This guide describes the use of a high solids content, cold liquid-applied elastomeric waterproofing membrane subject to intermittent hydrostatic pressure in a waterproofing system intended for installation on cast-in-place concrete vertical surfaces. Typical uses for these systems include planters and foundation walls with drainage system and others. The major components to be considered for a below grade building wall waterproofing system are the structural wall or substrate to be waterproofed, waterproofing membrane, membrane protection, and drainage system. The following considerations are detailed: (1) compatibility; (2) continuity; (3) substrate: strength, density and moisture content, admixtures, release and curing agents, finish, dryness, and joints; (4) waterproofing membrane: adhesion to substrate, terminations, and penetrations; (5) treatment and design of reinforced, unreinforced, and expansion joints; (6) protection course: impact resistance, compatibility, ancillary provisions, thermal insulation, and drainage composites; and (7) drainage system: drainage course, backfill, and drainage pipes. Illustrations of footing, treatment of vertical corners, and pipe penetration for the waterproofing system and treatment of reinforced and unreinforced joints are given.
1.1 This guide describes the use of a high solids content, cold liquid-applied elastomeric waterproofing membrane that meets the performance criteria specified in Specification , subject to intermittent hydrostatic pressure in a waterproofing system intended for installation on vertical cast-in-place concrete surfaces.
1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
