In order for the restoration work to successfully preserve the monument in the long term, the material used has to satisfy certain requirements. Seals and coats have to adhere to a variety of substrates, including concrete and bitumen sheeting. In addition, systems are required which are able to bridge any cracks. The prerequisite for long-term protection against moisture penetration is a weather-resistant solution. To ensure that the original look is not lost, buildings must not be altered as part of the restoration process.
Triflex, the specialist for liquid applied waterproofing has developed solutions based on polymethyl methacrylate resin (PMMA) which adapts to the substrate like a second skin. Systems such as Triflex ProDetail, Triflex ProTect and Triflex BTS-P in combination with the thermal insulation system Triflex BIS can be applied in a variety of colours and surface finishes in order to retain the historical character. Thanks to their outstanding chemical and mechanical strength, the systems prevent moisture from penetrating in the long term. This has been confirmed by numerous successful restoration projects around the world. To guarantee safe application, Triflex holds training sessions prior to the construction phase. Moreover, this manufacturer also hosts regular practical seminars designed to introduce craftspersons to the world of liquid applied waterproofing.
