Urethane waterproofing materials which currently being used most commonly in the Korean domestic market have high applicability and construct layers without forming any joints, but under the influence of low temperature and low humidity, as well as the thickness of the applied layer, the curing time of this material may become extended in construction sites. To resolve these issues, a proposed method of using water-hardening type of polyurethane waterproofing materials are being developed. However, there currently lacks any standards or evaluation methods on determining an optimal mixture ratio of water for the water-hardening polyurethane waterproofing materials. Therefore, workers and construction workers are relying on their hands-on-skills and experience to determine this ratio and are not able to obtain a consistent performance quality out of these materials. Therefore, for the establishment of a board applicability of the water-hardening polyurethane waterproofing methods in construction sites, this study objectively analyzes the changes in the performance of these materials depending on the changes of the water mixture ratio and attempts to procure the optimal ratio on the basis of forming a provisionary standard. The study prepares mixtures of varying ratio(no water added, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40 and 50) and conducts comparative analysis respective mixtures` performances and their changes in the physical properties in an objective manner and proposes a provisional optimal value that can serve as a data base that can be used as a reference for future studies.
