Leaking crack repair with Epoxy Waterproofer

Leaking Basement crack?

Epoxy Waterproofer contains 100% solids and is applied from a thin brush application up to a 1/8th inch thick cladding capable of withstanding hydrostatic pressure and stopping radon gas migration in a leaking basement.  Cracks and patches can be repaired and made waterproof by adding clean silica sand to Epoxy Waterproofer.

This is a 2 part 100% solids epoxy that cures clear or can be pigments to a variety of colors by adding a color pack.  Use on interior/exterior foundations, precast concrete tanks, stone, potable water tanks, ponds, waterfalls, pools etc.

Leaking Crack Repair

Epoxy Waterproofer has been brush applied over a crack which has been filled with hydraulic cement.  If the crack opening is larger than 1/8″ pack with hydraulic cement.  Allow hydraulic cement to set for 15 minutes. Mix a small amount of Epoxy Waterproofer, enough to cover the hydraulic cement filled crack.  Brush apply a liberal amount over the crack with a minimum of 1/2″ overlapping the crack. Once the Epoxy Waterproofer has set 24 hrs this crack is finished and will withstand tons of water without leaking.  Color packs can be added to the clear material in order to better match the surrounding area.

Stain Resistant Masonry Waterproofing

oil stain protection

Oil repellent that blocks staining

Any exposed porous surface such a concrete, brick or natural stone is susceptible to staining and discoloration. Stains can come from water, oil, organic and food based substances.  Our customers expect their masonry to stay clean and pristine and often turn to clear sealers to provide protection and reduce maintenance costs.  However not all sealers are the same when it comes to oil and staining.  Many of the penetrating type sealers are silane /siloxane sealers (silicone based). These penetrating sealers are effective in sealing out water but do not protect against oil based stains from petroleum products or from fat grease found in foods.   Acrylic based sealers can offer oil stain protection but are “film forming” and darken the surface and often times have a glossy finish.

New Technology

The Chargar Corporation has introduced a new and unique masonry sealer formulated with patented stain blocking resins prevents staining on surfaces as well as water and oil repellency.  Ultimate Stain Repellent has unique qualities, doesn’t change the appearance of the surface and is not a film forming type sealer.  It resists motor oil, transmission fluids, diesel fuel, wine, ketchup, grease from grilling foods, soft drinks.  Many sealers do a great job repelling water and moisture intrusion but fail at blocking the buildup of oil and staining type soils.

Ultimate Stain Repellent penetrates into porous materials, creating a long-lasting barrier that “locks-out” oils, water and soil. This barrier forces liquids to bead up on the surface, allowing them to be picked up more easily, and preventing them from causing a stain. The penetrating sealer will not only provide improved chemical and oil resistance, but it will also prevent dusting, spalling and inhibit efflorescence.

How to stop water from a leaking crack in my basement

leaking crack in basement

Traditionally, basement waterproofing always involved excavating the foundation; a costly undertaking indeed.  Today there are a number of ways to fix wet basements from within the basement itself – a much less expensive (and less destructive) proposition.

There are many ways to stop ground water from entering a finished basement through a leaking crack, but none of them are as simple as using our Epoxy Waterproofer.  Just brush it over a crack, allow it to set and you’re done, no chipping  and no patching. Wide cracks can be sealed by mixing clean silica sand into the epoxy to make an epoxy mortar that will stay in place while it cures.  Watch our video to see how simple it is.
