Mineral material

In case of crack repair with cement suspension and cement paste, cracked structural elements are repaired by means of non-positive injection. The cracks are injected so that no more water can penetrate after the injection process is completed. The injection material forms a protection against the penetration of aggressive substances and prevents corrosion of the reinforcement. The load-bearing capacity of the structural elements is restored by the frictional connection of the crack flanks.

Aims of application

  • Sealing and filling of cracks, hollows and voids
  • Creation of frictional connection of cracked building components
  • Creation of a connection guaranteeing tensile and compression strength
  • Masonry consolidation and stabilisation

Filling material

  • Injection mortar
  • Cement paste
  • Cement suspension

Demands on injection packer

  • The material of the packers (parts of packer) must be appropriate for the used injection material
  • Safe retention in the structural element during the injection at pressures depending on the injection method
  • Corrosion resistance of the parts remaining in the building
  • Possibility of shutting off
  • Cross section adjusted to flow properties of injection material
  • No reduction of cross section in the packer and connection system

Suitable objects

  • Residential buildings, industrial structures
  • Buildings of masonry and concrete
  • Natural stone buildings
  • Historic and listed buildings
  • Civil engineering and water engineering
  • Canal-, harbour-, and river engineering

Adhesive Packer

Advantages

  • Injection with low- and high pressure method
            » The special material caracteristics of the adhesive packer support the adhesive bond between the adhesive and adhesive surface of the packer.
               The adhesive packers resist to high injection pressures depending on the adhesion with the soil.
  • Saving of time and material
            » With the Klebfix (approx. 6 g) the adhesive is applied on the adhesive surface of the packer
            » The sealing material is spread on the crack surface
 

Application range

  • On non-wet surfaces
  • Structural elements with dense reinforcement
  • Pre-stressed concrete
  • For a width of crack from approx. 0.2 mm with filling material cement suspension

Placing of the adhesive packers

  • Roughen the surface on both sides of the crack depending on structural element, remove any debris or loose particles, dust etc.
  • Distance between packers depends on thickness of structural element (normally: thickness of structural element = distance between packers)
  • Keep the injection channel free by driving a greased steel pin into the crack
  • Seal the crack with sealing material, but stop at the end of crack for deseration and control of filling level
  • Remove all steel pins and screw a locking tappet on the the packer, open it and start injection
  • Inject from bottom to top
  • Close locking tappet when air and filling material is coming out of the adjacend packer
  • Continue injection with the next packer
  • Re-inject each packer within the pot life of the packer
  • Once the injection material is hardened remove the packer and sealing material
  • Recondition surface

Information

  • A test injection on the object is recommended before application
  • Pre-wet the crack or void before starting injection with mineral filling material

Bore packer

Range of application

  • Dry and humid structural elements
  • For the filling of cavaties
  • Low- and high pressure injection into structures

Demands on the injection packers

  • Compatibility of materials (packer components) with fillers used
  • Reliable fixing in the component at the process-related injection pressures
  • Corrosion resistance of the parts remaining in the structure
  • Possibility of shutting off

Placing of the injection packers

  • Packer distance depends on component thickness (½ component thickness = packer distance)
  • Drill alternately at an angle of 45° to the crack to hit the crack in the middle of the component (depending on the object)
  • Clean (e. g. with compressed air) and prepare the boreholes, depending on the filler set and clamp packer (in the case of dry cracks, prewet crack flanks)
  • Close crack with insulating material, leave crack end free for venting and level control, at the highest point for vertical cracks
  • Inject the packer until the crack filler emerges from the next packer, reinject each packer within the processing time of the crack filler
  • After the injection the injection packers are removed or non-corrosive parts can remain in the building (agreement with the builder required)
  • Seal boreholes
 


Plugging

  • The insulation prevents the filler from escaping during injection
  • Repair of leaks with fast-reacting substances
