Leak Sealing Solution
Cormix developed chemical grouting systems for sealing joints, cracks, or surrounding soil in both dry and wet areas. Cormix leak sealing systems are used to seal cracks, joints, voids and to shut off water seepage. They are also used to prevent water leakage in sewerage and drain pipes, and for ground stabilization water leaks through expansion or construction joints, and water pressure from expanding fissures into major fault points that could cause serious structural damage.
Crack sealing foams, resins and gels solve the most demanding of water ingress problems in underground structures sealing and reacting water away providing permanent seals.
The type of leak and size of crack determines the best solution /product to fix the problem.
Cormix technical service is available to assist in the selection of the best solution
- Small weeping cracks can be sealed using low viscosity Polyurethane resin and foams in combination or a two in one Contite PUE400/E401.
These materials need to have very low viscosity so that the cracks are sealed to their full depths Cormix provides both Polyurethane and epoxy (dry cracks) for hairline cracks
- Major heavy water stoppage focuses more on fast reaction times requiring gels and foams with very fast reaction times that react water quickly away so that they cannot be washed away .These materials can be used in combination with cementitious plugs and pre grouting or oakum soaked in a PU gel.
