What is WATERSTOP RX?
What is WATERSTOP RX?
WATERSTOP-RX® is a hydrophilic strip wa- terstop designed to stop water infiltration through cast-in-place concrete construction joints by expanding upon contact with water to form a positive seal against the concrete.
How to install RX 101 WATERSTOP?
Apply WATERSTOP-RX within 30 minutes of adhesive installation; waterstop must be placed into adhesive prior to CETSEAL skinning over and curing. CETSEAL may be applied to damp surfaces, but not in standing water. WATERSTOP-RX is not a self-adhering product. Use CETSEAL to adhere the product.
What is hydrophilic waterstop?
Hydrophilic waterstops are elements of a concrete structure, intended to prevent moisture infiltration. Hydrophilic means “water-loving”, so these hydrophilic waterstops swell in the presence of moisture. They can be used to seal concrete joints, but also to seal formwork spacers or tie rods.
How do you take Cetseal?
How to use CETSEAL
- As a waterstop adhesive: Before installing the waterstop, carefully apply a long thin bead of CETSEAL to the surface.
- As a ground level termination sealant: Apply a strip of CETSEAL along the top edge of the termination bar that adjoins the waterproofing membrane and the surface.
What is Swellstop?
Sika® Swellstop™ IS A HIGHLY VERSATILE, STRIP-APPLIED WATERSTOP FOR NON-MOVING CONCRETE JOINTS. FORMULATED TO ENCAPSULATE HYDROPHILIC MATERIALS INTO A RUBBER BASE, Swellstop™ CREATES A CONTROLLED, MOISTURE-ACTIVATED, COMPRESSION SEAL.
How do I fix my waterstop?
Damaged waterstop in non-moving joints can often be repaired using a combination of SIKA HYDROTITE hydrophilic strip- applied waterstop and LEAKMASTER, a hydrophilic caulk. These products rely on expansion brought on by water exposure to create a compression seal within a joint.
What is Cetseal used for?
The primary applications are: Grade termination sealant. Membrane lap sealant. Waterstop adhesive.
How do I install Swellstop?
Allow the primer adhesive to dry for two (2) hours prior to application of the SWELLSTOP. The primer adhesive provides a dust free, tacky surface to improve the adhesion of SWELLSTOP to the concrete. Press waterstop firmly and continuously in place over primed area. SWELLSTOP should be used in non-moving joints only.
What can waterstop RX 102 be used for?
RX-102 should be used in concrete with one row of steel reinforcement, concrete curbs, planter walls, fountains, and lightweight structural concrete. Waterstop-RX is a reliable, cost-effective means to stop water infiltration through concrete cold joints.
What are dimensions of cetco waterstop RX 102?
The patented trapezoidal shape distributes the expansive force over a greater area and allows the concrete to flow more readily over the product during placement. Waterstop-RX 102 is produced in a halfcircle (Crescent) shape measuring 19 x 9 mm (3/4” x 3/8”).
What makes waterstop RX better than other Waterstops?
The key to Waterstop-RX’s effectiveness is its superior expansion to seal and fill voids and cracks in the concrete. Waterstop-RX is an active bentonite/butyl-rubber based waterstop that is designed to replace passive PVC/rubber dumbbell waterstops, thereby eliminating the requirement of special pieces, split-forming and seam welding.
How does waterstop RX seal cracks in concrete?
Waterstop-RX is a hydrophilic strip waterstop designed to stop water infiltration through cast-in-place concrete construction joints by expanding upon contact with water to form a positive seal against the concrete. The key to Waterstop-RX’s effectiveness is its superior expansion to seal and fill voids and cracks in the concrete.
