Problem
umidita-risalita1Rising damp is essentially due to a physical phenomenon of vehiculation, ie the water’s ability to penetrate the walls and to rise from the ground upwards through the capillaries present in the materials constituting them; the water goes back to the capillaries, until the forces involved find equilibrium.

The phenomenon of ascent by capillarity manifests itself every time a liquid comes into contact with a small vessel called a capillary.

The water is then disposed of through the normal process of evaporation through the surface of the masonry, triggering a process of degradation of the elements that constitute it, causing the following damage:
– Widespread presence of stains and salt efflorescence
– Detachments of the plaster from the masonry

Solution
umidita-risalita2CIR provides a professional system for creating a chemical barrier, NANOTECHNOLOGICAL and hydrophobic.

The realization of the chemical barrier makes it possible to interrupt the ascent of water into themasonry, hydrophobizing the capillaries of the materials making the adhesion forces that cause the ascent null, so as to prevent the rising of the water and with it also the disruptive action of the salts conveyed by the water coming from the ground. Once the chemical cut of the masonry has been carried out, if the surfaces are coated with plaster and not seen, CIR provides a system of plasters based on hydrated lime and natural pozzolans, which guarantee a minimum diffusion by steam and the total compatibility with the chemical barrier made previously.

INTERVENTION CYCLE

  • On facing masonry, proceed with the restoration of the stuccos and joints
  • Perform the chemical cutting on the face wall with BARRIER ACQUA PLUS SYSTEM
  • Restore the holes drilled for the injection of the BARRIER ACQUA PLUS
  • Then proceed with the restoration of the plasters with highly breathable materials
CIR SOLUTION ADVANTAGES
The solution proposed by CIR makes it possible to perform effective and resolving dehumidification of the rising dampness problem, on many cases that can be found on site and on many materials constituting the masonry wall.

The proposed restoration materials guarantee full compatibility with the chemical cutting operation with Barrier Acqua Plus System, full compliance with the wall and compatibility with the materials of the past.

THE TECHNICIAN RECOMMENDS
The dehumidification of a building must always include specific measures to solve the problem of humidity at the base, intervening directly on the causes that produce problems, due in most cases to wrong construction techniques. Covering the surfaces only with plasters or repainting the surfaces is equivalent in many cases to hiding the problem and not to solve it.
