SURESTOP PVC WATERSTOP
CORKJOINT Sure-Stop® PVC Waterstops lead the way in high technology and design, and comply to international standards. Sure-Stop® PVC Waterstops are extruded from specially compounded PVC in accordance with BS2571. They are designed for use in water retaining and water excluding structures where a positive seal is required for poured in-situ concrete expansion, construction and contraction joints.
The range of profiles for both centrally and externally placed applications when embedded into the concrete, form a continuous barrier making Sure-Stop® PVC Waterstops ideal for preventing water penetration. These profiles are available in rolls with separate intersections supplied to simplify and minimise on-site fabrication. Concrete structures are only as watertight as the waterstops that join them.
Sure-Stop® PVC Waterstops are designed to allow for expansion, contraction and other movements that can cause joints to open and close. The efficiency of any waterstop is very dependent on good workmanship and on full compaction of the surrounding concrete. Optimum performance will be achieved if the waterstop is installed by keeping these factors in mind.
