CONCRETE Magazine explains why Zemdrain® CPF liner was applied to provide best wave impact & resistance!
Successfully raising and reshaping a historic coastal mass concrete wall in St. Aubin's Bay, Jersey, posed initial challenges for the team involved.
Zemdrain® controlled permeability formwork (CPF) liner, from MAX FRANK, was applied to provide enhanced, long-term concrete durability to the concrete capping beam:
"In order to provide the new concrete capping beam with the best wave impact and abrasion resistance - required because the waves include shingle, floating debris and other abrasive materials - a Zemdrain fabric was applied to the steel shutter on the seaward face of the wall".

Zemdrain® improves the concrete’s ability to resist chemical attack by reducing the water-cement ratio and surface porosity, which limits the depth of chloride ion penetration into the cover zone and prevents induced corrosion.
