In situations where water or moisture is infiltrating sections of building material, injection or surface application of a waterproofing impregnation is often the most effective method of repair. Impregnations are ultra-low viscosity and therefore able to absorb (or be forced under pressure) into porous stone, masonry, and concrete. The impregnation will fill even the smallest of spaces, and combine with existing particles to make the structure water-resistant.
Benefits of Impregnations
- Can be applied as a preventative or remedial treatment.
- If applied as a surface treatment the substrate will not be damaged in any way – colour fastness should always be tested prior to application.
- Protects reinforcement steel and helps prevent the breaking of concrete.
- Will effectively protect almost any type of porous building material.
