A basement or any below-ground structure that is formed by a base slab, walls and a top slab, is partially or fully exposed to the surrounding soil and groundwater, resulting in specific exposure and stress from the prevailing permanent or temporary environmental conditions. Today new building owners generally request a service life of 50 years or more, and for structures such as tunnels up to 120 years. Any lack of watertightness severely reduces the long-term durability of a building or other below-ground structure and badly affects its planned use, as water ingress will result in physical attack and deterioration of the concrete. This leads to expensive structural repair works, damage or loss of interior finishes and goods, operational downtime, or serious impact on the internal environment from damp and condensation.

The selection of the appropriate waterproofing method, the project specific design of the chosen waterproofing system and its correct installation on site are key elements in minimizing the Total Cost of Ownership. A waterproofing system typically amounts to less than 2% of the total core constructions cost, yet the selection of a high quality waterproofing solution can easily save this amount or more, in future maintenance and repair costs over the service life of the structure.

Sika provides full range of technologies and systems used for below ground waterproofing. This includes highly flexible membrane systems, liquid applied polymeric membranes, watertight concrete admixtures, joint waterproofing systems, waterproofing mortars and coatings, as well as injection sealing grouts. All of these solutions are designed to be used together to meet the specific needs and requirements of owners, architects, engineers and contractors on site.

Our expertise is combined with more than 100 years of experience from all around the world, in providing successful waterproofing solutions for building basements and below ground civil engineering structures, such as:

  • Basements of residential and commercial buildings  Underground parking areas
  • Metro stations
  • Road and Railway Tunnels
  • Shafts
