Project: Sealing a balcony with Liquid Rubber BelowGrade
Description: A balcony always gets exposed to water and temperature fluctuations. Therefore, it is very important to realize a good waterproofing before a finishing layer is installed.
At this balcony, the up-stands were pretreated with Liquid Rubber HBS200 combined with Geotextile. After the Geotextile was placed in the HBS200, a second layer of HBS200 was applied directly on top. This way, this critical detail is fully waterproofed.
Afterwards, the entire surface was treated with a spray applied layer of Liquid Rubber BelowGrade. Liquid Rubber BelowGrade was chosen because the surface is going to be finished off with a tile layer so Liquid Rubber will get no UV exposure. Liquid Rubber HBS200 and Liquid Rubber BelowGrade vulcanize into a fully seamless membrane that ensure an extreme high flexibility of 900%. When the product is cured, a cemented based tile glue was installed and the tiles were placed on top of the Liquid Rubber membrane.
A high-quality waterproofing under the tile system that will last for many years.
