Innovative waterproofing systems for water industry

SpecialChem / Mar 18, 2006

The UK firm DRC polymers has developed and patented an innovative waterproofing system for the water industry. This system namely Hylam IQ is based on a lamination of flexible polypropylene (PP) blend and an electrically conductive polypropylene geotextile. This “ clever ” system allows to electronically detect and pinpoints leaks thanks to the incorporation of sensors that continuously monitor the membrane. Moreover It is a cheaper alternative to conventional systems. Expected applications are for instance reservoirs and tanks.
