Wykamol Kontract Geotex is typically used to isolate and protect the basement structure from the surrounding soil and relieve hydrostatic pressure by promoting the flow of ground water away from the face of the structure. Wykamol Kontract Geotex provides excellent protection from root penetration and can also increase the structures thermal insulation. Typical installations include external tanking, retaining walls, podium decks and green roof applications.
In most cases Geotex is designed to be used with Technoseal DPM as a primary foundation waterproof coating. In all cases, it is essential that Geotex is installed in conjunction with Aquadrain - a perforated ground drain acting as a conduit for removal of drained water (see separate data sheets).
