CJSA offers a range of Hydro-Stop® Copper Waterstops designed and manufactured from phosphorus non-arsenical copper alloy at 1.0mm thick to AS1566 or BS EN 1172 international standards and specifications.
Hydro-Stop® Copper Waterstops are predominantly used in water retaining structures such as dams, which receive very high hydrostatic heads of water pressure against the joint and provide a very high grade of performance and give resistance to certain types of chemical attack due to their durability, integrity and strength.
Hydro-Stop® Copper Waterstops are available in three standard types and sizes (refer to physical dimensions) with custom shapes and sizes formed to your requirements. A range of factory made and quality controlled intersections can also be provided to decrease the problems associated with manufacturing them on site, leaving straight welded joins for the field.
CJSA recommends that their copper waterstops be braze welded with silver brazing alloy (SBA 250) or equivalent type (refer to our joining/welding procedures) and after forming they are annealed at 200°C for one hour in an electric furnace and allowed to air cool.
Note: The products design and performance, its intended use, installation and final confirmation and approval for use, must be provided by the project’s Design Engineer and Project Manager.
At all locations where joints intersect to each other, the connection of the Hydro-Stop® Copper Waterstop must be undertaken with the use of the specific factory fabricated intersection sections. These sections must be supplied by the manufacturer/supplier of the Hydro-Stop® Copper Waterstop and be approved and inspected by the relevant authority, prior to use. The straight overlap joining to these intersection pieces is undertaken at site based upon the recommended Joining/Welding Procedures as stated below.
In confined spaces or in still air conditions, the use of a ventilation fan or suitable respirator should be used, and the advice and approval of the Site Safety Supervisor is essential.
