Save Time with VOLTEX®
The COVID-19 alert level restrictions have proven effective for stopping the virus in its tracks but as we are all too aware has also managed to do the same for most construction activity. If you are searching for innovative ways to catch up on lost time, Allco VOLTEX® waterproofing membranes may be the answer.
Allco VOLTEX® can save you time by being able to be installed on damp substrates without a protective layer or in harsh weather conditions, including rain or snow. There is no need for priming and can be installed directly to compacted substrates without using a blinding concrete layer.
On vertical surfaces, Allco VOLTEX® is mounted by nailing to concrete and on horizontal surfaces, it is simply laid direct to country. Utilizing a proprietary needle punching process, the geo textiles form an extremely strong composite that maintains equal coverage of bentonite as well protection from construction-related damage.
Allco VOLTEX® contains zero VOC, can be installed in almost any weather conditions to green concrete, and most importantly, has proven effective on both new and remedial waterproofing projects worldwide.
Allco VOLTEX® works by forming a low permeability membrane upon contact with water. When wet, 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 Allco VOLTEX® can self-seal small concrete cracks caused by ground settlement, concrete shrinkage, or seismic action; problems over which there is normally no control forming a strong mechanical bond to concrete when the geotextile fibres are encapsulated into the surface of poured-in-place concrete.
Allco VOLTEX® is designed for below-ground vertical and horizontal structural foundation surfaces. Typical applications include:
• Backfilled concrete walls
• Earth covered roofs
• Structural slabs and footings
• Property line construction.
