NAUE’S WATERPROOFING RANGE COMPRISES OF THE BENTOFIX® BFG & BENTOFIX® X PRODUCTS
BENTOFIX® BFG 5000 is a robust, weather resistant product which makes full use of the physical and mechanical properties of its component products.
In addition to the excellent sealing properties of the sodium bentonite, a high puncture resistance and protection against mechanical damage occurring during installation on site are provided by the composite geotextiles.The flexibility of the geotextiles allows BENTOFIX® BFG5000 to be used with almost all types of reinforced concrete profiles, ensuring a perfect seal to all edgesand hollow spaces.
BENTOFIX® BFG 5000 is ideally suited for waterproofing applications since the outer layer of the non-woven geotextile is impregnated with an additional layer of sodium bentonite over its entire surface area. The product is installed with the non woven geotextile butting the concrete element. This gives continuity and an intimate contact over the entire area where the bentonite meets the surface of the reinforced concrete structure.
Once hydrated, the sodium bentonite impregnated into the outer surface of the non-woven geotextile swells into small cracks or imperfections,sealing them from the ingress of water. Also, this ensures that all overlaps of the BENTOFIX® BFG 5000 are sealed, even if panels are cut to size or trimmed to fit around protrusions. A special manufacturing process allows the stable encapsulation of bentonite powder inside the non-woven pores.
BENTOFIX® X clay liners are a new line of needle-punched, reinforced composites that combine two durable geotextile outer layers and a uniform core of high-swelling powder sodium bentonite clay, with an additional polyethylene extrusion-coated barrier. This forms a uniform, multi directional, shear-resistant, hydraulic, multi-component barrier with self-sealing and re-healing characteristics. It is primarily used for Radon, gas and greater heads of water.
BENTOFIX® BFG and X types are manufactured by NAUE underthe ISO 9001:2008 quality control regime.Under thisscheme, all our manufacturing plants and products aresubject to strict monitoring by internaland externalbodies.
BENTOFIX® BFG and X types are formally recognised and approved as a waterproofing systems with BBA Certification.
