WATERTIGHT CURTAIN IN THE AIGUAMOIX DAM /IN SPANISH/

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A ROCK-FILL DAM IN SPAIN, A CURTAIN MADE FROM A NYLON-NEOPRENE FABRIC COVERED WITH A BITUMEN- RUBBER MIXTURE WAS USED FOR WATERPROOFING PURPOSES. THIS TECHNIQUE PRESENTS THE FOLLOWING ADVANTAGES: HOMOGENEITY, STRENGTH, INCREASED IMPERMEABILITY AND LIFETIME, AND EASE OF APPLICATION (NO SPECIAL MECHANICAL EQUIPMENT IS REQUIRED EVEN UNDER UNFAVORABLE WEATHER CONDITIONS). /TRRL/
