A range of concrete embedded PVC waterstop profiles
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.

- Vetostop PVC 6 mm thick sections are supplied in 12 Lm rolls.
- Vetostop PVC10 mm thick sections are supplied in 10 Lm rolls.
Vetostop PVC range has an unlimited shelf life provided it is stored clear of ground in a dry and shaded place below 35ºC.
Vetostop PVC water stops choice follows the guidelines of EN BS8102:2009 and CIRIA report No. 139.
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.
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.
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.
A full range of factory-made junction pieces are available for all profiles, for the following:
Flat and vertical cross.
Flat and vertical T.
Other custom pieces can be made upon order to customer specifications.
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.
