What is Hydrotech waterproofing?

What is Hydrotech waterproofing?

Monolithic Membrane 6125® (MM6125®) is a thick, tough, flexible, self-healing membrane for use in waterproofing and roofing applications. MM6125 is a special formulation of refined asphalts and synthetic rubbers.

What does Monolithic membrane mean?

In a monolithic membrane system, liquid materials are applied in bonded layers to provide a fully gap-free roof surface. All components become an integral part of the monolithic membrane. The installed product has excellent adhesion to the existing roof deck substrate.

What Hydroflex 30?

Hydroflex 30 is a specially formulated heavy duty, rubberized asphalt, protection sheet with synthetic fiber reinforcement.

What is crystalline waterproofing?

Crystalline waterproofing is a technology that involves the development of crystals to help achieve watertight concrete structures. | Penetrates concrete, seals capillaries & hairline cracks, & remains waterproof even if surfaces are damaged​.

What is hot applied waterproofing?

Hot rubberized waterproofing systems are fluid-applied membranes that consist of a blend of asphalt and modified rubber polymers containing mineral stabilizers. These waterproofing systems allow for creating monolithic membranes that can cover a large surface area.

What is a monolithic roof?

A monolithic roofing system is a roof system where the membrane is one layer. Examples would be silicone roof coating systems or spray-on roofing systems. These would include metal roofing systems, Built-up roofs, TPO, EPDM, and PVC, which all have mutable seams.

What is negative side waterproofing?

Called negative-side waterproofing, this technique involves applying product to the dry or inside face of the surface. Negative side waterproofing prevents water from entering occupied space, but it does not prevent water from entering the substrate.

What is crystalline waterproofing used for?

Crystalline waterproofing technology improves the waterproofing and durability of concrete by filling and plugging pores, capillaries, micro-cracks, and other voids with a non-soluble, highly resistant crystalline formation. The waterproofing effect is based on two simple reactions, one chemical and one physical.

What is polyurethane waterproofing?

Polyurethane Waterproofing finds its usage in the formulation of different coatings. The polymer is basically a modified acrylic hybrid system and the coatings formulated using these acrylic polymers are generally applied for waterproofing of roofs, toilets, water tanks and swimming pools.

What is a blindside wall?

(Blindside is a positive-side application—meaning it goes on the outside or the soil side of the foundation wall. Negative side waterproofing is on the inside of the wall). Blindside, sometimes called pre-applied, is a term used to define the membrane type as well as the installation process.

How much does it cost to waterproof a roof?

The cost is approximately Rs. 50 per square feet. Hence for 1000 square feet roof, the cost comes to Rs. 50,000 which makes it expensive.

Who are the authorized Hydrotech applicators for mm6125?

One of the reasons MM6125 has been so successful in the market place is that MM6125 can only be installed by “trained” authorized Hydrotech applicators. MM6125 is sold direct, not through a distributorship.

What is the recycled content of Hydrotech mm6125?

MM6125 has a minimum 40% recycled content; validated by UL. One of the reasons MM6125 has been so successful in the market place is that MM6125 can only be installed by “trained” authorized Hydrotech applicators. MM6125 is sold direct, not through a distributorship.

What kind of applications can Hydrotech membrane 6125 be used for?

The following depicts typical waterproofing applications where Hydrotech’s Monolithic Membrane 6125 can be used. Horizontal Applications… such as plazas, parking decks, tunnels, bridges and mud slabs. Vertical Applications… such as foundation wall waterproofing and planters.

What is the thickness of the mm6125 membrane?

MM6125 is typically installed at 215 mils thick in the fabric reinforced assembly. This is more than three times thicker than most other waterproofing membranes. Thickness is an important benefit in that MM6125 exhibits the ability to self-heal and better accommodate developing cracks in a concrete substrate.
