Oriental Yuhong provides high-qualitywaterproofing system services for Beijing's newairport, currently under construction.
Beijing's newairport, a super-large international air transport hub, was listed in "The Guardian" as a megastructure wonder. It willhave a total area of 41,000 mu (equivalent to 63 Tiananmen Squares) and atotal investment of about 11.67 billion USD, fourrunways, a tarmac with 150 passenger aircraftparking bays and a 700,000-square-meter terminal area. After completion, it will accommodate 72 million passengers per year and is designed for further expansion to accommodate100 million passengers. It will be the world's largest airport and the singlelargest airport terminal.
Oriental Yuhong Waterproof Technology Co., Ltd. was involved in the projectsince the beginning, providing high quality waterproofing system services and high-quality waterproofmaterials for this world-famous super project. The scope of services includes the Terminal Area's "five fingers gallery", service building, parkingbuilding and the flight zones.
The waterproofing project in the new airport project is difficult, and the quality of the Oriental Yuhongproject was tested by the flood season's heavyrainfall.
In June, Beijing entered the flood season,with the heavy rainfall accounting for about 85%of the annual precipitation. The roof of the newairport had not been tested for waterproofingsince it was built at the end of 2017, andthere were concerns about whether the project could withstand the rainfall. The person in charge of the construction project responded that theroof system in the construction uses the Oriental Yuhong ThermoplasticPolyolefin (TPO) waterproof membrane, which can completely handle bad weather. This proved to be true as the roof remained unfazed by therainfall, and the excellent quality of Oriental Yuhong's products won praise from the customers.
Li Jianjun, chief engineer of Oriental YuhongTPO, said, "The products of our company are usedin many sensitive sections of the new airportproject, of which the TPO waterproof membrane isthe most used. This isbecause TPO waterproof membrane joints are welded using hot wind, and the joints have high peelingstrength. It is applied to the roof of corridors and the main terminal building and laid under the metal roofing board. It canwithstand various types of abnormal environments and has the advantage of aging resistance. We have provided construction and professionalwaterproofing design services for this world-famous project."
