Polyurethane Leak Sealing Explained

Posted by Charlie Lerman on Jul 29, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Polyurethane Leak Sealing Explained

Leaking concrete can be detrimental to safety and property values.  Pressure injection forces polyurethane resin into leaking cracks, joints, voids, and other defects.  After injection is complete, the polyurethane resin rapidly reacts with water to form a flexible, watertight seal.  Leaks in concrete structures can be permanently repaired with water-activated polyurethane and a few assorted leak seal accessories.

From hairline concrete cracks to gushing leaks, virtually any defect can be sealed with the Alchemy-Spetec series of leak seal resins and products.

Watch this animation for a detailed explanation of the polyurethane leak sealing process...

Alchemy-Spetec Leak Seal Resources

Posted by Charlie Lerman on May 10, 2019 3:53:49 PM

ALCHEMY-SPETEC LEAK SEAL  RESOURCES

ALCHEMY-SPETEC LEAK SEAL  RESOURCESLeaking concrete can be detrimental to safety and property values. The products offered by Alchemy-Spetec deliver the ultimate solution for hairline cracks, gushing leaks and other waterstop issues.

Sealing Leaks with Concrete Crack Injection

Concrete starts decaying immediately after it cures. Even brand new construction can require leak seal follow up work. Older concrete structures are even more susceptible. Leaks through concrete are generally going to be through cracks, joints, and honeycomb (areas in poured concrete of mainly course aggregate with voids in between). Depending on water volume and pressure, and the size of the joint or crack, you are going to encounter weeping leaks, steady leaks, and gushing leaks. These leaks can be sealed with crack injection resin.

Stopping Multiple Leaks with Curtain Wall Grouting

Curtain wall grouting is often required when cracks cannot be identified, when the walls are made of material that does not respond well to crack injection (such as masonry, stone and CMU), and when previous leak seal methods have failed.  Curtain wall grouting is the process of injecting water reactive resin behind the leaking wall in a grid pattern. The water on the other side mixes with the grout and cures to a solid mass covering
the surface of the wall on the other side.

Waterstop

Newly constructed floor/wall joints with no waterstop lining can be vulnerable to water infiltration. When designers and builders neglect to line the joints, water can seep into the structure and out onto the floor. Needless to say, water on the floor can be an inconvenience, it can be a safety hazard, and it can damage property. In addition, floor/wall joint leaks can cause the concrete to decay and spall over the long run. Alchemy-Spetec offers a variety of waterstop solutions.
