Torch On Membrane Malaysia | Supplier & Contractor
Aathaworld Sdn Bhd offers a complete waterproofing solution to many sectors, with different kind of type of application especially Torch-On Membrane method. The torch-on membrane can apply to all range of buildings, such as commercial, low-rise, high-rise, residential building, infrastructure, and industrial plant. The area that widely uses the torch-on membrane is the structural roof. Torch-on membrane contractor Malaysia capable to service you from specification preparation or design stage, supply, installation to rectification work. Torch-on membrane is extremely important for countries such as Malaysia where our environment highly humid and our raining season made up most of the year. The specialty of a torch-on membrane between other waterproofing method is that it is very durable and will ensure water element will not penetrate the building and cause any harm to the structural integrity and safety of the building. Today, the torch-on membrane in Malaysia can be supplied in roll form and liquid form. Both also use the same material which is bitumen that is usually used for road construction and repair.
During the design stage, most architects and engineers will specify the torch-on membrane brands to specify for the roof of the building. It is essential to treat a different type of building differently in order to prevent so-called “over-specified” or “under-specified” problems. These two issues must be handled carefully since it is interrelated closely with safety and financial. Waterproofing supplier Malaysia usually will adjust more budget on the structural component of a building such as load-bearing concrete column and concrete beam, an admixture of the surface. Structural integrity might be affected if no proper installation of the torch-on membrane. When water penetrates into the inner part of concrete, steel in touch with water and corrosion process will occur. Corrosion will subsequently affect the structural strength of a building, from foundation to load bearing wall and also the roof structure.
Torch-on membrane supplier in Malaysia come across some serious incidents where the developer wants to save cost and compromise on the waterproofing specification. The usage of waterproofing is to close up the porosity of concrete infill and surface, blocking chemical and water elements to infiltrate concrete, then indirectly and directly deteriorating the building. Keeping the surface dry and avoid it being in touch with water cannot solve the problem, especially the building outer surface that prone to receive rainwater. According to the waterproofing supplier Malaysia, most of the waterproofing issue happens from the foundation. It is the building part that cannot be seen and monitored obviously in the majority of the time, what happens underneath the slab cannot be observed even examined from time to time. For instance, the soil will always absorb water whenever possible and will cause the foundation to be surrounded by wet soil. Torch-on membrane supplier in Malaysia claims that damping will cause swell and lose strength on the adhesive if the waterproofing job of the foundation did not carry out correctly.
Furthermore, water passage in the concrete should be prevented with much attention while the hydrostatic pressure needs to treated with some kind and proper resistance level. The treatment mentioned here is for both interior and exterior side of a concrete system, waterproofing effort should be done too at the underneath and top side. There are several layers and method to apply the waterproofing, including the membrane sheet on the surface side in which it receives or may in touch with incoming water and chemical. Waterproofing supplier Malaysia does also encourage to enhance the protection by putting in the liquid membrane into the concrete infill, known as admixture besides the external side of the concrete.
Another type of material is known as the liquid membrane, it can be applied to corner and edge such as meeting point of floor and wall as well as a planter box, roof, retaining wall or balcony. Waterproofing supplier in Malaysia suggests to use a torch on membrane on the abovementioned areas too using gas torch gun, it is highly suitable to be installed on a large surface that is flat, an especially huge project to achieve economies of scale. Another injection waterproofing is also common to be seen, applying it using an injector to form a waterproofing barrier membrane between walls, ground, foundation, cold joint for the sake of improving bearing capacity and get rid of leakage. There are also simple waterproofing materials such as wall putty, plastering where these products are durable and able to resist high level of chemical, mechanical, physical and damages brought by weather. Last but not least, torch-on membrane supplier Malaysia does provide excellent water-resistant material that capable to fill up the porous of the cement component and protect the component from further damage.
