Permanently waterproof your basement this weekend. The Sanitred basement sealing system stops all ground water entry, basement humidity, mildew odors and dampness problems by sealing the basement where it needs it most – on the inside. Our sealing system works on poured concrete, concrete block, brick and mortar, stone and mortar and is guaranteed for the life of the structure when installed correctly.

Proven by years of experience and thousands of customers, Sanitred products are solvent free, non-hazardous and non-flammable. The Sanitred system uses three products: PermaFlex®, LRB (Liquid Rubber Base) and TAV (Thickening Activator).

Permaflex

Permaflex is the top coat that seals basement walls and floors. It’s also functions as a first priming coat when using LRB (Liquid Rubber Base) and TAV (Thickening Activator). The priming coats fills pores, pock holes & pinholes in the substrate.

LRB
(Liquid Rubber Base) and TAV (Thickening Activator)

These two products work together to patch and profile any joints, seams, cracks, holes or rough areas. Products are packaged separately because different mixes are required for different applications. For example, A 1-inch diameter caulk bead of LRB/TAV (1 part TAV, 2 parts LRB) mixture is applied where the wall meets the floor.

Excess water in your basement not only limits your use of the space, it can cause a number of serious problems, from mold to weakening your home’s foundation. However, many homeowners put off repairing the problem because traditional solutions can be very expensive and ineffective.

Alternative methods treat only the exterior foundation wall coatings and can be very costly. They don’t promise to eliminate water in your basement, just to redirect it.

Sanitred takes a better approach using a different kind of waterproofing system. Sanitred is a simple three-step process that homeowners can apply themselves in a weekend. The products are solvent free, non-hazardous and non-flammable.

Step by Step Basement Waterproofing

The following steps will show you How to Waterproof a Basement with SANI-TRED®.

Products Needed: PermaFlex®, LRB (Liquid Rubber Base) and TAV (Thickening Activator)

  1. Prepare the surface area for waterproofing. Make sure the walls of the surface area are clean, dry and free of foreign matter or crumbling material.
  2. Prime the surface area. Apply one coat of PermaFlex (240 sq. ft. per gal.)
    — Concrete block requires two prime coats of PermaFlex due to its porous nature.
  3. Patch and profile any joints, seams, cracks, holes or any rough areas using a LRB/TAV mixture (two parts LRB/one part TAV).
    — Apply a 1’’ diameter caulk bead mixture where the wall meets the floor.
    — Most cracks can be filled with a ¾” diameter caulk bead mixture.
  4. Apply a topcoat of PermaFlex (240 sq. ft. per gal.).

Poured concrete basements need a total of 2 coats PermaFlex®; walls and floors. Concrete block walls need a total of 3 coats PermaFlex® because blocked walls are extremely porous. Once the SANI-TRED® basement waterproofing products have been applied, water, moisture or vapor can never enter the basement. PermaFlex® can be brushed, rolled or even sprayed! SANI-TRED® basement waterproofing products also eliminate problem radon.
