Surface Applied Waterproofing: Technologies
Silyl modified polymer (SMP)
Our SMPs are acid-free, and perfect for a wide range of waterproofing installations. Bostik’s silylated modified polymers are capable of bonding to the same variety of substrates as a standard silicone sealant, but possess a much higher bond and peel strength.
Our bituminous solutions possess excellent resistance to water, dilute acids and alkalis, alcohol, and most salt solutions. This makes them ideal for waterproofing, particularly when using roofing materials.
Our range of cementitious solutions are ideal for working with swimming pools and other interior assemblies composed of tiling or tile-based substrates. We also produce cementitious products that are formulated specifically to combat positive water pressure.Read more
