Concrete embeded PVC waters range
Vetostop PVC water stops is a range of concrete embedded PVC profiles that stop water passage through tortuous path and positive valve seal mechanisms. The profiles are precisely engineered to block water passage in concrete joints. Vetostop PVC profiles are extruded from virgin non-recycled elastomeric polyvinyl chloride rubber. The profiles are designed for both internal fixation and external fixation with the internal sections brass eyelets placed on the non effective sides of the sections to enable tying to steel reinforcement for efficient fixation during concrete pours. Heavy duty profiles are used where large sections or where concrete heights exceed 4 meters.
- Vetostop PVC 6 mm thick sections supplied in 12 Lm rolls
- Vetostop PVC10 mm thick sections supplied in 10 Lm rolls
Vetostop PVC range has an unlimited shelf life provided it is stored clear of ground in a dry and shaded place below 35ºC.
PVC water stops choice follows the guidelines of EN BS8102:2009 and CIRIA report No. 139
Vetostop PVC center fix profiles inside form-work should be tied by steel wires to the reinforcement through the eyelets in the edge flanges. Rear fixation profiles should be fixed before concreting with nails to the concrete blinding and vertical shutters through the edge flanges.
The key to a leak free waterstop network is correct on-site jointing. Vetostop PVC range is made of thermoplastic PVC, and can be easily welded using suitable heating processes, such as welding knife. Cut the edges to be welded in a sharp and straight line then secure the ends in a welding jig. Use the welding knife between the ends, until an even, molten bead appears.
Remove the welding knife and press the ends firmly together. Consult Saveto technical departments for further details.
Full range of factory made junction pieces are available for all profi les, for the following:
Flat and vertical cross.
Flat and vertical T.
Other custom pieces can be made upon order to customer specifications.
Hot welding of PVC will generate acidic hydrogen chloride fumes, jointing should take place in a well ventilated area, or while wearing oxygen mask. Avoid breathing fumes. Wear a proper mask.
