External Bituminous Waterproofing
External Bituminous Waterproofing with Remmers.
It is always essential to check whether existing bituminous coatings are sound and have a good bond to the substrate before commencing the waterproofing works. Any loose or friable particles, flaking areas or other contaminants must be removed. If in doubt as to the existing materials condition, always decide on its removal. Sound bitumen waterproofing materials are prepared for refurbishment with a new coating, by cleaning with high pressure water jetting. The highest exposure stresses will always occur at the bottom, so the old waterproofing should always be completely removed here in every case, back to the sound masonry substrate. Kiesol waterproofing systems have become synonymous with durable waterproofing.
They have proved themselves over many years for all load and exposure conditions and all types of structures. The Remmers systems provide a reliable solution for every substrate. The mortar levelling systems and slurry coats for masonry substrates are highly sulphate resistant. Additionally the bitumen based bond coats and high polymer content slurry systems, have proved highly effective for many years in refurbishing and re-waterproofing old bituminous substrates. All Remmers slurry, levelling and high-build coating systems use ‘state of the art’ material technology. They are extremely easy to apply, manually or by machine. They are reliable and very economic in use. Many impressive references and numerous test certificates and waterproofing system inspection reports confirm the strengths of the Remmers system solutions.
