Waterproofing Solutions – Top Uses For Widopan Liquid Resins


Widopan have spent many years developing cold-applied liquid waterproofing solutions for various applications.

We have the right tool for the job, from solvent-free WIDOPUR-LF 2K to all-rounder WIDOPAN-FD.

Here are some of the top uses for liquid waterproofing systems and how you can use them to offer long-lasting protection. 

Roofs & Podiums

The problem with traditional waterproofing solutions is that issues occur when the roof is subjected to fractional movement caused by environmental or structural changes. 

This can result in splits and cracks, allowing water to ingress. WIDOPAN cold-applied liquid waterproofing technology forms a seamless, fully bonded membrane that is flexible and strengthened.

Our waterproofing systems are suitable for new builds, roof overlays, refurbishment, and restorations. 

They may be applied to nearly any substrate, avoiding the cost and disturbance associated with removing old membranes and coatings.

Uses for liquid waterproofing solutions:

  • Warm Roofs
  • Inverted Roofs
  • Cold Roofs
  • Podium Decks
  • Plaza Decks
  • Existing Overlays
  • Metal Roofs
  • Roof Repairs
  • Green Roofs

Balconies, Terraces & Walkways

In both new and existing multi-story dwellings and constructions, communal walkways, staircases, and stairwells are commonplace. 

These areas face significant demands due to weather conditions, high-traffic with exposure to the elements, making them vulnerable to water penetration at door and window joints and structural connection points.

With over 50 years of industry experience, WIDOPAN balcony systems offer a long-term, low-profile waterproofing solution. 

Our comprehensive system with fully reinforced waterproofing, self-levelling layer, and ornamental topcoat measures at just 4-6mm in total thickness.

Detailing & Movement Joints

Representing the most significant weak point in any structure, detailing and movement joints can be a complicated area to waterproof. 

Connections to upstands, fixtures and rising structural components require protection from the elements, but the challenge is often too much for traditional waterproofing materials, with water eventually entering and needing attention. 

WIDOPAN liquid waterproofing solutions provide the ideal opportunity for tackling these awkwardly angled areas, securing your structure for years to come.

Uses for liquid waterproofing: 

  • Upstands, Pipe Penetrations
  • Gutters, Junctions
  • Parapets, Rainwater Outlets
  • Skylights & Roof Lanterns
  • Lightning Conductors, Mansafe Systems
  • Railings and Handrail & Expansion Joints

Other Waterproofing Solution Applications

There is seemingly no limit to how WIDOPAN can be used to protect structures from water ingress. 

From car parks to swimming pools and fountains – even a ski jump – we’ve seen our products used in an astounding number of ways.
