Use of AQUATRON materials
The materials are used for waterproofing and recovery of waterproofing in manufacturing of new structures, as well as in the repair and recovery of waterproofing of old structures:
- pump stations, mines, basements, water storage tanks and water towers;
- sewage collectors, waste treatment facilities;
- dams and waterworks;
- swimming pools, ice arenas;
- chimneys, cooling towers;
- floorings and floors;
- bridges and viaducts, roads;
- petroleum products storage tanks;
- subways, underground parking;
- CD and ES facilities;
- CW destruction facilities.
Waterproofing features of the penetrating action of the AQUATRON line
- The waterproofing effect is achieved by a reaction inside the structure of the construction material between components of the AQUATRON‑6 compound and components of the material to be protected. Chemical components of AQUATRON‑6 penetrate deeply into the material through capillaries under the action of osmotic (capillary) pressure. As a result of the chemical reactions, insoluble needle-shaped crystals are formed, which fill the capillaries and settlement cracks, thereby forcing water out. This process proceeds both in the direction of the water pressure and against it. The visual change in the structure of the waterproofing mixture in contact with the processed structure measured by an electron microscope shows a penetration of the compound to the depth of more than 150 mm.
- It has been established that when the AQUATRON‑6 waterproofing compound is used, vapor impermeability (the ability to dry following wetting and to pass air without introducing moisture) is preserved.
- Use of the materials increases resistance to freezing and the integrity of the concrete.
- Application of the materials provides waterproofing for the entire service life of the concrete facility.
- The materials can be applied both to the interior and the exterior of structures, regardless of the water pressure direction.
- The materials are simple to use.
- The materials provide corrosion-proofing to the impact of chemical substances of the concrete surface.
- In accordance with the Order of the Government of Moscow No. 1021‑RZP dated December 22, 1999, waterproofing mixtures are recommended for use when constructing buildings and other facilities in Moscow.
- The materials have been entered into the registry of state registration and are permitted for use in household and drinking water facilities.
