    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

         

        Subsequent horizontal waterproofing of masonry

        Drilling channel must be free of drill dust.

        Priming for protection against the effect of water from behind

        The substrate must be clean and free of oil, grease and release agents.

        Surface improvement

        The substrate must be clean and free of oil, grease and release agents.

      • Preparations

        For injection in a low-pressure procedure, the wall surface must be plugged with Kiesol and waterproofing grout to at least 30 cm above and below the row of boreholes.

         

        Subsequent horizontal waterproofing of masonry

        Production of boreholes: Single row, diameter 12 - 30 mm, spacing 10 - 12.5 cm, angle of inclination approx. 45°, borehole depth up to approx. 5 cm from end of wall.

        U2_HZ_11

        Pre-inject borehole suspension into hollow masonry.

        Wait 7 days before carrying out further work.

        Re-drill filled boreholes.

        For injection under pressure, plug the masonry surface with Kiesol and waterproofing grout to a width of 50 cm in the region of the series of boreholes.

    • Application
      • By brush/ Bore hole saturation / Pressure injection / Low pressure spraying
      • Application temperature: min. 5 °C max. 35 °C
      • Application requirements

        Temperature of the material, air and substrate: from min. +5 °C to max. +35 °C

      • Subsequent horizontal waterproofing of masonry

        - Under gravity (moisture penetration < 80%):

        Using a suitable vessel, e.g. Kiesol Metering Cartridge (417301), fill (multiple times if necessary) until saturated.

        - Low pressure (moisture penetration < 95%):

        Inject using suitable injection equipment and injection packers.

         

        Priming for protection against the effect of water from behind

        Apply the material in sections, under gravity and without misting in the flow coating procedure, horizontally from top to bottom.

         

        Surface improvement

        Apply the material in sections, under gravity and without misting in the flow coating procedure, horizontally from top to bottom.

        Repeat the procedure (wet-on-wet) until no more material uptake is observed.

    • Application instructions
      • Take appropriate measures to protect adjacent building elements and materials that should not come into contact with the product.

         

        Subsequent horizontal waterproofing of masonry

        After injection, fill the boreholes with borehole suspension.

        Then, apply surface waterproofing to at least 30 cm above and below the row of boreholes. Include adjacent components if necessary.

         

        Priming for protection against the effect of water from behind

        Immediately remove the product in excess.

        Perform subsequent operations wet-on-wet, within the reaction time.

         

        Surface improvement

        Protect freshly treated surfaces from driving rain, wind, sunlight and condensation.

        Not suitable for use as a horizontal impervious layer for porous concrete and loam building materials

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • By brush/ Bore hole saturation / Pressure injection / Low pressure spraying
      • Brush, surface sprayer, airless spraying equipment, pouring vessel, low-pressure injection apparatus Additional equipment according to tool programme

      • Clean tools immediately after use with water.

        Ensure that any residue from cleaning is disposed of correctly.

    • Storage / shelf life
      • Shelf-life 36 months
      • Store frost-free and cool / protect for moisture / close containers
      • At least 36 months in unopened, original containers stored cool, dry and protected from frost.

    • Usage
      • Depending on the application / m²
      • Subsequent horizontal waterproofing: Approx. 1.5 kg/m per 10 cm wall thickness (can vary significantly depending on porosity of masonry) Priming: Approx. 0.1 - 0.3 kg/m² (dilute 1:1 with water) Surface improvement: Approx. 0.2 - 0.4 kg/m²

    • General information
      • Not suitable for improving surfaces where higher requirements are placed on appearance.

        The relevant test certificates must be observed when planning and carrying out work.

        The applicable regulations and legal requirements must be observed.

        Information on planning injection processes with and processing certified injection materials against capillary moisture transport can be found in WTA Leaflet 4-10-15 and must be taken into account.
