This is a practical guide for you to learn all the details about the innovative system for waterproofing based on the union of geotextiles and bentonite. We will take a tour of bentonite geocomposites (GCL) to understand what they are, how they are used and what their main benefits are, as well as the installation process to be followed.
Bentonite is a very fine volcanic clay grain that is characterized by its capacity to swell: up to 16 times its volume when dry when hydrated by water. This quality, together with the resistance of the geotextiles, makes the bentonite geocomposite (GCL) an efficient waterproof membrane with a long durability.
