Cementitious tanking compound is an alkali-resistant modified cement which produces a waterproof slurry coating preventing both damp and water penetration. Cementitious tanking has been used for providing waterproofing of substructures such as cellars and basements.
Tanking has also been successfully put to good use in many other damp proofing or waterproofing situations such as:
Cavity Drainage Membrane systems (CDM) unlike the cementitious tanking system, are not to hold water back. The system forms a cavity between the wet structure and waterproof interior. Any water ingress is allowed to enter the cavity and be collected in a drainage system and suitably diverted out of the property.
