Wolf in waterproofs dive under phase one of London Thameslink Programme

Approximately 2,000m2 of the Wolfin IB PADS certified membrane was supplied direct to the London site for the Yorkshire based Waterseal (W & S) Ltd in preparation to make modules on site prior to installation.

Due to possession and blockade working constraints, the specialist proposed the use of Wolfin IB to provide a waterproofing membrane to protect the structure. Throughout the pre-contract and installation process, Icopal/Wolfin offered technical support.

Wolfin IB is a homogenous thermoplastic waterproofing membrane that Icopal suggest is resistant to bitumen, flux and mineral oils, as well as kerosene and acids. It is UV, microbe and red algae resistant.

Grant Weston, construction Director at Waterseal (W & S), said: “The involvement of ourselves in the Bermondsey project was over a two-year period. The waterproofing was delivered during possessions and blockades throughout the duration of the project, with the membrane installation being overseen by Skanska and Network Rail.”
