    Canals

    The use of PVC-P geomembranes as a waterproofing for canals is a sophisticated and safe technology to avoid important water losses due to cracks and failures in the basic construction.

    Countries with lack of water are forced to transport water long ways to the place of its destination - canals are the most common way for that. Many thousands km of concrete canals were constructed in the past but only fulfil their task in unsatisfying way as the losses of this precious liquid over long distances cannot be ignored anymore today. They loose water through cracks, open concrete joints and broken concrete.

    This major problem can be easily solved by using waterproofing geomembranes which guarantees water tightness over a long time period, especially when protected.  Geomembranes with high grade of protection against UV radiation provided with a special PMMA coating are destined as waterproofing for the canal bed due to outstanding mechanical performance and resistance against puncturing.

     

    The RENOLIT Group has the right product to make sure that a maximum of water will arrive at its destination. The technical service is also available to you in finding the right technical solution for your waterproofing task. This combination should help you to offer a satisfying work to your client.
