ABABENTO-FLEX

BENTONITE WATERSTOP

ABABENTO-FLEX is an active sodium bentonite/butyl rubber based waterstop designed to stop water infiltration through cast-in-place concrete construction joints by expanding upon contact with water to form a positive seal against the concrete. It also fills the cracks and pores on the concrete.

It is controlled based on:

ASTM D792, ASTM D297, ASTM D471

ISO 1817, ISO 2285, ISO 7619-1

DIN 53504, DIN 53505, DIN 53521

INSTALLATION

Apply by brush ABABENTO-FLEX ADHESIVE along the concrete by the width of ABABENTO-FLEX. Roll out required amount of ABABENTO-FLEX. Whilst still tacky (within 10-15 minutes) apply the ABABENTOFLEX.

Remove the release paper and press the ABABENTO-FLEX firmly to the surface for several seconds. At the highest coil end on vertical sections pay particular attention.

If the adhesive has dried out reapply to the surface. Mechanical fasteners may be used in conjunction with adhesive. Tightly butt end together to form a continuous waterstop. Do not prehydrate or submerge in water.

If severe ground water chemicals or salts exist consult with ABADGARAN GROUP Technical Service Department
