Application

Typical below-ground applications include:

  • Backfilled concrete walls.
  • Masonry block walls.
  • Earth-covered roofs.
  • Tunnel roofs.

Typical above ground split-slab construction applications include:

  • Plaza decks.
  • Parking decks.
  • Balconies.

Additionally, SWELLTITE can be used for interior split-slab applications for mechanical rooms, kitchens, and laboratory facilities. Applications may include structures under continuous or intermittent hydrostatic pressure.


Description

A waterproofing composite of sodium bentonite compound integrally bonded to a geomembrane liner. This composition combines the active waterproofing benefits of sodium bentonite with the strength and puncture resistance of a thick geomembrane liner.


Features and benefits:

  • The reactive bentonite compound can expand to seal small punctures in the membrane.
  • Factory controlled thickness of 2 mm.
  • Engineered composite consists of a thick geomembrane liner and bentonite compound with a clear release film attached.
  • Contains virtually zero VOC and can be installed to green concrete.
  • Designed for below-ground vertical and horizontal structural foundation surfaces, as well as above ground split-slab construction.
  • Additionally, SWELLTITE can be used for interior split-slab applications for mechanical rooms, kitchens, and laboratory facilities.
  • Applications may include structures under continuous or intermittent hydrostatic pressure.
