A specialized group of goods known as waterproofing chemicals guards the structural integrity of buildings against water infiltration. Buildings' lifespans can be shortened by excessive water penetration, which results in electrical, metal, and health problems. When used outside of a foundation system, waterproofing chemicals extend the usable life of the concrete and provide durability to infrastructure. These features reduce the expense of building maintenance. The industry's main drivers are the rising cost of construction and raw materials.

Key waterproofing chemicals includes polyurethane, elastomeric coatings, expanded polyethylene, polysulfide sealants, and acrylic polymer. These substances can be found in slurry, liquid, and solid forms. Sheet membranes and liquid-applied systems make up the next division of waterproofing chemicals. Infrastructure development for commercial, industrial, and residential uses are the end use categories.
