PVC waterstop is a product designed for use in concrete construction containing joints, one side of which is subject to hydrostatic pressure.
PVC waterstop is used as a barrier within the joint to prevent the passage of liquid through or across the joint. It is embedded in the concrete on both sides of the joint, and spans the joint. It is designed to accommodate lateral and transverse movement which can cause a joint to open, close or misalign.
Structures requiring the use of PVC waterstop are basements, retaining walls, dams, locks, sewage treatment and water treatment plants, storage tanks, water reservoirs, canals, culverts, tunnels, elevator pits, roof and floor slabs, parking decks, bridge decks and abutments - and any other concrete structure requiring tight joints.
