Important performances of ESWA products
Long life expectancy:
Based on long time experiences and well defined specialised raw materials the products are designed and controlled for a long proven life expectancy.
Due to the thermoplastic properties the products are easy to handle for manufacturers. Highly controlled welding equipment assures installation without problems on site.
Withstand natural attacks within life cycle:
Based on the performance of the thermoplastic products no hazardous substances are needed to withstand biological and chemical attacks from environment. Full resistance to roots is ensured.
Based on the mechanical performance including elongation, flexibility at low temperature and crack bridging ability, the resistance against pressured water or other building movements is excellent.
Special design, composition, inner layers, reinforcement and backings of ESWA products as well as the installation compliant with the application allows the product to fulfill nearly all specific requirements for civil engineering applications.
