Permatite - Integral Waterproof Concrete
Permatite is a watertight concrete system suitable for basements, swimming pools, lift pits, green rooftops and
many other structures that require effective
CEMEX Permatite, available exclusively from CEMEX UK, is a concrete designed to meet the requirements of waterproofing as defined in BS8102 (all grades). The use of specifically designed admixtures provides Readymix Permatite with structurally integral waterproofing, enabling concrete to be poured and compacted with ease
|✓ Keeps water out, or in as required|
✓ Reduced risk of reinforcement corrosion
✓ Enhanced long term performance
✓ Increased Durability
In practice this is achieved by changing the composition of standard
concrete to maximise water resistance and/or by inserting a vapour
barrier, such as an impermeable membrane, during construction.
CEMEX and Fosroc, two of the leading exponents of moisture
barrier construction technology, have combined their expertise
and experience to provide the best solution in every application.
This includes Type A (use of a waterproofing membrane) Type B
(structural use of concrete) and Type C (drained cavity)

Permatite For Green Rooftops
It is predicted that the global population will to rise to 9 billion by 2050 and that 75% of us will live in cities. This changing demographic and trend towards urbanisation could impact on the environment in the form of higher inner city temperatures and a loss of flora and fauna.
Green rooftops are an excellent way of designing sustainable areas that provide additional social and recreational space as well as environmental benefits. They can assist with thermal properties and storm water attenuation.
Waterproofing is an essential requirement for green rooftops and Permatite is a fast and cost-effective solution where waterproofing is achieved at the time of concrete placement and provides long-term durability.
