A Brief Overview of the Waterstop Line

Newly constructed floor/wall joints with no waterstop lining can be vulnerable to water infiltration. Neglect to line the joints, and water will seep into the structure and out onto the floor. Needless to say, water on the floor can be an inconvenience, it can be a safety hazard and it can damage property. In addition, floor/wall joint leaks can cause the concrete to decay and spall over the long run.

Spetec ITS Kit
The Spetec ITS Kit is a complete injection tubing system for sealing of construction joints in concrete. It can also be used to seal cold joints, expansion joints, pipe penetrations, and tunnel segment joints. In addition, this kit can be used as a primary waterstop system.

Spetec R-ITS
The Spetec Re-Inectable Tube System is a primary waterstop in cold joints and pipe joints. When used with acrylates like Spetec AG 200, it can be flushed with water at a pre-determined set time, creating a clean tube ready for subsequent use. It can also function as a standard single-use injection tube system with polyurethane injection resins like Spetec PUR H100 and Spetec PUR F400. The Spetec R-ITS is compatible with combination grouting techniques involving microfine cements.

Spetec SST500
This is a black hydrophilic synthetic waterproofing strip. Spetec SST500 swells up to 500% of its original size upon contact with water and is used to seal pipe penetrations as well as wall/floor joints. This is a caulk designed to swell and/or expand in the presence of water. It is safe for marine environments and can be applied under water. Spetec WT400 is used to seal pipe penetrations, wall joints, and sheet pile joints.
