Hydrophilic Rubber Joint Sealing

Hydrophilic Rubber Joint Sealing from Pozament

Hydrophilic rubber joint sealing is a technique that uses water-swelling rubber profiles to seal construction joints against pressurized water in reinforced concrete structures. Water-swelling rubber, also known as hydrophilic rubber, is a material that expands up to four times its own volume when it comes in contact with water.

Tarmac's hydrophilic joint seals are a range of innovative products that are designed to provide effective sealing for construction joints and penetrations. These joint seals are made of a hydrophilic material that swells on contact with water, creating a watertight seal that prevents water from penetrating the joint. Tarmac's hydrophilic joint seals are suitable for use in a wide range of applications, including basement walls, tunnels, and water tanks. They are easy to install and require minimal maintenance, making them a cost-effective solution for long-term waterproofing.
