Integral Concrete Waterproofing
Penetron® Industry Newsletter - INDIA Edition  
July 2009

Welcome to another edition of the Penetron INDIA newsletter!

With the award of contract for waterproofing works at Chennai Airport Modernisation project and completion of water tank waterproofing at Mumbai International Airport, Penetron has established itself firmly for Airport projects and also in the Govt. Sector in India.

Team Penetron continues to grab major projects in the fast upcoming Bandra Kurla Complex in Central Mumbai, which has the most challenging water table conditions in the city, being next to the MITHI River that created havoc in the area in the July 26, 2005 downpour of 926 mm in 24 hours.

Jaypee Greens - Greater Noida, an up market location in North India, a known high water table area, selects Penetron for its integrated township project.

Penetron® Feature: PENETRON ADMIX RCPT ( ASTM C 1202) - Another measure for impermeability of Concrete

The exceptional performance of Penetron Admix in terms of Water Impermeability of concrete has been discussed in the past. Another important factor that needs to be analyzed is the reduction in Rapid Chloride Penetration Test (RCPT) values as per ASTM C 1202.

Penetron Admix when added to concrete @ 0.8% by weight of cement brings down the RCPT values by about 50% when compared to the control concrete. Recent tests conducted at Sardar Patel College of Engineering, Mumbai confirm that the RCPT values for Penetron Admix concrete falls below 800 Coulombs, which indicates very low chloride ion permeability.

This aspect is particularly important when Penetron Admix is considered for use in Saline Conditions, such as sites closer to Coastal areas & high salt content soils.

After attending to essential services and provision of alternative arrangements, Mumbai International Airport has just started the works on buildings involving below grade structures. Work on one such structure, an Underground water tank was started in January 2009 and a combination of Penetron Admix and Penebar SW was selected for waterproofing of this tank.

The work on this water tank has been completed. The results 7-days of Hydro test for this tank indicate a drop of 5mm in water level as against 40mm allowed as per IS:3370 Part I.

Based up on the successful completion of waterproofing works and the subsequent Hydro Test of this tank, ENGINEERING DESIGN RESEARCH CENTER (EDRC) of L&T specified the use of Penetron Admix and Penebar SW45 in another Grey water tank.
