1. WADIT® is tested and certified to keep water out and withstand 5 bars of pressure
WADIT® has been tested to withstand 5 bars (~70 psi) of differential water pressure. This means it will remain in place and functional with even a 160' head of water pressure against it.
2. Optimal flexibility
Conventional materials become as hard as glass in temperatures of just 50°F. WADIT®, on the other hand, remains extremely flexible even in ground water (normally 41°F to 45°F throughout the year). This means that no sealant can break out of the interlock when the sheet pile walls are inserted, thus resulting in leaks.
3. Environmental: No harmful effects to the environment
WADIT® is non-toxic and is made from sustainable natural raw materials. WADIT® sealant can be used without any restrictions in sheet pile wall interlocks in ground and surface water areas ... no fear of harmful effects if it is used in the area of drinking water extraction systems" (quote from the German equivalent of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)).
4. Once installed it is impervious to weather
Once WADIT® is in the interlock, it doesn't matter if it rains or snows: the performance of WADIT® will not be affected by weather. WADIT® can be transported and stored without restrictions. Furthermore, you can drive the piling as soon as 15 minutes after installing; or, let it sit in your yard or at the job site for months before driving.
5. Unique durable bond
WADIT® creates a secure bond even in extreme conditions, such as: strong water, ice or earth pressure, movements of the sheet pile wall, or displacement of the piles during transport, etc., in the interlock chamber. Even in daytime temperatures of 120°F, the material will remain stable in the interlock.
6. WADIT® can be delivered already installed in the sheet piling interlocks
The mill or distributor where you buy your sheet piling can also deliver the sheet piling with WADIT® already installed. This may not be available with all types of sheet piling in all areas. (Please call PilePro® at 866-666-7453 / 512-243-1228 to find an authorized WADIT® installer in your area and/or to receive a quote for PilePro® to carry out the WADIT® installation).
7. Memory effect = material rebound after movement
This unique effect of WADIT®, even in low temperatures such as that in ground water, guarantees an excellent seal even in the event of torsion and other movement in the sheet pile wall interlock.
8. Corrosion Inhibitor
Once installed in the interlock the oxygen is take out of this vital area there by limiting the affects of corrosion, over time the interlock chambers become one solid mass.
