The Newton HydroBond System provides a complete and continuous waterproof envelope to the external surface of any below ground structure.
External Waterproofing (Type A)
Newton Specialist Basement Contractors (NSBC) are an elite group of professional basement waterproofing contractors who work in partnership with Newton Waterproofing Systems.
The Newton Waterproofing Index is a unique specification tool providing specifiers and designers with a scoring system through which it is possible to accurately assess the level of risk and potential success involved in a waterproofing design.
‘Type A’ Waterproofing – British Standard 8102:2009
British Standard 8102:2009 defines ‘Type A’ waterproofing as “barrier protection” which is applied to either the internal or external surface of a structure in order to resist the pressure of water trying to enter the building.
‘Type A’ membranes are the products that are referred to when people talk about the process of “tanking” a basement in order to protect it from water ingress. Waterproofing barrier membranes that can be applied to the external ‘positive’ side of the structure include both pre-applied, self-healing sheet membranes, and post-applied liquid membranes that can be linked to the above ground DPC in order to completely encapsulate, or "tank", the basement in a continuous waterproof layer.
For more robust waterproofing protection, BS 8102:2009 recommends combining two or more Types of waterproofing. The Newton HydroBond System can therefore be combined with our ‘Type B’ solution Newton HydroTank, and/or our ‘Type C’ solution Newton CDM.
The Newton HydroBond Solution
The flexible, easy-to-apply liquid membranes Newton 108 HydroBond-LM and Newton 109-LM combine with the hydrophilic membrane 403 HydroBond to provide a Type A external waterproofing solution that is not only BDA certified, but is also self-healing, gas proof, and can terminate directly to the above-ground damp proof course.
