Protecting Living Spaces from Radon

Protecting Living Spaces from Radon

According to the World Health Organization, radon is the second biggest factor of lung and bronchial diseases. People with weakened immune systems are most vulnerable. Even in favourable living environments, radon is the reason of 80 per cent of one’s yearly radiation dose from terrestrial sources and 50 per cent of the radiation dose from all natural sources.

Radon is an alpha radioactive gas which comes out of the ground and easily goes through any construction materials: cement, concrete, bricks, gypsum, paint, coatings etc. The radon concentration is especially high in the regions situated near tectonic fault lines and uranium mines.

To prevent radon coming into living spaces and underground constructions, we’ve developed a special polymeric compound with a catalyst. It penetrates for 5-15 cm into any construction material, fills micropores, polymerises inside them and almost completely prevents radon entering the building (the diffusion coefficient decreases 200-400-fold). To protect buildings from radon, it is enough to apply our polymeric compound to floors, walls and ceilings of the basement only.
