Green roof or roof garden is a essential element of green architecture, a growing trend that encourages sustainability in building constructions. However, many have been reluctant to the idea of roof garden, since its determining factor is also its biggest struggle: WATERPROOFING.

There are numerous waterproofing solutions available in the market, all with different applications: concrete mixture, crystallization, liquid absorption, surface covering using bitumen liquid, self-adhesive or torch applying membranes, etc. In some cases the waterproofing system required 3, 4, or even 5 separate layers, which was extremely complicated and expensive.

Surprisingly, the complete waterproofing system is not yet available: according to the American Society of Home Inspectors, there are about 60% U.S. homes and basements have wet or moisture problem, and the most effective solution is installing drainage - sump pump and dehumidifier system, then keep it running along the life of the basement, up to 50 years.

The differences of INTOC-04:

Truly cement-based: The product is liquid; it is mixed with cement on-site and applied fresh (not cement-polymer mix, liquid bitumen or epoxy). 
The waterproofing bonds and becomes a part of the concrete-mortar structure. This solution is going to last through the life of the project.

Excellent water-resistant: withstanding water pressure of 10 Bar (10 daN/cm2, 100 meters height water column), even on positive or negative side. Read the test: https://goo.gl/fMuqIU

Simple application: just spraying or apply manually as regular slurry/mortar. Works on smooth, rough, or even damp surfaces.
One process for all waterproofing needs, positive or negative side: basement, water tank, high-rise swimming pool, elevator pit, green roof, roof garden, bathroom, etc.

INTOC is trusted by many experts and customers:
