Arcon supply a range of products designed for use on building and engineering structures in the water industry that carry WRAS approval. WRAS stands for Water Regulations Advisory Scheme. Approvals can be given to products and materials that come into contact with the public mains water supply in the UK, to ensure that they comply with Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations or Scottish Byelaws.
WRAS approved materials for coating concrete and steel include Nitocote EP405 a high build-epoxy resin coating and cementitious waterproof coatings, such as Nitocote CM210, for water retaining and water excluding structures. Sikagard-62 is also suitable for contact with potable water (DWI Ref Number 56.4.197). Brushbond FLXII is a WRAS approved elastomeric waterproofing coating.
Sikadur-31DW and Sikadur-31DW Rapid are thixotropic epoxy resin adhesives and repair mortars designed for use in contact with drinking water. They can be used in a wide variety of fixing, filling and repairing applications, however their WRAS approval relates solely to their use with Sikadur Combiflex (see below).
Sikadur Combiflex System is a WRAS approved system used to bridge cracks and seal connection and movement (both expansion and contraction) joints in water retaining and water industry structures. It has been used in water supply reservoirs, culverts, tunnels, tanks, pipes, waste water treatment plants and hydro-electric power plants to name just a few applications.
Water stops and water bars are used in in situ concrete structures to prevent water leaking through construction joints and junctions. WRAS approved rigid waterstops include Supercast PVC Waterstop Hydrofoil. WRAS approved hydrophilic swellable water bars include Supercast SW10, Supercast SW20 and Supercast SW30
