We use a high pressure pump to inject the waterproofing membrane into your walls or floors.
There are many methods that are used to treat water ingress and some do not use a high pressure system.
We chose a high pressure system because our experience has shown us that with high pressures the product penetrates much deeper and further laterally into the substrate than when no pressure is used. We inject our product up to a pressure of 6000psi.
4. Water entering through cold joints (wall floor joint). .
5. Water rising through slab expansion joints. .
6. Water entering through tunnel roofs. .
7. Water entering through pipe penetrations.
What is Injection Waterproofing?
Injection waterproofing involves using a pump to push the waterproofing solution into wet masonry to fill the small cavities inside your wall which will eliminate the capillary action and saturation of water through your walls and floors.
Continued ingress of water through bricks, concrete, Dincel and Rediwall can reduce structural strength, have an ugly appearance & damage internal flooring & furniture.
Injection waterproofing is designed to make bricks, blocks, dincel, & concrete impermeable to water.
Doing this creates a new barrier inside the substrate that water cannot pass.
1. Injection to create an external sheet of waterproofing to protect the wall from water ingress entering through the wall from the outside.
2. Injection into failing mortar to seal cracks between the bricks or blocks of the wall its self.
3. Injection into the cold joint (the joint between the wall and floor) to stop water passing under the wall. This method is also commonly used for failing Dincel and Rediwall.
4. Cementitious based negative pressure waterproofing membrane applied to create a inner shield on the wall and/or cold joints. This method is often used on shotcrete walls or walls with a constant flow of water
5. Injecting through a slab floor to create a blanket of waterproofing under the whole slab to prevent the vertical rise of water through slab’s cracks and expansion joints.
Injection for flowing water ingress generally takes 1-2 days for residential work and jobs can run for up to a week with water ingress on construction sites depending on the length or square metres of the wall(s) that need to be repaired.
