- A membrane with 1.5mm thick that provides unique bonding with concrete poured against it to prevent lateral water migration. It has zero permeability to moisture and gases and offers good resistance for ground chemicals, salts, chlorides and sulphates etc. The membrane is easy to install and suitable for both confined and unconfined areas.
