Aggregate Industries has partnered with BASF Construction Chemicals to launch a new range of specialised concretes designed to protect a structure from water ingress.
The new range – called Watertight – offers contractors and specifiers a fast track solution that prevents water from flowing into or from a structure. When correctly specified and constructed, Watertight is fully compliant with BS 8102:2009 Code of practice for protection of below ground structures against water from the ground Type B construction. It is not sensitive to weather conditions and is available as a pumpable or flowing mix in slump and flow grades.
Designed by Aggregate Industries, the Watertight range encompasses a full scope of admixture-driven solutions and is available as a three-tiered waterproofing solution; Watertight Pro Protect, Watertight Super Protect and Watertight Core Protect.
Joanne Wilkins, Head of Business Development – Asphalt and Ready-Mixed Concrete at Aggregate Industries, said: “At Aggregate Industries, we understand that waterproofing isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. That’s why we’ve partnered with BASF to develop our Watertight range into a new three-tiered system – giving architects and specifiers greater flexibility than ever before when choosing an appropriate waterproofing solution.
“What’s more, given the ever-rising importance of sustainability, we are the first construction materials supplier to offer Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) to determine the environmental impact of our Watertight concrete. This will make it easier for our clients to meet the environmental requirements of a project by providing detailed information on everything from production to recycling options.”
