Detailing Bentonite Granules.
Suitable for use on both new and remedial waterproofing projects, including:
A naturally occurring sodium bentonite in the form of varying sizes of granules, used for detailing to the Newton HydroBond System, specifically where Newton 403 HydroBond terminates for otherwise difficult to detail building elements, such as piled walls, support piles, pile caps and protrusions through the membrane.
Bentonite is absorbent clay formed millions of years ago from volcanic ash. The sodium bentonite in Newton 314-BG can absorb many times its mass in water.
The property of swelling on contact with water makes sodium bentonite useful as a sealant, since it provides a self-sealing, low permeability barrier. It swells up to 15 times its initial size to form a dense, water impermeable paste. When confined, the swell is controlled, forming a dense waterproofing component that fully seals these otherwise difficult to detail joints against water ingress.
Bentonite is a naturally occurring material and the colour can range from silver to light tan to dark brown, whilst the granules will range from 0.5–16 mm. Consult manufacturer for further details.
