On the base of our garden boxes we used waterproofing materials from Mapei so that the boxes would not deteriorate when exposed to the elements or buried under a bit of soil.
For this ‘tanking’ process we used two different products from Mapei, an international company specialising in adhesives and sealants.
Mapelastic Smart is a two-component flexible cementitious mortar for waterproofing concrete, balconies, terraces, bathrooms and swimming pools.
Mapeflex PU45 is a single component, thixotropic, rapid-hardening polyurethane sealant and adhesive with a high modulus of elasticity.
We are using these products for all our interior waterproofing, including the tanking, tiling and all surfaces that need waterproof sealing. Both these products are produced as environmentally as possible, as Mapei is an innovator of environmentally responsible solutions and a manufacturer of the industries largest selection of eco-friendly products.
