VOLTEX - Model DSCR - Waterproofing Composite of High Strength Geotextiles
VOLTEX DSCR is a highly effective waterproofing composite of high strength geotextiles,1.10 pounds of contaminant resistant sodium bentonite per square foot, and a integrally bonded polyethylene liner. The high swelling, low permeable, contaminant resistant sodium bentonite is encapsulated between the two geotextiles.
VOLTEX DSCR is a highly effective waterproofing composite of high strength geotextiles, 1.0 pounds of contaminant resistant sodium bentonite per square foot, and an integrally bonded polyethylene liner. The high swelling, low permeable, contaminant resistant sodium bentonite is encapsulated between the two geotextiles. A proprietary needlepunch process interlocks the geotextiles together forming an extremely strong composite that maintains the equal coverage of bentonite, as well as, protects it from inclement weather and construction related damage. Once backfilled, VOLTEX DSCR hydrates and forms a monolithic waterproofing membrane.
VOLTEX DSCR contains zero VOC, can be installed in almost any weather condition to green concrete, and most importantly, has proven effective on both new and remedial waterproofing projects worldwide. VOLTEX DSCR works by forming a low permeability membrane upon contact with water. When wetted, unconfined bentonite can swell up to 15 times its dry volume. When confined under pressure the swell is controlled, forming a dense, impervious waterproofing membrane. The swelling action of VOLTEX DSCR can self-seal small concrete racks caused by ground settlement, concrete shrinkage, or seismic action. VOLTEX DSCR forms a strong mechanical bond to concrete when the geotextile fibers are encapsulated into the surface of cast-in-place concrete.
VOLTEX DSCR is designed for below-grade structural foundation surfaces. Typical cast-inplace concrete applications include backfilled concrete walls, earth-covered roofs, structural slabs, tunnels, and property line construction. Property line construction applications include soldier pile and lagging, metal sheet piling, shotcrete and stabilized earth retention walls. Applications may include structures under continuous or intermittent hydrostatic pressure. VOLTEX DSCR is ideal for low to moderate saline or contaminated ground water conditions. VOLTEX DSCR resists higher levels of the following contaminant’s: nitrates, phosphates, chlorides, sulfates, lime and organic solvents.
