Preparation of waterproofing products
change according to the specifics of each project. Based on the technology you decide to use, the waterproofing must have a certain preparation that will make it effective and long-lasting.
The first thing to do is to clean the surface by removing the crumbly or unstable parts and the dust. Then you have to smooth the surface with suitable products. We advise you to use primers suitable for damp surfaces, so as to prevent the humidity of the substrate from coming into contact with the waterproofing (creating pressures that could detach the layer).
We remind you that not all substrates are suitable for all types of waterproofing. Furthermore, each type of primer has a specific drying time. To avoid applying the waterproofing material sooner or later we recommend that you read the technical data sheet.
Once laid horizontally or vertically, the waterproofing layer must be protected from shocks or other types of damage.
