Challenge

Flock Image had the task to waterproof the balconies and roof of this new build. Tiles needed to be placed directly onto the membrane since there was not enough height available to put torba and concrete again before installing tiles.

Solution

Chimex 233 was used for this project. Chimex can be used as a base to tile on directly, thus doing away with the height issue and the product itself can be used as the tile glue. Furthermore, since project had tight schedules and was being carried out during cooler months, a cementious product such as Chimex was ideal for the purpose, since it can be applied even onto damp substrates.

Chimex 233 is a cement-acrylic based, two component, flexible and UV resistant waterproofing material. It has excellent adhesion properties and forms a perfect isolation layer for under ceramic tiles and screeds due to its flexibility and high bonding properties. It is ideal for terraces, roofs, swimming pools and water retaining structures. It can be used safely to waterproof drinking water tanks.
