Fix dam leaks, dam fast!
Save water & prevent pollution
Leaking tailings dams are potential source of contaminants into downstream environments, causing ecological and health impacts, as well leading to fines for dam owners and operators.
GRT:Dam Sealer is a specifically formulated, complex matrix of soluble and insoluble polymers designed to find and seal leaks in tailings and water storage dams. Following the currents caused by the leaks, the product finds problem areas- plugging cracks and sealing fault lines. The hydrostatic pressure of the water in the dams, also assists in holding GRT: Dam Sealer in place – stopping leaks and preventing new ones!
Although targeted towards fixing existing dams, GRT: Dam Sealer can also be integrated into the design of new dams, where high quality construction materials are difficult or costly to source.
If you know where your dam is leaking, higher concentrations can be applied to this area. However, to ensure the best outcome is achieved, it is still recommended to apply to the entire dam’s surface.
GRT: Dam Sealer has been designed and manufactured to remain stable in the soil profile, providing a long-term solution to your problem.
Effective and Efficient
GRT: Dam Sealer is designed to bind elements within dam linings, swelling to seal the faults!
The key industries benefiting from this technology are:
- Mining – Tailings dams
- Resources – stop leakage in “turkey nest” dams
- Rural Water Storage – irrigation and stock watering
GRT also supplies manual and automated spreaders to assist in both the application of the product and the accuracy of spread.
- Typically treatment rate is 100 grams per square metre
- GRT: Dam Sealer blocks the pore spaces, integrating with the soil and creating a barrier.
- It can also be applied to seeping caused by porous features in the substrate or due to the use of poorer, locally available construction materials.
- Safe: No adverse effects on plants, fish, pets or livestock
- Easy application broadcast on the water surface – use a grid pattern to ensure even distribution
- Repairs cracks and fault lines by binding to elements within the soil and swelling to reduce faults.
- Robust product characteristics ensure that it provides a long term fix to your problems
- Cost benefits – repair existing dams without costly design and civil works
- Environmental – prevents the release of contaminants into downstream waterways.
GRT: Dam Sealer is manufactured to
ISO9001 standards and has been comprehensively reviewed by leading independent testing institutions and major companies worldwide.
Polymer Modified Cement
Polymer modified cement created by Global Road Technology is a combination of cementitious binder, GRT polymer, water and granular material. These components are mixed together and compacted in the early stages of the hydration process to form a pavement layer that is subsequently cured.
Effective soil binder & erosion control
GRT-ENVIRO SOIL BINDER & EROSION CONTROL is an organic soil conditioner based on a water-soluble polymer. This product can be added to irrigation water to reduce soil erosion by agglomerating fine particles that otherwise would be carried away by surface water runoff.
Counter Terrorism Landmine Clearance Technology
An expeditionary product with unique morphology, GRT1000 aids in the detection of sub-surface threats, such as landmines. Invisible to the naked eye, this patented state-of-the-art solution warns armed forces when roads and tracks have been disturbed.
Aerial Deployed Dust Control
An aerial deployed, military grade dust control solution, GRT2000 establishes dust free temporary landing zones in the operational theatre within minutes. Not relying on ground based combat engineers, it can be delivered almost anywhere, mitigating brownouts and improving safety.
Self Healing Runways
A novel biomimetic formulation, GRT3000 is designed to facilitate rapid construction of tactical and emergency self-healing runways in the operational theatre. Providing substantial increases in compression as well as tensile strength, GRT3000 runways are ultrathin and failure resilience.
(Black) Dust Control Polymer Sealant
Engineered to combat the problems of fugitive dust and soil stabilization on unpaved roads, GRT8000 compounds with each application to bind dust particles together. Preventing dust from becoming airborne, overtime applications can be reduced and eventually stopped.
(Black) Polymer Soil Stabilization
GRT’s most advanced polymer soil stabilization product, GRT9000 is engineered for use in the construction of high-quality and cost-effective pavements. Mitigating surface degradation, GRT9000 bonds soil or pavement particles together, improving compressive strengths, high tensile resilience and water impermeability.
