Once the MPS system has been installed the area can be plastered/rendered and painted as normal
Whether it is an existing structure with water ingress or a new building, Hydrotech's evolutionary MPS System provides water ingress protection - GUARANTEED to meet agreed performance objectives.
The MPS System incorporates a monitoring system to ensure that the performance objectives are achieved.
A 10 year guarantee certificate is issued on full completion of the installation.
Electro-osmosis or Electro-osmotic flow is the motion of ions in a solvent environment through very narrow channels, or capillaries, where an applied potential across the channels cause the ion migration.
The Multi-Pulse Sequencing (MPS) System is a highly advanced form of electro-osmosis
technology that uses low voltage and low current to ionise water within the capillaries of
the concrete or masonry lining and actively repels water out of the structure.
Capillary action is the tendency of a liquid to rise in a narrow tube. It is a result of the cohesion1 force between water molecules and the adhesion2 force between those molecules and the solid material forming the walls of the tube. The more narrow the tube, the greater the rise of the liquid.
1. Cohesion, the mutual attractive force that exist between the like molecules of a particular liquid.
2. Adhesion, is the attractive force between two unlike materials, such as liquid and a solid container.
Water penetrates the concrete fabric by three primary mechanisms: Capillary action, temperature differentials and hydraulic pressure. Capillary action is much more powerful than the force of gravity, as demonstrated by “rising damp” in buildings.
Water ingress has long since been a major problem for Architects, Property Managers, Contractors and Engineers. Conventional waterproofing techniques only address specific problems for a limited period of time and as such, costs can spiral.
Hydrotech's innovative MPS System succeeds where all others fail and is safe, reliable and cost effective. Furthermore whether it is an existing structure or a new building, Hydrotech's proprietary technology ,The MPS System provides water ingress protection.
