Fosroc Supercast SW Adhesive
Fosroc Supercast SW Adhesive is an adhesive designed for the application of Supercast SW water-stops.
Swell-able water-stops for in-situ concrete.
Integral sealing for construction joints in concrete cast in-situ. Convenient and problem solving in situations where a conventional water-stop 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 water-stops to give an appropriate effective combination of water-stops which maintain network continuity.
Easy to install by adhesive bonding, or casting into joint faces
Fosroc Supercast SWX enables full integration of Supercast SW and Supercast PVC network
Supercast SW Adhesive can be applied to damp substrates
Easy-to-use gun applied product.
Solves detailing problems in conjunction with Supercast PVC water-stops
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
SUPERCAST RANGE DESCRIPTION
The Fosroc Supercast SW range consists of swell-able water-stops; 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 water-stop creates a positive pressure against the faces of the concrete joint, thus preventing water passing through the joint. Supercast SWX is a grey, elastomeric water-swell-able gun applied paste. Supercast SWX can be used as a swell-able adhesive to adhere Supercast SW water-stop to concrete.
It has the capability to fill undulations and surface holes in the concrete beneath the water-stop and swell into these when required.
Fosroc Supercast SWX also enables Fosroc Supercast SW sections to be linked into conventional Supercast PVC water-stop networks. This allows the use of Supercast PVC for expansion joints and Supercast SW for construction joints whilst maintaining an integrated waterproofing network.
