Product description

The PENTAFLEX® Shuttering Elements ABS are part of the versatile PENTAFLEX® Joint Sealing System for producing watertight concrete structures (white tank). They are used for construction joints in reinforced concrete slabs exposed to water (floors, walls and ceilings), in particular if there are high requirements on the shear resistance of the connecting joint. The joint seal is ensured by the proven PENTAFLEX KB® Seam Joint Elements. The formwork is achieved by rigid, dimensionally stable expanded metal elements, braced by a special bracket construction.
