What is a Liquid Waterproofing Membrane?

A liquid waterproofing membrane is a high quality, moisture curing elastomeric waterproof. It is seamless to fill and seal small voids, indents and tile grout lines.

These membranes are brush, roller or spray applied. On larger projects spray application can reduce application time due to increased coverage rates of up to 500m² per working day.

Liquid waterproofing membrane or (LAM) can be applied to podiums, roofs, green roofs, car park decks, balconies, terrace areas, water storage tanks and even waterproofing steps.

Liquid Waterproofing Systems are Ideal for Cities Like London with Hard to Access Areas

Liquid waterproofing systems have become increasingly popular in cities with hard to access areas. This even includes basement waterproofing. Southern Liquid systems regular carry out basement waterproofing in London.

The liquid waterproofing membrane is either rubber, acrylic, elastomeric, polyurethane, emulsion based, or as is the case with many modern systems resin based. Resin based waterproofing membranes often contain hybrid components.

A liquid waterproofing membrane is widely used to waterproof flat roofs and is highly suitable for complex details and irregular shapes. With chop stranded matting this can form to any shape and frequently used on different applications such as train fronts and car bonnets.

Liquid Waterproofing Membranes are Widely Available Throughout the UK, Europe and the USA

Liquid roofing membranes are widely available in both Europe and America where they have a long history as a waterproofing application.

These membranes have a 35-year plus service life.

Liquid Waterproofing Membrane Systems are Available in a Range of Colours

Many liquid waterproofing membrane systems now come in a multitude of colours. For large projects, any colour rail is available.

As the system is seamless this as previously stated can be applied with both green and brown roofing. This is because the roots of the vegetation are unable to dig into the waterproofing system.

Liquid Systems are Ideal for Green and Brown Roofing

Additionally, these systems are further suited to green and brown roofing as they are designed for zero falls and holding water.

With all these positive features, I’m sure that liquid membranes have a strong stand in the future.
