The waterproof-concrete construction method has been used in a range of practical applications for decades. In addition to underground car parks, waterproof-concrete is also used to build roofs and components that are in contact with soil – often including subsequent greening. Although this construction method has proven effective, damage can still often be seen today at recurring weak points, which include the construction and settlement joints of the individual components as well as the penetrations.
Triflex JWS is a fleece-reinforced waterproofing system for concrete joints, and is used specifically in new builds and in the refurbishment of white tanks. The system design consisting of high-quality PMMA resins is resistant to hydrolysis and roots and rhizomes in accordance with FLL specifications, and can also be used in areas in contact with soil.
