IMPLEMENTATION
BOX TYPE WATER PROOFING-Horizontal (40 mm Thick):

  • Clean the surface by broom.
  • Clean the surface by Wire/Coir brush to remove all laitance, loose particles, loose concrete lumps & oil stains etc. Wash the surface with water Jet.
  • All construction joints to be chipped by making V – Groove up to a depth of 25 mm and the same to be filled with 1:3 cement – sand mortar with approved cement waterproofing compound (200 ml / 50 kg of cement). Prior to do above activity, Acrylic polymer 1:1(Cement & polymer) should be applied on chipped surface as a Bonding Coat.
  • Place the cement slurry mixed with waterproof cement compound, which penetrates into lean concrete and fills porous areas.

  • After 24 Hrs. apply 10 mm thk. Protective coat over it by 1:3 cement-sand mortars with Polymer (200 ml / 50 kg of cement).
  • After 24 Hrs. Flood the treated area with water for 7 days.

BOX TYPE WATER PROOFING –

  • Clean the surface by Wire/Coir brush to remove all laitance, loose particles, loose concrete lumps & oil stains etc.
  • Wash the surface with water Jet.
  • Fix 15 mm thick rough porous stone slabs with the help of cement paste applied on internal face of stone slabs, having a gap of 15 mm between the external face of the RCC Structure and internal face of the slabs. The stone slabs are to be fixed side by side without leaving any gap between the edges. Maximum of 1200-1500 mm vertical layers of stone to be laid at a time.
  • Fill the gap between RCC structure and stone layer with cement grout mixed with Polymer (200 ml /50 kg of cement).
  • Apply 12 mm thk. Cement – sand mortar plaster with approved water proofing cement compound (200 ml / 50 kg of cement) over stone slab as protective coat.
  • After curing period, fix 20 mm dia. MS pipe where ever it required from inside & grout each socket with cement slurry mixed with waterproofing cement compound.

BRICK BAT COBA WATERPROOFING (average 150 mm thick.):
  • Clean the surface by broom.
  • Clean the surface by Wire/Coir brush to remove all laitance, loose particles, loose concrete lumps & oil stains etc.
  • Wash the surface with water jet.
  • Seal all outlets & test the leakage if any by ponding method.
  • All construction joints to be chipped by making V – Groove upto a depth of 25 mm and the same to be filled with 1:3 cement – sand mortar with approved cement water proofing compound (200 ml / 50 kg of cement )
  • Mark the required level as per slope given in reference drawings on permanent structure like parapet wall / slab. Ensure the thickness of entire treatment should not be less than 75 mm thick at zero slope ends.
  • Lay 1:3 cement sand mortar thoroughly mixed with approved cement water proofing compound (200 ml / 50 kg of cement).
  • Lay immediately brick bats over the mortar laid already. Ensure that the brick bats to be soaked in water before using it and the gap between brick bats should be 12 mm – 15 mm.
