Rockmax Tunnelstop is a hydrophilic rubber sealing material strip for sealing joints in precast concrete tunnel segments. It‘s designed for especially high water pressure. Rockmax Tunnelstop is formulated from high grade elastomeric material and hydrophilic resins. It will swell (more than 300%) when contact with water to perform internal pressure inside the joints against the water leaks.

AREA OF USES

Rockmax Tunnelstop designed especially for precast concrete tunnel segments with and including underground precast structures, steel and concrete joints and various civil engineering construction projects.


ADVANTAGES

  • High water pressure resistance.
  • High swelling rate (>300%).
  • Stability and long term services.
  • Durability.
  • Can tailor of profile and size to fit     the design segments.
  • Not affected by repeat wet and     dry cycles.
  • No problems with compression     or abrasion during installation     segments.
