THE PROBLEM

The rising damp is mainly due to the ability of the water to penetrate the masonry and to rise from the ground upwards through the capillaries present in the constituent materials. The water goes up the capillaries, until the forces at play find balance, and is then disposed of through the normal process of evaporation through the surface of the masonry. This triggers a process of degradation of the elements that make up it, causing widespread presence of spots and saline efflorescences and detachments of plasters from the masonry.

THE SOLUTION

CIR provides a professional system for the creation of a nanotechnological chemical barrier that can make the capillaries of masonry materials water-repellent. This prevents the water from rising, and with it the disruptive action of the salts it conveys.

The intervention requires to make on the wall a series of small holes,through which the product is injected inside by gravity, through practical bottles, pre-dosed according to the thickness of the masonry.

In cases where the surfaces are coated with plaster, CIR provides for the restoration a range of plasters based on hydrated lime and pozzolana,totally compatible with the intervention with a chemical barrier.

INTERVENTION CYCLE

1

On fair-faced walls proceed to the restoration of the grouting and joints

2

Proceed with the application of a chemical barrier with BARRIER ACQUA PLUS – GRAVITY BASED SYSTEM

3

Restore the holes made for the injection of BARRIER ACQUA PLUS

4

Proceed with the restoration of plasters with high breathable mortars

OUR TECHNICIAN RECOMMENDS

The dehumidification of a building must always involve specific interventions to solve the problem of humidity,due in most cases to the wrong construction techniques. To just cover the surfaces with plaster or to repaint them is in many cases to hide the problem without really solving it.
