Sika water stop is the best type of water stop

 Sika has great experience in waterproofing all types of expansion joints and construction in reinforced concrete structures. Our continuous research and progress also includes creating the best technologies available in waterproofing, especially in modern methods of concrete construction and its requirements. Moisture insulation is one of the most important and most dangerous types of insulation. Buildings removes and purifies moisture, rain, groundwater and surface water. Elements that are commonly insulated in buildings include the interior and exterior surfaces.

Sika Water Stop

Sika Water Stops made of PVC-P can be used as flexible water stations and are designed for enclosure (expansion) and masonry joints in new waterproof concrete structures and are available in a range of different types, shapes and sizes to suit different types of structures and joint sealing applications.

Uses of Sika Water Stop

Waterproofing of new concrete structures, including movement (expansion) solutions and masonry joints, typical structures include:

  • Residential buildings.
  • Low commercial buildings.
  • Underground parking.
  • Water retention structures and water treatment plants.

Features and benefits:

  • High tensile strength and elongation.
  • Permanent flexibility.
  • Suitable for low to medium levels of hydrostatic water pressure.
  • Resistant to all natural environments in soil and groundwater.
  • Resistant to a wide range of chemicals.
  • Robust products designed for handling and on-site installation.
  • Suitable for in-store and on-site heat welding.
  • Causes of humidity
  • building direction
  • Newly built walls remain in a wet state for a certain period of time.

The use of poor labor causes defects in connections, window sills, building locks, sanitary equipment, wiring, etc., allowing water to enter the building and causing dampness, for example, neglecting roof slopes and rain drainage or working in a way that bad.

Damage caused by waterproofing to various building elements:

  • Corrosion of metals such as steel rebar, doors and metal structures
  • Concrete crumbles and its resistance weakens over time.
  • The wall cladding is damaged and separated from the building structure.
  • The growth of algae, roots, deformation of the building.
  • Damage to the paintwork.
  • Exposing electricity networks to damage and power outages.
  • Separate ceramic tiles from walls and floors.
  • Oysters swell, peel and separate from the walls.
  • Leakage of salts and pollutants into water tanks.
  • Health problems related to building users, whether from mold or the smell of disease.

moisture sources in buildings

the rain

  • Rainwater penetrates through ceilings and walls, and through door and window frames and unenclosed expansion joints.

wet wind

  • Moisture with the help of strong winds penetrates the outer walls and around the loose masonry.
  • moisture insulation materials
  • First: flexible materials
  • For example, bitumen, a flexible, moisture-blocking material, is the most widely used and widely used:
