In business continuously since 1954, J P Specialties, Inc. has been manufacturing the Earth Shield® line of waterstops for over 20 years. We provide technical support for a complete range of waterstops and waterstop accessories. Our waterstop products (PVC, TPV, stainless steel, and MCR strip-applied) have the best physical properties in the industry, and more importantly, we provide unmatched service and technical support. 

At the engineering level, our technical leaders are officers in multiple ACI committees. We were the first waterstop company to get NSF 61 certification. Our owner has written the leading professional resource book used in the construction industry (The Little Book of Waterstop by David Poole). Our popular accredited seminar (worth one-hour CEU credit) is presented nationally, internationally, and on-line to over 200 engineering and owner offices with many thousands of attendees. 

We also provide contractors with aggressive pricing, extensive inventories, and factory fabrications for both standard and custom waterstop fittings. J P Specialties also offers on-site and on-line waterstop welding schools and certifies attendees for the proper welding of waterstops.
