Roof waterproofing in Park View Erbil in IRAQ

Park View is one of the most prestigious projects in Arbil that is located on the airport road in front of Dream city and close to Erbil International airport. The project consists of 12 buildings which have been constructed in a circular form except from the ”Dream” building that it is placed in a rectangular way. Each building has 18 floors and offers spectacular view.

ALCHIMICA’s HYPERDESMO exposed concrete roof waterproofing system was chosen for the protection of this complex.

Total area = 5000 m2

The materials used in the application:


PRIMER: AQUADUR.

MAIN MEMBRANE: HYPERDESMO®-CLASSIC.

Sealing Solutions:HYPERSEAL®-2K-F for expansion joints with 5cm width.

For the big construction joints HYPERSEAL®-2K-F was used. HYPERSEAL®-2K-F is the two component, horizontal grade polyurethane sealant ideal for large expansion construction joints. Upon curing it produces a high performance waterproofing pourable sealant that remains elastic even below -40 °C with excellent chemical and mechanical resistance.

HYPERSEAL®-EXPERT 150 for corners and cracks (between wall & ground).

Exposed Concrete Roof waterproofing with reflecting materials in a residential block. Bangladesh

Bangladesh has a tropical monsoon climate with great seasonal variations in rainfall, high temperatures and high humidity. The monsoon rains cause water leakages that lead to corrosion problems in roofs, walls and basements both in residential and commercial buildings. In these conditions, structures tend to expose their limitations. Therefore, a waterproofing application should meet special requirements and it should not only to be effective in preventing the ingress of water into the structure, but also to be durable.

In those climates, it is also essential the buildup of a waterproofing system to include reflecting materials in order to reflect sun rays and repel heat. In this way we can reduce the need for air conditioning units, save energy costs and minimizing heat gain inside the buildings.

The multicolor HYPERDESMO® System was applied successfully in the exposed concrete substrate of the residential block in Bangladesh providing water tightness, ponding water and UV resistance and offering long-term performance.  

The materials used in the application:

Primers : Wide range of primers designed to work exceptionally with all our products and different kind of substrates, depending on the application and its needs.

HYPERSEAL®-EXPERT-150 : The novel, certified low modulus, highly elastic, thixotropic expansion joint sealant.

HYPERDESMO®-CLASSIC : The innovative, certified highly elastic waterproofing membrane with strong adhesion to many types of surfaces.

HYPERDESMO®-ADY-E : The aliphatic one-component polyurethane fluid, with excellent mechanical, chemical, thermal, UV and natural element resistance properties.

Bitumen membrane refurbishment and protection, St.John’s Co-Cathedral, Malta.

St John’s Co-Cathedral, the Roman Catholic cathedral dedicated to Saint John the Baptist, is one of the most impressive historical buildings in Malta and definitely a must-visit place of interest. It was built between 1572 and 1577 by the knights of Malta and It is well known as the ‘’Crown Jewel of Valleta’’ because of the great interior/exterior baroque architecture and the great art pieces, like the Beheading of St. John, one of Caravaggio’s masterpieces.

Apart from the fact that it is one of the finest examples of high Baroque architecture in Europe, it is worth mentioning that the cathedral contains nine richly decorated chapels on its two sides but also the cathedral has three clocks on one of its towers.

Project Requirements

Over the years 4mm reinforced bituminous membranes eventually protected the concrete roof. However, the membranes had started showing signs of deterioration and required repairs in some spots. The result of the exposure to intense elements such as fluctuating temperatures, strong sunlight and rain resulted in their aging and inevitably the harmful phenomenon of leakages that lead to substrate corrosion.

Given the importance of the monument and taking into account the sensitivity of a structure that is almost 500 years old, the application required a system that would offer advanced waterproofing performance, while being the least invasive solution, in order to not create any risks of damages while performing the works.

Based on the requirements, a seamless, fast curing liquid waterproofing application was needed as a roof repair solution. In that way, the project needed the non-humidity and water penetration of the roof deck, fire and mechanical resistance and an extended service life.

ALCHIMICA SOLUTIONS

ALCHIMICA’s innovative and reliable solution for bitumen membrane refurbishment protection based on the HYPERDESMO® System is widely known as a top-quality solution that offers long life expectancy, low additional weight on the structure and high flexibility and elasticity in cold temperatures.

In order to solve the problem of leakages and renovate the building’s roof the following system was applied, that provided high reflection and UV resistance, fully bondage to the substrate with detailed complexities, high elasticity and crack bridging even at low temperatures.
