We were tasked with providing a waterproofing system for the building of a new potable water tank for the chemical company CIRES. The water tank was designed to provide a backup water supply in case of an interruption of the main supply and to supply water to the fire suppression system in case of emergency.
Purpose for application: The client chose a crystalline waterproofing system with Krystaline Add admixture instead of the locally prescribed system which employed PVC liners.
Application Terms: Water storage tank 50 m long, 30 m wide, 5 m high
Products applied: Krystaline Add, Krystaline WATERBAR, Krystaline 1, Krystaline BLOCK
Application methods: Krystaline Add was added to the ready mix trucks at the site as a waterproofing admixture dosed at 2% of cement content. Krystaline 1, Krystaline BLOCK and Krystaline WATERBAR were used in conjunction to waterproof cold joints as per our instructions.
