What is HYTEC sheet waterproofing?

The HYTEC system is ideally suited to concrete, steel, iron and masonry rail structures with loose-filled, ageing or friable substrates.

The HYTEC system is fast to apply, offers high tear and puncture resistance for long lasting protection and weather tolerant to allow year round application, ideal for short possession rail refurbishment projects.
