Pondseal Introductory Product Presentation 04 28 11 General Presentation

  1. 1. smAn Introduction to AquaBlok : ® A Unique, Patented & Highly Versatile Bentonite-Stone Composite
  2. 2. Objectives Introduce AquaBlok – the original invention, its history, and the evolution of associated products Discuss key technical advantages – focusing particularly on VERSATILITY Explore various application scenarios – relating primarily to sealing/containment Field preliminary questions
  3. 3. BENTONITE: 101 Not Your Average Clay Naturally Occurring – weathering volcanic ash - composed mostly of montmorillonite - classified by dominant elements (e.g. Na and Ca) Known for Swell - ionic interaction between water and mineralogy create “shingle effect” when exposed to water Recognized for Low Permeability - used for generations in sealing and water proofing applications in a broad range of commercial and environmental settings
  4. 4. BENTONITE: 101 Swell + Compaction = Low Permeability powdered bentonite with adhesive binder solid aggregate core + =sodium bentonite crushed limestone AquaBlok® bentonite-stone powder composite particle
  5. 5. Composite Particle System +PONDSEAL TM ORGANOCLAYHoleBlok TM SALTWATER
  6. 6. PONDSEAL TM Material Compositionsodium bentonite and adhesive binderexpands when hydrated average particle 1/4 - 3/8” (dry)solid aggregate (limestone) core not to scale
  7. 7. PONDSEAL PONDSEAL 1 min post time 24 hr post hydration hydration
  8. 8. PONDSEAL TM Values & Technical Advantages Technically Effective – extreme low permeability a result of reliable swell and self-compaction Offers Targeted Placement – even through water - will not drift or dissipate, minimal dusting Easy to Handle – behaves much like stone aggregate - installed by hand or using a broad range of standard construction equipment - no need to mechanically compact the material Durable - Self-healing (even through drying and re-hydration) - Self-supported (thanks to internal aggregate core)
  9. 9. PONDSEAL TM Values & Advantages, cont . . . Eco-friendly – comprised entirely of earthen ingredients - Does not detrimentally alter water chemistry - Evaluated by EPA in projects throughout US & beyond Aesthetically Pleasing – looks like natural clay Adds Safety – reduces exposure and manual labor Versatile – available in two convenient package sizes to address a broad range of technical challenges in and around aquatic environments THINK “NATURE’S DUCT TAPE” . . .

  15. 15. PONDSEAL TM Applications & UsageVertical Barrier Trench Construction
  16. 16. PONDSEAL TM Application Rates Blanket Application Examples – (Typical application target: 0.75” – 1.5” dry thickness) 5-lbs./ft2 @ 0.75” dry thickness (500-lbs./100 ft2) 6.9-lbs./ft2 @ 1.0” dry thickness (690-lbs./100 ft2) 10-lbs./ft2 @ 1.5” dry thickness (1,000-lbs./100 ft2)Vertical Barrier Trench Application Examples – (Assume 12” of surface soil backfill) Trench Dimension: 0.5’W x 6’D x 25’L = 5,200-lbs. Trench Dimension: 1’W x 8’D x 25’L = 14,525-lbs.*** Bulk density of dry material = ~85 lbs./ft3 ***

  21. 21. PONDSEAL TM Applications & UsageTorn/Compromised Synthetic Liner
  22. 22. PONDSEAL TM Applications & UsageRepairing/Discouraging Animal Damage
  23. 23. Geotechnical Applications Sink Holes
  24. 24. Geotechnical ApplicationsAnti Seep Collars & Trench Dams
  25. 25. Trench Dam Application Rates W Examples: 3’L x 1’W x 3’H = 810-lbs* 5’L x 1’W x 5’H = 2,250-lbs* L * Less volume occupied by pipe, example: 10’L x 1.5’W x 8’H dam with 36” pipe Hbedding = 120 ft3 (trench dam) – 10.6 ft3 (pipe) = 10,800-lbs – 950-lbs = 9,850-lbs AquaBlok *** Bulk density of dry material = 85-90 lbs./ft3 ***
  26. 26. Other Geotechnical Applications Wastewater Lagoon Linings/2° Containment Landfill Applications Gas Pipe Sealing Stream Bank Stabilization Manhole Spacers/Risers
