Solco Polybar Waterstop

Solco Polybar Waterstop is a hydrophilic Thermoplastic Elastomer waterproofing strip made from a combination of an elastomer and a hydrophilic resin. When confined between a construction joint, and in the prescence of water it will swell to over four times its original volume and build up pressure inside the joint to seal against water leaks.

The composition of the Solco Polybar Waterstop ensures that initial swelling is delayed and makes Solco Polybar Waterstopsafe to install in insitu concrete applications.

In addition to the standard version (red), a Salt Water Variant for use in seawater (saline concentrations up to 3%) and contaminated water, as well as a SuperSwell variant for use under highly saline conditions (salt concentrations up to 10%) are available in all sizes.

Typical Uses:
■ Sealing joints between tunnel segments.
■ Sealing joints between concrete precast elements,
■ Horizontal/vertical construction joints & pipe penetrations,
■ Sealing concrete to steel joints.
■ Sealing construction joints in fresh concrete ensuring sufficient coverage to all edges (100mm all directions)
