TYPES OF WATERPROOFING SYSTEMS OFFERED:

Bituminous membrane Waterproofing / Torch-on waterproofing

Bituminous waterproofing membranes, modified bitumen waterproofing membranes or commonly known as torch-on waterproofing membranes: Bituminous waterproofing membranes are manufactured with rubberized asphalt, modified plastomer / elastomer bitumen, the product is reinforced with a dual carrier spun bound non-woven polyester filament stabilized with fiberglass,  with,  some systems with special additives, the upper surface is finished with a special release material which is uniformly spread and calibrated in order to prevent the roll from sticking to itself  and available in various types of finishes and in some products provide an anti-slip feature. The lower surface can be laminated with a thermo fusible film. It can be applied in a wide variety of areas that requires waterproofing including flat, sloped and pitched roofs, reinforced concrete and prefabricated concrete, masonry cement, metal, decks, parking, insulated concrete, under flooring, garden roof, terraces and air/vapour barrier, foundations, tunnels and tanks. Bituminous membrane is usually applied by heating the bituminous blend using a gas burner or hot air guns and can be modified / manipulated as per constructive size and shape.

This system is coated by using a suitable aluminium or acrylic coating. The coating will serve as a decorative and protective coating that will protect the torch on waterproofing against ultraviolet degradation. The coating will need to be serviced as stipulated after application.

Bituminous / torch-on waterproofing have outstanding waterproofing capability and performance perfectly meets all architectural forms.

Cementituous Waterproofing

Cementituous waterproofing systems is a two component system: a blend of cement, graded silica sand and modified polymer / elastomer dispersion with fibre reinforcement which will support flexibility of the product. Some systems deliver good tensile strength and elongation properties. Cementituous waterproofing are used in a wide range of applications and areas, both water immersed and exposed including masonry areas for example parapet walls, pre-casted concrete, reinforced concrete, beams, ceiling platforms, balconies, terraces, patios, walls, silos, tanks, dams, pools, reservoirs, fish ponds, waterproofing under tile / floor, damp proofing of walls and surfaces for negative and positive water pressure, sealing of surfaces with rising damp, crack bridging and many more. These systems can be used with reinforcement fabric membranes or cloths made from various materials i.e. fibreglass, polyesters. Some cementituous waterproof methods can also be over coated with a suitable prescribed to coat for example epoxy, acrylic and polyurethane coatings. The top coat will also assist with UV degradation and will serve as a decorative coating.

Liquid Waterproofing

Liquid waterproofing methods also commonly known as membrane waterproofing systems, modified liquid waterproofing coatings, seamless liquid waterproofing system

There are a wide variety of liquid waterproofing products available; however it will fall within the following categories:

  1. Bitumen emulsions – can consist of a combination of bitumen / rubber / latex modified anionic bitumen emulsion. Some products can be used with reinforced mambrane
  2. Polyurethane emulsions – is water based seamless waterproofing membrane which consists of modified monomers / polymers, polyester and elements fused by carbamate or commonly known as urethane. Polyurethane liquid waterproofing is flexible and has outstanding chemical and UV resistance properties.
  3. Polyester systems and acrylic emulsions – water based waterproofing system reinforced by fibre membrane i.e. fibre glass or by incorporating a geo-fabric membrane
  4. Polyurea – modified polymer liquid with a combination of additives i.e. resins. The system is seamless with high tensile strength and elongation properties and excellent UV resistant properties
  5. Silane liquids – Silane / siloxane combination based liquid have excellent hydrophobic properties and effectively assists with water repellent impregnation and chemical resistance
  6. Cementituos Waterproofing

Areas of application of liquid waterproofing coatings:

  • Roofs, sealing joints, laps and roof screw, roof bolts / screws, flashings, vents, parapet walls, roofs, valleys and ridges
  • The Polyurethane and polyurea waterproofing coating can even be applied to wet areas i.e. bathrooms, kitchens etc.
  • Polyurea waterproofing coating can be applied to concrete, steel, structural linings, reservoirs etc. areas with total water immersion.

Other Services Include:

  • Lead Free and low VOC Floor Coatings
  • Chemical Resistant Coating
  • Roof Painting
TFS offer various product options from textured, lead free and low VOC paints. We regularly update our teams on latest trends and new product developments to ensure a modern high quality and updated service offering.
