Acrylic and Bitumen Waterproofing

When it comes to waterproofing, Weber offers two effective solutions: acrylic and bitumen. Each has its own unique set of benefits that make them ideal for different applications.

Acrylic waterproofing is a liquid-applied coating that forms a waterproof barrier on surfaces such as concrete, brick, and plaster. One of the main benefits of acrylic waterproofing is its easy application, available in various colours to match your roof. It can be applied using a roller or brush, and dries quickly, making it a great option for sloped roofs and parapets. Additionally, acrylic waterproofing is UV resistant, which means it can withstand the harsh South African sun without losing its effectiveness. 

Bitumen waterproofing, on the other hand, is a viscous, black or dark brown material derived from crude oil that waterproofs surfaces such as concrete, metal, and wood. One of the main benefits of bitumen waterproofing is its effectiveness in total water immersed conditions. It is not UV resistant and needs to be protected for a longer lifespan. It is often used for foundations, flat roofs, balconies, and ponds.

Another benefit of both acrylic and bitumen waterproofing solutions is their ability to prevent water from penetrating surfaces and causing damage. This is vital for protecting the structural integrity of buildings and preventing costly repairs in the future.

Weber also offers technical support and training for their waterproofing products to ensure that their customers are equipped with the knowledge and skills to use them effectively. This means that homeowners and contractors can have peace of mind knowing that their waterproofing job will be done correctly and will last for years to come.

In conclusion, Weber's acrylic and bitumen waterproofing solutions offer a wide range of benefits. Acrylic waterproofing is easy to apply, dries quickly, and is UV resistant, while bitumen waterproofing is ideal in total water immersion and if exposed to UV needs to be protected. Both solutions are durable and highly effective in preventing water penetration and should be applied according to the specification for optimal results.
