WATERPROOFING OF THE AUBER STATION BY MEANS OF EPOXY RESINS

EXECUTION DE L'ETANCHEITE A LA STATION AUBER AU MOGEN DE RESINES EPOXYDES

One of the main problems during the construction of the Auber underground station was that of the adhesion of the waterproofing lining to the walls. A continuous resin film with high mechanical strength was used. A cement coating was also necessary to protect the resin coating and to be used as a support for later finishing processes (tiles, paint, etc). Because of the high level of humidity in the tunnel, polyester and polyurethane could not be utilized. The waterproofing of the tunnel proceeded as follows : (1) treatment of joints by means of injection; (2) treatment of isolated points and cleaning of the surface; (3) application of two coats of resin on dried surfaces; (4) application of cement coating. /TRRL/
