Turn your new below-ground, concrete structure into a guaranteed form of waterproofing protection using the Newton RASCOtank System, which also delivers significant time and cost savings compared to traditional concrete construction methods.
Type B Waterproofing – British Standard 8102:2009
British Standard 8102:2009 defines ‘Type B’ waterproofing as designing the structure itself to be integrally waterproof and the primary resistance to water ingress.
Nothing provides better primary resistance to water than a well designed and well placed reinforced concrete structure, designed in accordance with BS EN 1992 with sufficient steel reinforcement to limit flexural and sectional cracking to produce watertight concrete elements.
The use of the RASCOtank engineered waterproofing system provides comprehensive Type B waterproofing in compliance with BS 8102:2009, and on its own is capable of delivering a ‘Grade 2’ basement as per Table 1 of the British Standard.
For more robust waterproofing protection, the Newton RASCOtank System can be combined with our ‘Type A’ solutions Newton HydroBond or Newton HydroSeal, and/or our ‘Type C’ Newton CDM System, as shown in the image to the right.
The Newton RASCOtank System
The Newton RASCOtank System is a unique and patented form of Type B concrete structural waterproofing in the UK, born out of an exclusive partnership between Newton Waterproofing Systems and RASCOR International.
By placing RASCOtec crack inducers at deliberate intervals within the concrete pour, the system allows for bigger pours, unlimited concreting and any depth of floor or wall.
Our staff are able to provide guidance for projects of all sizes, whether you require some general advice about damp or waterproofing, or support with technical drawings and specifications.
