CEMENTITIOUS CONCRETE WATERPROOFING
Description POLYPLUS CP
is composed of high quality cement, properly selected & graded inert aggregates, proprietary waterproofing active chemicals & additives. It is used as a chemically active waterproofing treatment for concrete. POLYPLUS CP when mixed with water and applied as a brush coat to concrete, it penetrates deeply into the capillaries of the concrete & protects it against the permeability of water.Areas of Application
- Water Retaining Structures
Water Excluding Structures
- Water tanks & reservoirs
- Swimming pools
- Water treatment works
- Dams & canals
- Concrete pipes
- Tunnels & subways
- Inspection pits & lifts shafts
- Retaining walls & sea defence walls
- Construction joints
- Bridge decks
How POLYPLUS CP works?
The proprietary waterproofing active chemical plays very important role & it is a very simple reaction with the natural chemical by products of cement hydration, such as calcium hydroxide, various mineral oxides, hydrated & unhydrated cement particles of the concrete in wet condition. The result of chemical reaction is the formation of billions of needles like non-soluble crystals which block the pores of the capillaries, voids & micro-cracks in concrete. After blocking, the pores & capillary tracts of the concrete become discontinuous which stops the permeability from all directions of the treated concrete. POLYPLUS CP remains active whenever water is present.
Pre-saturation & subsequent re-wetting of the surface will cause diffusion of the organic chemicals & formation of crystals by reaction at greater depth. It may take from seven days to one month to reach its maximum waterproofing capability, depending on the thickness of the concrete.
Environmental factors such as ambient temperature, density of concrete, moisture presence & weather conditions can affect the timing of sealing process. Under dry conditions, POLYPLUS CP lies dormant. However it becomes reactive whenever it is re-exposed to moisture.
It penetrates even against strong hydrostatic pressure, becoming an integral part of the concrete. The waterproofing chemicals remain active for the life of the structure, permanently sealing it for water seepage.
