New Bentonite-Based Waterproofing Released

TUESDAY, JULY 18, 2017

W.R. Meadows Inc. (Hampshire, Illinois) has released a new dual-layer waterproofing membrane designed for below-grade use.

The CLAY-TITE Bentonite Waterproofing Membrane consists of virgin HDPE, sodium bentonite and non-woven polypropylene. According to the company, the HDPE provides the first layer of waterproofing, while the bentonite’s self-healing capabilities “ensure puncture protection under hydrostatic conditions.” The additional polypropylene is said to protect the bentonite from direct shotcrete installation.

The product can be used in both vertical and horizontal installations, the company says, adding that it self-seals under hydrostatic environmental and can be installed in all weather conditions on green or damp surfaces.

“The addition of CLAY-TITE to our waterproofing line offers our customers a waterproofing option that is based on bentonite clay,” said Glenn Tench, director of marketing for W. R. Meadows, adding that the product is the first of its kind for the company.
