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
The Prime Line WS injectable hose system is a range of specially designed PVC injection hoses for the protection of horizontal and vertical construction and cold joints. These systems are used to seal and waterproof potential and active leaks in below-grade reinforced construction, foundations and tunnels. The double-jacketed injection hose consists of an inner core with big slots for the injection material as well as an outer PVC sleeve with perforations offset to the slots on the inner core. This design prevents fresh concrete paste from entering or blocking the injection hose system.
Prime Line WS injection hoses are specially designed to allow for even distribution of the grout and are both durable and robust. Prime Line WS injectable hose systems are suitable for with all PU//EP resins acrylates, gels and fine and microfine cement. Prime Line WS is suitable for Prime Resins acrylates such as AR 800 as well as PR10 ACLM acrylamide.
