For buried basements (cellars, parking lots, garages...), permanent or temporary water infiltrations are common. It is important to find a solution, in order to avoid structural damage over the long term. In addition, these infiltrations also cause aesthetic and health nuisances (odors, saltpeter/mildew, mold...).
ARCANE Industries offer several solutions according to specific pathologies. During construction, it is preferable to treat the foundation with either our ARCABASE bituminous coating in emulsion (with mechanical protection) or with our even more durable ARCACEM waterproofing coating for foundations.
To treat leakage in a buried structure where it is no longer possible to intervene from outside (treating foundations directly is often impossible or too expensive), one must make a casing with our ARCACEM coated casing for buried works (because it is microporous, it lets the substrate breathe), or with our REVEPOXY ARC epoxy coating (Infiltrations in basements/cellars). In both cases, if water infiltrations are permanent and do not allow the application and drying of casing coatings, one must first treat the substrate with our fast setting patching mortar called ARCASTOP.
