Project Description

Expansion Joints

Normally, when there is a failure of waterproofing membrane over the surface of expansion joints, the entire membrane must be removed and reinstalled. The excavation required by the traditional repair method is quite costly, but can be avoided with the use of PolyFlex expansion joint application. 

What we do is drastically different: we drill injection ports and inject our specialized liquid material which turns into soft rubber. It has tremendous adhesion power capable of binding cracked 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 materials injected. At the same time, such injection seals any crack in the membrane, preventing any future leaks from recurring.

This type of application method has been proven to create permanent waterproofing with a high degree of success and long-lasting results. Application from within the structure will avoid unnecessary expenses of top-side repair. 

Technical Details

PolyFlex
PolyFlex is a liquid injected flexible material used to repair expansion joints. It is designed to allow expansion and contraction of expansion joints up to 180%. Injecting PolyFlex completely removes any collected water and repairs membrane cracks. This type of repair prevents hydraulic pockets from reoccurring and contributes to long-lasting waterproofing results.  Since it is soft and flexible, it binds itself perfectly to any concrete surface and does not delaminate.

Application of PolyFlex from the negative side (from inside of a parking garage or an elevator shaft) reduces costs by 60%, when compared to the traditional method of repair.
