Acquablock: Waterproof the Terrace without Removing the Floor

20 July 2023

Micro water infiltrations (caused by small cracks or cracks less than 1.5 mm thick) are a common problem that can compromise the structural integrity of the terrace. However, with ACQUABLOCK, you have an effective ally to waterproof your terrace without having to face the removal of the existing floor. In this article, we will provide you with a practical guide on how to stop water infiltrations using ACQUABLOCK.

Acquablock, the anti-infiltration protection for stone materials

Water infiltration can be caused by several reasons, including micro-cracks on floors due to structural movements of the building or surface coverings (for example, floor tiles) or the aging of joints that become more fragile. In addition, the underlying sheath may deteriorate due to incorrect application or degradation of time.

ACQUABLOCK is specially formulated to prevent such problems, avoiding the need to dismantle surfaces subject to infiltration, such as terraces, balconies, thresholds etc. This way, you protect your space from water infiltrations, efflorescence and mold leakage.

Let’s see together what are the strengths of ACQUABLOCK:

  1. It preserves floors and coverings without having to dismantle, effectively protecting them from water infiltration.
  2. It can be applied to all stone materials (for example, natural stones, cotto, terrazzo, ceramics, etc.) while maintaining the original appearance and allowing perspiration without creating surface films.
  3. It consolidates de-cohesive materials and can also be used on cracks up to 1.5 mm wide, providing protection against infiltration.
  4. It has a duration of about 10 years and can be reapplied periodically to maintain maximum protection.

How to block water infiltrations using Acquablock

First, you prepare the surface by cleaning thoroughly to remove dirt, dust, grease, waxes and cement residues. In case of cracks greater than 1.5 mm, we recommend to fill them with special materials. Make sure that the surface is completely dry before applying ACQUABLOCK with a brush, soft cloth or wax spreader covering the entire surface, tiles and joints. In the case of tiles made of non-absorbent material (for example, porcelain tiles, klinker), care must be taken to eliminate the excess product left on the surface before its drying. Finally, it is necessary to avoid that the newly treated surfaces are wet from the rain before 24 hours after application.

Blocking water infiltrations and protecting your terrace has never been easier thanks to ACQUABLOCK. This state-of-the-art waterproofing product allows you to preserve the floor without the need for costly and invasive removal operations.
