Product Description

SURE-SHIELD® TPER Chemical Resistant Waterstop is extruded from specially compounded cross-linked TPER material that resists a wide range of chemicals, oils, fuels, solvents, alcohols and aqueous acids, bases and salt solutions.

SURE-SHIELD® TPER Chemical Resistant Waterstops provide high performance features for long-term durability and integrity of the structure, for continuous use in low and high temperatures and have excellent ozone and weather resistance.

SURE-SHIELD® TPER Chemical Resistant Waterstop are designed for use in many types of applications and structures, and are available in a number of different size profiles that are for use in construction, contraction or expansion joints.

SURE-SHIELD® TPER Chemical Resistant Waterstops are heat weldable and allow for fast and easy on-site welding/joining of the waterstop.

The efficiency of any waterstop is very dependant upon good workmanship, installation, and on full compaction of the surrounding concrete around the waterstop during concrete placement. Optimum performance will be achieved if the waterstop is installed by keeping these important factors in mind.


  • A full range of profiles and sizes to suit all construction requirements.
  • High quality compounded TPER for long term durability and integrity.
  • Excellent heat & ozone resistance.
  • Internal profiles come with factory pre-punched eyelets for easy and secure wire tying to reinforcement.
  • Ability to withstand high hydrostatic head pressures.
  • Factory made intersections to simplify and minimise on-site fabrication.
  • On-site welding equipment is available upon request

Typical Applications


Technical Features


Physical Properties


Note: Refer to Corkjoint’s in house Certificate of Analysis (COA) dated 30/12/2016 for test results pertaining to the above. A COA is conducted on every batch of raw material that is used in the production of Sure-Shield® TPER waterstops. Independent laboratory test results are also available upon request. Project specific material properties can be custom compounded to suit. Material properties can vary between batches.

Profile Drawings



The width of waterstop depends upon the thickness of the concrete and positioning of the reinforcement. The thickness of the concrete should be greater than or equal to the width of the waterstop profile. Refer to your engineer for further clarification and approval.

Chemical Resistance


Note: TPER chemical resistance list available upon request.

Profile Width Guidelines

The width of waterstop depends upon the thickness of the concrete and positioning of the reinforcement. The thickness of the concrete should be greater than or equal to the width of the waterstop profile. Refer to your engineer for further clarification and approval.

Site Jointing

CORKJOINT recommends the use of its specialised welding equipment for on-site welding which consists of thermostatically-controlled Welding Irons and special Welding Jigs (each type of CORKJOINT Sure-Shield® TPER Waterstop requires its own welding jig to suit the particular shape). On-site joining is a simple exercise using CORKJOINT Heat Welding Equipment comprising of an adjustable Welding Jig and Welding Iron.

The ends of the waterstop are cut square and placed into the adjustable Welding Jig, then push the ends of the waterstop against the Welding Iron and bring the two ends together until the molten ends of the Sure-Shield® TPER Waterstop fuse together. When ordering Welding Equipment, please advise profile number of the waterstop required.

Factory Made Intersections

A wide range of standardized prefabricated intersection pieces are available allowing easy site welding of butt joints to Sure-Shield® TPER Waterstop junction pieces. Customised pieces can be made to suit and in such cases, drawings must be provided giving exact dimensions and jointing details.


Written Specification

Where shown on the drawings waterstops shall be Sure-Shield® TPER Chemical Resistant Waterstop (state profile number required) as supplied by CORKJOINT. Provide factory made waterstop fabrications for all changes of direction, intersections and transitions, leaving only straight butt joined splices for on-site fabrication.

Health and Safety Information

Joining of TX PVC Waterstops is performed by heat welding which results in the discharge of hydrogen chloride mist and vapour. 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. For further information or advice on health and safety precautions, safe handling, storage and correct disposal of products, please refer to the most recent product Safety Data Sheet (SDS) which is available upon request.
