Infiltration and Leak Sealing
We have a range of products and delivery systems capable of effectively dealing with most types of infiltration and exfiltration in any substrate and construction type, providing a waterproof long-term ‘fix’ to the problem.
From the smallest leak to a ‘gusher’ we have the products and expertise to deal with infiltration problems with a rapid response service nationwide.
We have extensive experience of and have successfully dealt with infiltration problems in many situations and across many industries; e.g. sewage treatment plants, manholes and pump stations, chemical plants, food processing plants, breweries, digesters, lift shafts, basements and cellars etc.
We have a wide range of high quality proven materials that can handle any eventuality including single and dual component expanding closed cell hydrophobic polyurethane resins which are injected into the substrate / structure then expand and block off the water flow permanently.
We have polyurethane injection resins that permanently seal cracks, fissures and failed joints in the structure and remain flexible to allow further movement. These dual component, flexible, high strength resins are injected to track along fine cracks and cure to a permanent flexible seal, leaving a sealed substrate ready for coating.
Many manholes, chambers, bunds and pipe systems suffer from infiltration through the cement joints where the cement has perished or been eroded by chemicals or acid produced by the presence of hydrogen sulphide.
This is especially true of the older brick manholes and chambers. In the case of dirty water / sewage systems surface water leaking into the system overcharges the treatment plant with clean water that does not need treating and therefore reduces the capacity of the treatment works and increases the operating costs.
In the case of potable water infiltration can lead to increasing treatment and expense before the required purity standard is reached and the water can be sent to the distribution network.
