Standard Guide for Preparation of Concrete Surfaces for Adhered (Bonded) Membrane Waterproofing Systems
|Publication Date:||1 March 2018|
|ICS Code (Concrete structures):||91.080.40|
This guide provides recommendations for the preparation of concrete surfaces prior to the application of adhered (bonded) waterproofing.
This guide is directed primarily toward installations of new concrete, but is also applicable for existing concrete installations. (See also ACI 116 and ACI 546.)
This guide does not apply to loose laid systems, bentonite systems, lead, or the like.
This guide does not apply to applications involving insulating concrete.
This guide does not apply to applications involving lightweight structural concrete.
NOTE 1-Once installed, it is difficult to visually identify the difference between normal weight and lightweight concrete. It is recommended that a review of contract documents, concrete batch or delivery tickets or similar effort be performed to identify the concrete type.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
