Damp Problems or Water Seepage? Call for Tanking Slurry!January 26, 2017
Has the recent rain given you a damp problem in your basement or cellar? There’s a brilliant product that may well sort it: Cementone Tanking Slurry – the chemical answer to water seepage and leakage in concrete and cemented structures.
TBS have found it a popular with tradesmen. They’ll admit that you never 100% guarantee a prefect cure to damp with a surface treatment, but they’re clear that Tanking Slurry goes a very long way.
It’s an internal waterproofing system that works by forming crystals where it detects water, which then block the seepage.
This makes it an ideal option for all kinds of jobs, including:
- Swimming pools prior to tiling or painting
- Cellar and basement conversions
- Bathrooms and kitchens prior to tiling
- Anything underground, like tunnels or maintenance pits
- Pre-stressed and pre-cast concrete units, including drinking water tanks.
The makers recommend 2 coats, one brushed one way, one the other, to get the fullest possible coverage (the tiniest gap or hole will start to seep). The great thing with Tanking Slurry is that it keeps reactivating the chemical process, so it continues to work for years.
The product is supplied as a powder in a 25kg drum. Mix with water and apply directly to the surface that needs protecting. No more struggling with rolls of membrane!
Tanking Slurry is non-toxic and breathable. It can be used on new or existing structures. It withstands hydrostatic pressure, so it can cope well with fluctuations in the water table.
It doesn’t wear or peel. It resists freezes and thaws. It covers and seals hairline cracks.
So, for any job you’re considering that involves water and the risk of seepage, look no further than Tanking Slurry.
