Waterproofing During Monsoons
Tremco India Private Limited brings together solutions for complete waterproofing of various structures. Our solutions cater to Buildings, Infrastructure as well as Industrial Structures. Rains do not allow waterproofing to continue as most waterproofing materials do not function or cure adequately in presence of moisture or the high humidity of monsoons. Tremco’s Revolutionary Moisture Triggered Technology, used in TREMproof® 250GC and Dymonic® 100, uses available moisture to trigger / accelerate the cross-linking process to ensure complete curing of the waterproofing barrier / sealants. Some of the key waterproofing systems based on Moisture Triggered Chemistry are-
This cold fluid-applied elastomeric modified polyurethane waterproofing membrane is rapid-curing, high solids, VOC-compliant and can be applied to damp or green concrete. It is a one-part moisture-curing elastomer available in two viscosities: self- levelling and roller.
TREMproof® 250GC can be applied in as little as 24 hours following the removal of concrete forms. It can also be applied to damp concrete, reducing the delays associated with rain or other sources of moisture. The unique ability to catalyze TREMproof® 250GC SL with water when desired will speed cure times, especially in cold temperatures and low relative humidity, to further condense the construction schedule. TREMproof® 250GC can be applied at a rate of up to 3 mm in a single lift to speed application without sacrificing performance. It can also be applied in multiple lifts to achieve a 6 mm, high- build system when maximum protection is required.
TREMproof® 250GC is highly elastomeric (Elongation > 500%), adheres well (peel adhesion > 30 N/cm), has a high crack bridging ability (> 1.5 mm) and can remain exposed to UV for about a month, before it needs to be covered. This makes it the material of choice to continue waterproofing during the monsoons.
High Performance Moisture Triggered Chemistry Sealant: Dymonic®100
Dymonic® 100 is a high-performance, high-movement (-50 to +100%), single-component, low-VOC, UV-stable, non-sag polyurethane sealant. Dymonic 100 is a durable, flexible sealant that offers excellent performance in moving joints and adheres tenaciously once fully cured. Typical applications for Dymonic 100 include expansion and control joints, precast concrete panel joints, perimeter caulking (windows, doors, and panels), aluminium, masonry and vinyl siding. Dymonic 100 is also effective as a fluid applied flashing material in rough opening perimeters for fenestration/window, door and curtain wall applications. Dymonic 100 adheres to green and damp concrete, shows outstanding sag resistance when used in wide joints, shows excellent weathering characteristics, is non-yellowing and paintable.
Since 1928, Tremco has developed the most comprehensive, world class “Six-Sided Waterproof Building Envelope” protection systems. Tremco India brings these 90+ years of experience in waterproofing, sealing, fireproofing and glazing along with a range of outstanding product systems to India. We commit to bring the best-established practices to the Indian market, with a strong focus on global standard specifications. We establish and encourage accountability in terms of both materials and application, which translates to better value for money for our customers.
