CONCRESIVE

1300 SERIES
A range of injection resins
Description
CONCRESIVE INJECTION RESINS are two component
crack injection fluids for sealing cracks, filling cavities and
voids in concrete and stopping water ingress. They can be
injected into cracks of varying sizes including cracks too fine
to be filled with traditional materials.

Types and primary uses


CONCRESIVE INJECTION RESINS are available in three
grades each formulated for a specific purpose, applied by
two distinct methods of injection.
CONCRESIVE 1315 (Rebond LV)
A two component epoxy resin system based on low-viscosity
resins. Ideal for sealing static cracks from widths greater
than 100 microns but no more than 9mm. It is highly
penetrative and cures to form a permanent seal against
ingress of corrosive fluids and gases and is capable of
restoring integrity to structural elements. (Use Method 1 or
2)
CONCRESIVE 1320 (Rebond UR)
A two component polyurethane system for the effective
sealing of live cracks. Cures to form a flexible and
impermeable seal where further limited movement of
concrete is anticipated. (Use Method 2)
CONCRESIVE 1335 (Rebond UW)
A two component moisture reactive polyurethane which
expands to form a closed cell foam when in contact with
water.

Typical applications
Repair and sealing of various types of concrete cracks
including static, limited movement cracks (live) and where
there is water ingress or leakage. The injection resins can
be used to fill and bond static dormant and dynamic cracks
in:

Columns
Bridge decks
Floors
Piers
Abutments

Tunnels
Basements
Beams
Underpasses

Advantages
Low viscosity
Will penetrate deeply into cracks and cavities.
For horizontal cracks with widths of 1mm and greater,
CONCRESIVE 1320 can be simply poured in.
Excellent adhesion

CONCRESIVE INJECTION RESINS have superior


adhesion to dry and damp surfaces.
Versatile

CONCRESIVE 1315 will enable a structural repair to be


effected whilst CONCRESIVE 1320 will offer a flexible
seal to enable limited structural movement.
Impervious

CONCRESIVE 1315 and 1335 will resist hydrostatic


pressure and block penetration of deleterious
substances.
Chemical resistance

CONCRESIVE INJECTION RESINS will resist


commonly encountered solutions such as sewage, sea
water, alkalis, dilute acids, ammonia, formaldehyde,
mineral and vegetable oils, animal fats and corrosive
gases.
Pre-packed and easy to use

Materials are pre-weighed and require only on site


mixing. (Bulk packaging available)
Solvent free

Can generally be used in confined spaces without


ventilation.

In each method of injection, all cracks to be treated should


be flushed out with clean, dry, oil free compressed air or
inert gas (nitrogen). This should be done after drilling of
injection holes or fixing nipples.
Where loose mortar or aggregate exists these should be
neatly routed out into a small U groove and the dust blown
out.
Method 1

Application methods
Method 1
Areas where cracks occur but which are not substantially
affecting the integrity of the concrete or structure i.e. sealing
to prevent further deterioration through the ingress of
harmful substances.
Method 2
Where cracks have developed and require absolute
restoration of structural integrity i.e. pressure sealing to
ensure total bond between interfaces or where injection of
CONCRESIVE 1335 is required to stop the ingress of water.
It is strongly recommended that the services of an
injection specialist are used for this method.

d) Adhesive securing nipple.

Vertical application
Pre-drill holes into the crack to a minimum depth of 1525mm. The centres of these drilled holes should be set
apart approximately 1 -1.5 times the depth of the crack.
(approx. 150-300mm)
Note:
If cracks are very fine, drilling should be avoided as the dust
produced may block the fissures and interfere with the
injection process.
Attach nipples with flange attachments over these centres
and bond with either CONCRESIVE 1418 or CONCRESIVE
2200.
If concrete members are cracked on both sides those
nipples set in the rear should be sited midway relative to
those at the front (in instances where the thickness of the
member and width of the crack will possibly inhibit the
penetration of grout, Method 2 should be considered). Once
all nipples have been bonded the cracks are then sealed at
the surface with either CONCRESIVE 1418 (which will cure
sufficiently in 2-3 hours) or CONCRESIVE 2200 (which
should be allowed to cure overnight). It is obviously
imperative that cracks be sealed on both sides.

Horizontal application
For simple applications such as horizontal slabs, wider
cracks can be filled simply by pouring in CONCRESIVE
1315 or 1320. It may be necessary to make a small surface
reservoir with mastic or a similar product by applying around
the crack perimeter. This will avoid spillage and wastage of
CONCRESIVE 1315 or 1320.
Method 2
Using a percussion drill with a 10mm bit, drill access holes
on either sides of the crack at 45 angles to the centre of the
plane of the crack. The drill is to pass through the centre of
the crack plane at a depth of half the slab thickness (A-B) =
CD. Holes are drilled at regular intervals on both sides of
the crack. (See Figure 3).
Using an angle grinder, cut a groove 3-5mm deep over the
crack. Clean the groove and fill with CONCRESIVE 2200.
Build the CONCRESIVE 2200 2-3mm thick over the crack,
extending 15-20mm either side of the crack.

and depths of drilling

Injection
Thoroughly blend and mix the 2 components (Part A & B)
ensuring a uniform colour is achieved. Pour the mixed
material into the INJECTION GUN and insert into the lowest
point. Inject material until it seeps out of the nipple above.
Blank the first nipple and continue the injection process in
the nipple above.
Repeat the process until the whole length of the crack has
been injected. Ensure that injection is effected at a steady
rate. Allow to cure overnight and remove nipples. Repair
any blemishes with either CONCRESIVE 1418 or
CONCRESIVE 2200.

The back side of the member is sealed where possible using


either CONCRESIVE 1418 or CONCRESIVE 2200 and
allowed to cure. The proprietary injection needle is inserted
and the fastening nut is tightened. The supply line from the
injection pump is connected to the fastened needle and
pumping commences (from the bottom upwards in vertical
members). Depending on the depth and width of the crack
a pressure ranging from 50-150 bar is suitable.

Specification clause
All cracks and voids, where indicated shall be injected with
CONCRESIVE INJECTION RESINS (specify) as
manufactured by Degussa Dubai, or similar approved. The
appropriate material shall be mixed and placed in
accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations.

The injection resin is forced out at the interfaces of the crack


ensuring total contact between interfaces. Additionally all
voids, subsidiary cracks and other vacant spaces are filled
and sealed.

A Degussa technical representative or approved applicator


should be consulted to assist with on-site recommendations
etc.

Pumping of the resin continues until resin exudes from the


crack on either side of the access hole. The injection needle
is removed and the access hole temporarily plugged. The
process is then repeated in an adjacent access hole.

Storage

After initial cure of the CONCRESIVE resin the temporary


corks are removed and the access holes are permanently
plugged to their full depth using CONCRESIVE 2200 or
similar.
Injection to stop water ingress:
CONCRESIVE 1335 will stop the flow of water as it foams
and cures. When the water ingress stops, start injection
with CONCRESIVE 1320. Sufficient CONCRESIVE 1320
should be pumped through and out of the crack to ensure all
water and dust is removed.
Allow 48 hours for the concrete to dry if CONCRESIVE 1315
is to be used as the secondary resin. Blowing out with
nitrogen may assist.

3.

As with all chemical products, care should be taken during


use and storage to avoid contact with eyes mouth, skin and
foodstuffs (which can also be tainted with vapour until
product fully cured or dried). Treat splashes to eyes and
skin immediately. If accidentally ingested, seek immediate
medical attention. Keep away from children and animals.
Reseal containers after use.

Field service, where provided, does not constitute


supervisory responsibility. For additional information contact
your local Degussa representative.

It is strongly recommended that the services of an


injection specialist are used for Method 2.

Safety precautions

Note

Watchpoint

1.

Store under cover out of direct sunlight and protect from


extremes of temperature. In tropical climates (ambient
temperature of over 35C) the product must be stored in an
air conditioned environment. CONCRESIVE 1320 & 1335
should be kept in cool boxes preferably bedded in ice, to
extend the working time of the product.

Before sealing or injecting any materials, it is important


to ascertain why and how the cracks originated, this will
significantly affect the selection process of repair
materials.
All cracks should be thoroughly cleaned to ensure a
strong bond develops between interfaces.
Equipment should be cleaned immediately following use
with cleaning solvent.

Estimation

Degussa reserves the right to have the true cause of any


difficulty determined by accepted test methods.
