TRITON CEMflex VB Plate Waterstop is a galvanized steel plate encapsulated in a special patented coating that reacts only with the water within the concrete to provide a watertight joint. It is designed for use in all non-movement construction joints in reinforced concrete – and is especially suited to ICF or twin wall installations.
A surface applied system which waterproofs and protects concrete in depth. Supplied as a powder which only needs mixing with water before application on: basements/retaining walls, concrete slabs (floor/roof/balcony), construction joints, water retaining structures, swimming pools, reservoirs, sewage treatment plants, channels and potable water tanks. When applied to a concrete surface, the active chemicals combine with the free lime and moisture present in the capillary tract to form insoluble crystals which block capillaries and minor shrinkage cracks to prevent any further water ingress (even under pressure). However the product still allows the passage of water vapour through the structure, allowing the concrete to ‘breathe’. It also protects concrete against seawater, aggressive ground water and certain chemical solutions.
A unique chemical treatment for the waterproofing, protection of concrete and increase durability – designed to be used as an admix at the time of batching. The active chemicals react with fresh concrete to generate a non-soluble crystalline formation which actively seals the concrete itself against the penetration of water or liquid, protecting it from the deterioration effect of harsh environmental conditions. Shrinkage cracks within design tolerances are constantly resealed creating a life-time active protection system. The use of Triton TT Admix within the concrete complies with BS8102 and is categorised as Type B. TT Admix is acceptable as a designated line of defence as required by leading buildings insurers.
A pre-formed waterstop available in a ready to use roll which swells up to 350% when in contact with water. When fully encapsulated by poured concrete, the expansive forces form a seal against concrete surfaces to resist hydrostatic pressure and to stop water from entering the sub-structures. Triton TT Waterstop returns to its original size if the concrete and substrate is completely dry but re-expands to seal the potential leaking joints when water or moisture is re-introduced. Its service life is indefinite with a permanent water tight function and excellent resistance to acid and alkaline conditions. The product is extruded in a rectangular shape for optimal adhesion. The built in delay system means Waterstop will activate approximately two days after constant exposure to water and will withstand up to a 40 metre head of pressure.
A gun applied, one-component hydro-reactive expansion sealant for waterproofing joints in concrete. It will swell up to 100% when in contact with water to create a durable waterstop with long lasting adhesive and hydro-swelling properties. In contact with sea water, Triton TT Swellmastic S2 will expand between 50% and 70%.
