Repair Types PolyFlex Expansion Joint Injection
Issues Leaks

Project Description

This water treatment facility also need expansion joint repair of tunnel sections.

Expansion joint repair:
Failure of waterproofing expansion joint rubber inserts in between tunnel sections causes severe water infiltration and joint failure. Choices of repairs in these types of failures are quite limited.

We have applications capable of injecting thin joints to repair failed tunnel section expansion joints. Through specialized injection ports, PolyFlex is supplied into the joint.  When cured, PolyFlex turns into soft rubber. It has tremendous adhesion power capable of binding to concrete, and displacing any accumulated water, not allowing it to re-enter. The concrete slabs can still expand and contract due to the nature of the material injected. At the same time, such injection seals any cracks, preventing any future leaks from recurring.
