The World's Leading Bentonite-Geotextile Waterproofing System
Voltex is a highly effective waterproofing composite comprised of two high strength geotextiles and 1.10-lbs. of sodium bentonite per square foot; the most bentonite in any commercially available waterproofing product. The two geotextiles are interlocked by a proprietary needlepunching process which encapsulates and holds the granular bentonite in place and assures a consistent material application.
Voltex is ideal for waterproofing under slabs and property line applications. Under slabs, Voltex can be installed directly over a properly prepared substrate without the need of a concrete mud slab. Its durable composite construction resists damage from tradesman installing reinforcing steel over it and inclement weather. With the durability of the needlepunched composite and the ability to self-heal, Voltex offers major construction advantages over adhered sheet membrane and fluid applied waterproofing.
For property line applications, Voltex is simply installed directly to the retention wall and then the concrete is poured directly against it using a single sided form. Other applications include backfilled concrete foundation walls and cut-and-cover tunnels.
Installation is Fast and Easy
Simply place into position and secure with washer head mechanical fasteners. Voltex can be installed to green concrete without primers or adhesives, in virtually any weather, including freezing temperatures and damp conditions. When concrete is poured against Voltex, a tenacious mechanical bond yielding an average adhesion value of 15 pounds per linear inch (15 pli) is created by the wet concrete solidifying around the geotextile fibers.
