- Uniflex with the marking "K". This waterproofing material can only be used for outdoor applications. The composition of this uniflex includes coarse-grained powder, foil (from the front side) and, of course, polyethylene film.
- Material of mark "P". Unlike the previous version, this uniflex can be used as an internal waterproofing. As for the composition, it practically does not differ from the variant of the brand "K". The only differences are in the fine-grained dusting and the absence of foil.
