Mapelastic Foundation is completely waterproof against positive pressure, and is waterproof against negative pressure of up to 1.5 atm (15 m column of water). Once cured, it is resistant to soluble salts which are present in sea water or in the ground, such as chlorides and sulphates. Mapelastic Foundation also has excellent bonding strength on all cementitious substrates if they have been suitably prepared. All these properties keep structures protected and waterproofed with Mapelastic Foundation perfectly dry over the years.

General principles for the use of products and systems") and the requirements for EN 1504-2 Standards according to PI-MC-IR principles ("Protection systems for concrete surfaces").
