Problems and solutions

Waterproofing of underground structures

One of the biggest problems in the construction of underground works consists in waterproofing and protecting the structures.

There are various systems for waterproofing underground works, but almost all of them form only a superficial barrier, which has a limited duration over time and which can be damaged by various factors, thus causing internal leaks. SUPERSHIELD, with the crystallizing products of the DPC range, definitively and permanently solves the problem of waterproofing basements. SUPERSHIELD ADMIX, mixed in the concrete at the time of its preparation, waterproofs the entire mass making it impermeable to water, from any direction it comes from. Furthermore, the product remains latent in the concrete, and in the event of cracks that are created later, it intervenes by sealing them. ADMIX, by sealing the pores and capillaries of the concrete, protects it from external chemical agents, which would attack the reinforcing bars, and prolongs its life.

PROBLEM TO SOLVE

prevention of infiltrations and humidity during the construction of underground rooms in constant contact with groundwater

SOLUTION TO BE ADOPTED

application of the DRYBOX system “white tub type” , waterproofing system for underground rooms under the water table
