Waterstops for Chemical, Industrial, & Environmental Applications

W aterstops play a critical role
in the integrity of concrete
structures. They provide a fluid-

tight diaphragm when embedded in, and running

through concrete joints.

Earth Shield® Thermoplastic Vulcanizate Water-

stop (TPV), by JP Specialties, Inc., greatly expands
the scope of conventional waterstop by offering un-
matched chemical resistance to a broad spectrum of
aggressive chemicals, solvents, and hot petroleum oils.
Manufactured NSF certified, EPA-compliant water-
stop profiles are available for new construction and
retrofit, as well as the tools and accessories for proper

Ribbed Centerbulb

R ibbed centerbulb is the most versatile type of wa-

terstop available. The centerbulb accommodates
lateral, transverse, and shear movement. Ribbed
dumbbell type waterstop. This is because the stress
is first applied to the inward-most anchoring rib, and
decreases to the subsequent ribs.
centerbulb can be used in expansion, construction,
and control joints. The centerbulb allows for joint movement beyond
the ultimate elongation of the material (530%), with-
out causing distortion to anchoring ribs.
All of our ribbed centerbulb waterstops
are manufactured with a 9/16” outer di-
ameter centerbulb, which is the largest in
the industry. This centerbulb, coupled with
the outstanding mechanical properties of
our proprietary TPV elastomer (ultimate
elongation, tensile strength, etc.), provides
for unsurpassed joint movement and seal-
ing abilities.

Like all our thermoplastic vulcanizate

waterstops, ribbed centerbulb can be
heat-welded using a standard waterstop
splicing iron. This allows for easy field
fabrications, and allows the waterstop to
function as a continuous, homogeneous,

Retrofit Waterstop Systems
R etrofit waterstop is de-
signed to provide a fluid-
tight seal between existing
and new concrete construc-
tion, without resorting to
the labor-intensive and
structurally destructive saw-
cut-and-grout method. It is
ideal for constructing a new
containment curb or wall to
an existing slab, or joining a
new slab to an existing wall.
Special profile fabrications
are available for columns and
pipe penetrations.

All of our retrofit waterstops

are sold as a system, and
include all the necessary
stainless steel bars and bolts.
We also offer a high-quality
chemical resistant novolac epoxy — VEN 1000. Earth Shield® retrofit waterstops are manufactured with our
proprietary thermoplastic vulcanizate compound, which provides for unsurpassed chemical resistance.

Like all our thermoplastic vulcanizate waterstops, Earth Shield® retrofit can be heat-welded using a standard
waterstop splicing iron. This allows for easy field fabrications, and allows the waterstop to function as a con-
tinuous, homogeneous, fluid-tight diaphragm. Waterstop change of directions can be purchased along with
straight roll stock, and custom, fit-to-print waterstop modules are produced to order. Prefabricated ells, tees,
tank pads, column fittings, and many others are in stock and ready to ship.

Slab to Slab Connection

Earth Shield® has solved a long-standing problem for engineered concrete

structures with circular protrusions, such as columns, pipes, piers, and
pilasters. The problem: how to permanently seal the concrete joint
when cast-in-place concrete is formed against an existing circular
member. The solution: Earth Shield® Column & Pipe Fitting (part no.
JP320LC1.XX* [*XX is the diameter in inches]) manufactured with a
flexible, chemical-resistant polymer and stainless steel anchoring
hardware. A single laborer on the job site can quickly install the col-
umn fitting and its associated hardware. Simply apply an epoxy gel
bed to the existing surface; place the polymer ring into the epoxy gel
bed; heat weld the single opening on the polymer ring using a waterstop
splicing iron; and finally, complete the system with the stainless steel closure

The Earth Shield® system functions as an internal dam, centrally located within the cast concrete, to stop aggressive chemicals,
solvents and hot petroleum oils from penetrating the joint. By preventing the passage of hazardous liquids the Earth Shield® Col-
umn Fitting provides facility owners, engineers, and contractors with the necessary EPA-mandated containment compliance (EPA
Title 40 CFR 265.193). Of course, the system prevents the passage of water as well. The mechanical properties of the polymer, plus
the tear-web design of the JP320L profile, enable the column fitting to function equally well in expansion (isolation) joints and
construction joints.

Integrated Cap Systems

I ntegrated expansion board cap waterstop

systems are designed to replace post-applied
joint sealant, and provide a fluid-tight internal
seal like a traditional waterstop with a one-step,
integrated unit.

Earth Shield® expansion board cap waterstop

is installed on top of conventional expansion
board filler. The expansion board acts as the JPEB375
form; therefore, no form splitting is necessary. 3/4” Expansion Board Cap Waterstop

Base Seal
Base seal waterstop is ideal for flat pavement jobs such as runways, large containment slabs, etc. Base seal
waterstop is by far the easiest waterstop to install... Simply lay the waterstop directly on the compacted
subgrade, place and finish concrete, and create control joint using saw cut or other method. The base seal
provides a permanent, life-of-structure seal at the bottom of the joint.

Base seal is suitable for construction, contraction (control), and expansion joints. Base seal should not be
used on jobs that make interior wall transitions as the part is non-symmetrical and therefore cannot function
correctly. For large hydrostatic head pressures (>50 foot) ribbed centerbulb should be used instead.

Waterstop Shop Made Fittings

T esting has shown that the majority of waterstop

failures are caused when the waterstop must
make directional changes. This is because directional
changes, or fittings as they are commonly known,
require special tools and skills that are not gener-
ally required for welding the straight edges of wa-
terstops. Consequently, the fittings are either made
wrong (edge welding); there is no tensile strength in
the welds; the material is charred, burnt or otherwise
contaminated; or the worker’s lack of experience
causes unreliable welds. Shop Made Fittings are ma-
chine welded using an XLT-2000 Waterstop Splicing

cause they work. Edge welding waterstop seriously
compromises the integrity of any project. Even the
limited movement of concrete during the coefficient
of expansion and contraction can be too much for
edge welded waterstop. The edge welded water-
stop lacks the proper tensile strength and does not
maintain the characteristics of the parent material
(bulb or rib continuity). Consequently, the waterstop
often tears at the most critical junction: the change
of direction. Since all waterstops are designed to act
