ARCACEM BASEMENT CELLAR is a waterproof tanking system. ARCACEM is highly resistant to hydrostatic pressure (pressure from the outside against building structure).
ARCACEM BASEMENT CELLAR works by blocking the capillary pore structure of the concrete surface to liquid water ingress. ARCACEM remains permeable to water vapour ( which allows the struture to 'breathe'). Penetrating into the pores of the substrate, ARCACEM will become one with the building structure and cannot be pushed off by water pressure.
ARCACEM is a cement based waterproof tanking system made of hydraulic binders (cement powder, aggregates and chemical additives) and resins. ARCACEM is highly resistant to abrasion and erosion, and non-toxic.
ARCACEM can be applied to poured concrete, reinforced concrete, aerated concrete, traditional masonry, agglomerated masonry blocks, expanded polystyrene coatings, or asphat.
