Synthesia Semtin, A.S. Repair and Restoration
Submitted by Gemite Products Inc.
A variety of repair materials, tailored to the degree of distress of the existing concrete and the chemical exposure, was used to repair and restore areas of this large chemical manufacturing facility in the Czech Republic. The existing polymer coatings had proven inadequate to provide protection. Micro-silica-modified mortars and concrete, fiber-reinforced materials, and polymer-modified cements were used to rebuild floors and walls, line containment structures, and provide negative-side waterproofing to walls below the level of the nearby Elbe River.
