Tanking & Waterproofing
Restoration UK offer effective solutions for waterproofing and tanking homes and buildings.
For wet and penetrating damp we offer simple tanking solutions which can be easily sprayed on to external or internal damp walls, masonry and brickwork including basements and cellars and our cementitous tanking slurries can be used on damp walls and substrates to turn damp rooms into dry habitable spaces.
Our tanking waterproofing products are designed to provide you with the best protection against damp and include not only our tanking slurries but also our cementitous plugs, bonding additive agents, replastering and fillet seals.
What is tanking slurry? Tanking slurry provides a solution to water leakage or seepage within your home. It works by formulating insoluble crystals, which then develop into water baring capillaries effectively blocking any further passage of water to ensure that your walls are made permanently water tight. It is supplied as a powder which you then mix with water to apply directly to concrete or cement renders in areas where waterproofing is needed. It can be used in conjunction with our instant cementitous plug to stop running water immediately and prevent damp.
Our tanking range also offers waterproof tanking membranes for floors in all types of buildings.
Our unique cementitious tanking slurry is the ideal waterproofing solution where water pressure is encountered within building structures i.e. cellars, bunds and other below ground areas. It is also suitable in providing a waterproof damp proofing barrier where damp proof course treatment may not be possible. The product is made up of many components, which give high water resistance, flexibility, salt resistance, good adhesion and set control in a form that only requires water for mixing.
Our Tanking Slurry is a premixed formulation of plastic modified hydraulically setting powder. When mixed with water and SBR Bonding Agent it can be applied to a masonry substrate to form a monolithic bond, blocking the passage of water as well as becoming an integral part of the structure.
SBR Bonding Agent should be used as a primer between coats and diluted 3:1 in the gauging water. This will create a structural waterproofing system commonly referred to as tanking within the industry.
In certain circumstances we recommend the use of Salt Neutralisers where there is evidence of Salt contamination in the area to be tanked. Fillet Seal and Restor Set Rapid are also available for pressure areas where the wall meets the floor and where there is running or weeping water.Brush or spray application.25kg covers approximately 10 square metres with one coat. We recommed using 2 coats (this usage will give 5 square metres per bag). Supplied in plastic container suitable for mixing.£50.00 excl. VAT £60.00 inc. VAT
Restoration UK Fillet Seal is usually used where wall meets floor.
Our fast setting fillet seal gives added flexibility and water proofing qualities at vulnerable pressure points, including corners where wall meets floor.
It can also be used for re-pointing or filling gaps prior to the first coat of Tanking Slurry.
1 x 25 kilo tub covers approximately 15 - 20 Linear metres.£70.00 excl. VAT £84.00 inc. VAT
Vandex BB 75 is a cementitious, efflorescence-free surface tanking slurry with hydrophobic properties, resistant to water and moisture.
Vandex BB 75 tanking slurry is applied by trowel or spray to surfaces such as concrete, masonry, and render, which have to be sealed and protected against the influence of water and moisture.
Once cured, Vandex BB 75 tanking slurry forms a waterproof coating (tested up to 7 bar). It can be employed against active and passive water pressures, and is approved for use in contact with potable water. The initial and final bonding capability of Vandex BB 75 is excellent, making it suitable for application to horizontal as well as vertical surfaces. It is durable, resistant to frost and heat afer setting, whilst remaining vapour-permeable.
The properties of Vandex BB 75 can be further enhanced by using the "Vandex PK75" or "Vandex Cemelast Liquid" polymers as a guaging solution - the resulting products being referred to as Vandex BB75 E and Vandex Cemelast.
Supplied in plastic container suitable for mixing. 25kg covers approximately 5 square metres - 2 coats.£60.00 excl. VAT £72.00 inc. VAT
Vandex PK75 is a liquid polymer that is added to Vandex BB75 to form an elasticised waterproofing slurry known as Vandex BB75E. One pack of Vandex PK75 is used for each 25Kg bag of Vandex BB75.
The addition of the PK75 polymer provides elasticity and enhanced crack-bridging properties to the waterproofing slurry which has been successfully tested up to 7 bar.
