Integral Waterproofing Compound for Concrete

scroll down

Dubond’s Hydrobuild LW is specially formulated integral liquid waterproofing compound composed of surface active plasticising agents, polymers & additives. It is used as an additive for cement concrete, mortar & plasters. It makes concrete cohesive and prevents segregation. Hydrobuild LW is an integral waterproofing admixture for concrete and mortar which chemically converts the water soluble compounds present into concrete/mortar into stable water insoluble compounds. It is used in all types of concrete/mortar requiring water impermeability. It is based on high performance polymers. Conforms to IS 2645 : 2003 and IS 9103 – 2000 standards.

Features & Benefits

Increases Work Ability

Easier Placing

Better Compaction and Finishing by Acting as Viscosity Modifier

Higher Cohesion

Breaks the Salinity of Water by Converting Them Into Salt Crystals

Lower Water Requirement for Given Work ability

Chloride Free

Increases Extra Bonding Strength

Reduce Risk of Segregation and Bleeding

Reduce Risk of Shrinkage Cracks Due to Heat of Hydration

Reduce Risk of Honey Combing

Corrosion Resistant - Reduces the Risk of Rusting of Reinforcement by Breaking the Chain of Rust Electrons - Makes Concrete More Cohesive, Hence Protects Steel Better Against Corrosion

Method of Application

Charge Cement & Aggregates to Concrete Mixer as Per the Mix Design, Mix in Dry State for 12 Minutes

Start Addition of 75–80% Mixing Water & Mix for 2-3 Minutes

Hydrobuild Lw Is Added as Per the Recommended Dosage Into the Remaining Mixing / Gauging Water

Then Add to Concrete Mixer & Mix for Another 2 Minutes

Place the Concrete or Apply Plaster, as Needed

Cure the Applied Mortar or Concrete as Per Good Construction Practices
