Integral Concrete Waterproofing
SPECIAL FEATURE: Sentosa Island, Singapore
May 2012

Dear Reader,

As the market leader in crystalline waterproofing and concrete protection, Penetron is proud of the contribution our products make to the stunning projects profiled in this newsletter. We work together with the local engineers, contractors and architects in Singapore that have transformed the coastline of the city’s island into Asia’s favourite playground.

This special edition on Sentosa Island documents some of the newest and most attractive projects – protected by Penetron. We hope you enjoy our latest newsletter.

The Coast at Sentosa Cove

Completed in 2007, “The Coast,” a premier condo development, is situated on the longest coastal stretch of Sentosa Cove.  Inhabitants of all 249 units (including 41 private berths) enjoy panoramic views of the South China Sea and the enchanting waterways.

The Coast consists of 13500m3 of below-grade concrete treated with Penetron Admix; this prevents seawater ingress and protects against chloride penetration. Peneseal Pro was used to treat 345m2 of landscape deck.
