Adeka Ultraseal KM-String is a chemically modified natural rubber (vulcanized) product. The manufacturing process chemically bonds a hydrophilic agent to the rubber. This permits the seal to undergo controlled expansion when exposed to moisture. This expansion capability provides a "double locking" waterstop.

  • Excellent waterstop for repairing leaks in sheet piles interlocks
  • Performs in joints of varying sizes
  • Environmentaly safe

Adeka Ultraseal KM-String is a chemically modified natural rubber (vulcanized) product. The manufacturing process chemically bonds a hydrophilic agent to the rubber. This permits the seal to undergo controlled expansion when exposed to moisture. This expansion capability provides a "double locking" waterstop i.e. one from rubber's natural resilience and one from expansion pressure generated when it is exposed to water. It will expand approximately 3 times by volume. Any void, within the limits of the product's volume expansion coefficient, will be filled by the expansion of the KM when it is hydrated.

Expansion occurs in all dimensions, diameter and length. Expansion will follow the direction of least resistance. The Volume Expansion Coefficient of 3 times indicates the material will increase 3 times by volume, not 3 times in size. Linear expansion coefficient is approximately 1.45

KM-String has excellent durability and resistance to chemical contaminants. It can perform in a wide range of solutions such as seawater or cement water. The material does not contain any toxic substance or heavy metals and is environmentally safe.

KM-String is suitable for waterstopping existing joints of various sizes. The KM string size is determined by the size of the joint. The size selected must have a minimum diameter of 1.2 times the joint width. (See Detail No. 1). The string can be easily stretched and inserted into the joint gap with a backer rod insertion tool or a blunt instrument. See datasheet for installation instructions.
