Tainionkoski Bridge, Imatra, Finland

Waterproofing critical infrastructure in harsh conditions, while keeping project time to a minimum.

CWS waterproofing technology was chosen to protect this Finnish bridge, in order to extend its future life. 

Both CWS100 and CWS Admix give protection to concrete, by preventing the ingress of water and chlorides into the matrix. 

Actually, this was a repair to an existing bridge and hence the speed of application was important, because it is not possible to close the bridge for long periods.

The bridge crosses the Vuoski river in a scenic area of eastern Finland and because CWS products are eco-friendly they were considered ideal for this environment.
