Solar PV installations
The waterproofing task
Wind turbines suffer from a number of weak points that demand sustainable waterproofing. These points include the joints and the concrete base.
The applied concrete might be water-resistant but joints are subject to various loads and fatigue due to frost/freeze-thaw action, movements and vibration. This obviously results in cracks and damage to the concrete. Moisture penetrating through the concrete substrate poses a considerable risk to expensive technology.
Since it is applied as a liquid, KEMPEROL adapts to every substrate shape and is ideal for use on round concrete bases. Throughout Europe, several hundred wind turbines have been protected long-term thanks to liquid applied waterproofing.
Solar roof surface in Bamberg
Excerpt from press release: The archdiocese of Bamberg champions renewable energy
The demand for solar power continues to grow in Germany. Up and down the country solar panels are appearing on more and more roofs. However, to guarantee homeowners can relax and enjoy their solar yields without any concerns it is not just the price of the PV system that needs to be considered. While the choice of location is a decisive aspect, other factors also play a key role in ensuring the desired return on investment. Having to (partially) dismantle a solar PV installation in order to repair a leaky roof results in a considerable loss of profit.
