Process water containers
Whether for commercial, industrial or agricultural use – process water must have a specific quality dependent on the application stipulated. Irrigation water must be free from materials deleterious to the ground and to plants. Cooling water must not damage the cooling unit with lime or algae. Despite the various contents and quality classes all process water has one thing in common – it does not need to be drinking quality but still places high demands on the substrate of the particular container. Optimum restoration measures specific to each project can durably and assuredly protect the process water container from potential risks.
1 Crack repair
Professionally evaluate and close cracks (see chapter on crack repair).
2 Levelling out voids
Seal voids and defects with a single application of ASOCRET-BIS-5/40 up to a maximum thickness of 40 mm. Apply “wet in wet“ over an ASOCRET-KS/HB slurry bonding coat.
3 Evening out surfaces
Apply ASORET-BIS-1/6 to the prepared substrate at the desired thickness (up to 6 mm in one layer) and post-treat with a felt or sponge board.
4 Waterproofing wall-floor junctions
At the wall and floor transition, as well as over connecting joints, trowel or brush apply AQUAFIN-RB400 and bond the waterproof tape ASO-Joint-Tape-2000-S without voids or folds. Completely cover whilst waterproofing the main areas.
5 Waterproofing all areas
Apply a minimum of two coats of AQUAFIN-RB400 by spray, brush or trowel.
