WATERSTOP SYSTEM

A waterstop is considered an element of a concrete structure, that is intended to prevent the passages of fluids (such as water) when embedded in and running continuously through concrete joints. Waterstops are commonly being grouped in two distinct categories. Waterstops for joints without any movement of the adjoint concrete sections (construction cold joints) and also the other one are waterstops for joints with movement of the adjoint concrete sections (dilation joints).

Waterstops are normally being manufactured from a variety of materials depending on the functionality and their intended use. Waterstop plays a critical role in the integrity of concrete structures. It provides a fluid-tight diaphragm when it is being embedded in and running through concrete joints.

Rubber waterstop, made out from quality SBR (styrene butadiene rubber), neoprene rubber or natural rubber, is basically one of the widest types for concrete structure used to prevent liquid leaking in or out. Generally, it is designed to be cast in the concrete, rubber waterstops are ideal for applications where high physical properties of rubber are required. For example, reservoirs, dams and other water retaining or excluding applications with high movements or water pressure.

Features & benefits:

  • Two types of rubber waterstop, the first one is center bulb type and the second is dumbbell type
  • Two types of rubber waterstop – center bulb type & dumbbell type
  • High elasticity.
  • High elongation.
  • Excellent high movement accommodation.
  • Capable to withstand high hydrostatic head.
  • Adjust for subsidence and seismic movements.
  • Hot vulcanized site joints.

PVC waterstop, are normally being embedded in the concrete joints, acts as a continuous watertight diaphragm in order to prevent any seepage of liquids in constructions joints which are subject to hydrostatic pressure. It is designed for expansion or contraction joint; meanwhile, it can also use to accommodate lateral and transverse movements which make it capable to suit the moving joints.

The PVC waterstop is extruded form an elastomeric plastic material that are including high grade polyvinyl chloride, special resin and some chemical additives such as plasticizers and stabilizers. The high material makes PVC waterstops unsurpassed with a variety of features and benefits as shown follow.

Features & benefits:

  • Four types of PVC waterstop in blue, gray and yellow
  • PVC waterstops
  • High tensile strength.
  • Superior elongation capability.
  • Excellent inherent elasticity and impermeability
  • High resistance to acids, ozone, seawater even diesel oil.
  • Extremely alkalis, chlorinated water and other waterborne chemicals resistant.
  • Not susceptible to fatigue deterioration as with metal or rubber.
  • High quality meet even exceed the industrials standard.
  • Never discolor concrete
