Olefini, a Greek manufacturer of air curtains, fan coils, fan heaters, plastic fans, ventilation equipment, air conditioning and heating accessories, had a problem at its new plant near the Mediterranean Sea. A concrete ramp, located 3m below sea level, was leaking seawater through numerous cracks due to high water pressure. Repairs had been attempted previously with conventional cement-based waterproofing products (at a thickness of 2cm), but the problem remained.
PENENTRON and PENEPLUG were successfully applied to solve the leaking. A drain pipe was used to alleviate water pressure during the waterproofing process.
