Waterproof System Foundation & Tunnel

Waterproofing and water tightness  products and technologies for  civil engineering and hydraulics, foundations, tunnels, subway stations and underground parking, subways, underground tanks, filled with earth flat roofs,roof gardens, ponds.

OVERVIEW

G&P INTECH  has introduced in the market since 1989 several advanced technologies to solve problems of below -grade waterproofing foundations with long life expectation over 100 years.

The solutions adopted are active barrier systems, instead of passive barrier systems, able to interact with the fluid and prevent any infiltration  at any time during the life of the building.

The system include products  like  geomembrane BENTOSIL,  geosynthetic clay barrier marked     , hydroswelling sealing joints WATERSTOP  BZ 100, WATERSTOP  BZ 200, IDROSWELL,  IMPERGEN R-FLEX, IMPERGEN FLEX TUBE IFT.

The Company production line include osmotic materials for concrete waterproofing like CEMESEAL (water pressure resistant coating) , RAPID PLUG  (fast setting hydraulic compound), MACLIM (two-component flexible coating).

The main applications are on below-grade civil engineering constructions, foundations,  tunnels, subways, metro stations, underground parkings.

 

PRODUCTS

Geomembrane BENTOSIL marked CE

BENTOSIL is a needle-punched geosynthetic  clay  barrier consisting of a layer of low permeability sodium bentonite supported by two sheets of woven and no-woven polypropylene geotextile. The swelling material is a natural sodium bentonite which has a high grade for swelling (> 26 ml/2g) and a liquid limit value higher than 520%. The connection between the cover and carrier geotextile is achieved by a specific reinforcement system which anable the two geotextiles to be joined by thousands of fibres through the bentonite layer. This gives the barrier a perfect pre-confinement and increases the capability  to remain exposed before the final confinement is reached. At the same time the size of bentonite’s  particle allows a full saturation of geotextile under hydration and increases the self-seaming of geomembrane on the overlapping area.

The main technical characteristics of Bentosil marked CE according with EN 13491:2006 are the followings:

Non woven PP geotextile                               220 g/m²

Woven PP geotextile                                     120 g/m²

Swelling grade bentonite ASTM D 5890-95     >26  ml/2g

Thickness  geomembrane   EN ISO 9863-1     6 mm

Bentonite mass per unit area   EN 14196        5 kg/m²

Index Flux (liquid tightness)   ASTM D 5887    5E-9 m³/m²/s

Tensile strength   EN 10139                           12,5 kN/m

Static puncture resistance  EN ISO 12236       2 kN

Durability    EN 13438                                   > 25 years

Packaging                                                       BENTOSIL is available in rolls:

                                                                        Type 1:  roll 1,1x 5 m  (20 rolls per pallet)

                                                                        Type 3: roll 2,5×25 m – Type 4: roll 5×45 m

 

Installation

The high swelling capability of the natural sodium bentonite, combined with mechanical characteristics of geotextile, turn BENTOSIL a reliable product for below-grade waterproofing, even where boundary environmental conditions change (swelling/drying and freezing/thawing cycles) or where there are interacting polluted fluids ( remark: for application in contact with high salinity waters please contact Company  technical dept.). The installation is simple and fast due to the extreme adaptability of the roll. The system can be applied both in pre-casting and post-casting applications. Overlapping of geomembrane do not require any welding or mechanical intervention.

In vertical applications  and where need, BENTOSIL is installed by nail with wide heads and LDPE washers in the overlapping.

Horizontal applications: lay a poor concrete as subbase before applying  the roll. In case concrete will not be laid , compact the soil at 85% Modified Proctor, avoid cutting stone and fill  holes on the surface. The surfaces have  to be free, regular, clean and without standing water. Overlapping will be 15-30 cm according with work and size of roll.

Vertical applications: preparation of surface as above. BENTOSIL has to fixed in the overlapping by nail  with wide heads and LDPE washers, approx.  40 cm distance each.

  

HYDROSWELLING SEALING JOINTS

G&P INTECH  has developed several hydroswelling  joints used in below grade constructions for the sealing of the vertical and horizontal joints, cracks and fissures.

IMPERGEN FLEX TUBE IFT

IFT  is a preventative high mechanical resistant injection tube of 12 mm diameter for the permanent sealing of cold and construction joints in concrete, pipe penetrations and voids between slurry walls and slabs, etc. Where new and old concrete will join an injection tube is installed. When water is infiltrating into the joint, an  injection grout is injected through the PVC end pieces, which protrude out of the concrete at easily accessible places. This way the joint is sealed. Preferably, the injection will be executed after curing and setting of the concrete. The leaking joints can thus be permanently sealed. IFT  will be installed onto the hardened concrete during formwork installation. In case of rough surfaces, the gap between IFT  and the surface should be filled with IDROSWELL mastic.  The tuboline IFT  is cut to the required length (recommended maximum length is 6 metres). IFT is fixed on  the concrete with clips every 25 cm. Overlapping as per drawing.

For the installation and injection with IMPERGEN resin proceed according to the Company recommendations.
