Concrete injection: a watertight guarantee on dry concrete walls without moisture problems

If you have concrete walls in your home or business premises, you may one day suffer from cracks or worse. Further on in this article we will discuss the different causes of this. As a company specialized in moisture control, AquaConsult is specialized in concrete injection in concrete walls where moisture problems are such as:

  • Water permeability of the concrete wall
  • Leaks through the concrete
  • Condensation on concrete walls
  • Mould formation on the concrete
  • Kimnaad

 

How do moisture problems occur in concrete walls?

Cracks in concrete can occur due to various working forces or due to a poor bilge seam (where concrete basement floor and basement walls meet). Usually the bilge seam is not installed, badly installed or worn. Other causes can be: a large building weight, shrinkage during curing, movements in the ground, groundwater fluctuations and thermal influences (expansion or shrinkage). If the tension is greater than the resistance of the concrete, cracks will develop which can also cause moisture problems. As a result, rainwater from outside or groundwater, for example, is no longer well retained.

Technical information about AquaConsult concrete injections

AquaConsult uses its concrete injections to make concrete walls cork dry again. We only inject the robust ARTIPUR INJECT FLEX: a product designed to seal joints and cracks in concrete structures, even in the event of leaks with high water flow and pressure. After this procedure, no drop of water can penetrate the interior space through the concrete wall.

ARTIPUR INJECT FLEX is a 1-component polyurethane injection resin that is catalyzed with ARTIPUR CAT FLEX. The dosage of the catalyst determines the polymerisation time. In liquid phase, this product is a yellowish, transparent liquid that, in contact with water, cures rapidly (depending on the ambient temperature and the dosage of the catalyst) to a tough, flexible, closed-cell polyurethane foam.

On the basis of a few questions, we can obtain a personalised price calculation from one of the AquaConsult moisture expert construction engineers. Because the price depends on many factors, prices can only be calculated on a case-by-case basis and there is little point in communicating general rates.
