SIMEX Bangladesh is Best in PVC Water Stopper Installation
A water stopper is a material embedded in the concrete, with the singular purpose to obstruct the passage of water through the joint. It is designed for growth or contraction joint; in the meantime, it will accommodate lateral and cross movements that create it capable to suit the moving joints.
The PVC water stopper is extruded type an elastomeric plastic material as well as high-grade PVC, special rosin, and a few chemical additives like plasticizers and stabilizers.
PVC Water stoppers are used for providing water impermeability in expansion-contraction (structure) joint seen in concrete structures exposed to high & low water pressure and for preventing vibrations and deformations that would appear in concrete blocks.
Uses of PVC Water Stopper
PVC water stoppers are for use in concrete joints subjected to hydrostatic pressure. Embedded in concrete, PVC water stoppers span the joint to form a continuous, watertight diaphragm that prevents the passage of liquid through the joint. The water stopper must be properly selected and installed to accommodate joint expansion, contraction, and other longitudinal and transverse movements. In addition to these considerations, the water stopper must also be resistant to any liquids to which the water stopper may be exposed.
There are some other uses of PVC water stopper:
- Canal lining
- Water cisterns
- Water refining facilities
- Swimming pools
- Construction tunnels
- Hydroelectricity & thermal plants
- Refining facilities
- Metro constructions
- Power plants viaducts
- Supporting walls
- Flooring settled on ground & foundations
- Industrial structures
Installation of PVC Water Stopper
Appropriate installation determines the performance of water stoppers in water-proofing and reduces spilling and cracking of surrounding concrete. In order to provide convenience to our customers, the guidance of water stopper installation is a list below:
- Before installation, uncoil water stoppers (especially for those water stoppers that have shape-memories) to let it resume straight shape – that makes the water stopper easy to handle and fabricate.
- Check the water stopper whether it has any defects or cracks. Replace the defective and unacceptable water stoppers.
- Place water stoppers at the appropriate position. Make sure that about a half-width of it is embedded in the concrete.
- Contain about 1.5 times of clear coverage between the water stopper and surround reinforcing steel without any rock pockets and air voids.
- Tie the water stopper to surrounding reinforcing steels by threading steel wire to metal eyelets, punched holes, or hot rings of water stoppers to fix the water stopper firmly. Meanwhile, make sure there is no displacement during fastening.
- Pour the concrete and vibrate concrete nearby the joints (especially those under the water stopper) to enhance the contact with water stoppers.
- Clean debris and dirt of concrete surface after the first pour.
- Repeat the above methods for a second pour.
