September – Keep the damp out

Keep the damp out with RESISTO

With the warm weather still lingering, it’s hard to imagine the shift to winter that will take place in a few weeks. September is a great time to think about waterproofing your home. RESISTO offers a number of coatings, sealers and membranes to help you get started.

  • RESISTOSEAL FOUNDATION COATING is composed of bitumen and fast-evaporating solvent. It is used for the damproofing for foundation walls, footings, retaining walls, wing walls, abutments and culverts.
  • RESISTO EXTERIOR PRIMER is a solvent-based primer containing synthetic polymers and adhesion-enhancing resins. It is used to prime and prepare exterior concrete, metal, wood and plywood surfaces to enhance the adherence of RESISTO self-adhesive membranes and waterproofing strips. Resistant to water, alcohol and most saline, alkaline and dilute acid solutions

The BASIC WATERPROOFING MEMBRANE is a self-adhesive membrane made of elastomeric bitumen and a trilaminate woven polyethylene facer. It is the ideal waterproofing solution for roofs as a base sheet in two-ply roofing systems. It can also be used for decks, balconies, patios, foundations and foundation cracks, shower bases and wash-up rooms.
