Is it possible to use the KAP-Steel-Wave in water proofed building parts?

YES !!!


The KAP-Steel-Wave is available also for building parts which are under water or water pressure. For this the KAP-Steel-Wave get on the stick a ring with 20 mm out of bitumen. The ring out of bitumen will stay half in the layer and half inside the filling concrete.


Depending on this design the line for the water along the stick is closed. The KAP-Steel-Wave in water proofed execution was tested and has a report from the Baustoffprüfstelle Bodensee till a hydraulic pressure of 5 bar. The report is available at Kappema.


All further measure at the joint, edges and gap of the elements must be done according the technical rules and norms and were not tested in the report. For the properly execution is the user responsible.
