Wat Phra Dhammakaya Temple was established in 1970 as a home for the Dhammakaya Movement in Thailand. The temple was developed to be an international center for the study of meditation.
Since the 1970s the Dhammakaya Movement has grown significantly to where some gatherings at the temple were totally over 100,000 attendees. The swelling congregation necessitated the need for new, larger facilities.
The new temple needed waterproofing for water and wastewater treatment tanks and the foundation. The development team wanted a long-term guaranteed, surface-applied solution that would increase durability and reduce costs.
CLPI Co., Ltd, Kryton’s Thailand distributor, suggested Kryton’s Krystol T1 surface-applied waterproofing solution for the project. The developers compared several surface-applied systems and selected Krystol T1 because of the long-term benefits, including Krystol T1’s ability to self-seal minor cracks and its resistance to surface wear and abrasion.
Krystol T1 was used to waterproof the 54,796 square meters (65,755 square yards) of basement, foundation and watertanks.
