Different Materials Used in Waterproofing and Leak Repair of Bathroom
Polyurethane has excellent elasticity and is not easily affected by cracking from other contact materials. It can tightly wrap around the ground, has strong breathability, and does not shrink or crack after drying. It is suitable for toilet plugs. But the smell of the paint is quite strong, and the environmental protection is relatively poor. Generally, a 1.5mm thick coating can achieve waterproofing effects multiple times. The market price is 3-4 US dollars per square meter.
2. Acrylic Acid
Acrylic acid is a water-based lotion, which does not contain other organic solvents. It can be used directly whether the ground is wet or dry. The most prominent feature of this material is that it is colorless, odorless, non-toxic, and harmless, making it a green and environmentally friendly material. However, it should be noted that the temperature during construction should be above 5 ℃, and it is not recommended to apply during rainy days. The market price is 5 yuan per square meter.
3. Flexible Mortar
Flexible mortar is a two-component or multi-component material modified by polymer, which is composed of lotion and powder in different proportions. Its strong tensile, waterproof, and anti-corrosion properties make it more advantageous than other materials. But it cannot be applied to oily substrates, otherwise, it will not stick and cause detachment. If the waterproofing is not done well, it is easy to get wrapped up and leak water. The market price is around 3.5-4 yuan per square meter.
The above introduces the differences in performance and price among different materials. In addition, factors that affect the cost of toilet waterproofing and leak repair include labor costs and decoration costs. Don't underestimate every decoration detail. Cost remains a significant expense, but material costs remain the largest. The specific cost needs to be negotiated and determined with the other party, as market conditions vary in different regions.
