LUMPUR, MALAYSIA – Media OutReach – 2 November 2020 – Dritech Chemicals Sdn Bhd, Malaysia’s manufacturer of high performance construction
chemicals and materials, would like to announce a new and improved
waterproofing product Dri-Lastic WP-20
that is designed to prevent water damage* in wet areas such as toilets and
WP-20 is a high performance rubberised acrylic
modified waterproofing compound that is not only suitable for Malaysia’s hot
and humid climate, but it is also easy to apply.
WP-20 is a mono-component, water-based, non-toxic and
eco-friendly compound that is ready-to-use. No mixing of the product is
required, simplifying the application process on-site. Not only will it avoid
potential mixing errors that are commonly faced with conventional two-component
cement-based waterproofing products, it will also save time.
Its bright turquoise colour allows for easy
visual inspection and ensures that all areas are treated with sufficient
waterproofing material. After successfully waterproofing the surface area with Dri-Lastic WP-20, the area can be
screeded or tiled over.
Elyse Kymberly Teoh, Dritech
Chemicals Business Development Manager said: “After
speaking to various developers and homeowners in Malaysia, we understand that
leaks and subsequent water damage are one of their top concerns. Water leakages
can lead to paint peeling off and the development of mold, mildew and air
“There are several product pain-points with conventional
cement-based waterproofing materials, with an increased risk of application and
mixing errors when carried out by unskilled or inexperienced workers. With the
ready-to-use Dri-Lastic WP-20, no mixing is required, greatly reducing
the risk of such application errors.
“Quality, durability and convenience is
assured with Dri-Lastic WP-20. We
created an easy-to-use waterproofing product that will not only help improve
QA/QC, but it will also help reduce the number of defects reported due to
leaks, leading to an improved bottom line for our clients,” said Teoh.
*Dri-Lastic WP-20 should be applied
in accordance to the specifications and instructions of the manufacturer
(Dritech Chemicals Sdn Bhd) for effective waterproofing results.
