Adhesive metal waterstop
For the internal, strip-form sealing of construction joints and crack-control joints for cast-in-place concrete or precast wall elements
AquaproofX® 1 is coated on one side with a reactive polymer coat that forms a permanent, highly adhesive, water-impermeable bond to the surrounding concrete. AquaproofX® 1 thus offers extremely high waterproofi ng security as a result. AquaproofX® 1 is resistant to organic wastewater. Connecting to expansion joint waterbars is possible without any problems with the aid of a special connector. Special order dimensions can also be supplied.
AquaproofX® 1 is suitable for all typical construction and crack-control joints: fl oor slab/ fl oor slab, fl oor slab /wall, wall/wall, wall/ceiling, ceiling/ ceiling. Installation is carried out with the coated side towards the water. With regard to construction joints, AquaproofX® 1 is mounted to the upper rebars. An embedment depth of 35mm is perfectly adequate. Matching accessories simply the installation. In a precast wall element, the strip is installed along the crackcontrol joint (vertically aligned) using pre-mounted fastening clips arranged on the water-bearing side. In the area of a crack-control joint in cast-in-place concrete, special fi xing brackets not only ensure the strip’s secure positioning but also purposefully weaken the cross-section thus inducing the desired crack.
