GTM-16 Protection Sheet
GTM-16 is a high performance waterproofing protection sheet and slab vapor retarder developed for GEL-TECH SYSTEMS. It is also used to control radon, methane, sulphates and other soil contaminants. GTM-16 Protection Sheet is a reinforced composite sheet made with only high-grade virgin polyolefin resins. The manufacturing process for GTM-16 is a first melt, three layer, coextruded system combining 2 layers of U.V. stabilized polyethylene, a high strength cord grid with a non-woven, post-consumer recycled geo-textile backing laminated onto the LLDPE.
GTM-16 Protection Sheet is used in GEL-TECH SYSTEMS GTS-350 positive side and GTS-500 blind side waterproofing systems for above and below grade construction. GTM-16 is ideal for effective, permanent waterproofing.
GTM-16 is applied in both above grade and below grade applications. GTS-16 is suitable for new construction and repair. Applications include the following types of waterproofing: horizontal positive side waterproofing (GTS-350); vertical wall positive side waterproofing (GTS-350); and blind side waterproofing (GTS-500). Areas of application include: plaza decks; elevator pits; poured wall foundations; block wall foundations; brick wall foundations; granite/limestone foundations; split slab construction; diaphragm wall (blind side); and green roofs.
