Conseal 231

Project: Janet Lee Public School Kindergarten Expansion
Location: Hamilton, ON
Contractor: STM Construction
Situation: Contractor required a specific controlled expansion water stop to be used between the pre-cast wall panels and the on grad slab. The recommended product was Conseal 231.
Solution: Conseal 231 Waterstop is a remarkable, rubber-based product that has been formulated with special hydrophilic compounds that allow it to expand in a controlled fashion when exposed to moisture, thereby sealing off leaks and restoring long-term, watertight joint integrity. Traditional, clay-based waterstop products, on the other hand, expand uncontrollably and eventually deteriorate, causing a complete loss of joint integrity.
