Product Information
The Supercast SW range consists of swellable waterstops; Supercast SW formed sections, Supercast SWX gun-applied paste and Supercast SW Adhesive.
Supercast SW sections are made from high performance synthetic elastomer strips.
The swelling action of the Supercast SW range is the result of contact between water and hydrophilic groups which are an intimate part of the Supercast SW polymeric structure.
These hydrophilic groups are not subject to extraction and loss of swelling performance by prolonged or repeated wetting.
Expansion of the waterstop creates a positive pressure against the faces of the concrete joint, thus preventing water passing through the joint.
Uses:Integral sealing for construction joints in concrete cast in-situ.
Convenient and problem solving in situations where a conventional waterstop would require complex shuttering.
Typical uses include secant piled and diaphragm walled basements, pile caps and casting against old concrete.
The Supercast SW range can provide simple solutions to detailing pipe entries, construction joints in the vertical plane and to kicker joints.
They can be linked to Supercast PVC waterstops to give an effective combination of waterstops which maintain network continuity.
Advantages:
- Easy to install by adhesive bonding, or by casting into joint faces
- Supercast SWX enables full integration of Supercast SW and Supercast PVC networks
- Supercast SW Adhesive and Supercast SWX can be applied to damp substrates
- Solves detailing problems in conjunction with Supercast PVC waterstops
- Swelling properties unaffected by long term wet/dry cycling
- Tolerant of salts in concrete and groundwater
- Sustains effective seal in wet conditions
- Highly adaptable to accommodate complex joint shapes

Uses:

  • This allows the use of Supercast PVC for expansion joints and Supercast SW10 for construction joints, all the time maintaining an integrated network.
  • Supercast SW10 is made from high performance synthetic elastomeric strips.
  • The swelling action is the result of contact between water and hydrophilic groups which are part of the Supercast SW10 ‘Basic polymer’ molecular structure.
  • The hydrophilic groups are not subject to extraction or loss of swelling performance by prolonged or repeated wetting.
  • This is a unique feature of the basic polymer.
  • Expansion of the waterstop creates a positive pressure against the face of the concrete joint, thus preventing water passing through the protected joint.
