KEMPEROL® 022 - Solvent-Free And Odourless Liquid Waterproofing For Indoor Areas Underneath Tiled Surfaces
Wherever water is present, effective, dependable waterproofing is required. Tiled surfaces provide a robust wearing course, but are never 100% waterproof. Moisture always manages to find its way through the joints and grouting into the substrate which can damage the fabric of the building. If preventative steps aren‘t taken from the outset, this can lead to expensive and unnecessary repairs.
KEMPEROL® 022 is a specialist indoor damp proofing solution to be used in a variety of locations such as bathrooms and wet rooms, to ensure that any surface that is likely to be in extended contact with water is sufficiently waterproof. Kemperol 022 is the perfect product to provide wet room membranes, shower membranes and general waterproof membranes for walls such as kitchens and indoor swimming pools.
This material can be applied in a single session and is waterproof from that time, furthermore, the KEMPEROL® 022 is odourless and solvent-free with full-surface KEMPEROL® 500 Fleece reinforcement to reduce any discomfort with installation and early use. The waterproof resin is a key element of Kemperol 022 that is able to provide high-quality waterproofing similar to the 2K-PUR with epoxy resin waterproofing to guarantee that water does not damage areas or materials that are not equipped to prevent it. Swimming pools and leisure facilities are ideal for KEMPEROL® 022 which can be applied swiftly with no additional fixes or boarding required for the waterproofing to be effective, further reducing the time of the work and any inconvenience.
The waterproofing can be applied wet-on-wet in a single process to any primed, stable surface, saturating a reinforcement fleece to create a membrane that cannot delaminate. The wet surface is subsequently scattered with KEMPERTEC® NQ 0408 natural quartz. This provides the perfect surface for tiles to be fixed directly on to the cured waterproofing using KEMPERDUR® MT mineral tile adhesive.
The waterproof resin bonds directly to the substrate and cures to provide a homogenous, seamless, elastic membrane incorporating all surfaces, penetrations and outlets without the need for additional jointing tape, mastics or sealants. The fleece reinforcement ensures that the waterproofing is permanently durable and withstands substrate cracks and joint movement.
