This is where application of a membrane like PREPRUFE® can prove extremely effective. PREPRUFE® is easy to install and provides a strong protection against migration of water, moisture and gas. It is also UV resistant and delivers great results even in harsh conditions or environment.
SILCOR® 1100 is a structural waterproofing membrane designed for buried application and the protection of concrete structures.
