Sealing Systems

FAMA develops the shape of its profiles through intensive use of virtualization (Marc), which allows the profile to be designed and its characteristics determined, reducing the time of production.

As seen, the gasket exhibits excellent compressive reaction properties and a good level of stability, which, based on experience, is a necessary condition for good hydraulic sealing performance.

FAMA has supplied anchored gaskets in many large works for several hundred kilometers of tunnels.

Strengths of the FAMA Gasket

1

Integration systems to the formwork that facilitate and speed up the installation phase and ensure that the gasket remains in place

2

Third-generation internal design that allows gasket compression through meniscus elongation

3

Concrete anchoring system that is currently the best available in terms of resistance to tearing

FAMA Technology for SOFT Corner

FAMA has designed, certified, manufactured and successfully used Soft Corner to minimize loads and preserve segment corners from breaking.
All FAMA corners are produced with innovative technologies and automations and strictly conform to the segment geometry for better sealing.
