CHEM-VOID

Two Component, Low Exotherm, Long Pot Life Injection Epoxy System for Concrete Wide Cracks Applications

CHEM-VOID is a two component, solvent free, medium viscosity low exothermic and long pot life epoxy injection system. CHEM-VOID is designed to be injected into wide cracks and voids in the concrete.

Both resin and hardener components are formulated and pigmented to grey color. The products meet ASTM C 881 Type I and II, Grade 2, Class B and C.

  • Long pot life suitable for one component injection pump system.
  • Suitable for injecting into wider cracks in concrete.
  • Excellent bonding properties
  • Extremely high mechanical properties.
  • Low exotherm and shrink free curing.
  • Moisture insensitive.
  • Solvent free
  • Good chemical resistance.

APPLICATION

Limitations:

Minimum substrate temperature + 5°C
Maximum permissible moisture content of substrate 5 %
Minimum temperature for mixing and application + 5°C

 

Pre-treatment of Substrate: the substrate must be sound, dry, clean, and free from oil, grease, etc. All loose material and laitance should be removed by mechanical means. Steel should be shot blasted to bright metal.

 

Mixing Ratio: Component ‘A’: Component ‘B’ = 2: 1 parts by volume.

 

Select a suitable dry, clean container for mixing. Pour both components ‘A’ and ‘B’ completely and mix thoroughly using a low speed electric drill with mixing paddle.  Mix from side to side and top to bottom until a fully homogenous mixture is obtained.

 

Mixing Time: approximately 3-5 minutes Mix only quantities, which can be processed within the pot life.

 

Pot Life: the prepared mix should be used up immediately at least within 40 minutes at 25°C.

 

Injection: inject CHEM-VOID through the injection packers after the wide cracks have been sealed. Allow Chem-Void to cure for 48 hours before packers and Crack Sealing Compound is removed.

 

Curing: observe standard curing practice for the newly placed concrete or hydraulic mortars.

 

Cleaning: tools and equipment contaminated with Chem-Void should be cleaned up immediately with Blended solvents.

STORAGE

The product can be stored in a dry cool place for one year in unopened original packaging. Do not store below +10°C or in direct sunlight. Prior to the application of Chem-Void it should be maintained at approximately 25°C for at least 24 hours, in order to have consistent workability, curing and better finishing.

SAFETY

After full cure, CHEM-VOID is physiologically harmless. Keep the resin and hardener away from the eyes mouth and skin.  Do not breathe in the vapors.  The uncured mixture can cause irritation of the skin.  For best protection, wear rubber or plastic gloves.  In case of contamination, wipe away resin or hardener immediately from the skin using paper towels and then wash with soap and water or hand cleaning detergent. Empty resin and hardener cans must be destroyed.   Under no circumstances use them to store food or drink even if they have been thoroughly cleaned.
