Exterior areas of home like roofs, terraces and walls face the impact of rain and weather. Similarly, interior areas inside the home like bathrooms and kitchens have high water contact. From such areas, there is a high-risk of dampness seeping into the structure.Use Flex or HiFlex for double protection of high-risk areas of the home.
These polymer-based waterproofing products form a durable and impervious coating, blocking the entry of dampness into the structure. Flex and HiFlex coatings are flexible, elongating up to 50% and 100% respectively*, which reduces the possibility of cracks and makes them long lasting. They can also withstand high water pressure, up to 7 bars, which helps them withstand environmental conditions and high water contact inside the home.
All positive side exterior applications like terraces, sloping roofs, walls, balconies, and domes. In the interior, walls and floors of wet areas like bathroom, kitchen and sunken areas.

“Before using Flex , HiFlex, it is recommended to use WP+200 integral waterproofing liquid for all concrete, mortar and plaster applications”
Dampness causes corrosion of steel and formation of cracks in RCC, which reduce the strength of the structure. This makes the structure of the home hollow and weak from inside, eventually affecting its durability. Unfortunately, by the time dampness is visible, the damage is already done!
Dampness is like an incurable disease which makes your home hollow and weak from inside. Once dampness enters, it is impossible to get rid of it.
