Liquid applied Waterproofing gives Condominio Costa Verde a new Look

BORGOSESIA/ITALY, February 13, 2014 - At the recommendation of the waterproofing company, D&F Impermeabilizzazioni, and the waterproofing specialist, Triflex, the management of the Condominio opted for the balcony coating system Triflex BFS in combination with the surface finish Triflex Creative Design.

After all, the Triflex system solution based on polymethyl methacrylate resin (PMMA) combines the qualities of a durable, waterproof thick-layer system with a decorative surface finish.
Within four days, the contractors of the waterproofing company, D&F Impermeabilizzazioni, based in nearby Prato Sesia, removed the leaking tiles over an area of around 100 m2 and coated the entrance areas and loggias with the Triflex system solution.

To this end, they firstly removed the old coating and cleaned and ground off the concrete substrate in order to create ideal adhesion conditions for priming with Triflex Cryl Primer 276. Following the prime coat, the contractors applied the fleece-reinforced detail waterproofing, Triflex ProDetail, to the wall junctions and joints. Any unevenness was compensated for by applying a scratch coat before the self-levelling mortar, Triflex ProFloor, was applied to the entire area.

With this coating, the substrate is ideally prepared for the surface finish using Triflex Creative Design. The Triflex Design Sheet with a tile pattern was adhered to the first layer of Triflex Cryl Finish 205 and a second finish layer was rolled over in which the terracotta Colour Mix was scattered in. The final finish with transparent Triflex Cryl Finish Satin permanently protects the surface from wear and mechanical loads. Upon removal of the design sheet, the weather-resistant coated entrance area boasted a high-quality tile design.
