Cementitious Waterproofing for Commercial & Industrial Buildings

Cementitious coatings are made of Portland cement held together by a binder. This provides superior corrosion protection to the substrate, making it ideal for use with steel and other corrosion-sensitive building materials.

The corrosion rate is slowed significantly because the coating maintains a pH above 4.0. This reduces the cost of maintenance and repairs and will extend the building’s useful life span by many decades.

The cementitious coating is easy to apply and will create a seamless finish. Once mixed, the cementitious slurry can be applied to the surface using simple tools and smoothed within moments. It’s resistant to chemicals and abrasion.

Cementitious coatings are also highly effective at bonding to non-porous and porous surfaces, including old and new concrete. It can be used on positive and negative sides to create superior structural protection.

This versatility and durability make it an effective solution for commercial businesses, homeowners, government agencies and more.

The Versatility of Cementitious Waterproofing Coatings

Cementitious coatings can be applied to a wide range of structures. However, they’re most often applied to structures that come in contact with moisture daily. This includes swimming pools, tunnels, dams, storage tanks, etc.

Once applied, it will not trap water vapor, which means it won’t blister and degrade as time passes. It’s also resistant to mold and bacteria growth.

Cementitious Waterproofing Coating FAQs

Will cementitious waterproofing change the color of a surface?

Cementitious waterproofing can change the color of the surface you’re applying it to. Most cementitious coatings are white or gray, so plan accordingly. Talk to our team today to learn more about our cementitious waterproofing coatings.

How long does cementitious waterproofing last?

In most cases, cementitious waterproofing will last about 10 years before it needs to be reapplied, though its service life will depend on the quality of the initial installation. At Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing, we offer long-lasting, high-quality cementitious waterproofing installations.

Will cementitious waterproofing materials affect groundwater?

No, cementitious materials don’t leave behind any VOCs or chemicals that will leech into the soil or the groundwater. They’re extremely safe to use and safe to dispose of at the end of their life span. To learn more about the safety of our commercial coatings and waterproofing systems, talk to our team today.

What materials can cementitious waterproofing be applied to?

Cementitious waterproofing is compatible with concrete, brick, drywall, cement mortar, cement plaster, ceramic tile, stone, gypsum underlayment and more. It can provide an effective waterproofing layer on a wide variety of products and surfaces, though it should not be used over expansion joints.

At Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing, we primarily use cementitious coatings for negative-side waterproofing of foundation walls.

How do cementitious coatings work?

Cementitious waterproofing reacts with the water in the concrete to form crystals that seal off the pores in the surface of the concrete. In this manner, it provides a self-healing membrane, as any water that finds its way into the concrete will cause the cementitious coating to form more crystals and seal off the opening that allowed the water to penetrate.
