Wisma Wah Chan, located in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, was looking for rectification solutions for their external wall cracks. Wall cracks are not just unsightly, but they can also cause other severe problems if left untreated. This includes water leakage (from rainwater seeping through cracks to the building internally), peeling paints & de-bonding plasters.
Dritech recommended a full solution that does not only repair the existing cracks, but also a coating system that reduces the risk of cracks from reoccurring:
- Widening of all cracks & patching them with Stucco-Repair 1000, a water-based acrylic repair stucco.
- Application of Dri-Gard AP 7000, a water-borne acrylic wall primer/sealer
- Installation of Super Fibre R45 tissue fibre mat to strengthen the coating system & improve its crack-bridging abilities and durability
- Application of Dri-Gard AC 800, crack-bridging, low VOC water-based elastomeric acrylate coating, that does not only function as a coating for aesthetical purposes, but also achieves stringent requirements needed for concrete & anti-carbonation protection.
