• EXPANSION JOINTS FOR BITUMINOUS OR PVC-P WATERPROOFING MEMBRANES FOR USE ON ROOFS, TUNNELS, VIADUCTS ETC.

    1. The ITALPROFILI® Art. 690 has the following characteristics:
        • two 150 mm lateral wings with 35°angled ribs at 1 mm in height and a series of slots along the outside edge to ensure sound anchorage to the bitumen and to the bituminous membrane;

       

      • a central body with 2 different thicknesses which preform both as an expansion joint and a seal and is 38 mm x 38 mm x 25 metres in length.

       

    2.  The joint is extruded using a specially stabilized thermoplastic but “rubbery” type material which is compatible with bitumen and with bituminous membranes. This material has a high mechanical resistance both in expansion and contraction, also at low temperatures and is highly resistant to UV, ozone and other chemical and atmospheric agents.
    3. Art. 692 has the same characteristics as Art. 690 with the exception of the lateral wings which are smooth to facilitate welding to PVC membranes.

    NOTE: Preparatory work before installing the elastic joint.

      •  Lay out the joint with the bulb facing towards the top.

     

    • Leave to relax for 15-20 minutes so that any creases or similar in the materials caused during packaging or shipping are eliminated. This enables the joint to return to its natural state and return to its initial shape.

  • The JOINTS are high quality flexible, stabilized PVC-P profiles for use as take up joints, or vertical and horizontal expansion joints in reinforced concrete guaranteeing a perfect watertight seal even under pressure, or where there are air gaps or foreign bodies in the joints required when building dams, foundations, canals, tunnels and similar. The PVC-P used guarantees a high ageing resistance, as well as excellent resistance to alkalies, brackish water, and acidic environments. Should the structure be continuously exposed to hydrocarbons or vegetable based alkalies, a special type of PVC-P can be supplied. The various types of waterstop joints are available to resist the high stresses the material will be subjected to during settlement of the building, as well as its normal expansion and contraction due to temperature fluctuations.

  • The HYDRO EXPANSIVE JOINT has a particular chemical composition which makes it inalterable in time. Even at maximum expansion it is dimensionally stable. After several cycles of hydration and dehydration it retains the ability to increase its volume. The swelling effect of the joint is mechanically very resistant, elastic, in contact with water begins its gradual and controlled expansion, it has been studied in such a way that the fresh cement can attach to it correctly without it undergoing any deformation.

    USES:

    • All types of construction joints.
    • Construction joints subject to both temporary and permanent hydrostatic pressure (Approx. 12 bar).
    • Sealing joints between concrete and stone, concrete and masonry
    • Foundations and walls in basements, tunnels, pipes, steel, concrete and precast etc.
    • Construction joints in tunnels, hydraulic works, dams, water tanks, swimming pools and sewage treatment plants.

    ADVANTAGES:

    • Controlled expansion: it does not create cracks in the concrete even when not fully matured.
    • Dimensional stability: maintains cohesiveness even during expansion.
    • High resistance: resists up to 12 bar of hydrostatic pressure (approx. 120 meters water column).
    • Repeat expansion: maintains performance even after several cycles of expansion.
    • Very flexible: it can be fixed easily by means of riveting or by polyurethane based adhesives.
    • Simple joints: joints executable by simple side by side positioning.

  • The HYDRO-EXPANSIVE BENTONITE JOINT is distinguished by its strong, fast and reliable swelling. Composed primarily of 75% Natural Sodium Bentonite, 25% Butyl Rubber and aggregate, it is used for sealing hydraulic construction joints in concrete. In contact with water it increases its volume filling the pour joints between sections and any small voids in the gravel, often found on the bottom of the vertical caused by the shrinkage of concrete in insufficient vibration. It offers a perfect way seal to the passage of water.

     

    USES:

    • In situ concrete pouring.
    • Horizontal joint waterproofing.
    • Vertical waterproofing, wall to wall.
    • Civil construction, special solutions.

    ADVANTAGES:

    • Simple to installing.
    • Complete with accessories for fixing.
    • Ease of work.
    • No waste.
