Few projects place a greater demand or reliance on waterproofing technologies than mining operations and major hydro-electric projects such as dams and reservoirs. From the early beginning of the project, the systems must be designed to handle a variety of issues including chemical aggressions, structural movements, extreme temperature variations and gas-related hydraulic pressure. Our bitumen geomembranes deliver outstanding mechanical properties in these applications, providing complete confidence that the structures will remain water-tight over time.
Manufactured from SBS elastomeric bitumen reinforced with a non-woven polyester geotextile, the solutions can typically resist puncturing stresses without the need for additional safety layers. Their excellent chemical resistance also makes them a natural choice as an environmental protection measure for mining waste deposits. Our experienced technical support team work with project teams to ensure each solution meets their requirements.
