Understanding Cementitious Tanking Compound

Cementitious tanking compound is a remarkable substance, an alkali-resistant modified cement that has the ability to create a waterproof slurry coating. This coating acts as a formidable barrier against both dampness and water penetration. It’s a proven solution, widely utilised for waterproofing substructures such as cellars and basements.

But the applications of cementitious tanking go far beyond that. Here are some situations where this versatile compound has proven its mettle:

  • Recovery of Flooded Buildings

    When disaster strikes and your property falls victim to flooding, quick and effective action is paramount. Cementitious tanking can come to the rescue, creating a waterproof shield that helps in the recovery process.

  • Tanking Swimming Pools

    Swimming pools, a source of endless enjoyment, can also be a source of water-related headaches if not properly waterproofed. Cementitious tanking ensures that your swimming pool remains a source of pleasure, not a cause for concern.

  • Above Ground Level Waterproofing

    In certain scenarios, installing a traditional damp proof course might not be feasible for various reasons. Cementitious tanking steps in as a reliable alternative, ensuring that even above-ground areas remain protected from moisture intrusion.

The Benefits of Cementitious Tanking Compound

Now that we’ve established the versatility of cementitious tanking, let’s delve into why it’s such a popular choice for moisture control:

Robust Waterproofing

Cementitious tanking creates an impervious barrier that effectively prevents water from breaching your property’s structure. Its durability ensures long-term protection, making it a cost-effective investment in your property’s well-being.


As mentioned earlier, cementitious tanking is a versatile solution that can be applied in various settings. Whether you’re dealing with a basement, a flooded building, or an above-ground space, this compound can adapt to your needs.

Expert Installation

The efficacy of cementitious tanking depends on the quality of its application. At Wheatley Plastering & Damp Solutions Ltd, our experts excel in the precise application of this compound. You can trust us to deliver results that stand the test of time.

Cavity Drainage Membrane Systems: An Alternative Approach

While cementitious tanking is a robust solution for waterproofing, it’s not the only method in our arsenal. Another effective approach we offer is Cavity Drainage Membrane (CDM) systems. These systems operate differently from cementitious tanking but are equally effective in their own right.

CDM systems don’t aim to hold water back; instead, they create a cavity between the wet structure and a waterproof interior. Any water ingress is allowed to enter this cavity and is then collected in a drainage system, effectively diverting it out of the property. This approach is particularly useful in situations where you want to manage water ingress without creating a waterproof seal.
