Situation:

Shangri-La Group owns a number of luxury hotels and resorts throughout the world’s major cities and tourist attractions. International hospitalities and luxury facilities of Shangri-La bring unforgettable enjoyment to guests all over the world.

Challenges:

As a five star hotel, Shangri-La has very high requirements on water proof job and tile installation.
Swimming pools and Spa rooms are located in a humid environment for a long time. It means both waterproofing and moisture-proofing are needed. In order to avoid potential dangers caused by humidity, it is necessary to set the coating for anticorrosion based on the structure of the pool.
For illustration, the swimming pool of Tianjin Shangri-La Hotel is located on the third floor of the building. To make sure neither rising damp nor leak would occur in the future, high quality of waterproofing on the negative side of below grade surface is necessary to adjacent floors.
Normally, pools are filled in with water for a long time. The chlorine in the water is acidic. Lime scales and mosses can easily accumulate at the bottom of pools as well as pool walls. It impacts beauty of the swimming pool under the circumstances of acid-Alkali corrosion.
