Car Park Deck Waterproofing

Car Park Deck Waterproofing is an essential part of any multi-story car park refurbishment or new build. With concrete being prone to degradation and corrosion, it’s important to protect the structure from contamination by harsh chemicals from vehicles like fuels, de-icers, brake fluids, oils and exhaust fumes. Combined with the impact of vehicular traffic and the freezing temperatures of underground car parks, waterproofing systems are often required to be robust enough to resist extreme weather conditions.

Mastic asphalt and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) based liquid surfacing and waterproofing solutions can be used in the concrete decks of parking structures to provide both an aesthetically pleasing surface and lasting protection. For example, the IKO Permapark system is a premium product that combines mastic asphalt with advanced polymer technology to provide an excellent combination of long term durability, high fatigue resistance, temperature stability and skid resistance for vehicle traffic. It’s suitable for a range of applications from pedestrian walkways and car parks to HGV service decks and ramps.
