GDA Actitex Waterproofing System

GDA ActiTex is an active waterproofing membrane of high strength geotextiles encapsulating a sodium bentonite layer. Using a non-woven & woven geotextile which are needle punched together, the layer of sodium bentonite is retained within a strong, yet pliable membrane. All surface of the material is covered with 0.2 mm polymeric membrane. GDA ActiTex works by forming a low permeability membrane when in contact with water. Once wetted unconfined sodium bentonite can swell up to 15 times its dry volume. ActiTex is designed to allow small worms of sodium bentonite to pass through into the concrete sealing any small cracks caused by ground settlement, concrete shrinkage. The geotextile fibers are encapsulated into the surface of newly poured concrete forming a tenacious mechanical bond, eliminating the risk of water tracking. The swelling abilities allow ActiTex to selfheal small tears or penetrations

Applications:
• Below ground structures wall & beneath slab
• Property line construction- secant, contiguous piles,steel sheet piling, permanent, shuttering, stabilized earth retention walls, king post walls.
• Void formers, compacted ground, insulation, clay heave board, etc.
• Tunnels, earth covered roofs
• Structures under continuous or intermittent hydrostatic pressure

Advantages:
• BDA Kiwa Agrément® BAB 18-060/01/A
• Active self-healing properties.
• Mechanical bond, eliminating water tracking.
• Conformable & pliable
• Robust membrane & Ease of repair
• All weather application, mechanical fix

Limitiations:
• ActiTex is designed to be used in confinement.
• ActiTex is designed for minimum 150mm concrete slabs & requires
confinement and a minimum 75mm cover to all sides.
• No standing/running water – Proper water management should be
adopted before application
• In conditions where salt-water, sever ground water chemical
contamination exists or is expected consult manufacture for approval.
