Construction Tech Review | Saturday, January 07, 2023

Irregularities in temperature gradients caused by carbon emission and greenhouse gases directly affect the strength of the building as they can induce abnormal expansion and compression cycles along seasonal change.

Fremont, CA: Construction of buildings and intricate structures has taken huge diversions from conventional modes through the use of modern technology and construction solutions. The higher density of the population has created the need to develop complex structures prone to pollution, greenhouse gases, confined spaces and lack of solid foundations. Construction solution products are applied periodically to mitigate the effects of such factors, which may be either human or natural made.

The application of construction solution products can bring about the benefits such as:

Prevention from environmental damage

Buildings exposed to humid conditions can ensure their structural integrity by the application of waterproof coatings. The application of waterproofing solutions prevents the buildings from corrosion due to rain, the acidity of the atmosphere and internal humidity in the structure.

Deep cracks and seepages

Cracks and seepages are developed over time in buildings due to the irregularity in water logging, masonry practices, earthquakes and climatic conditions. Water seeping through these pathways can destroy the structure fundamentally, and the most efficient mode of prevention is by having proper waterproof coatings.

Corrosion resistance

Various factors, such as climatic change, the presence of pollutants and other physical changes, contribute to the corrosion of the structure. The process of corrosion is time-dependent and usually takes long durations; however, it is often accelerated by several human and natural factors, such as abrupt climatic changes, chemical pollutants, and the increase of greenhouse gases. Buildings should be applied with waterproofing basecoats to ensure the durability of the paint and coatings.

Maintain indoor temperature

Irregularities in temperature gradients caused by carbon emission and greenhouse gases directly affect the strength of the building as they can induce abnormal expansion and compression cycles along the seasonal change. Such issues can be addressed by the use of waterproof coatings and by the application of wall crack sealants.

Protection from molds and fungi

 

The humidity of the atmosphere, wet surfaces and leakage of water through the block aids the growth of fungus and molds. Prevention of such unwanted growth can be ensured by taking up reactive measures during the initial phases of construction. The use of such anti-fungal and mold solutions ensures the durability and adhesive strength of the structures.

 

Different methods of waterproofing

According to the various factors affecting the strength of the building, such as water leakage, chemical exposure, and temperature variations, the selection of different waterproofing methods also varies. Several methods, such as bituminous coating, polyurethane membrane coating and liquid waterproofing membrane, are adopted according to the situational requirements of the building.
