The use of PVC-P geomembranes as a waterproofing for concrete reservoirs is a sophisticated and safe technology to avoid important water losses due to cracks and failures in the basic construction.
Time has shown that concrete became the basic construction material in all fields of civil engineering due to its reliability, resistance to all kind of influences, stability and durability. Concrete is not homogeneous and has a few weak points, as no elasticity, weak resistance against aggressive chemicals and receives cracks due to changing temperatures – even the so called “watertight concrete”. Therefore concrete needs support to be perfect. Reinforcement bars raise the elasticity; additives improve the chemical resistance and waterproofing with geomembranes guarantee for water tightness of the concrete. Concrete reservoirs conserve whatever liquids are stored in them, from drinking water to chemical substances which should not enter the ground water. With PVC geomembranes as waterproofing it can be made sure that these liquids will stay in the basin.
The RENOLIT Group has the right product to make sure that your concrete basin reaches the highest level of water tightness. The technical service is available to you and will help you finding the right technical solution for your waterproofing project. This combination should help you to offer a satisfying work to your client.
