Solutions for the Watermanagement Industry
High performance, cost effective waterproofing with minimal downtime
In this challenging industry where there is little margin for error, the MasterSeal portfolio under the Master Builders Solutions brand from BASF comprises waterproofing products that safely protect and extend the lifecycle of potable water and wastewater structures.
BASF's proven waterproofing and sealant technologies are tailored to the environment, creating long lasting protective membranes with outstanding resistance to harsh conditions and chemical attack. Our broad portfolio of waterproofing products and technologies create durable solutions and are backed by a team of local experts who ensure the right system is installed, requiring the least amount of time, at the best lifecycle cost.
Because almost all construction assemblies require joints, BASF offers a comprehensive portfolio of sealants to correctly address joints, gaps and cracks in virtually any structure. These sealants create a tenacious bond allowing for movement between two or more surfaces while preventing water, moisture or contaminates from entering the structure. These bonds durably resist water and chemical attack, protecting the integrity of the structure, even in high movement and moisture environments.
Accelerated construction, durable concrete, global expertise
Water is the main source of life and essential for health and development. Under the Master Builders Solutions brand from BASF, we address these water-based challenges with appropriate solutions that facilitate high-speed construction, help protect scarce resources and provide resistance to extreme environments.
The next generation admixture technology created by BASF under the Master Builders Solutions brand includes specially blended permeability reducing admixtures that give lasting protection from moisture damage and enhance the concrete’s water-repellant properties, and advanced retarding plasticizers that significantly increase the density of the concrete, helping to improve placement and optimize finish.
Our experts offer a fully integrated approach to construction projects in this demanding environment at every stage of the process. Drawing on a long-established knowledge of providing product systems to the water industry, our expertise is based on many years experience gained across the world in a variety of climatic conditions.
MasterGlenium: high-range water-reducing admixtures.
