In order to stop water from seeping from concrete structures, hydrophilic waterstops are utilised to seal the joints between the slabs.
They can serve a variety of functions, including as defending buildings against the harm caused by an ongoing water flow and preserving the necessary level of structural integrity.
Hydrophilic waterstops’ simplicity of installation is its most major benefit. Concrete is then cast on top of the items after they are cemented into place at the cold joint.
A top-notch raw material must be used in the water-stopper’s manufacturing, and there must be no flaws.
The Global Hydrophilic waterstop market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
A new generation of high-performance expanding tape made of acrylic polymer is called PRONIL ACR, and it is a BBA Certified Product.
Turkish companies produce Pronil, a natural hydrophilic waterstop based on sodium bentonite. When it comes into touch with water, it can expand up to 900%.
The product will contract to its original installation dimension when completely dry, then re-expand upon wetting.
It is used in concrete construction for the sealing of construction joints, including wall to base connections, pipe entry systems, sealing of openings, and interface sections between old and new concrete.
It can be conveniently stored in its original moisture-proof wrap in a cool, dry location away from the sun. On a variety of uneven substrates, PRONIL ACR can be applied.
In concrete, it creates an impervious barrier against water.Deformed joints and surfaces are compatible with the product. It is quick and simple to implement, saving time and labour. The product doesn’t need to be hardened over time or weld together.
In saltwater, it also expands. Contrary to traditional joint sealing techniques, this product is a good substitute.
When in contact with water, it will expand to fill any gaps, cracks, holes, or capillaries in the concrete structure and create a solid seal. To effectively seal the joints in concrete construction, use a compound made of butyl rubber and bentonite.
A variety of irregular substrates can be employed with this conformable material. It ensures that water in concrete is blocked off impenetrably. Excellent conformance to distorted surfaces and joints.
