With the X-Plug's mechanical design, tightening of the stainless steel nut causes an expansion of the EPDM rubber plug, increasing its diameter inside the taper tie void.
This action simultaneously compresses the main body plug onto the bolt to create a liquid-tight seal between the plug and the wall of the taper tie void.
Concrete structures are only as watertight as the waterstops that join them.
Structures such as water treatment plants, reservoirs, locks, dams, and below grade facilities, most likely have a waterstop system in place.
Excess water must be removed from grout specimens in order to provide compressive strength test results more nearly indicative of the grout strength in the wall.
In this test method, molds are made from masonry units having the same absorption and moisture content characteristics as those being used in the construction.

Predl Systems personnel can take a lead role in the first manhole rehabilitation project with the hands-on assistance of the municipal employees.
Anchors Metal or strap usually made of brass, stainless steel or galvanized stell.
Anchors are used to tie a wall (brick, block or stone) to another structure.
Greenstreak offers the industry's most comprehensive line of waterstops available today.
The Only Mechanical Plug for Taper Tie Voids The Sika X-Plug is a "patented" mechanical plug specifically designed to SEAL the void formed in a concrete wall by the removal of a taper tie rod or pass through tie sleeve.
