Building improvement system
Recommended: Per buildings with a maximum of 2/3 floors with walls made of homogeneous materials (of the same shape and type), bricks, tuff blocks, etc...
PHASE 1 - CUTTING
The first phase of the procedure consists of cutting the wall subject to the phenomenon of rising damp with special machines produced only by COMER. The cutting is done on the load-bearing walls (perimeter and internal) that sit directly on the foundations, as these are the ones where the humidity rises due to the capillary effect. The cutting operation is quite fast and when finished the wall is ready for the second phase of the work.

CLEANING-WASHING

In this phase the cut section is cleaned and washed to make it easier to insert the ISOLCOMER waterproofing sheet and then fill with cement mortar
PHASE 2 - INSERTING THE ISOLCOMER WATERPROOFING SHEET
This is the most important phase of the procedure, and consists of inserting the ISOLCOMER waterproofing sheet in the cut made in the wall. This sheet prevents humidity rising, creating a water-resistant barrier against rising damp.
PHASE 3 - WEDGING
At this point it is very important to insert plastic anchoring wedges in the cut under pressure (COMER patent). These wedges have holes with channels for inserting the mortar and therefore have the threefold function of compressing it, blocking the insulating sheet in place in the cut and providing momentary stability to the walls while the mortar dries. The wedges are inserted under pressure with the relevant wedge driver.
PHASE 4 - FILLING USING CEMENT MORTAR WITH ADDITIVES
The sheet of insulating material is loaded with premixed anti-shrinkage cement mortar to completely saturate the cut. The mortar must be inserted on both sides of the insulation (over and under). The mortar can be inserted in the cut using an injection system. This consists of the forced injection of the mortar in the cut using the COMER pneumatic pump. The excess mortar will be automatically expelled as the insulation is blocked in place.
PHASE 5 - FINAL SEALING AND REFURBISHING THE PLASTER
Repair the plaster of the walls above the cut using COMER 200 areoplastic additive mortars that let the walls breath thanks to the osmotic process.
