One of the important moments in any building is waterproofing.If you do not provide adequate protection of materials and structures from moisture, the life of the construction will be short-lived.And soon the strength of the structure can be reduced to a critical level.So, if you do not make a waterproof concrete structure already in 5-6 years, this is the structure will begin to crumble.Corrosion will penetrate into the concrete, first for a short distance.But after two decades, it will reach a depth of 1.5 meters.

Now there are so many of waterproofing materials that allow to securely protect structures from moisture.However, in the first place is still flashing, the technical characteristics of which allows you to increase the service life of materials many times.

material specification

flashing - a waterproof

ing and roofing material.He is one of the most economical options for waterproofing.As a rule, the biological stability of the material comes in rolls and has a cover.The width of the roll waterproofing averages 0.95 m, and the length is 10-20 meters. All the necessary requirements for this material it contains GOST 7415-86.If flashing

quality, the section it should be black.The surface is smooth as possible.At the heart of waterproofing is often fiberglass or fiberglass.On the basis of the top and bottom is applied to a special high quality asphalt binder.Further, the lower portion overlaps a particular polymer film.The same film can be applied on top.Also, it is often used instead of a large mineral dressing.It is important to note that all materials used in the basis of waterproofing did not rot.A lifetime of this building material is 10-12 years.

There are 6 types of waterproofing depending on what components it is made and for what purposes.Each type of waterproofing is marked with the letters where:

  • X - is the base waterproofing fiberglass;
  • E-Indicates the base of fiberglass;
  • P - means that the coating is applied as a polymer film;
  • K - means the coating is a Coarse-grained mineral type.

In accordance with this there are the following brands:

  • TCH - is intended to form the top layer of the roof;
  • CCI - designed to create a bottom layer of the roof and is a versatile insulation;
  • HSS - can be used as the top layer of roof insulation;
  • HSP - is a universal type of waterproofing material;
  • EPC - is used as the top layer of the roof;
  • EPG - used as a versatile waterproofing material.

Depending on the scope of use are the following two brands waterproofing:

  • GI-K - the type of roof flashing for forming the flat roof membrane roofing systems.
  • GI-T - is intended for use and waterproofing of underground parts of buildings and structures, as well as material protection against corrosion processes various pipelines.

Depending on the brand of waterproofing differ and specifications are reflected in the table:

Options GI-K GI-T
Dehumidification 24hours,% 8 6
breaking tensile load in the longitudinal direction, kg.s 30 35
temperature brittleness of bitumen impregnation, 0C - 15
softening temperatureimpregnating bitumen 0C. 47 - 55
Waterproof at a pressure of 0.05 MPa, min. 10 15


flashing distinguished by its high quality performance and affordable price is due to a special composition and manufacturing technology.And by using various additional elements can alter the performance of the material.

So, if you apply waterproofing with mineral grit, increase the stability of the roof to mechanical damage, UV and other natural circumstances are not favorable.Furthermore, flashing, the characteristics of which is very good, can enhance pozharoprochnost roof and increase moisture evaporation.

this building material can withstand large temperature range - from the lowest to the highest.And the installation of the roof is allowed to engage in negative temperature.It is also important that a strong wind and rain from the roof flashing is not "noise."


flashing, the use of which is carried out very well, it can be used in various fields of construction.Besides the most popular application - the creation of a roof - gidrostekloizol used in waterproofing the basement, basements, pipes and other problem areas.

This building material becomes a perfect solution to protect against the destruction of facilities such as wells, tunnels, bridges and pools.Often flashing comes to the rescue in the case of underground facilities where necessary to protect metal structures from corrosion.And even in such great demand gidrostekloizol price remains within the limits of availability - approximately 340-450 rubles per roll.

Summarizing, it can be used for waterproofing include:

  • roofs;
  • foundation;
  • basement walls;
  • overlap;
  • swimming pool;
  • main pipelines;
  • variety of designs;


Like many other construction materials, waterproofing requires special storage conditions.Thus, rolls of waterproofing must be stored on specialized pallets vertically.At the same time they should be sorted by brand.It is desirable to keep the material in an enclosed space.If it's so important to keep the flashing permitted in open areas, but not for long.

important to remember that the distance from gidrostekloizola to the heaters must be at least a meter.Moreover, if necessary, long-term storage is not allowed to roll in two rows, when the position of the vertical.And not long-term storage in a vertical position.The height should not exceed five rows.
