Waterproofing & Protective Systems
Since concrete and steel are not indestructible, it is important to protect both from elements such as water infiltration, freeze/thaw (which can create excessive movement) and salts. If left unprotected, the concrete can crack or spall, allowing water to penetrate deep into the surface and corrode the strength of the steel structure. This can lead to extensive and expensive repairs. Waterproofing can be a relatively inexpensive way to prolong the life of a structure.
Waterproofing can be useful in a number of ways: it can prevent water or chemical penetration, add aesthetic appeal, save money and help a structure hold up to the constant wear and tear of chemical and pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
In this industry, there are a variety of materials and methods used for waterproofing and protection.
