Protecting concrete usually means shielding it from the elements of nature or from harsh manmade chemicals. But it’s not just concrete that needs such protection. Corrugated metal pipe, steel surfaces, material hoppers, rail cars and masonry all can come in contact with corrosive or abrasive materials or harsh conditions.
The geotechnical needs of DOTs and other agencies responsible for roads and bridges are vast. Issues include: Culvert repair Soil stabilization Void filling Concrete slab lifting Sinkhole remediation Slope control Slough control in tunneling
Prime Resins makes chemical grouts for stopping leaks in a variety of structures. By analyzing the structure type and the size of the leak, you can determine which product works best for the scenario. A Prime Resins technical consultant can advise you on the best product and approach for your situation.
The first step to choosing the right product is determining whether you have a weeping leak (hairline crack) or a gushing leak. With weeping or small leaks, a major focus is on the viscosity, or thickness, of the resin. Low viscosity resins easily penetrate the cracks to ensure all leaking areas are repaired. When encountering a gushing leak, quick reaction or ‘set’ times are important.
Typical structures include:
Dams, nuclear plant cooling basins, public aquarium tanks, building foundations, water and sanitary sewer lines. Prime Resins products seal leaks in all these locations.
Uncontrolled infiltration and inflow — I&I — is a budget killer for water authorities. Chemical grouting is a cost-effective, time-tested solution to controlling I&I in manholes and pipes.
