Ultraseal - Model XP - Active Polymer Waterproofing Membrane
Featuring XP technology, the latest innovation in active waterproofing, ULTRASEAL XP provides exceptional performance in a wide range of ground contaminates. Proven effective in both hydrostatic and non-hydrostatic conditions, the self-sealing ability of ULTRASEAL XP seals minor cuts or damage to the membrane.
ULTRASEAL i s a u nique w aterproofing m em brane that utilizes an advanced Active Polymer Core (APC) technology that is ten times less permeable and more chemically resistant than traditional active waterproofing membranes. ULTRASEAL c ombines t he A PC technology with a strong geomembrane liner for exceptional performance. ULTRASEAL contains zero VOC, can be installed in almost any weather condition to green concrete, and most importantly, has proven effective in both hydrostatic and nonhydrostatic conditions. Two ULTRASEAL membrane composites - BT and SP - provide waterproofing protection for a myriad of applications. ULTRASEAL SP is a three component membrane consisting of the APC core layer between a geotextile and a geomembrane. ULTRASEAL BT composite membrane consists of the APC core layer integrally bonded to a geomembrane.
ULTRASEAL works by forming a low permeable membrane upon contact with water. When hydrated, unconfined APC can swell many times its dry volume. When confined by backfill or concrete the swell is controlled, forming a dense, impervious waterproofing membrane. The swelling action of the APC technology resists high levels of groundwater contaminants and can self-seal small concrete cracks caused by ground settlement, concrete shrinkage, or seismic action. ULTRASEAL forms a strong mechanical bond to concrete when the concrete is poured against the membrane.
ULTRASEAL SP is designed for primarily under slab applications. ULTRASEAL BT is designed for backfilled foundation walls, earth-covered roof structures and property line construction. Property line construction applications include soldier pile and lagging, metal sheet piling, auger cast caisson, shotcrete and stabilized earth retention walls. The membranes are compatible and are used in conjunction to complete the waterproofing. Applications may include structures under continuous or intermittent hydrostatic pressure.
