GB/T 18173 Polymer water-proof materials is divided into the following 4 parts. — Part 1. Water-proof sheet;
— Part 2. Waterstop;
— Part 3. Hydrophilic expansion rubber;
— Part 4. Rubber gasket for shield-driven tunnel.
This Part is Part 3 of GB/T 18173.
This Part was drafted in accordance with the rules given in GB/T 1.1-2009. This Part replaces GB/T 18173.3-2002 Polymer water-proof materials - Part 3. Hydrophilic expansion rubber. Compared with GB/T 18173.3-2002, the major technical changes are as follows.
— MODIFY the definition of the volume expansion ratio (SEE Section 3.1 of this Part, Section 3.1 of 2002 edition).
— MODIFY the classification of the product-type hydrophilic expansion
rubber in accordance with the volume expansion ratio (SEE Section 4.1.2 of this Part, Section 3.2.2 of 2002 edition).
— ADD the product classification in accordance with the cross-sectional shape (SEE Section 4.1.3 of this Part).
— MODIFY the product marking method. DELETE the marking method of
composite expansion rubber (SEE Section 4.2.1 of this Part, Section
3.3.1 of 2002 edition).
— MODIFY the schematic diagram for the section structure of hydrophilic expansion rubber, and the dimensional tolerances of the product-type
hydrophilic expansion rubber (SEE Section 5.1 of this Part, Section 4.1 of 2002 edition).
— MODIFY the requirements for the appearance quality of the product-type hydrophilic expansion rubber (SEE Section 5.2 of this Part, Section 4.2 of 2002 edition).
— ADJUST the physical property indicators of the product-type hydrophilic expansion rubber compound (SEE Section 5.3 of this Part, Section 4.3 of 2002 edition).
Polymer water-proof materials - Part 3.
Hydrophilic expansion rubber
This Part of GB/T 18173 specifies the terms and definitions, classification and product markings, requirements, test methods, inspection rules, symbols, packaging, transportation and storage for the hydrophilic expansion rubber of polymer water-proof materials.
This Part is applicable to the hydrophilic expansion water-proof rubber made of absorbent materials, such as water-soluble polyurethane prepolymer, sodium acrylate polymer absorbent resin, etc., and natural or chloroprene rubber. This kind of rubber is mainly applied to the seams and water-proof sealing of the underground and foundation works, such as tunnels, pipe jacking, civil air defense, etc., and the water-proof sealing of the industrial equipment, such as vessels, locomotives, etc.

3 Term and definition
The following term and definition are applicable to this document.
3.1 Volume expansion ratio
6.3 Physical properties
6.3.1 Test piece preparation
Standard product-type test pieces shall be prepared along the calendering direction under the vulcanization condition equivalent to the products. CUT an enough length of product passing the specification and appearance quality inspections as required by the test for finished product testing. CONDUCT the test piece preparation according to the provisions of GB/T 2941. PLACE the test pieces at a constant temperature of (70 ± 2) °C for 8h. PLACE them in standard status for 4h afterwards. CONDUCT the test according to the
requirements of Table 2. The putty-type test pieces are directly taken from the products. CARRY out the test piece preparation according to the dimensions specified in the test method.
The hardness determination shall be carried out according to the provisions of GB/T 531.1.
6.3.3 Tensile strength and elongation at break
The determination of tensile strength and elongation at break shall be carried out according to the provisions of GB/T 528. USE Type II test pieces.
6.3.4 Volume expansion ratio
The determination of volume expansion ratio shall be carried out according to the provisions of Annex A. After immersion, it is not allowed to use weighing method for test piece inspection. The inspection shall be carried out according to the provisions of Annex B.
6.3.5 Repeated water immersion test
IMMERSE test pieces in the distilled water at a room temperature of (23 ± 5) °C for 16h. After taking them out, DRY at (70 ± 2) °C for 8h. IMMERSE test pieces in water for 16h again. DRY for 8h afterwards... After 4 cycles of repeated water immersion and drying, MEASURE the tensile strength and elongation at break, and TEST the volume expansion ratio according to the provisions of Section 6.3.4.
6.3.6 Low-temperature bending
CUT test pieces into 20mm × 100mm × 2mm cuboids according to the
provisions of Annex C.
6.3.7 High-temperature flow
c) After official production, when there are major changes in structure, design, process, materials, manufacturing equipment and management of the
d) When resuming production after stopping production for more than six months;
e) When there are major differences between the exit-factory inspection results and the last type inspection results;
f) When the national quality supervision and inspection agency requires the type inspection.
7.1.3 Periodic inspection
Under normal circumstance, CONDUCT the repeated water immersion test and low-temperature bending properties inspection to the product-type hydrophilic expansion rubber, and CONDUCT the high-temperature flow test and low-
temperature test to the putty-type hydrophilic expansion rubber once every six months.
7.2 Determination rules
7.2.1 If the dimensional tolerances, appearance quality and various indicators of the physical properties comply with the technical requirements, the products will be determined as conforming.

If some of the re-inspection results are still unqualified, CONDUCT 100% inspection to this batch of products. Furthermore, REJECT the non-conforming products.
7.2.3 If any one of the indicators of physical properties fails to comply with the technical requirements, DOUBLE the test pieces for re-inspection. If the re- inspection results are still unqualified, DETERMINE this batch of products as non-conforming.
