Nitocote EP405 is a solvent-free epoxy resin used for coating and lining concrete structures such as silos. It provides a non-toxic protective coating that resists corrosion, abrasion and chemical attack. It can be applied to mild steel and concrete without the need for a primer. It is available in either white or blue and meets the requirements of the Water Regulations Advisory Service (WRAS).
Supercast SWX is a hydrophilic swellable waterstop sealant for sealing problematic details such as sealing around pipe penetrations, steelwork penetrations, between concrete slabs or pre-cast concrete units. The SWX comes in foils and is applied with a foil gun / barrel gun. The SWX is applied between two surfaces and when water comes into contact with it, the SWX expands / swells creating an even tighter seal between the two surfaces. For further information see Waterbars and Waterstops Page
Sikadur Combiflex System comprises adhesives and a proprietary elastic strip used to overband failed joint seals and bridge cracks. It adheres to most common building materials and can be used in many different difficult situations, even when continued movement in the structure is anticipated. The system has DWI approval for use in contact with potable water.
Arcon supply a number of injection resins, pouring grade resins, sealants and mortars that can be used to repair cracks in concrete structures. For hairline cracks on either horizontal or vertical (depending upon the situation) a resin injection system is most appropriate, see Injection Resins Page
For wider cracks, where leakage is a problem - either from outside in or inside out - Feb Waterplug can be applied to live leaks and sets within 3 minutes to seal the leak. If a DWI approved product is required NatCem Waterstop can be used in a similar way.
