DURAHIT® WP 500 (DM)
Water resisting admixture acc. to DIN EN 934-2 for watertight concrete
Item No. 2290
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
WP 500 (DM) is an efficient waterproofing agent especially designed for achieving depth hydrophobation for optimum water repellence in demanding concrete projects.
The water resisting admixture is suitable for concrete with advanced requirements in durability and quality and where optimum protection against water absorption is required.
WP 500 (DM) is therefore particularly suitable for concrete applied in:
- Basements floors and walls
- Tunnel constructions
- Sewage treatment plants
- Water retaining constructions
- Drainage constructions
- Reinforced concrete constructions in marine environment
The waterproofing agent achieves a very effective protection mechanism which provides the following benefits:
- Optimum water repellence
- Decreased steel corrosion
- Enhanced resistance against visual deficiently signs like effloresces
WP 500 (DM) advances concrete’s durability and long-term performance and can make a contribution to ecological sustainability
WP 500 (DM) reacts with the cement matrix during the hydration process and generates a hydrophobic concrete texture thereby.
This hydrophobic effect reduces the capillary suction and decreases concrete’s water absorption abilities.
