KeraPro is a new favourite of professionals

Kiilto KeraPro is the quickest waterproofing solution in Finland. When spread by rollers, the drying time around 1 + 2 hours. When sprayed, the drying takes just one hour. Work is also speeded up by the opportunity to measure the thickness of the film with an ultrasonic device. The new product attracted attention in the professionals following its launch.

“Spraying will speed up our work considerably. I also strongly believe that products of this kind will improve the quality of construction,” said Jussi Lunden at the launch event for Kiilto KeraPro. As a customer, he has been involved in the development of the product and is really satisfied with the end result.

Standing nearby, Jere Haikarainen is nodding his head:

“This will make our work easier. That the product dries quickly and does not run is really important at our construction sites. I definitely got a good impression,” he says.

New sprayable insulation

The Kiilto KeraPro quick water insulation has received praise at launch events in Lempäälä and Helsinki. And it’s no wonder. According to Marjaana Mussalo, Kiilto’s head of product development, Kiilto KeraPro is the quickest waterproofing solution in Finland.

“When spread by rollers, the drying time of the product is 1 + 2 hours, so in normal conditions the tiles can be installed on the same day. When sprayed, the product can dry in just one hour in favourable conditions. The one-component nature of the product also increases the work speed. There is no waste using KeraPro,” says Mussalo.

Ultrasound measurements are now possible

In connection with the launch of Kiilto KeraPro, a new method of measuring the thickness of the water insulation film was also presented. With ultrasonic measurement, the thickness of the dry film can be measured without breaking the film. The method has been tested by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. The meter can measure the thickness at several places without any need for taking test pieces and replacing them with new water insulation.
