Consolidation and waterproofing
Soluble silicates have been used successfully for the soil stabilisation and water control in the course of excavations and tunneling projects and in other geotechnical
applications for over 50 years.
Silicate mixtures offer several advantages
Safety and ease of use
Adaptability on a wide range of applications
The consolidation process is based on the formation of a sodium silicate silicon gel and an adequate reagent that aggregates the soil particles that must support heavy loads or that are permeable to water, at the opening of tunnels, arcades, foundations, sealings against underground infiltration and road construction.
Prochin Italia supplies all the elements of the silicate-based mixtures.
