Water proofing methods vary depending on the extent of damage to the terraces.

9.1 Water proofing of terraces where only top portion is damaged :

Step 1 : Break unsound existing top layer.

Step 2 : Clean and compact brick bat coba.

Step 3 : Level it using mortar 1 :3 ( cement : sand ) mix and cure it.

Step 4 : Make polymer modified mortar using 1 kg cement + 3 kg of sand +1 kg of RESIKON 800 ( flexible polymer) using electrically operated mixer.

Step 5 : Apply polymer cement slurry using brush on the entire surface. RESIKON 800 modified mortar being flexible will take care of dimensional variation caused by atmospheric temperature variations. The layer should be around 5 mm thick.

Step 6 : Apply second coat of polymer modified mortar, if required.

Step 7 : Lay 20 mm screed having 5-10 % of RESIKON 400 in cement mortar.

Step 8 : Apply seal coat of RESIKON 400 + cement (1 :1).

Step 9 : Cure using water fog or damp gunny bags.

Step 1 : Clean the surface with wire brush or air jet.

Step 2 : Consolidate unsound grains of mortar by using diluted flexible acrylic ‘RESIKON FLEXISEAL “ ( 1 part of RESIKON FLEXISEAL + 2 parts of water)

Step 3 : Allow this consolidating coat to penetrate inside the cracks.

Step 4 : Apply single pack ready to use RESIKON FLEXISEAL using metal putty or wet fingers. ENSURE THAT THE CRACKS ARE FILLED COMPLETELY.

Step 5 : Allow it to dry.

Step 6 : For better protection against rain apply a coat of RESIKON POLYPROOF + cement (white or OPC ) with ratio of 1:1.

Note : Crack filling operation should be carried out during afternoon or evening to avoid to sudden water evaporation.

Step 1 : Open the existing cracks in V shaped groove preferably electrically operated culler.

Step 2 : Clean surface thoroughly with air or water air jet.

Step 3 : Apply consolidating coat using polymer RESIPOLYPROOF + cement (1:1 )

Step 4 : While consolidating coat is wet fill the cracks with two components RESIKON CFC (Mix component A 7 kg powder with component B 3kg polymer with a mechanical mixer ) using patra, a trowel

Step 5 : Finally apply with patra RESIKON FLEXISEAL in the cracks and level it. This last filling of RESIKON FLEXISEAL will take care of some dimensional variation caused by atmospheric temperature changes.

Step 6 : For better protection against rain apply a coat of RESIPOLYPROOF and CEMENT (1:1 ). Note : Crack filling operation should be carried out during the afternoon or evening to avoid sudden water evaporation.
Step 1 : Remove damaged concrete and clean with air pressure.

Step 2 : Remove loose rust from reinforcement by brush.

Step 3 : Apply to the rusted steel AMCOR RR
OR Apply to the rusted steel RESIKON RSK. The colour of steel will turn blue or bluish black ensuring the chelation reaction with iron and rust has taken place. If RESIKON RSK is used directly go to step 5.

Step 4 : After 24 hrs. of application of AMCOR RR apply RESIKON COASTAL + CEMENT (1:1 ) slurry.

Step 5 : On the damaged surface apply BOND COAT of RESIKON 400 + CEMENT (1:1).

Step 6 : Fix water tight shuttering.

Step 7 : Simultaneously prepare microconcrete by mixing RESIKON EMCRETE (1 kg of RESIKON EMCRETE + 125 gm of water ) in a mechanical mixer.

Step 8 : Pour the RESIKON EMCRETE slurry.

Step 9 : After 24 hrs. remove shuttering and carry out moist curing.

Grouting is most prevalent technique used for repairing cracks, reducing porosity, in foundation and strengthening the segment.

Step 1 : Identify the area where grouting using injection method is required.

Step 2 : Drill holes to a depth of 6 inches or as required using electrically operated drill machine with a gap of about 1 to 1½ ft. Fix ¼ inch plastic or metal nipples.

Step 3 : Prepare polymer cement grout using 1 kg of RESIKON 400+ 3 kg of 43 grade OPC cement with required quantity of water to make it flowable. Use mechanical mixer. ( Prepare this mix to last for not more than 1 to 1½ hrs. )

Step 4 : Inject the polymer / cement grout slurry through the drilled holes under pressure till it overflows. Alternatively allow polymer / cement grout flow through a tube from a height of 6 – 10 ft.

Step 5 : Seal the drilled holes using Cement Mortar containing 10 % polymer.

Step 1 : Clean the joints using scraper or brush.

Step 2 : Wash the joints with high pressure water jet.

Step 3 : Prepare Polymer / Cement grout using RESIPOLYPROOF + WHITE cement using 1 part of RESIPOLYPROOF + 1 part of cement.

Step 4 : Apply Polymer based dough in the joints by hand pressure.

Step 5 : Immediately clean the tile surfaces with damp cloth.

Step 6 : Allow setting for about 24 hrs.

Step 1 : Remove W. C. Pan, tiles, I.P.S., brick bat coba and expose slab.

Step 2 : Observe for any cracks. Fill it with water and try to detect source and location of leakage.

Step 3 : Clean the slab of dust, dirt, grease, or any oily material.

Step 4 : Inject polymer grout (RESIKON POLYPROOF + CEMENT, 1:1 ) using injection nipples.

Step 5 : Remove or cut nipples and apply water proofing coat using RESIPOLYPROOF 1 kg + cement 1 kg.

Step 6 : After one day apply one more coat of RESIPOLYPROOF / CEMENT slurry.

Step 7 : Cure with damp gunny bags for 5- 6 days.

Step 8 : On the wet surface lay polymer modified cement ( IPS) 15-20 mm using 1 kg of RESIKON 400 + 5 kg of cement + 15 kg of quartz sand specially near the drain outlet.

Step 9 : Place brick bat coba.

Step 10 : Place I. P. S. and fix tiles.
