The system Desmopol does not create joints as it is applied direct to the support, to the perimeter parapets, or to the singular points such as drains, corners or finished surfaces. Being a completely adherent membrane, it does not create interior air pockets. In these areas of parapets or points of water collection in drains, it is advisable to use a geotextile mesh casing.
It appears in a colors variety such as gray, brick-red, white or transparent. Although if it is preferred it is possible to apply aliphatic varnish specific with a wide scale of colors RAL on the surface.
Desmopol has a process of stability and drying of 8 hours approximately after application. Although this time can change perceptibly according to the grade of exterior environmental temperature (pg. 9 of the Desmopol catalog).
Desmopol failure is scarce, although in case of escape of moisture due to a mistake in the application of the waterproofing, or a break after application, since it is a completely adherent membrane to the support, the origin of the water, coincides with the area of the break, the location of this point is direct and therefore, it diminishes or limits to the minimum the repair work necessary.
