The versatility of PVC has made these waterstops popular with specifiers and engineers. Outstanding physical properties, excellent inherent elasticity and resistance to many waterborne chemicals has made it the most widely specified waterstop material.
PVC waterstops are available in several styles and sizes. Choosing the correct waterstop begins with determining whether the joint is moving or non-moving.
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS FOR PVC WATERSTOPS INCLUDE:
- Water and waste water treatment facilities
- Dams, lock, canals, water reservoirs and aqueducts
- Tunnels and culverts
- Primary and secondary containment structure
