PVC Edgetie™


Internal PVC waterstop, for passive protection of joints in reinforced concrete structures. It is an internally cast passive waterstop system manufactured in a range of sizes for sealing joints in concrete structures subject to water pressure.

They are extruded from high grade PVC compound with first quality plasticizers to form a pliable waterstop which remains flexible at low temperatures. Being cast into the centre of the concrete member, PVC Edgetie™ waterstops provide resistance against hydrostatic pressure from both faces.

Features/ Benefits:

  • Proven profile - solid circular end bulbs promote better concrete compaction and simplifies site jointing.
  • Flexible - will accommodate movement during construction and service life.
  • Valve action - created by concrete shrinkage around end bulbs.
  • Edge flange with reinforced eyelets.
  • Suitable for horizontal and vertical applications.
