External (Type A) waterproofing system based on cold applied, self-adhesive sheet membrane.
Exterior basement waterproofing with KÖSTER KSK cold applied, self-adhesive waterproofing membranes is fast, clean, and easy. No drying time, instantly watertight, with a tight control on consumption. Apply a primer coat of KÖSTER KBE Liquid Film diluted 1 to 2 with water on clean, solid substrates. In temperatures below 5°C down to -10°C use KÖSTER KSK Primer SP. Pipe penetrations are sealed using flanges cut to size from KÖSTER KSK Membranes. To avoid stresses in the elastic waterproofing, rounded fillets made of KÖSTER Repair Mortar are installed at all internal corners.
The area waterproofing is generally made with KÖSTER KSK SY 15. It is applied crease-free to the substrate. The membranes are overlapped by 100 mm. All overlaps are overcoated with undiluted KÖSTER KBE Liquid Film. On vertical areas the top edge is mechanically fastened and these fasteners are also coated with KÖSTER KBE Liquid Film. In low temperatures down to -10°C pre-condition the Koster KSK SY15 to a temperature of + 20°C. In this case the overlapped edges, corner details and mechanical fasteners are overcoated with KÖSTER BS 1 Bitumen Paste.
Before backfilling the waterproofing should be protected from mechanical damage and settling with below grade insulation boards, protection boards, or 3 layer drainage sheet.
