Sealing a mountain lake in the Alps with InnoElast® Type 2

In the course of the last 2 years, an interesting project was realized in a wonderful environment. Mr Oggier from Conthey in Switzerland wanted to embellish the grounds of his mountain hut, which lies between Lake Geneva and the Matterhorn. He had the idea of creating a small mountain lake.

To cover the ground, he had old rubber conveyor belts at his disposal. When he asked how he could successfully join the joints of the strips together and seal this area against pressing water at the same time, he came across InnoElast® Type 2. He thus found the perfect solution for his project.

After cleaning the conveyor belts, he was able to start his work despite the low temperatures in the first months of 2020, using the sealing product to bond and seal the rubber. As a result, Mr. Oggier was able to fortify and secure the edges of the lake, so that after filling the pit, the final result of the mountain lake was not long in coming. The special thing is that he was able to carry out the whole project on his own without much previous experience and without having to call on the help of professional service providers.
