A building/structure needs waterproofing as concrete itself will never be so perfectly placed as to be watertight on its own. The conventional system of waterproofing involves 'membranes'. This relies on the application of one or more layers of membrane (available in various types of materials: e.g. bitumen, silicate, PVC, HDPE, etc) that act as a barrier between the water and the building structure, preventing water ingress. However, the membrane system relies on perfect application, which has presented difficulties. As such, problems with application or when the membrane does not adhere properly to the substrate can lead to leakages.

Over the past two decades, the construction industry has seen the advent of technological advancements in waterproofing materials, moving from membrane sheet applications to integral waterproofing systems. Integral systems work within the matrix of a concrete structure, giving the concrete itself a waterproof quality.
