Application

  • Used in horizontal concrete 150 mm or thicker i.e. mesh reinforced slabs; and in vertical concrete 150 mm or thicker i.e. wall with at least a double row of reinforcement steel.
  • When designing Type A structures (as classified in BS 8102:2009), the product is used in construction joints in reinforced concrete, as part of the Visqueen Tanking system. It can also be used where the pipe is cast into the concrete. It shall only be used in applications where the product is completely encapsulated within the concrete.

Description

A special formulated sodium bentonite hydrophilic waterstop designed to prevent the ingress of water through cast in-situ concrete construction joints. The unique properties allow the waterstop to swell in all directions of the water unlike other waterstops which swell in a uniform direction. It contains a special additive that delays the swelling process. This greatly assists installation times during periods of rain. The high performance waterstop is designed to replace PVC/Rubber type waterbars, thereby eliminating the requirement of special pieces and seam welding.
