The waterproofing of construction joints (in rafts and walls) to poured concrete elements of earth retained structures. The following construction joints can be waterproofed with Newton 301 EasyProof:

  • Raft/ raft.
  • Raft/ wall.
  • Wall/ wall.

Description

Newton 301 EasyProof is a coated metal waterbar system used for the sealing of construction joints within retained concrete structures.

The product features a flexible, adherent coating on one side, which is covered with a granular material. The rough coating creates a permanent watertight seal with the surrounding concrete to create a waterbar that works immediately, without requiring activation by water as required with hydrophilic waterbars.

Installation is quick and easy with the waterbar fitted in place to the reinforcement steel with special clips so that after the placement of the concrete, the waterbar is fully embedded within the two adjoining elements, completely blocking the passage of water through the joint.

Consult manufacturer's literature for relevant preparation instructions.

Features and benefits:

  • Immediate protection against water pressure - does not need to swell to be effective as is the case with hydrophilic waterbars.
  • Extremely high bond between the granular coating and the surrounding concrete ensuring that water cannot pass even where the concrete has slightly shrunk during curing.
  • No kicker or rebate required (not fixed to one of the concrete elements as is the case with conventional waterbars).
  • 100% waterproof up to 5 bar of water pressure.
  • Preformed corner parts for quick site installation.
  • Resistant to all types of naturally occurring ground water types.
  • More durable than conventional waterbars - not easily damaged or moved by the placing or compacting of concrete.
  • Can be installed in any weather and at any temperature.
  • Has a life expectancy and design life that is equal to the life of the concrete the product is embedded within.
