Waterstop plays a critical role in the integrity of concrete structures. Waterstop provides a fluid-tight diaphragm when embedded in, and running through concrete joints. Earth Shield® Thermoplastic Vulcanizate Waterstop (TPV) (aka TPE-R), by J P Specialties dramatically expands the scope of conventional waterstop by offering unmatched chemical resistance to a broad spectrum of aggressive chemicals, solvents, and hot petroleum oils. Manufactured NSF 61 certified, EPA-compliant waterstop profiles are available for new construction and retrofit, as well as the necessary tools and accessories for proper installation.
Earth Shield® Polyvinyl Chloride Waterstop (PVC) is the perfect solution for most water and wastewater applications. Earth Shield® PVC Waterstop is manufactured from prime virgin resin and is the trusted choice for environmental engineered concrete structures. CRD C572-74 compliant and NSF 61 certified waterstop profiles for new and retrofit applications.
Earth Shield® Type NB190® Waterstop — a modern, hydrophilic chloroprene rubber waterstop with unmatched durability and water sealing capabilities.
