SEMI RIGID POLYURETHANE INJECTION GROUTING SYSTEM
When injected in the concrete Perma Inject STC reacts with water or moisture to form semi-rigid foam which is about twenty times larger than the reacting components. During this reaction with water there is a formation of carbon dioxide gas which makes the foam penetrate deep into the fine crevices of the concrete and seals them effectively. It also fills up all capillaries and honeycombs in the concrete to discourage accumulation of water in these pockets at a later stage. Perma Inject STC is more suited for static cracks and in situation of heavy leakages.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Clean the surface to be waterproofed and remove the plaster or loose concrete in the area. Assess the leaky area and decide the injection nozzle pattern. The leakage could be either from a horizontal or from a vertical crack. Drill holes on either side of the crack at an inclination of 45° inclined towards the center of the crack at an interval of 8 inches centre to centre. Always start from the lowest point and progress upwards. In the drilled holes fix the packers effectively. In weak concrete the drilled holes becomes larger than desired, in such cases the packers may not fit tightly to leak- proof it. If this happens then grout the surrounding of the packers with the stiff consistency paste of Perma Plug. Mix the two components the prepolymer resin and the catalyst. The catalyst can be adjusted between 6 to 10% to adjust the gel time depending upon the speed and the site conditions. Inject the product into the packer from the manual or motorized high pressure pump till the foam is observed from the neighboring holes. Keep the counter pressure on through the nozzle nipples till the reaction is complete and the foam has formed and set. Move on to the next packer and continue the process. Clean the pump and the equipment with Perma Inject Clean a special material specially developed for cleaning polyurethanes.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
The workers should use face masks and hand gloves to avoid direct breathing of the toxic vapors and to avoid direct contact with skin. Ventilate the working area adequately and maintain over all hygienic conditions. Clean the tools and the pumps immediately after use.
Perma Inject STC is available in packing of 20 kg & 1 kg for prepolymer resin and the catalyst in 2 ltr & 100 ml packs.
