With regards to the product range, Volteco distinguishes itself with a long experience as manufacturer of high performance elastic membranes. This technology has been strongly developed since early ’90s through the internal R&D department to obtain a comprehensive range of products for different application fields, and with different levels of performance within each field.
Volteco waterproofing systems
They are completed by waterproof mortars, repair mortars, breathable plasters, joints, chemical barriers, bentonite liners and a full set of accessories to allow a perfect application. All these are also designed and manufactured according to the best standards in order to deliver system-solutions to its customers.
A proven experience in rising damp treatment, crack repair solutions and effective waterproofing membranes for below ground rooms, allows them to create new water-resistant standards in the construction field. To ensure safety and building retention is their essence and main activity.
Pre and post-casting waterproof membrane with high hydro-reactive properties: this is AMPHIBIA, the brand-new product just launched by Volteco. Outcome of a long work and a thorough study started in 2006 from the idea of developing hydrophilic polymers, thanks also to cooperation with some Universities and partnership with international research institutes and industrial specialists, AMPHIBIA leads to reality an innovative concept of waterproofing.
This hydro-reactive membrane, made with several layer with differentiated functionality, when in contact with water allows at the different layers to swell differently thereby obtaining a complete waterproofing of the underground structures.
Coming to details the first layer – Tight Barrier – is fully watertight and represents the first barrier; the second layer – Core – is a safety super-expanding, self-sealing and self-healing layer that in case of breaches seals the fastening nail or the passing body; the third layer – Active Barrier – is a hydroreactive, expansion-controlled, for self-sealing of overlaps and the fourth layer – Grip – is a special textile designed to be fasten to concrete.
In this way the structure of the membrane consists of a continuous extruded multilayer polymeric sheet with different functions. The energy inside the core of the membrane, in presence of water infiltration, performs a continuous and active waterproofing pressure keeping the structure dry.
AMPHIBIA is available in 2 versions: AMPHIBIA 3000 (POST-CAST) and AMPHIBIA 3000 GRIP (PRECAST) and both are available in double width: 90cm or 180cm. The Pre-cast version is self-gripping to concrete thanks to a non-woven textile and guarantees an exceptional mechanical adhesion of the membrane to the structure.
