Types of Waterproofing Materials and Their Standards

This paper focuses on the development and improvement of standard specifications for waterproofing materials. As a first step, we identified some common types of waterproofing materials with specifications set by ASTM International or the Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB): cold liquid-applied, hot liquid-applied, and single ply. In addition, we consider a widely used waterproofing material, bentonite, which lacks ASTM or CGSB waterproofing standards.
