Introducing the CETCO range of Active Waterproofing Systems
 

Solco are the specialist partner of the Cetco range of Active Waterproofing Systems which includes the Voltex Bentonite system that utilises the unique, high-swelling properties of sodium bentonite. This is a clay of volcanic origin with the ability of swelling many times its dry volume when in contact with water. In a confined state this forms a dense, impenetrable gel, that completely locks water and vapour out.
