Besides typical usage areas, it can be used as a waterstop sealant in mounting prefabricated concrete plates.

Advantages
• It does not expand upon contact with water.
• Because its waterstop characteristics are durable against rain and water it is more convenient than traditional systems.
• It can be applied under all weather conditions, including rain.
• There is no need to utilize special tools at joints.

• BibaFlex binds to concrete during hydratation.
• It is very light, and because it can be transported and applied very easily and quickly it is very economical.
• It is resistant to acids and bases.

Application on Fresh Concrete

The simplest method is to place Bibaflex directly over concrete. In this method Bibaflex binds to concrete during setting. The protective foil should be on top and it should not be pressed and sunk into concrete. At the connection points, 2 -3 cm of both tape ends are brought together, pressed and adhered airtight. Protective foil is separated just before second concreting.

Application on Cured Concrete

The surface to be treated must be dry and clean, and free from dust, dirt, rust, grease, and loose particles. Bibaflex is fixed by pressing firmly into the concrete No other equipment is required to fix it. Tapes are placed by bringing them together side by side and overlapping 2 -3 cm and then pressed and adhered airtight. Prior to concrete placement it should be checked whether Bibalex is properly adhered. Bibaflex can be removed from the surface about 30 minutes after concreting only by pulling strongly. Otherwise, the adhesion process have to be repeated. Separator PE foil must be removed prior to the placement of the new concrete.
