In case you have small and spasmodic leaks Xypex and Drylok are the products that cause waterproofing and avoid water sealing. Xypex is 2-4 % costly than Drylok.
It enlarges and dries up to convert into a part of your wall.
Xypex on the other hand, behaves like a waterproof application of concrete that will bound with the surface. Xypex needs moisture to make a waterproof crystalline structure, and even if these have small leakages these are going to cover themselves as it utilizes moisture.
Repairing failings in decanted concrete walls:
Cracks and pipes going through the concrete along with form tie rods are the defects that demand attention and maintenance. A crack in the concrete wall implies a potential source of water going all the way through the wall. Following are the two solutions that can be explored and executed for repairing the defects in the concrete wall:
- DRYLOK Fast Plug is the most effective solution for sealing cracks in the masonry that are unaffected by the structural or thermal movement.
- An inoculation of construction-grade epoxy penetrating the crack all the way in and out is another promising cure for the defects in the concrete wall.
Self-service for repairing purposes is dependable only if you have polyurethane systems and kits of epoxy at your expense. It is always preferable and more appropriate to get professional help for repairing the defects in the concrete walls.
