Application

  • Designed for use in all non-movement construction joints in reinforced concrete.
  • ICF and twin wall installations.
  • Suitable for both vertical and horizontal applications.

Description

A waterstop consisting of a galvanized steel plate encapsulated in a special patented coating which reacts with water to provide a watertight joint, for use in all non-movement construction joints in reinforced concrete.

The product should be installed ensuring that at least 30 mm of the plate is embedded into the first pour of concrete, allowing the remainder of the plate to be covered by the next pour of concrete.

Check clearances when using with ICF systems to ensure that there is adequate clearance from the surface of the concrete slab following Triton Cemflex VB Plate embedment, to the top edge of the waterbar in conjunction with the lowest point on the plastic web/ link within the ICF block. Consult manufacturer for details.


Features and benefits:

  • Independently tested for use up to 5 bar water pressure (with a safety factor of 2.5).
  • Suitable for use in all non-movement construction joints in in-situ reinforced concrete.
  • Can be installed before the concrete is poured, or installed directly into the fresh concrete.
  • Requires only 30 mm of concrete cover to function correctly.
  • No adhesive protection tape to be removed prior to use.
  • High strength.
  • Quick and easy to install without welding or fitting equipment.
  • Good bond with the concrete.
  • May be installed in all weather conditions; fully weatherproof.
  • Once installed, the patented coating on the waterstop has high sealing ability. The coating is activated by the alkalinity (pH 11) of the concrete, allowing a softening and expansion into any cracks in the concrete where it crystallises and seals.
