History of the tiles

In the construction industry there is a concept of work that is inevitable and that 100% of new construction should be used, the waterproofing material especially in the Mexican republic is in great demand due to the geographic location of our country and the rainy season which usually lasts 6 -8 months each year. For builders, the decision to apply some kind of waterproofing varies depending on the surface, cost, durability, and warranty application, it makes this very often leads them to make a decision if it is not inaccurate information properly before taking the decision. Formerly the way to waterproof the roofs of the buildings did not include any material industrialized and had to use natural material taken from the plac e. The roofs of the old farms, churches, convents, houses, etc., Used the housetops system consisting of a mezzanine consists of wooden beams, clay tile handmade type quadroon and a layer of clean soil compacted achieved a cant approximately 40-80 inches depending on the area of each ceiling finally applied a layer of red brick annealing handmade petatillo shaped and finally apply a solution of alum which achieved an impermeable surface. Note that this type of roofs lacked rain downspouts and drainage could usually based on gargoyles located on the perimeter of the roof and usually emptied the water quickly to prevent puddling. Importantly, this protection system for roofs was used for many years, over 300 to be precise and only thanks to the industrial revolution and the discovery of oil begin to invent materials made from oil and ranging to revolutionize the market. With the advent of the oil industry in the 20's and the discovery of new materials such as oil refining petrolizados, refined gasolin e, diesel and refined oils of different densities, using a mixture of crude oil and ammonia known as tar, which began to be used as a protective coating on new concrete roof due to the smooth surface and the possibility of generating a rubber layer which when cooled becomes a flexible rubber. For a long time the tar was used directly in both foundations to roofs as it appears on the market the cardboard sheet asphalt, that is a very thick cardboard sheet with tar that washed into the role of a protective and waterproof membrane before of traditional brickwork.

But eventually the deteriorates, which appeared a leak or work of construction

builders discovered that after a certain time sheet caused him to get up the brickwork every time it moisture thereby causing the repair to become a true on the roof of the building.

In the sixties and through research conducted by the NASA in the space race trying to bring man to the moon, they discover a myriad of new materials that will force the transformation of the plastics industry, thereby achieving the discovery glass fiber, recycled material which enables applications in various fields and particularly in the area of the waterproofing, obtaining a mesh or fabric of very thin glass fiber and of small thickness, that being the principle achieve the prefabricated waterproofing membrane , as best call, membrane fiberglass reinforcement. This waterproofing system achieves a success in the seventies and eighties virtually eliminated the use of the famous tar and asphalt board, however, and due to the growth of cities, pollution and acid rain, it is found that the membrane system reinforcing mesh weathers very quickly forcing the customer to renew this membrane on average every three years, which cost in question fails to repay the investment, plus the usual inconvenience of having to remove the old material. The petrochemical industry continues to investigate new materials and prefabricated membranes achieved by modifying obtain crude oil and adding glass fibers and polyester layers of materials applied accomplishing heat vulcanizing plates allow achieving a perfectly sealed and obtaining a greater resistance to rain acidic weathering of materials and thickness more important, giving you greater elongation temperature changes in the material. In the last decade, the development and research of new materials is enabling significant progress achieved so there is now a rubber backing membrane that achieves greater resistance to acid rain and increased elongation sudden temperature changes achieving smooth and uniform coating but for now has not had the required disclosure and that once mention.
