Waterstops are mostly used in building foundations and tunnels to prevent liquid flow from inside or outside of concrete joints.

According to the application area, different types of waterstops can be produced.

Production may be made of EPDM, SBR or CR in accordance with EN681-1 standards, customer specifications and demands. It is an ideal solution for applications where high physical properties of rubber material are required.

Usage areas;

  • Dams
  • Treatment Plants
  • Industrial Buildings
  • Ponds
  • Hydro Electric and Thermal Power Plants 
  • Retaining Walls
  • Transmission Tunnels
  • Metro and Highway tunnels 
  • Docks
  • Water Tanks
  • Water Treatment Plants
  • Irrigation Channels 
  • Viaducts
  • Swimming Pools 
  • Flooring and Foundations 

Properties and Advantages:

  • High elasticity and elongation
  • High movement capacity
  • High hydrostatic (water hammer) resistance

Material properties

SBR and Neoprene rubber are most commonly used in the production of rubber waterstops in the world.

While SBR waterstops are preferred for water retention, neoprene rubber waterstops are preferred for sewer lines and chemical industry applications.
