Technical Information
Product Description

Vetostop PVC Waterstops is a range of concrete embedded PVC profiles that stop water passage through the tortuous path and positive valve seal mechanisms. The profiles are precisely engineered to block water passage in concrete joints. Vetostop PVC profiles are extruded from virgin non-recycled elastomeric polyvinyl chloride rubber. The profiles are designed for both internal fixation and external fixation. The inner sections brass eyelets placed on the sections' ineffective sides to enable tying to steel reinforcement for efficient fixation during concrete pours. Heavy-duty profiles are used where large sections or where substantial heights exceed 4 meters.

Advantages
  • Unique profile design with multiple ribs.
  • Does not affect the quality of potable water.
  • Brass eyelets at 30cm spacing for more rigidity while concreting.
  • Hollow center bulb for expansion joints to accommodate movement.
  • Factory prefabricated junction pieces. Easy to join on-site.
  • Resistant to a wide range of diluted chemicals, including hydrocarbons.
  • Heavy-duty sections with high inertia resisting bending during concrete pours.
COMPLIANCE STANDARD
  • ASTM D412-06a (2013), D624, D747, D792

  • ASTM 2240-5 (2010)

  • US Corps of Engineers CRD C515, C569, C570, C571, C572, C573.

  • US Department of Agriculture Guidelines.

  • BS2571-1990, BS2782

Instructions for use

Design Criteria

Vetostop PVC water stops choice follows the guidelines of EN BS8102:2009 and CIRIA report No. 139.

Recommended Profiles

Center Fixation

  • Vetostop CE250: 250 mm wide centrally fixed with bulb for expansion joint.

  • Vetostop CC250: 250 mm wide centrally fixed profile for construction and contraction joints.

  • Vetostop RE250: 250 mm wide rear fixation for expansion joints.

  • Vetostop RC250: 250 mm wide rear fixation for construction and contraction joints.

  • Vetostop HC250: 250 mm wide centrally fixed heavy duty profile for construction and contraction joints.

  • Vetostop HE250: 250 mm wide centrally fixed heavy duty profile for expansion joints.

Application

Steel wires should tie Vetostop PVC center fix profiles inside form-work to the reinforcement through the edge flanges' eyelets. Rear fixation profiles should be fixed before concreting with nails to the concrete blinding and vertical shutters through the edge flanges.

Site Welding

The key to a leak-free water-stop network is correct on-site jointing. Vetostop PVC range is made of thermoplastic PVC and can be easily welded using suitable heating processes, such as welding knives. Cut the edges to be welded in a sharp and straight line, then secure the ends in a welding jig. Use the welding knife between the ends until an even, molten bead appears.

Remove the welding knife and press the ends firmly together. Consult Saveto technical departments for further details.

Junction Pieces

A full range of factory-made junction pieces are available for all profiles, for the following:

Flat and vertical cross.

Flat and vertical T.

Corner pieces.

Flat L.

Other custom pieces can be made upon order to customer specifications.

Additional Information
Health & Sefety

Hot welding of PVC will generate acidic hydrogen chloride fumes; jointing should occur in a well-ventilated area or while wearing an oxygen mask. Avoid breathing fumes. Wear a proper mask.
