DENEPOX™ LM

Two-component flexible epoxy injection resin for concrete injections, and can be used in either dry or wet conditions

Product Description

Pre-weighted two-component epoxy resin, which cures into a flexible compound. Suitable for applications in dry or wet structures with slight movements, where a flexible product is required.

  • A-component : epoxy resin.
  • B-component : polyamine hardener.

Product Advantages

  • Insensitive to humidity
  • Cures in damp/wet environment
  • Deep penetration in the cracks
  • Very good adhesion: exceeds concrete cohesion
  • Solvent free
  • Cured DENEPOX™ LM is resistant to acids, alkalis, oils, greases and petroleum derivatives (*)

(*) For chemical resistance please contact your local GCP representative

Field of Application

  • Low pressure injection for flexible bonding of cracks and microcracks in dry or wet concrete
  • Bonding
  • Sealing of porous low density concrete
  • Flexible joints in floors
  • DENEPOX™ LM is not suited for applications in contact with moving water

Application

1. Surface preparation

  • Surfaces to be repaired or sealed must be clean and sound. The concrete surface must be free of dust, laitance, sealers, grease or any other contaminants that might influence bonding of the resin to the concrete.

2. Injection ports

  • Entry ports for injecting should be approved devices spaced at appropriate intervals to accomplish full penetration of the resin into the cracks or voids.

Drilled ports

  • Drilling of cracks for packers needs to be executed in accordance with local regulations. After drilling the hole, insert packer

Glued ports (plastic or metal)

  • The injection ports should be fixed to the surface of the crack with MULTITEK™ Adhesive SDW.
  • Apply a layer of MULTITEK™ Adhesive SDW, polyester paste or fast curing cement to the surface of the crack.

3. Mixing

  • Mix the pre-weighted quantities of resin (A-component) and hardener (B-component) with a low speed mixer (300rpm) until a homogeneous liquid is obtained. Never mix more material than the quantity that can be used up within 20 minutes.
  • Mix ratio A/B: 1/1.1 by weight.

4. Injection

  • The crack can be injected with a manual (single piston) pump or a mechanical (single or double piston) injection pump.
  • Uncured material and equipment should be cleaned with Washing Agent Eco.

Appearance

Pre-weighted kit

A-component:  Transparent liquid
B-component: Yellow transparent liquid
Colour: Amber transparent

Consumption

Has to be estimated by the engineer or operator and depends on width and depth of the cracks and voids.
