Bentonite permanent waterproofing - Volclay
We have had multiple failures of bentonite based waterpoofing systems below the water table - in particular Volclay supplied by Allco.
The use of Volclay on blockwork as per Allco conflicts with the manufacturer CETCOs specifying documents.
THE USE OF VOLCLAY when used below the water table as a stand alone product DOES NOT COMPLY WITH BS 8102 2009 Code of Practice for protection of below ground structures against water from the ground.
Supercrete NZ and Superbuild NZ supplied autoclaved aerated concrete
We and others have had a terrible experience with Superbuild NZ Ltd and Supercrete NZ Ltd supplying faulty AAC panels.
The products sold to us by the the above company disintegrated within a year and had to be completely replaced at an approximate cost to Sparrow Construction of $160,000.
