The Philippine climate is characterized by relatively high temperature, high humidity and abundant rainfall. Rainfall distribution throughout the country varies, but the mean annual rainfall of the Philippines ranges from 965 to 4,064 millimeters. The rainy season is usually from June through November. Due to water penetration as a result of storms, monsoon rains, sudden downpours, or even the simple ingress of moisture, there is a big demand for waterproofing products in the Philippines. There are various types of waterproofing products used in Philippines projects – elastomeric, polyurethane, cementitious “crystallization-type”, liquid applied/sheet applied/PVC/torch applied/cold applied membrane, surface applied, and in-between slab systems, capillary, bitumen emulsion, self-adhesive, etc. -- depending on the surface that will be waterproofed and the budget of the end-user.

The Philippine market for waterproofing products is expected to grow 10-20% yearly through 2010. This growth is fueled by the on-going construction boom. The market, however, is very competitive. Locally produced waterproofing products, as well as, products from the U.S. and Asia, Europe and the Middle East are readily available in the Philippines. Best prospects include polyurethane waterproofing and specialty waterproofing products, e.g., jet fuel resistant sealant for airport runways, and products that have other functions aside from waterproofing, e.g., thermal and sound insulation, dust proofing, or anti-corrosion properties. You can check in the Article Alley page online if you want to know something more about the waterproofing and search for more information from them.
