HYDROPHILIC TUNNEL SEGMENT GASKETS
VIP also manufacture hydrophilic gaskets for both our Cast-In and Glued-In profiles.
Hydrophilic compounds are designed to swell when they come into contact with water which can close the gap between the gasket faces.
VIP Hydrophilic Gasket Types
VIP supply hydrophilic gaskets in 2 main formats:
|Hydrophilic cord inserted into a slot in a TSG prior to installation|
|Hydrophilic strip co-extruded onto an elastomeric TSG|
