SURE-STOP® Rubber (TPE) Waterstop – International Profile

Product Description

CORKJOINT Sure-Stop Rubber TPE Waterstops lead the way in high technology waterstops and comply with international standards.

CORKJOINT Sure-Stop® Rubber (TPE) Waterstops are used in construction projects as a means of preventing water from penetrating concrete joints. These waterstops are placed in concrete joints and expansion joints to form a continuous watertight barrier that prevents the passage of water, which can cause serious damage to concrete structures. 

Sure-Stop Rubber TPE Waterstops are extruded from a specially compounded rubber and are designed for use in water retaining and water excluding structures where a positive seal is required for poured in-situ concrete expansion, construction and contraction joints.

Sure-Stop Rubber TPE Waterstops are designed for use in many types of applications and structures, and are available in a number of different size profiles to suit a project’s requirement.

Sure-Stop Rubber TPE Waterstops are available in rolls with separate intersections supplied to simplify and minimise on-site fabrication. The waterstop is heat weldable and allows for fast and easy on-site welding/joining.

The efficiency of any waterstop is very dependent on 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.

Overall, Sure-Stop Rubber (TPE) Waterstops are an essential component in the construction of watertight structures, and they play a crucial role in ensuring the long-term durability and safety of concrete structures.


  • A full range of profiles and sizes to suit all types of construction requirements.
  • Sure-Stop® Rubber (TPE) Waterstops conform to, and exceed all major international standards.

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 Joining

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-Stop® Rubber (TPE) 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 Rubber (TPE) fuse. When ordering Welding Equipment, please advise profile number of the waterstop.

Factory Made Intersections

A wide range of standardised prefabricated intersection pieces are available allowing easy site welding of butt joints to Sure- top® Rubber (TPE) Waterstop junction pieces. Customised pieces can be made to suit. In such cases, drawings must be provided giving exact dimensions and jointing details. 


Written Specification

Where shown on the drawings waterstops shall be Sure-Stop® Rubber (TPE) 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 Sure-Stop® Rubber (TPE) Waterstop 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.
