Extending the Service Life4

Wat Pra Dammakaya Animation - Spiritual Centre, Patumtani


As an important part of the Dhamakaya Temple complex, a pre-requisite for this building was to be water tight, dust free, and have ultra low maintenance costs. The monks and novices working here  are educated and  trained in modern disciplines, with emphasis on high tech IT equipment - hence the stringent design requirments.

Xypex products - Admixture, Coating and dry pac systems were used provide the low maintenance and water proofing aspects of the design requirements. Over 400 kg of crack repair products were used to remediate the water tanks and roof slab before the areas were treated with Xypex Concentrate to waterproof the structure. An area in excess of 700m2 was succesfully treated.
