  • RIW Cementseal is polymer modified to give excellent adhesion and abrasion resistance.
  • Dense matrix offers low permeability to water, even at 10 bar pressure.
  • Totally waterproof and will also resist negative water pressure.
  • Gives enhanced resistance to carbonation.
  • Will readily accept flooring and other decorative finishes.
  • Materials are pre-packaged and only require mixing on site to give a slurry, which can then be easily applied by brush, squeegee or spray.
  • Non-toxic when cured.
  • CE marked.


  • The areas to be treated must be free from all unsound material, e.g. dust, oil, grease, corrosion by-products and organic growth.
  • The strength of the concrete sub-base should be a minimum of 20 N/ mm².
  • Deck or floor areas should be primed with RIW Cementseal Primer.

Application temperature:



Protect the mortar from strong sunlight and drying winds with RIW Cementseal Primer, polythene sheeting, damp hessian or similar.


  • Designed to be used to prevent water ingress into basements, cellars and other below ground structures.
  • It can also be used for temporary waterproofing in new construction, to protect from water ingress prior to weatherproofing of the structure.

General information


Totally waterproof; Resists up to 100m head of positive and negative water pressure; Seamless and fully bonded; Applied to damp surfaces; Abrasion and impact resistant; Quick and easy to apply by hand or spray; Environmentally friendly; Enhanced resistance to carbonation


Cement based, modified polymer


RIW Limited’s waterproofing products will, subject to normal service conditions, provide an effective barrier to the transmission of liquid water and water vapour for the life of the building in which they are incorporated., The products must be installed in accordance with RIW written instructions, and following installation must not be subjected to any damage or long-term UV exposure

Product Options

Primer/ curing agent:

- RIW Cementseal Primer:

  • An environmentally friendly, multi-functional water based compound, formulated on an aqueous acrylic copolymer.
  • The product chemically reacts with cement, to produce a durable surface seal, which stabilises the substrate and reduces the evaporation of water.
  • Provides efficient sealing of horizontal concrete substrates, by stabilising the surface and preventing out-gassing, prior to the application of RIW Cementseal.
  • The product will also act as a curing agent for newly placed cementitious mortars and coatings, by helping to reduce the amount of water evaporating from the surface.
  • The primer is also used when applying joint tape.

Joint tape:

- RIW Cementjoint:

  • An advanced, elastomeric, highly tear resistant, breathable, waterproof composite tape.
  • Permanently elastomeric composite membrane embedded in backing fabric, exhibiting over 600% elongation.
  • Impermeable to water under 10 bar hydrostatic pressure, yet allows the free passage of water vapour.
  • Good UV and weathering resistance and highly resistant to a wide range of chemicals.
  • When embedded in RIW Cementflex, it gives a highly flexible, impermeable seal over ‘live’ cracks and expansion/ construction joints.
