Can a TegraSeal waterproofing system be installed in a “salt water” environment?

Some contaminants in the water can limit the effectiveness of bentonite. We have several solutions to overcome this problem. TegraSeal had developed a new self-adhering bentonite waterproofing membrane that will not require mechanical fasteners. The advantage in saltwater/contaminated-water conditions is that there are not any nail holes. When the seams are taped, the HDPE will provide a monolithic membrane with bentonite as the backup. TegraTite CR Plus uses a polymer treated bentonite to seal in brackish/salt water conditions. In either case, the contaminated water would be tested and authorized by the manufacturer.
