The Aeon Mall Long Biên, located just east of Hanoi, opened in 2018. Set in an area of nearly 10 hectares, the new mall in Hà Đông offers a wide variety of around 220 stores, services and family entertainment on three floors, including the AEON supermarket. Further, the complex has parking for 2,100 cars – and over 9,000 motorcycles.
Working with both project contractors – Kajima and Hoa Binh – the Penetron Vietnam team proposed an application of PENETRON, a surface-applied crystalline waterproofing material, to all concrete structures exposed to water and sewage effluent. Applied to concrete by brush or spray, PENETRON penetrates deeply into the concrete matrix in the presence of moisture. The resulting chemical reaction fills microcracks, pores and capillaries with an insoluble crystalline formation, making the concrete impermeable.
