COMBI-SEAL comprises of PREMCRETE MAXIPRUFE PLUS and PREMCRETE HYDROPRUFE 9000 cross laminated to produce a lightweight pre-applied membrane which will resist ground gases and water. The membrane utilises PREMCRETE APAN™ technology to produce an active membrane which will self-heal and effectively resist water pressure in the event of minor punctures or defects. The polyethylene component is reinforced with an aluminium core to restrict gas vapour transmission to less than 40ml/day/M² in accordance with BS 8485:2015. The active nature of the membrane secures the integrity of the membrane whilst the textured profile of the membrane ensures an integral bond to the structure to which it is applied. COMBI-SEAL fully complies with BS 8485:2015 for the protection against ground gases including carbon dioxide, radon and methane. It also complies with BS 8102:2009 for the protection of substructures against ground water.
COMBI-SEAL is used as a pre-applied gas-resistant waterproofing membrane for basement construction, lift pits, concrete retaining walls and other structures which extend below ground where resistance to both ground gas and water is required. COMBI-SEAL may also be used to protect ground floor slabs particularly where a good mechanical bond is required to the underside of the concrete slab or where a clay heave-board has been installed. COMBI-SEAL achieves 2 points when correctly installed in accordance with Table 7 of BS 8485:2015.
