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
AR 870 acrylate is our latest product designed for leak sealing in concrete structures. Hydrophilic in nature, this acrylate product, which is a gel when activated, is an excellent choice for:
Water control in:
AR 870 is a multi-component system developed using an advanced non-toxic aqueous solution of multifunctional acrylate and methacrylate monomers. The components include the AR 870 resin, Primeset TEA, Primeset SP and water. The monomers are reacted in the presence of water and the catalysts to produce various elastomeric gel consistencies. In wet, or dry conditions, the weight of the gel increases, or decreases, in a reversible manner.
AR 870 – Solution of acrylate and methacrylate monomers
Primeset TEA – Liquid activator to AR 870 resin side to vary the set time
Primeset SP – Powder initiator added to water side
