For Waterproofing applications we offer a variety of solutions to meet the demands of modern day projects. Typically waterproofing applications include roofs, basements, plaza decks, below ground structures, swimming pools and tanks as well as numerous applications for wet areas and leakage repair. To meet these demands we have a variety of solutions that can be classed as either liquid or sheet form, these may be based on crystalline chemically reactive materials, acrylic polymers, bituminous polymer blends, polyurethanes, EPDM or other kinds of polymer combinations. Correct knowledge and design at details such as joints, protrusions etc. are essential in providing a long-term trouble free barrier against water ingress. This will prevent premature decay of the structure or costly damage to internal assets of a building. Trepax has a long track record in correct design and installation of such materials and systems and the table showing selected references is testament to this. More detailed reference lists or case histories are available on request.

 

PROJECT


pix-service-waterproofThe example project shows a specialist application of waterproofing materials applied at several buildings at Bangkok New International Airport, Thailand. The buildings included the Airport Information Management System building, roof of the main control tower and the main Air Traffic Control Buildings, which house very sophisticated and important computer equipment. The total area was in excess of 2,500 m2. Trepax was chosen as the supplier and applicator for this project due the technical nature of the installations and our experience and expertise in applying such high value waterproofing systems to important buildings.

  

SYSTEM

The system was based on EPDM sheet and was supplied by one of our USA based suppliers who are well known in the field of EPDM. This system had many complicated details and fastening system with many sub materials to be applied at these details. Correct knowledge and experience in how to prepare the surface, prepare details and apply the membrane to general areas, details and terminations was essential to provide a long term leak free solution to protect the buildings important assets. The waterproofing system was one part of a complete system with insulation and in some cases concrete toppings applied over metal roof decks which was installed by our service teams.

 

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

 
The project being a new national show case asset of Thailand was a prestigious project and Trepax were delighted to be associated with it. The project itself presented many technical and logistical problems from working at extreme heights in high winds and managing to protect the areas in a tropical climate from heavy rainfall. The reason for using a high value waterproofing system was to protect the electronic assets in the buildings associated with safely managing the airports control systems from the risks of water damage. Correct installation and verification through leak tests were paramount in confirming the system would work as designed.
