Protecting Civil Infrastructure & Road Marking
RPM BELGIUM VANDEX produces and supplies waterproofing, liquid and gas proof, protective and repair solutions for different civil infrastructure.
The main product range exists of liquid applied resins that after curing result into high performing plastics or polymers. They distinguish themselves to other waterproofing and protective solutions in the combination of: performance, durability, weathering resistance, low maintenance, cost-effectiveness, light weight and design flexibility, easiness of application.
Compared to building waterproofing and seamless floor solutions the systems to apply to civil infrastructure differ especially in the thickness of the membrane and/or the wearing layer thickness, and the aggregates to broad coast into the wearing layer. This as a result of the higher loads and conditions it is often subjected to.
In the civil infrastructure and road marking range some other well engineered products are also available with exceptional performances. There is the self-healing Dual Seal® Membrane that combines bentonite granulates with a HDPE membrane, the Alumanation® 301 steel coating, the VANDEX®-cementitious and crystalline cementitious range, the road marking and surface marking safety and decorative range for public spaces, roads, bridge coatings, and car parks.
For the waterproofing infrastructure, RPM BELGIUM VANDEX developed the PUMA technology, or a membrane based on PU-modified MMA. PUMA technology combines the flexibility and crack bridging of PU with the main properties that distinguish MMAs from conventional resin-based systems, such as fast curing and excellent workability even at very low temperatures, abrasion resistance, UV resistance and long life.
The PUMA membrane may or may not be combined with MMA layers, depending on the application and requirements. Even after application at -20 ° C, the PUMA membrane retains its superior crack-bridging properties and the system is fully hardened, rain-resistant, loadable and trafficable within the hour after application. This means that combined PUMA and MMA systems can be used throughout the year, the downtime or interruption of activities or the waiting time between consecutive phases is very small, and it is possible to start up quickly, which significantly reduces costs for users or owners. limited.
The PUMA systems are cold applied, avoiding time loss by heating products. As well manual application with simple tools can be used as spray application with the right spraying equipment. The curing times are adjustable to the ambient temperature and the conditions on the site.
The Systems are applicable to almost any surface, such as concrete, steel, metals, asphalt, wood, or composite materials, with excellent adhesion properties.
