Ribbed Centerbulb Waterstop

Ribbed Centerbulb Waterstop

JP436, JP636, JP936, JP638, JP938, PVC401, PVC436, PVC438, PVC601, PVC605, PVC636, PVC638, PVC905, PVC936, PVC938, PVC939, PVC940

Ribbed centerbulb is the most versatile type of waterstop available. The centerbulb accommodates lateral, transverse, and shear movement. Ribbed centerbulb waterstops function in expansion, construction, and control joints. They also provide superior anchoring abilities and a long fluid-flow path because of the multiple ribs on the exterior flanges. Under stress, the many ribs will distort less than a dumbbell type waterstop because the pressure is first applied to the inward-most anchoring rib, and decreases to the subsequent ribs. The centerbulb allows for joint movement beyond the ultimate elongation of the material, without distorting the anchoring ribs. All of our ribbed centerbulb waterstops have large outer diameter centerbulb. This centerbulb, coupled with the outstanding mechanical properties of our elastomers (ultimate elongation, tensile strength, etc.), provides for unsurpassed joint movement and sealing abilities. Like all our thermoplastic waterstops, Earth Shield® ribbed centerbulb waterstop can be heat-welded using a standard waterstop splicing iron, allowing for easy field fabrications and allows the waterstop to function as a continuous, homogeneous, fluid-tight diaphragm. Waterstop directional changes are available along with straight roll stock. Custom, fit-to-print waterstop modules are produced to order. Prefabricated ells, tees, tank pads, column fittings, and many others are in stock and ready to ship.

Retrofit Waterstop Systems

Retrofit Waterstop Systems

JP216L, JP320L, JP325T, JP336L, JP399T, JP450T, JP500, JP540L, JP621L, JPEB375R, PVC320L, PVC325T, PVC336L, PVC399T, PVC450T, PVC621L, PVC699T

Retrofit waterstop is designed to provide a fluid-tight seal between existing and new concrete construction, without resorting to the labor-intensive and structurally destructive saw-cut-and-grout method. It is ideal for constructing a new containment curb or wall to an existing slab or joining a new slab to an existing wall. Special profile fabrications are available for columns and pipe penetrations. All of our retrofit waterstops are sold as a complete system and include all the necessary stainless steel bars and bolts. We also offer a high-quality chemical resistant novolac epoxy — VEN 1000. Like all our thermoplastic waterstops, Earth Shield® retrofit waterstop can be heat-welded using a standard waterstop splicing iron, allowing for easy field fabrications, and enable the waterstop to function as a continuous, homogeneous, fluid-tight diaphragm. Waterstop change of directions can are available along with straight roll stock, and custom, fit-to-print waterstop modules are produced to order. Prefabricated ells, tees, tank pads, column fittings, and many others are in stock and ready to ship.

Integrated Cap Systems

Integrated Cap Systems

JPEB350, JPEB375, JPEB375R, JP158, JP1225

Integrated expansion board cap waterstop systems are designed to replace post-applied joint sealant, and provide a fluid-tight internal seal like a traditional waterstop with a one-step, integrated unit. Install Earth Shield® expansion board cap waterstop on top of conventional expansion board filler or Earth Shield’s chemical resistant, plastic expansion board. The expansion board acts as the form; therefore, no form splitting is necessary, significantly accelerating the project schedule and provides a long-lasting, attractive finished concrete joint. Earth Shield® screed key cap slides over the top of the metal screed key, eliminating the need for sealant. Like all our thermoplastic vulcanizate waterstops, Earth Shield® integrated cap system waterstop can be heat-welded using a standard waterstop splicing iron allowing for easy field fabrications and allows the waterstop to function as a continuous, homogeneous, fluid-tight diaphragm. Waterstop directional changes are available along with straight roll stock. Custom, fit-to-print waterstop modules are produced to order. Prefabricated ells, tees, tank pads, column fittings, and many others are in stock and ready to ship.

Earth Shield® tear web waterstops are for large joint movements such as tank foundations. Tear web is suitable for expansion joints. For construction and contraction (control) joints, install ribbed centerbulb instead. We also manufacture retrofit products specifically designed to accommodate large shear movements, such as tank ring foundations subjected to settlement.

All of our retrofits are mechanically adhered to the existing concrete using one of our chemical resistant, novolac epoxies (VEN500 or VEN1000), stainless steel batten bar, and stainless steel anchor bolts.

Other profiles include split waterstop and labyrinth.

Like all our thermoplastic waterstops, Earth Shield® can be heat-welded using a standard waterstop splicing iron allowing for easy field fabrications and enables the waterstop to function as a continuous, homogeneous, fluid-tight diaphragm.

Base Seal Waterstop

Base Seal Waterstop

JP206, JP211, JP215, JP216L, JP621L, PVC206, PVC211, PVC212, PVC215, PVC621L, PVC901

Base seal waterstop is ideal for flat pavement jobs such as runways and large containment slabs. Base seal waterstop is by far the easiest waterstop to install... Simply lay the waterstop directly on the compacted subgrade, place and finish concrete, and create control joint using a saw cut or another method. The base seal provides a permanent, life-of-structure seal at the bottom of the joint. Base seal is suitable for construction, contraction (control), and expansion joints. For sizeable hydrostatic head pressures (>50 foot) ribbed centerbulb should be used instead. Like all our thermoplastic waterstops, Earth Shield® base seal waterstop can be heat-welded using a standard waterstop splicing iron allowing for easy field fabrications and enable the waterstop to function as a continuous, homogeneous, fluid-tight diaphragm. Waterstop directional changes are available along with straight roll stock. Custom, fit-to-print waterstop modules are produced to order. Prefabricated ells, tees, tank pads, column fittings, and many others are in stock and ready to ship.

Dumbbell Waterstop

Dumbbell Waterstop

JP443, JP647, JP648, JP948, JP949, JP1149,PVC443, PVC647, PVC648, PVC910, PVC948, PVC949, PVC1149

Dumbbell waterstop is installed most often in below grade applications, with limited movement. Dumbbell waterstop works well in construction and contraction (control) joints; whereas, dumbbell centerbulb accommodates construction, control, and expansion joints. The large centerbulb (1-1/2” outer diameter) on the JP949 (and JP1149) waterstop profile, coupled with the outstanding mechanical properties of our thermoplastic elastomers and large endbulb anchors, enable the product to withstand large-scale joint movement (seismic or settlement). JP648, JP948, JP949, and JP1149 are all 3/8” thick... The largest and thickest profiles available in the industry! Like all our thermoplastic waterstops, Earth Shield® dumbbell waterstop can be heat-welded using a standard waterstop splicing iron allowing for easy field fabrications and enable the waterstop to function as a continuous, homogeneous, fluid-tight diaphragm. Waterstop directional changes are available along with straight roll stock. Custom, fit-to-print waterstop modules are produced to order. Prefabricated ells, tees, tank pads, column fittings, and many others are in stock and ready to ship.

Flat strip waterstop is installed most often in below grade applications, with limited movement. Flat strip waterstop functions in construction and contraction (control) joints. Both JP637 and JP937 are all 3/8” thick... The largest and thickest profiles available in the industry!

Waterstop eBook
Concrete is everywhere: Buildings, fountains, parking decks, locks and dams, roads and bridges, and myriad other constructions. Because of its long lifespan, high workability, and near-worldwide availability, concrete is the preferred building material for large structures, especially those subject to hydraulic pressure. Not all concrete structures require protection from the ingress of water or other fluids, but those that do require a properly installed waterstop in and along their concrete joints. The concrete joint is the most likely point of leakage and waterstops are uniquely designed to prevent this. This book’s sole purpose is to educate the reader on all facets of waterstop.
