Advanced Insulation Techniques is one of the leading companies that specialized in executing water proofing and thermal insulation systems for construction elements such as roofs, walls, floors and footings.


Materials differs from one system to another and can be categorized into three categories:

  • Water Proofing Materials
  • Protection Layers
  • Thermal Insulation Materials
Water Proofing Materials

There is a wide range and different types of water proofing materials where all of them depend on sealing the substrate, concrete or steel or wood, in a way that closes hair cracks or overlaps and prevent water from finding it’s way through the substrate and into the structure in he form of leakage or moisture content that will affect the substrate components and accelerate decomposition via corrosion (in steel sheets or bars) or by freezing and thawing process. concrete substrate even of high quality, contains capillaries and micro cracks.



Protection Layers & Application Accessories

Layers of water proofing and thermal insulation should be correctly protected against physical damage and chemical reaction with materials of surrounding layers . unless these precautions was taken under consideration , materials in the any given system would not function as designed and would fail . again it is not only the material type that matters alone but also the application perfection that defines wether or not the system will meet the design specifications. Proper selection and installing of accessories is also a success factor.



Thermal Insulation Materials

Heat travel from hot areas towards colder areas. Insulation concept came out from the fact that each material has its own thermal conductivity k value and resist the heat transfer through its structure width. Concrete and steel have poor insulation properties than Other materials (higher k-value and lower R-value) thus the need of use materials that resist heat transfer is essential to bring down the consumption of fuel (energy) used to over come the inconvenient ambient temperature.

Materials of insulation are either reflective coatings or insulation materials that depend on their thickness such as polystyrene rigid foam (extruded “EXP” or expanded) or polyurethane ”PUR” foam or polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam.
