Eliminating Water Leakage at the Floor/Wall Intersections of Basements

Eliminating Water Leakage at the Floor/Wall Intersections of Basements
Without a waterstop application (such as BIBAFLEX or SWELL-FLEX), water accumulated around the basement will be transmitted especially from the cold joints at floor/wall intersections. To prevent leakage, firstly, the intersection of floor concrete and wall concrete is deepened 3-5 cm and the joint is enlarged. The gap is cleaned thoroughly, filled with epoxy-based, non-shrink EMULZER Anchorage Paste, and filleted. And then, the surface can be insulated depending on its structure and characteristics.
