Water Holding Vessels

Concrete Sealant is Essential for Water-Holding Vessels

Obviously, when building a water-holding vessel it’s important that it’s waterproof. It doesn’t matter if it’s a pool or a treatment plant. It won’t do anyone much good if it’s leaking. With concrete waterproofing contractors can safely retain liquids. They can also maintain the stability of structures for years. Radcon Formula #7 and CWS Admix have been effectively used to this end in a variety of constructions.

Radcon Formula #7 was used to waterproof the cooling towers of one thermoelectric plant. The Brazilian plant uses seawater as a coolant. That meant the towers had to be more than waterproof. They also had to protect against salt. Salt and other chlorides are highly corrosive to concrete. A dependable sealant is vital to maintaining the life of concrete. It can also save money by preventing expensive repairs. Radcon Formula #7 goes deep into concrete to fill it completely. This keeps the concrete from absorbing water, salts, and more. Otherwise, these contaminants could compromise its integrity. The sealant will hold up for the life of the concrete. With its 20-year warranty it can be relied on for years to come.

Radcon Formula #7 & CWS Admix are Non-toxic & Eco-Friendly

The product is also non-toxic, and emits no VOC’s. This makes it safe for storing potable water. Because of this, Radcon Formula #7 and CWS Admix are often used to waterproof drinking water facilities. One example is a water desalination facility in Oman. The concrete sealant was applied to a 60,000 square meter area. It was used due to its 100% watertight capabilities. It keeps the holding areas secure to provide water for more than 300,000 people.

Radcon Formula #7 and CWS Admix aren’t only non-toxic. They’re also biodegradable. This makes them the greenest available waterproofing product. Suarga Resort in Indonesia chose it for its rooftops, swimming pools, and tanks. The sustainable resort had strict guidelines for its materials. Radcon Formula #7 has an Ecospecifier certification from Australia. It also boasts a Green Label certification from Singapore. This made Radcon Formula #7 the clear choice for the project.

It isn’t only industrial applications where Radcon Formula #7 and CWS Admix are seen. They are often also used for pools, and even water parks. They used the sealant in the construction of Wahooo! Water Park in Bahrain. The park required a sealant that could hold 2 million liters of water. Radcon Formula #7 successfully sealed all the water holding areas. This included wave pools, rides, and more. Thanks to its effectiveness, there’s no need to demolish Radcon treated concrete. This reduces potential repairs and landfill waste.

 

Radcon Formula #7 is a Long Lasting Sealant

This sealant will protect water holding vessels for decades. This is evident in its use at the Stamford Grand Hotel. The lake at the Australian resort is home to a number of fish and plants.

Fish are sensitive to toxins, so they need a safe and effective sealant. The eco-friendly Radcon Formula #7 was applied in 1989. It’s still watertight today, more than 25 years later. When it comes to water holding vessels, the right concrete sealant is essential. Radcon Formula #7 and CWS Admix are the best options thanks to their waterproofing effectiveness, and non-toxic qualities. Regardless of if it’s a local pool or a large cooling tank. This concrete sealant goes deep to waterproof your structure. With the use of these products your structures will be protected for years to come.
