Waterproofing Systems

BS 8102: 2009, the code of practice for the protection of below ground structures from water from the ground, defines three types of waterproofing system – Type A, Type B and Type C. Any of these, or a combination of two or more systems, may be specified in a structural waterproofing project.

To make life easier for the specifier or contractor who ideally will be looking for a single point of supply and support, Triton supplies a comprehensive range of each type of system. All Triton’s systems are backed up with expert technical support.

Fully Bonded Sheet Systems

TWS-EX100

TWS-EX100 is a self-adhesive sheet membrane constructed from an oriented cross laminated HDPE sheeting and a bitumen-polymer adhesive compound. The tough, durable sheeting has an overall thickness of 1.5mm. Its primary use is for internal and external tanking to prevent the ingress of water and waterborne aggressive salts such as chlorides and sulphates penetrating concrete structures.

Being water and vapour resistant, TWS-EX100 has many waterproofing applications including foundations, basements, roofs and decks, lift shafts and pits, car parks, subways, bathrooms and balconies. A unique feature is its selvedge that enables a fast and secure seal on all side edge laps.

Triton supplies a range of ancillary products for the installation of this membrane. Please refer to the ancillaries section below. Detailed application guidelines are downloadable – see below.

  • Water and water vapour resistant
  • Fully bonded system
  • Rapid sealing and bonding
  • No heating or drying required
  • Fast and easy application
  • High puncture resistance

TWS-EX100 is available in 19.05M x 1050mm rolls.

TWS-EX100GM

TWS-EX100GM is a highly efficient waterproofing membrane which also acts as a barrier to Radon, Methane, Carbon Dioxide and other ground gases and contaminants.

A selvedge of bitumen rubber facilitates easier lap seals.

Triton supplies a range of ancillary products for the installation of this membrane. Please refer to the ancillaries section below. Detailed application guidelines are downloadable – see below.

  • Highly efficient waterproof membrane
  • Effective barrier to Radon and other ground gases
  • Fully bonded system
  • Highly puncture resistant
  • Cold applied

TWS-EX100GM is available in 28.6M x 1050mm rolls.

Case Study button

TT Vapour Membrane is a ready blended coating that once cured, provides a waterproof Methane and Carbon Dioxide barrier. Triton TT Vapour Barrier can be retro-applied as a waterproof and gas-proof membrane to concrete, masonry and brick substrates or as an alternative to sheet membranes in new construction. It can be applied by airless spray, roller or brush to walls, floors and soffits.

Triton TT Vapour Membrane Application Video
Triton TT Vapour Membrane being spray applied to the ICF insulating formwork system of a large basement construction. TT Super Admix was added to the concrete mix for the base slab and the ICF formwork infill, to provide a type B waterproofing system, as defined in BS 8102.  TT Vapour Membrane was then spray applied to the ICF formwork as the primary waterproofing layer.

Tri-Seal

Damp proof membrane and water vapour suppressant

Tri-Seal is a solvent free, two part epoxy resin coating, typically used as a surface damp proof membrane and a water vapour suppressant. Ideal for use beneath raised access floors, in plant rooms and bunded areas. It is also suitable for application on damp surfaces, such as sand/cement and cement floors subject to rising damp or containing residual construction moisture. Tri-Seal can be used as a general purpose coating for surfaces subject to foot and light wheeled traffic. Tri-Seal can be applied using a brush or medium pile roller onto sound, clean surfaces. NB New concrete subfloors or sand/cement screeds should be left for a minimum of seven days to cure before applying this product.

Tri-Seal is available in 2.5 litre, 5 litre and 20 litre packs.

Cementitious systems

Triton TT55

A single component, polymer modified cement "tanking" system for walls and floors, designed to be applied as a waterproof slurry. TT 55 is a highly effective damp proof membrane for brickwork, concrete or any cementitious substrate.

Surfaces to be treated with TT55 should be correctly prepared, free from all loose materials and contaminants and be in a sound and solid condition. For application to floors, TT55 should be applied directly to the structural slab. For wall applications, TT55 should be sandwiched between sand/cement render coats. For all TT55 applications, special attention should be given to wall/floor junctions.

TT55 is available in 25kg bags or tubs

NB: Triton Fillet Seal is a pre-packed, cement based and polymer modified product for use as a floor to wall junction seal during waterproofing works when using cementitious slurry coatings such as TT 55 and renders. Fillet Seal helps to ensure a smooth transition between horizontal and vertical surfaces that minimises the risk of leaving gaps or holes unsealed during the waterproofing works.

Triton TT55/TTME

Triton Tanking Mix Elastifier (TTME) is a plasticiser-free dispersion which is designed to be mixed with TT55 to produce a flexible waterproofing coating suitable for either vertical or horizontal surfaces. It is ideal for areas which are liable to cracking or deformation of the surface, and can also be successfully used at wall/floor junctions.

10kg of TTME should be added to 25kg of TT55 and mixed thoroughly for approximately five minutes with a mechanical whisk. It can be applied by trowel, brush or mortar gun.

Triton TT Super/Triton TT Super (White)

Triton TT Super/Triton TT Super (White) picture

A surface applied system which waterproofs and protects concrete in depth. Supplied as a powder which only needs mixing with water before application on: basements/retaining walls, concrete slabs (floor/roof/balcony), construction joints, water retaining structures, swimming pools, reservoirs, sewage treatment plants, channels and potable water tanks.

When applied to a concrete surface, the active chemicals combine with the free lime and moisture present in the capillary track to form insoluble crystals which block capillaries and minor shrinkage cracks to prevent any further water ingress (even under pressure). However the product still allows the passage of water vapour through the structure, allowing the concrete to ‘breathe’. It also protects concrete against seawater, aggressive ground water and certain chemical solutions. Two versions of this product are available, please refer to the chart below before specification:

Triton Fillet Seal

Triton Fillet Seal is a pre-packed cement based and polymer modified product for use as a floor to wall junction seal during waterproofing works when using cementitious slurry coatings such as Triton TT55. In most circumstances, Fillet Seal needs only be mixed with water for use. Where extra adhesion is required, Triton SBR may be used. Note: Where water is leaking or seeping the use of Triton Quick Set is advised.

The use of Fillet Seal helps to ensure a smooth transition between horizontal and vertical surfaces that will minimise the risk of leaving gaps or holes unsealed during the waterproofing works.

Preparation:

Situations where the Fillet Seal will be employed should already have been prepared in accordance with the slurry coating or render specification. In the majority on instances, the Fillet Seal will be applied on to the slurry coated surface.

Triton Fillet Seal is available in 25 kg bags.
