Quadex GeoKrete® Geopolymer slaagt voor cruciale Europese test op resistentie tegen biogene zuuraantasting bij producten voor rioolherstel of -renovatie

HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Quadex, LLC maakt bekend dat GeoKrete Geopolymer voldoet aan de strengste Europese eisen voor corrosieresistentie, WXX4, zoals gedefinieerd in DIN 19573: Specie voor de bouw en het herstel van afvoerwegen en riolen buiten gebouwen.

Het product slaagde voor een test die is ontwikkeld door de Hamburgse vereniging voor stedelijke waterafvoer. De proef garandeert dat herstel- en renovatieproducten op minerale basis voldoen aan de normen voor resistentie tegen biogene zuuraantasting. “Vroeger was de aanname dat alle minerale materialen min of meer verwoest worden door zwavelzuur en slechts tijdelijk resistent zijn tegen corrosie bij een pH-waarde van 3,5 of meer”, zei Neil Wisener, president van Quadex LLC, een van de Vortex Companies. “Dat GeoKrete voldoet aan alle vereisten van de DIN 19573-standaard voor WXX4, de strengste normen voor zuurteresistentie, is niet alleen geweldig nieuws voor ons, maar ook voor de rioolherstelsector.”


Quadex GeoKrete® Geopolymer Passes Critical European Biogenic Acid Corrosion Test for Products Used in Repair or Renovation of Sewer Infrastructure

HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Quadex, LLC recently announced that its GeoKrete Geopolymer meets the most demanding European test standard for corrosion resistance, WXX4, as defined by DIN 19573: Mortar for Construction and Rehabilitation of Drains and Sewers Outside Buildings.

This test was created by the Hamburg Society for urban drainage to ensure mineral based repair and renovation products meet a minimum standard of resistance for biogenic acid corrosion. “Historically the assumption has been that all mineral based materials get more or less destroyed by sulfuric acid and are only permanently resistant to corrosion in a pH range of 3.5 or greater,” stated Neil Wisener, President of Quadex LLC, and one of the Vortex Companies. “Having GeoKrete meet all requirements of the DIN 19573 standard for WXX4, which is the highest acid resistance category, is not only great news for us, but great for the sewer rehabilitation industry as well.”

In order to comply with DIN 19573, in all testing phases, GeoKrete possessed a relative residual compressive strength greater than 55% for pH0, and greater than 75% for pH1. “We’re excited to have a geopolymer product that will serve the demanding sewer rehabilitation needs in Europe,” added Mr. Wisener. “Effective sulfuric acid resistant solutions are hard to come by, and now we are in position to make GeoKrete available abroad.”

“The results of this test allow us to continue our expansion into the European and International markets,” stated Mike Vellano, CEO of the Vortex Companies. “We are anxious to meet with qualified contractors interested in adding GeoKrete to their product and solution offering.” GeoKrete will be on display at the Quadex booth at IFAT in May 2018. GeoKrete is used for the repair and rehabilitation of manholes, large diameter pipes and other sewer infrastructure requiring exceptional structural and corrosion protection.
