Leakages through the expansion joints & walls of an aqueduct are a menace to the maintenance crew. The present repair methods require repeat repairs at short intervals. Dimple Chemicals & Services Pvt. Ltd. has provided a long-term solution to the problem through successful & cost-effective implementation of PICC technology. The PICC Technology materials provide greater bond strength between old and new concrete & the PICC mortar has very good abrasion resistance to water flowing through the aqueduct. Similarly, the low porosity of PICC eliminates vegetation growth. Dimple Chemicals has developed a special method for arresting seepage/leakage through Expansion Joints.
Photos given below are of the Tillari Aqueduct, Goa. These photos are illustrative of the extent of damage to the walls & expansion joints and the repairs done with PICC technology.
