EVALUATING THE PERFORMANCE OF CEMENTITIOUS WATERPROOFING SYSTEMS FOR CONCRETE

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) define waterproofing as the "treatment of a surface or structure to prevent the passage of water under hydrostatic pressure." This article evaluates the performance of new multi-material cementitious waterproofing coatings and describes the methods that test its waterproofability. In an experiment conducted by the authors, three cementitious waterproofing coatings designed for different applications are tested. Findings reveal that the test clearly differentiated between the waterproofing materials and that each material should be specified for waterproofing applications for which it is appropriate.
