Providing long-term waterproofing
PREPRUFE® is an advanced membrane system offering the safest and most reliable waterproofing option. Designed with synthetic adhesive layers, the patented Advanced Bond Technology™ enables concrete to aggressively adhere to PREPRUFE®, forming a unique intimate seal which prevents any water migration between the waterproofing and the structure, substantially reducing the risk of leaks.
PREPRUFE® protects a substructure from the harmful effects of water, vapor, and gas better than the competition. It can also be applied on wet concrete and is immediately trafficable after installation, which makes for fast and easy installation.
Preserving and protecting iconic buildings is essential for current and future generations, which was why the successful application of PREPRUFE® perfectly demonstrates the importance of specifying a geomembrane to fit the challenge. PREPRUFE® is not only fit for purpose, it is also economically and environmentally sustainable and deliverers waterproofing performance like no other system on the market.
Preventing water penetration and migration around the foundations, the application of PREPRUFE® will protect the building and its occupants for many years to come.
