Application

For the integral sealing of horizontal and vertical construction joints in fresh concrete, pipe penetrations and sealing concrete to steel joints. It may be used in the place of conventional PVC waterbars as an effective method of preventing passage of water at construction joints.

Description

Swellable hydrophilic bentonite waterstop, made from a combination of synthetic rubber and sodium bentonite clay. When it is installed in a confined joint it will swell upon contact with water to ensure a waterproof joint is created. Expansion of the waterstop creates a positive pressure against the faces of the concrete creating a joint that is resistant to hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostop BR has a swelling capacity of up to 400% of its original volume. The expansive clay mass will seal any hairline shrinkage cracks that appear in the concrete.

Features/ Benefits:

  • Swelling capacity of up to four times the original volume when in contact with water.
  • Easily installed by semi-skilled labour adapting to complex joint shapes.
  • Includes bentonite composition that will fill any small cracks/ fissures. The durability of the installed strip will exceed the design life of the structure.
  • May be used in conjunction with Hydrostop PVC waterbars.
  • Used in conjunction with Hydrostop WSM, a gun-applied hydrophilic mastic for detailing purposes and linking into PVC Waterbars so as to maintain integrity.
  • Ease of application by mechanical fixing or the use of adhesive.

Applications:

For the integral sealing of horizontal and vertical construction joints in fresh concrete, pipe penetrations and sealing concrete to steel joints. It may be used in the place of conventional PVC waterbars as an effective method of preventing passage of water at construction joints.

Ancillary components:

Hydrostop WSM should be used to adhere the Hydrostop BR to concrete.
