Owner: Carlton University
Contractor: Adseal Services, Inc.
Products: Cem-Kote Flex ST, Reinforcing Fabric HD, Gem-Plast TC, Fibre-Patch OV
Objective: Waterproofing of concrete water tanks at the Carlton University, STEM Complex.

The concrete surface was cleaned using 35 MPa (5,000 psi) high-pressure water, and leveled with Gem-Plast TC. The  corner coves were formed using Fibre-Patch  OV and reinforced  with a strip Reinforcing Fabric HD and Cem-Kote Flex ST.

Drying shrinkage cracks were treated using Cem-Kote Flex ST, with Reinforcing Fabric HD.

Cem-Kote Flex ST waterproofing was spray and brush applied to achieve a pinhole free continuous membrane to assure a long-term performance.
