Foundation Slab waterproofing system.
A complete waterproofing system in new construction includes waterproofing the floor slab. Compared to the application on top of the concrete slab the installation of the waterproofing layer underneath the foundation keeps the foundation dry and the concrete provides a better thermal insulation.
Firstly, a primer such as KÖSTER Polysil TG 500 is applied to the clean, sound and solid substrate. This is a standard primer that locks existing salts into the substrate, hardens the substrate and provides a better bond between the waterproofing and the substrate.
The main area of waterproofing made of KÖSTER Deuxan 2C is applied in two layers with KÖSTER Glass Fibre Mesh embedded in the fresh first layer. It is generally recommended to embed the KÖSTER Glass Fibre Mesh between layers as it provides an easy control of the layer thickness and absorbs the forces created by movement in the building. Before pouring the foundation plate, PE-Foil is installed in two layers to act as a gliding layer between the waterproofing material and the concrete. The waterproofing layer needs to be protected by a layer of unreinforced concrete. The vertical waterproofing is connected to the horizontal waterproofing layer which extends beyond the footprint of the slab.. A fillet made from KÖSTER Deuxan 2C or KÖSTER Repair Mortar Plus is to be installed in the connection area.
