Under long term compression conventional rubber seals become distorted. Their resilience is reduced and they lose their waterstopping efficiency. Water -
In order to get sufficient waterstopping performance by resilience, it would be necessary to, either increase the hardness of conventional rubber seals, or to choose greater dimensions or complicated forms. The result is a heavy, complicated seal that is difficult to handle and install. In contrast, water swelling rubber seals expand in water. This results in seals of smaller sizes and less hardness that do the same job. These seals are not only easier to install, but save valuable time and money.
This technically advanced, patented product is a unique DOUBLE LOCKING waterstop. Do to its ability to stop water two ways (by compression and by water induced expansion pressure), MC-2005T can ensure greater protection against water intrusion than many other types of waterstops available today. Environmentally safe and durable, it retains its waterstopping properties for the life of the structure.
