Pvc Water Stop
We have recruited a pool of talented employees to offer a world class range of Pvc Water Stop. These are flexible Plastic strips used as a barrier within the joint to prevent the passage of liquid through. Our Pvc Water Stop is largely used in Swimming pools, structural foundations, Water tanks, canals, culverts, tunnels, elevator pits & other below ground level constructions. These are made from anti-ageing customized plastic compound & PVC at our state of the art machining facility, as per the standards laid down by regulatory bodies.
- High Elasticity
- Excellent weather resistance
- Lower water absorption
Water stops are also termed as Water Bars, seals construction joints. A typical water stops have two identical half on both side of a central bulb. These additional extensions are provided with the aim of increasing path length for water entering behind the edge of water stop.
Compounding of Water Stops:
Water Stops are manufactured from Anti-Ageing customized plastic compound with PVC as a base polymer and exhibiting required properties like High Elasticity & Tensile Strength, Immune to Corrosion, Excellent weather resistant, Unaffected by acids, alkalis, metals salts and other chemicals, Lower water absorption, Withstand high Hydrostatic pressure, Can bear shocks of heavy turbines, Earth quakes, Floods.
Application in construction Industry
PVC Water Stops act as sealant at RCC Masonry concrete joints & prevent any seepage of water in or out though joints.
PVC Water stoppers withstand expansion or contraction movement at joints and take care of any deflection or displacement arising due to change in temperature, differential settlement of foundation, Geo disturbances causing Seismic forces like earth quack, thus eliminating danger of cracks.
Selection of appropriate Water Stop:
1. Ribbed Type- multipurpose Water Stop design, used where differential settlement of poured concrete is expected and a firm grip in concrete is desired.
2. Dumbbell Type- Greater variation in temperature causes expansion or contraction of joints, Dumbbell type Water Stop is suggested for these sites.
3. Kicker (Surface) Type: these are externally placed and are use where embedded types cannot be used due to interference of steel reinforcement.
Water Stopper is tied to steel frame works or small eyelet by means of small wires certain metal clamps meant to grip the water stop seal and keep it in proper position.
Firstly one half of the Water Stop is embedded in the concrete leaving the second half extended. Second half is also embedded leaving the centre bulb free for expansion and contraction movements.
Area of Application:
Public Utilities : Bridges, Road Embankments, Tunnels, Water Tanks, Swimming Pools, Water Filtration plants, Swage Plants, Clarifiers, Dams, Canals, Aqueducts, Reservoirs, Irrigation Projects Cooling Towers.
Building: Basements, Foundations Slabs, Masonry Joints, Terraces, Retaining Walls, Overhead & Underground Water Tanks, Skyscraper.
Industries: Chemical Plants, Fertilizer Steel, Waste Treatment Plants, Thermal & Hydro Power Stations, Atomic Reactors, Shipyards & Docks.
b. Swellable Water Stop:
They are hydrophilic water stop which exhibits excellent durability and water sealing capacity. It expands as it absorbs water and fills up concrete joint gaps conforming to the gap variation, ensuring excellent sealing. It is based on the technology of hydrophilic, a material which expands in a controlled fashion by approximately eight times by volume in the presence of moisture to create a pressure seal within the joint.
It is used throughout the construction industry to seal horizontal and vertical construction joints for poured in-situ concrete. Its unique characteristics give it long lasting durability and superior waterproofing results even when subjected to high hydrostatic pressure and in marine environments and it is easy to install.
