Hydrophilic Water Bar

Recommended Posts

I need to install a hydrophilic water bar in the joint between my floor slab and basement walls, I’ve tried all the local BMs but none stock it.

 

Any recommendations where I can purchase it online.

Do you mean like Sikaswel, as these people sell:

Did you drop a baton in the slab to shutter a trench for it to sit in, and use retarder on the slab where your walls will cast onto? About half way down this blog post you’ll see what I mean (as applied to walls) http://2gomadindorset.blogspot.co.uk/2017/08/wall-pour-strike-eat-sleep-repeat.html

Yes that’s s the thing, Sikaswel. 

 

Ys us I have a grove for it to go in, I’ve also been told to use a gun applied adhesive to stick it in place.

I thought this was an establishment for selling tap water by the £5 glass in Notting Hill ?.

..make sense as the brutality of the pour could i guess dislodge it.  

If that co' doesn't want to sell you it try Resapol http://resapol.com

Having shopped around I found that Arcon were the cheapest for what I needed.
