Westec PE (Polyethylene) Waterstops
- Polyolefin Class plastic
- Various Molecular Weights/Densities
- Suitable Resistance To Alcohols, Acids, Bases, Amines, Alkalis
- Only Certain PE Materials Are Suitable For Use As Waterstop
WESTEC's Polyethylene Waterstop is an excellent alternative in an industrial, commercial or roadway application with chemical exposure to hydrocarbons, acids or bases. It is resistance to a wide range of chemicals including hydrofluoric acid. Featuring excellent environmental stress crack resistance and flexibility (flex fatigue), with no failure after one million cycles. WESTEC PE waterstop also has very good low temperature resistance.
WESTEC PE waterstop is not recommended for use with oxidizing acid such as nitric, chlorosulfonic and fuming sulfuric. WESTEC PE waterstop is generally insoluble in organic solvents at temperatures below 122° F. At higher temperatures it is soluble in hydrocarbons and halogenated hydrocarbons.
