Mono-component Sealant compound, permanently plastic, slightly warm (+10% in volume in contact with water), for waterproofing underground holes, through which one or many wires and/or technical pipes pass, in masonry structures. It is extruded around the cables passing using specific dosing gun for 600 ml bags, and then covered with thixotropic mortar REPAR TIX G2.
Shelf-life: 24 months
Use wearing protective gloves
Temperature of use: 0 / +50 °C
Hydroexpansive product: +10 %
Density: 1.20 kg/dm³
Pot-life: 90 min
Min. recommended thickness: 8 cm
- It does not harden over time, while maintaining its original plasticity.
- It is a non-toxic material.
- It is easy to apply, it adheres both to dry and wet surfaces. Usable even in the presence of slight water seepage.
- It expands slightly in contact with water (+10% ), thereby sealing any losses that may arise due to subsidence or vibration.
Waterproof sealing for drilled holes in walls of concrete, bricks, tufa, etc., which are crossed by passing electrical cables and/or technical tubes in general (gas, plumbing, etc.).
Dust, soil, sand, loose parts, rust, and layers of paint of the pipes and old deteriorated sealant material must be removed with pressurised water or brushing, before applying the compound. The inner surface of the tube/hole containing the passing cables should be damp or wet.
To limit the thickness of SYNTECH STOPAQ, it is recommended to insert a barrier of polyethylene foam kerbs with an appropriate diameter (FILTENE FONDOGIUNTO).
SYNTECH STOPAQ will be extruded into the hole to be sealed, taking care that the paste encompasses all the passing cables. Compact, with the help of a wooden handle or the like, the paste just extruded against the polyethylene "barrier" previously positioned to seal all the gaps. The depth of clogging made with SYNTECH STOPAQ must be at least 8-10 cm.
Smooth the outer surface of SYNTECH STOPAQ, with special spatula or gloved hand, compacting it well. Finally, close the "mouth" outside of the tube/hole with REPAR TIX G2, minimum 2 cm thick, smoothing around the cables with a spatula.
- Apply by hand
- Dispensing gun
- Prefabricated concrete
- Mixed walls (bricks and stones)
- Stone walls
- Rock walls
In situations of low temperature (usually in winter) the cartridges of SYNTECH STOPAQ must be heated in water to +35°C, for about a quarter of an hour, before being used ("bain marie" heating).
For applications in steel pipes, provide a suitable layer of SYNTECH RGS epoxy primer on the surfaces that will be filled with REPAR TIX G2.
