Before construction, ensure that the site is clean and dry. The waterproof coating should be fully coated without any leakage.

Painting height should be consistent, the thickness of the product should meet the requirements of the regulations.
PS: The joints of floor drain, wall corners, pipe heels, etc., should use high elasticity flexible waterproofing brush. Because the joints between the walls of the bathroom and the ground will be shifted most likely to seep water.
2. Brush the second coat of waterproofing paint. Note, the second waterproofing coating needs to have a certain time interval between. Wait for the first coat of paint to dry before the second coat. The exact time depends on the paint. If the interval is too short, the effect of waterproofing will be greatly reduced.
3. Layer a protective layer. In order to prevent subsequent construction damage waterproofing layer, need to lay a protective layer on the surface of the waterproofing coating. The protective layer should completely cover the waterproofing layer, no omissions. Its combination with the grass-roots level should be solid, with no cracks, no bubbles, no shedding.
4. Closed water test. Closed water test, ground point of the water line can not be less than 2 cm, save at least 24 hours. Observe that there is no leakage phenomenon only after qualified. If there is leakage, need to redo. Do not be negligent.
