HYDRO-STOP® PVC WATERSTOP
STANDARD PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATION (SPS) GRADE
CJSA Hydro-Stop® PVC Waterstops lead the way in high technology
waterstops and comply with international standards.Hydro-Stop® PVC Waterstops are extruded from specially compounded PVC in accordance with BS2571 and they are designed for use in water retaining and water excluding structures where a positive seal is required for poured in-situ concrete expansion, construction and contraction joints.
Hydro-Stop® PVC Waterstops are designed for use in many types of applications and structures, and are available in a number of different size profiles to suit a project’s requirement.
Hydro-Stop® PVC Waterstops are available in rolls with separate intersections supplied to simplify and minimise on-site fabrication. The waterstop is heat weldable and allows for fast and easy on-site welding/joining.
The efficiency of any waterstop is very dependent on good workmanship, installation, and on full compaction of the surrounding concrete around the waterstop during concrete placement. Optimum performance will beachieved if the waterstop is installed by keeping these important factors in mind.
- A full range of profiles and sizes to suit all types of construction requirements
- Hydro-Stop® PVC Waterstops conform to, and exceed all major international standards
- High quality compounded PVC for long term durability and integrity
- Factory made intersections to simplify and minimise on-site fabrication
- On-site welding equipment is available upon request
- Internal profiles come with factory pre-punched eyelets for easy and secure wire tying to reinforcement
- Ability to withstand high hydrostatic head pressures

Note: Refer to CJSA’s in house Certificate of Analysis (COA) dated 15/08/2017 for test results pertaining to the above. A COA is conducted on every batch of raw material that is used in the production of Hydro-Stop® PVC waterstops. Independent laboratory test results are also available upon request. Project specific material properties can be custom compounded to suit. Material properties can vary between batches.
Note: Full dimension drawings available upon request
PROFILE WIDTH SELECTION
The width of waterstop depends upon the thickness of the concrete and positioning of the reinforcement. The thickness of the concrete should be greater than or equal to the width of the waterstop profile. Refer to your engineer for further clarification and approval.
CJSA recommends the use of its specialised welding equipment for on-site welding which consists of thermostatically-controlled Welding Irons and special Welding Jigs (each type of CJSA Hydro-Stop® PVC Waterstop requires its own welding jig to suit the particular shape). On-site joining is a simple exercise using CJSA Heat Welding Equipment comprising of an adjustable Welding Jig and Welding Iron. The ends of the waterstop are cut square and placed into the adjustable Welding Jig, then push the ends of the waterstop against the Welding Iron and bring the two ends together until the molten ends of the PVC fuse. When ordering Welding Equipment, please advise profile number of the waterstop required.
