Car Park Deck Waterproofing is an essential part of a multi-storey car park structure, providing protection from water ingress that causes structural damage to concrete car park structures and making the surface slip-resistant. Car park deck waterproofing systems are typically a cold liquid poured directly onto the concrete, providing a hard wearing, durable layer that prevents water ingress and makes the top car park layer skid-resistant.
The unique demands of Car Park Deck Waterproofing include the need to be able to withstand a wide range of chemicals and chlorides, from de-icing salts, oil and diesel spillages and exhaust fumes. In addition to this, the decks are exposed to mechanical stresses from heavy vehicles driving over the area.
Seal and Shield: Navigating the World of Effective Car Park Deck Waterproofing Solutions
As such, the best choice for Car Park Deck Waterproofing is a fully polyurethane-based membrane with strong crack-bridging properties, and high levels of abrasion resistance. This is why Sika’s MasterSeal Traffic 2205 is an ideal system to be used for the new build and refurbishment of car park structures.
Combined with Sika’s range of precast planks and drainage grids, this creates a complete system for the protection and repair of multi-storey concrete car park structures. This is a cost-effective and efficient method of protecting existing or new exposed concrete car parks against the risk of water ingress, thereby reducing maintenance costs and extending the life of the parking structure. This can also be used to protect concrete structures from abrasion and corrosion caused by salts, oils and diesel spillages.
