How does CEMflex VB Plate work:

When fresh concrete is placed around CEMflex VB Plate Waterstop, the alkalinity (pH11) of the concrete activates the patented coating producing a chemical reaction, causing the patented coating to soften and expands lightly, improving its osmotic effect.  This allows it to penetrate deeply into any cracks in the concrete where it crystallises and seals the concrete.

Once installed, the patented coating on CEMflex VB Plate Waterstop has infinite sealing ability. Should water or moisture come into contact with the coating at any time in the future, the coating will re-activate and repeat the sealing process.
