Often referred to as the ‘White Tank’ engineered waterproofing system, the RASCOtank system ensures the concrete acts as both the structure and the waterproofing.
The Newton RASCOtank System will provide a unique form of Type B structural waterproofing for any new concrete construction project occurring below-ground in the UK.
Newton and RASCOR’s design team will work with the client, the structural engineer, the architect and the contractor from the outset of a project to achieve the required waterproofing strategy.
With this approach, the Newton RASCOtank system provides the principal contractor and the client with savings on the financial and programming of the project and, as the system allows for unlimited pour sizes for the concrete floors and walls, maximum efficiency is also achieved.
A unique method allows Newton to control the locations of the inevitable cracks that occur in the concrete, by use of the patented RASCOtec crack inducers.
Deliberately placed at intervals within your concrete pour, the inducers allow for significantly bigger pour sizes, remove the need for the traditional chequer board method, and allow for unlimited concreting and any depth of floor or wall.
Ruben Schmid, Executive Director at RASCOR International, commented: “Newton are the perfect match to RASCOR. Each company has vast knowledge and experience, and is an expert in their respective areas of waterproofing.
“This new partnership means that Newton and RASCOR will be able to offer the best waterproofing solution in any combination on any project for our UK clients, and will put us into a leading position in the UK market.”
The exclusive partnership with RASCOR, an international group with more than half a century’s worth of experience in the design, manufacture, installation and warranty of Type B waterproofing for concrete structures all over the world, marks the beginning of a powerful new chapter in concrete waterproofing for the family-run business, based in Tonbridge, Kent.
Warren Muschialli, Newton Waterproofing’s MD, commented: “RASCOR are pioneers in Type B waterproofing and we are absolutely delighted to be their exclusive partner providing the Newton RASCOtank system in the UK.”
“As the UK’s oldest independent designers and suppliers of guaranteed waterproofing systems for all structures, with 170 years of industry experience and expertise, we are their perfect partner.”
