TRITON CONSERVATION SYSTEMS - CONCRERTE AND MASONARY WATERPROOFING

Keywords: waterproofing, Damp Proof, Conservation Systems

Triton TT55 Tanking Slurry:
TCS have been applying TT55 for the last 15 years and we believe it is one of the best Waterproof Slurries on the market. It is ideal for walls and floors and provides a highly effective damp proof membrane for brickwork, block work and stonework.

We also apply it concrete substrates but we prefer to recommend another of our products - TT Super where concrete substrates are to be waterproofied.

For wall applications we prefer to sandwich TT55 between sand/cement render coats after ensuring that special attention has been given to wall and wall/floor junctions by correct surface preparation and applying our non shrink grout – Triton Fillet Seal.

Triton TT Super/Triton TT Super (White) Concrete waterproofing treatment:

TT Super is unique in the way it attacks moisture ingress. When we apply it as a surface applied system it waterproofs and protects concrete in depth in basements/retaining walls, concrete slabs (floor/roof/balcony), construction joints, water retaining structures, swimming pools, reservoirs, sewage treatment plants, channels and potable water tanks.

The active chemicals in TT Super combine with the free lime and moisture present in the capillary track to form insoluble crystals which block capillaries and minor shrinkage cracks to prevent any further water ingress (even under pressure). However the product still allows the passage of water vapour through the structure, allowing the concrete to ‘breathe’. It also protects concrete against seawater, aggressive ground water and certain chemical solutions.

We can give a finish coat in TT Super white if required.

Triton TT Waterstop for emergency control of water under pressure:

When we are working on large developments where a pre-formed Waterstop is required we can provide and install a product which swells up to 700% when in contact with water. We insist that it is fully encapsulated by poured concrete which will allow TT Waterstop to form a seal against concrete surfaces resisting hydrostatic pressure and stopping water from entering the sub-structures.

Its service life is indefinite with a permanent water tight function and excellent resistance to acid and alkaline conditions. The built in delay system means Waterstop will activate approximately two days after constant exposure to water and will withstand up to a 40 metre head of pressure.

Triton TT Swell Mastic

Again when we are involved in projects with significant pours of concrete we can provide a gun applied, one-component hydro-reactive expansion sealant for waterproofing joints in concrete. It will swell up to 100% when in contact with water to create a durable Waterstop with long lasting adhesive and hydro-swelling properties. In contact with sea water, Triton Swell Mastic will expand between 50% and 70%. Contact our sales office for further information or to arrange a site visit.

TRITON CONSERVATION SYSTEMS - GREEN ROOFS AND ROOF GARDENS

TCS can create a waterproof system with drainage and storage of moisture all included in a controlled system that provides a root barrier and filtration to ensure no silting occurs. In today?s society green roofs both pitched and horizontal are becoming increasingly popular with garden designers, architects and the general public. Finally here is a view of a pitched roof and a more unusual tennis court in France.

TRITON CONSERVATION SYSTEMS - DAMP PROOFING & TIMBER TREATMENTS

At Triton Conservation Systems we have been involved in remedial damp and timber works for many years and can offer probably the most comprehensive range of Damp proofing systems and Timber Treatments that are currently available. TCS are able to accurately assess the amount of moisture in masonry and timber by the use of either Moisture meters and/or Calcium Carbide Speedy Meter tests.

TRITON CONSERVATION SYSTEMS - FLOORING VAPOUR PROOF MEMBRANES

Again a solvent free, two part epoxy resin coating, typically used as a surface damp proof membrane and a water vapour suppressant which is well suited for use as a water and water proof barrier, beneath raised access floors, in plant rooms and bunded areas.

TRITON CONSERVATION SYSTEMS - INTERNAL WATERPROOFING APPLICATION

Although TCS will always choose the best combined system of all our product range to ensure a completely successfully designed water proofing system in most instances we will recommend a cavity drained membrane system complete with associated drainage either gravity or pump driven.

TRITON CONSERVATION SYSTEMS - CONDENSATION PROBLEMS

Many properties suffer with condensation so we have collated a few tips on how to avoid the problem If these do not work then we can offer the following products to help eradicate the smells and staining that is associated with condensation. Positive air Pressure units create continual air movement which does not allow moisture laiden air to stay still long enough for the moisture to convert from vapour back to liquid.

TRITON CONSERVATION SYSTEMS - EXTERNAL WATERPROOFING

It works as the protection and drainage layer on mezzanine floors and raised walkways where water needs to be controlled and drained away in a controlled manner. Triton double drain is a membrane system designed specifically for external use which protects underlying primary membranes as well.
