Waterproofing

ActiTex is an active waterproofing membrane of high strength geotextiles encapsulating a sodium bentonite layer.

Using a non-woven & woven geotextile which are needle punched together, the layer of sodium bentonite is retained within a strong, yet pliable membrane.

All surface of the material is covered with 0,2 mm polymeric membrane.

ActiTex works by forming a low permeability membrane when in contact with water. Once wetted unconfined sodium bentonite can swell up to 15 times its dry volume.

ActiTex is designed to allow small worms of sodium bentonite to pass through into the concrete sealing any small cracks caused by ground settlement, concrete shrinkage.

The geotextile fibers are encapsulated into the surface of newly poured concrete forming a tenacious mechanical bond, eliminating the risk of water tracking.

The swelling abilities allow ActiTex to selfheal small tears or penetrations.

TYPICAL USES

  • Below ground structures wall & beneath slab
  • Property line construction- secant, contiguous piles, steel sheet piling, permanent, shuttering, stabilized earth retention walls, king post walls.
  • Void formers, compacted ground, insulation, clay heave board, etc.
  • Tunnels, earth covered roofs
  • Structures under continuous or intermittent hydrostatic pressure.

ADVANTAGES

  • Active self-healing properties
  • Mechanical bond, eliminating water tracking.
  • Conformable, pliable – can be applied to varied contours & substrates.
  • Robust membrane
  • Ease of repair.
  • All weather application, mechanical fix
  • VOC free
  • Proven world wide application.
  • Reproducible swell after wet-dry cycle.
  • Unaffected by freeze/thaw cycling.

LIMITATIONS

  • ActiTex is designed to be used in confinement.
  • ActiTex is designed for minimum 150mm concrete slabs & requires confinement and a minimum 75mm cover to all sides.
  • No standing/running water – Proper water management should be adopted before application of ActiTex.
  • In conditions where salt-water, sever ground water chemical contamination exists or is expected consult manufacture for approval.

ActiStop

ActiStop is a hydrophilic strip waterstop and is a formulated blend of sodium bentonite & butyl rubber. ActiStop is an active waterstop which reacts with water to seal construction joints within concrete. The seal resists hydrostatic pressure, stopping the passage of water through the joint. Due to the sodium bentonite content on contact with water ActiStop will swell within its confinement, self-injecting into localised honeycombing & minor fissures. ActiStop is an active waterstop designed to replace passive PVC/Rubber waterbars, without the need for pre-formed intersections, split forming or seam welding. ActiStop is manufactured in coil sizes designed for single operative installation.

ActiStop can be applied to concrete, steel or pipe(PVC). Coil ends are butt jointed (not overlapped) to form a continuous waterstop.

PACKAGING & SYSTEM ANCILLARIES

STORAGE

All products should be stored away from direct heat in dry conditions, under cover and away from the possibility of damage or premature contact with water.

HEALTH & SAFETY

Always refer to Materials Safety Data Sheets before use, or consult with manufacturer.

TYPICAL USES

  • Construction joints in in-situ reinforced concrete structures.
  • New to existing concrete construction.
  • Pipe penetrations – wall & floor.
  • Irregular surfaces.
  • Box out penetrations & remedial sections.

ADVANTAGES

  • Non-dimensional swell allows complete injection to surrounding voids.
  • Conformable – can be applied to a range of irregular substrates.
  • Resists in excess of 6 bar (60m) hydrostatic pressure.
  • Swelling many times more than its dry volume to form in-penetrable gel.
  • Simple butt jointing on site application.
  • Reproducible swell after wet-dry cycle.
  • Unaffected by freeze/thaw cycling.

LIMITATIONS

  • ActiStop is not designed to function in movement/expansion joints.
  • ActiStop is designed for minimum 20N/mm2 reinforced concrete & requires confinement and a minimum 75mm cover to all sides.
  • ActiStop should not be subjected to submersion or remain in contact with water prior to concrete pour. If the product exhibits any considerable swell prior to concrete pour it must be replaced.

In conditions where sever ground water chemical contamination exists or is expected consult manufacture for approval.
