Water tanks Waterproofing
Homeworks Corp., offers solutions for sealing potable water tanks or cisterns in concrete or concrete. The waterproofing treatment is carried out through a crystallization process that prevents the penetration of water from any direction in the presence of hydrostatic pressure while providing resistance to attack by aggressive chemicals .
The waterproofing of water reserves, in addition to providing a solution to water leakage that translates into economic losses , also provides a sanitation solution that prevents the spread of microbes that can affect people's health.
At Homeworks Corp., we have a team specialized in waterproofing concrete water reservoirs with Vandex and Xypex products. Both waterproofing systems worked by crystallizing the concrete surface.
The founder of Vandex invented crystalline waterproofing technology in 1943, founding a whole new industry and gaining worldwide recognition for the crystalline performance and unmatched high quality of crystalline technology in concrete waterproofing and protection. Vandex provides innovative yet simple solutions to keep structures dry and safe, and prevent chemical attack, even in demanding environments such as those required in the drinking water industry. Vandex products are used to preserve and protect structures through 7 main technologies for waterproofing and protecting all types of concrete.
Vandex crystalline products prevent water from penetrating concrete. For potable water applications, Vandex coatings also exceed the required high hygiene standards. As one of the market leaders in technical skills and knowledge of crystalline technology, Vandex has had an excellent international reputation for decades. Vandex is certified under ISO 9001 and 14001 quality and environmental management systems, which verifies that Vandex meets the requirements of international quality and environmental management standards.
Basic to the development of Xypex crystalline technology was a thorough understanding of the chemical and physical composition of concrete. Concrete is porous. Its tunnel-shaped capillaries are a natural part of its mass and allow the passage of water and other liquids. The Xypex researchers recognized the opportunity for a chemical treatment that would fill these capillaries to prevent the penetration of water and other liquids from any direction. Through diffusion, the reactive chemicals in Xypex products use water as a migratory medium to enter and travel through capillaries in concrete. This process precipitates a chemical reaction between Xypex, moisture, and the by-products of cement hydration, forming a new insoluble crystalline structure. This integral structure fills the capillary tracts making the concrete waterproof. This is how Xypex concrete waterproofing products came about.
The fact that Xypex Crystalline Technology is now specified and used in thousands of diverse waterproofing projects around the world is a testament to the original concept. Crystalline waterproofing technology was an idea that grew because Xypex chemists questioned what concrete was all about and found a way to improve it.
