Cementitious waterproofing

Acrylic Cementitious waterproofing is a method of creating a waterproof barrier on concrete and masonry surfaces using an acrylic cement-based coating. The materials involved are cement mixed with waterproofing additives like polymers, acrylics, or other synthetic materials to enhance their waterproofing properties. 


Acrylic Cementitious waterproofing is a popular way to protect structures from water leaks, particularly in water-retaining structures. In this article, we’ll explore five compelling reasons why acrylic cementitious waterproofing should be your top choice.


5 Reasons Why You Should Choose Acrylic Cementitious Waterproofing

Breathable Barrier  

Unlike some waterproofing techniques that completely block moisture vapor, cementitious coatings allow some level of vapor to pass through. This breathability is beneficial, as it prevents moisture from getting trapped within walls, which can lead to mold growth and other problems.

Strong and Durable Bond

Cementitious coatings form a powerful bond with concrete and masonry surfaces. This creates a long-lasting and dependable waterproof barrier that can withstand years of wear and tear.


Versatility for Application

Cementitious waterproofing offers flexibility in its application.  It can be used for both positive-side waterproofing (exterior foundation walls exposed to soil) and negative-side waterproofing (interior basement walls). This makes it a suitable waterproofing solution for various needs.

Cost-Effective Choice

Cementitious waterproofing materials are typically more affordable compared to some other waterproofing options. This makes it a budget-friendly solution for projects where cost is a major consideration.

Simple Maintenance

Cementitious coatings are relatively low maintenance. Regular inspections for cracks and occasional touch-ups might be necessary, but they generally don’t require any special cleaning or maintenance procedures.

Applications of cementitious waterproofing

  • Terraces
  • Swimming pools
  • Basements (especially with additional waterproofing measures for high-water pressure areas)
  • Bathrooms (around showers and tubs)
  • Retaining walls
  • Balconies and patios
  • Ponds and water retaining structures (depending on the specific product)
