BITUMAT PVC WATERSTOPS are produced by melting and shaping mixtures obtained from Polyvinylchloride (PVC) resin, stabilizer, plasticizer, anti-oxidant and dyestuff in suitable temperature and pressure in Extruders.
BITUMAT PVC WATERSTOPS are used for providing water impermeability in expansioncontraction (structure) joint seen in concrete stuctures exposed to high & low water pressure and for preventing vibrations and deformations that would appear in concrete blocks.
Fine tooth saw, wire brush, Stanley knife, 110v or 220v power source, blow lamp if nonelectrical mild steel knife is used.
Fused site welded jointing of PVC waterstops can result in the liberation of hydrochloric acid fumes. In confined spaces forced ventilation must be provided or a suitable respirator used.
On open sites special precautions are not normally required but operators should avoid inhaling any fumes. Before using electric welding knife ensure that it is correctly earthed.
Bitumat was founded in 1984 but its roots go back to 1975 when the founders became involved in the roofing waterproofing industry as dealer and applicator in Saudi Arabia for a major manufacturer from the U.S.A.
