Concrete reservoir construction

The use PVC-P geomembranes as a waterproofing for concrete basins 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 long living. Concrete is not homogeneous and has a few week 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 concrete. Concrete basins conserve whatever liquids are stored in them, from drinking water to chemical substances which should not enter the ground water table. With PVC geomembranes as waterproofing it can be made sure that these liquids will stay in the basin.

RENOLIT Group has the right product to make sure that your concrete basin reaches the highest level of water tightness. 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.

For detailed information about how to execute the waterproofing of concrete reservoirs see the document about “Waterproofing of Concrete Basins”.

Depending on the employment RENOLIT can offer the right membrane

  • RENOLIT ALKORPLAN 35052 - opaque geomembrane for drinking water limited UV resistance
  • RENOLIT ALKORPLAN 35053 - opaque geomembrane not UV-resistant
  • RENOLIT ALKORPLAN 35054 - opaque geomembrane for irrigation and industrial basins UV resistant
  • RENOLIT ALKORPLAN 35554 - opaque geomembrane for canals with PMMA coating
  • RENOLIT ALKORPLAN 02329 - black geomembrane for ponds

The geomembranes of RENOLIT are corresponding to the most important standards as

  • Attestation Mairie de Paris - France
