Waterstop

CS&E stocks many types of waterstop, including PVC, TPV, hydrophilic, and mastic. We have certified waterstop welding instructors on staff and offer on-site technical assistance and training. We also stock all the necessary tools to make your waterstop installation go smoothly.

PVC Waterstop

Stacks Image 195
Earth Shield® Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Waterstop is used as a fluid-tight diaphragm, embedded in concrete, across and along the joint, for environmental engineered concrete structures. Earth Shield® Flexible PVC Waterstops are resistant to a wide range of water and wastewater treatment chemicals and are certified to meet or exceed the performance requirements of CRD C572-74.

Install Earth Shield® Flexible PVC Waterstop in all concrete joints. Waterstop should be centered in, and run the extent of the joint. All changes of directions should be prefabricated, leaving only butt-welding for the field. If installing in an expansion joint, keep center bulb unembedded to allow it to accommodate movement as designed. Use optional factory installed brass eyelets (or #3 hog rings) and tie wire to secure waterstop to reinforcing steel to avoid displacement during the concrete pour. Splice straight lengths of waterstop and Shop Made Fittings to straight lengths, with an ST-10® In-Line Waterstop Splicer with the iron temperature set to 350°F to 380°F.

Hydrophilic Chloroprene

Stacks Image 202
Type NB190® is a modern, hydrophilic chloroprene rubber waterstop with unmatched durability and water sealing capabilities. Manufactured NON-BENTONITE, modified chloroprene rubber, Type NB190® more than doubles its original size (400% in 36 days) when exposed to water. This expansion creates an effective compression seal within joints of limited to no movement. Type NB190® can expand and reexpand unlimited times with virtually no loss of physical properties. Additionally, Type NB190® has excellent resistance to many chemicals, is heat-resistant, and is safe for drinking water.

Earth Shield® Modified Chloroprene Hydrophilic Waterstop is used as a fluid-tight diaphragm, running along the joint, for water treatment plants, wastewater treatment plants, and fluid containment structures. Earth Shield® Modified Chloroprene Hydrophilic Waterstops are intended for non-moving construction joints only.

Earth Shield® Type NB190® Hydrophilic Waterstop Paste is for use in concrete cold joints, precast joints, tunnel segments, pipe penetrations, and as an optional adhesive for Type NB190® hydrophilic chloroprene rubber waterstops. The product has a 250% expansion when immersed in fresh water for 30 days.

TPV Waterstop

Earth Shield® Thermoplastic Vulcanizate Waterstop (TPV) (aka TPE-R) is used as a fluid-tight diaphragm, embedded in concrete, across and along the joint, for primary and secondary containment structures. Earth Shield® Chemical Resistant Waterstops are resistant to a wide range of oils, solvents, and aggressive chemicals. Alcohol, ketones, glycols, esters, and aqueous solutions of acids, salts, and bases have little effect on Earth Shield® Thermoplastic Vulcanizate Waterstop.

Unlike polyvinyl chloride (PVC) waterstop, Earth Shield® waterstop contains no plasticizer, stabilizer, or filler to leech out when exposed to chemicals, fuels, ozone, and aggressive industrial fluids. Also, unlike PVC waterstop, Earth Shield® can withstand prolonged exposure to high and low temperatures (-78°F to 275°F long term) without detrimental effect. Earth Shield® TPV Waterstop is NSF Standard 61 certified for use in drinking water and is made of a recyclable polymer, so it’s good for your health and the environment.

The superior chemical resistance of Earth Shield® Thermoplastic Vulcanizate Waterstop is enhanced by the use of a ribbed centerbulb configuration, which is available in a 4, 6, and 9-inch width. This provides for greater mechanical bonding with the concrete and a barrier against migration of liquid flow around the waterstop. The ribbed centerbulb style also allows for joint movement and may be used in above or below grade applications. Additional shapes are available for retrofit, extreme expansion, stainless steel and base seal applications.

Hydrophilic Butyl Bentonite

Stacks Image 216
Earth Shield® Type 20 & Type 23 Hydrophilic Butyl Rubber Waterstops are designed to swell when exposed to water, yet maintain a solid structural integrity that will not deteriorate due to uncontrolled expansion, unlike many of the traditional, clay-based waterstops currently on the market. This swelling ability prevents the passage of water through concrete construction joints. Type 20 & 23 waterstops are fast, easy, and economical to install. Simply apply Earth Shield® Primer to the existing concrete, firmly press the waterstop to the primed surface, and place your second pour of concrete. No splitting of forms or difficult field welding is necessary to achieve a watertight seal.

Mastic Waterstop

Earth Shield® Type 10 is a high-quality, self-sealing mastic waterstop which prevents water from penetrating non-moving joints in concrete construction.

Earth Shield® CR125 Chemical Resistant Strip Waterstop is designed to prevent the passage of aqueous hydrocarbons through non-moving concrete joints in environmental engineered concrete structures. The product aggressively bonds to most substrates and is unaffected by rain or wet conditions during installation.
