Astana International Airport
The expansion project for the Astana International Airport included a new terminal and a two-level parking lot. The new terminal increased the airport’s annual passenger capacity to approximately 7 million passengers.
Temperatures in Astana during the cold winter months can drop as low as 6°F (-14°C). Because of such temperature extremes, PENETRON crystalline materials were specified to waterproof the airport’s concrete runway aprons. PENETRON’s crystalline technology reduces the permeability of concrete to help it resist the damage resulting from extended freeze-thaw cycles common to this part of Central Asia.
