The 24th Universiade (or 2019 World Student Games), scheduled for March 2-12, 2019 in Krasnoyarsk, comprises events in 11 winter sports. This international multi-sport event is organized by the International University Sports Federation (FISU) for university athletes. The name is a combination of the words "University" and "Olympiad."
The Penetron System was applied topically to all the concrete structures underlying the stadium tribunes. The products used to waterproof and protect the concrete structures include PENETRON, a surface-applied crystalline waterproofing material, PENECRETE MORTAR, a crystalline waterproofing mortar, and PENEBAR SW, a swellable waterstop installed along all construction joints. Local Penetron experts advised the construction company how to apply the crystalline treatment to best effect in a climate that is hot in the summer (>35°C) and brutally cold during the long Arctic winters (often -35°C).
