When Using Injection Rubber Is a Way Better Choice Than Acrylic Gel
#009 of Concrete Injection Made Easy Podcast. One complaint I often hear from clients who have ordered concrete leak sealing procedures in which an acrylic gel was used is that under some conditions, the expansion joint leaks again. This problem happens typically because of dry weather, which causes acrylic gels dry out and shrink. And when acrylic gels dry, they lose their elasticity, and ability to adhere to concrete walls. And that’s why water starts leaking. From the #009 episode of Concrete Injection Made Easy podcast you will find out:What are the best areas of application of injection rubber any why?What are the main properties of an injection rubber?When can acrylic gel be used, and when should it rather be used injection rubber?Injection rubber shrinks to its original volume, but not less. What's in it for me?How to apply an injection rubber?Expansion joint sealing relies on swelling rather than adhesion to concrete. Important especially after several swelling/deswelling cycles.How to use re-injected injection hoses and why we have discussed it?What made me choose an injection rubber in one of my latest projects in Wrocław?Concrete Injection Made Easy giveaways:One is a 5 percent discount on HydroBloc 570 injection rubber.The second one is a 30-minute remote consultation by phone or Skype with Mateusz or Michaela.

Sealing Expansion Joints with Dennis Wagner of Normet
In today’s episode of Concrete Injection Made Easy, I discuss sealing expansion joints with my guest Dennis Wagner, Product Manager of Injection Products at Normet. We explore a common problem on the job site, which is typically caused by mistakes with installing water stops, namely leaking expansion joints.When it comes to injecting resin to fix leaking expansion joints, there are three options: one, injecting into the structure. Two, injecting between the structures, meaning into the expansion joint itself. And three—injecting outside the structure. When to use which is of key consideration whenever setting out to repair a leak.Episode notes and details available at http://inblock.com.pl/en/podcast/004Today’s episode of Concrete Injection Made Easy gives you key tips and tricks to help you choose the right method for sealing a leaking expansion joint.Make sure you hit subscribe if you haven't already and sit back listening.
