How To Use

The steps depicted below are suggestions in case the wall's level of damage is already rather high. All joints need to be visible to achieve a thorough joint sealing. The old, scruffy and heavily salt loaded interior plaster should be removed but a revision of the joints is not needed in every case, it depends on the object.

Prepare the wall:
Use a jackhammer to remove the interior plaster completely, brush and clean the wall.

Anwendung - Schritt 2 EN

Renew the joints:
Expose the joints approx. 1 – 1,5 cm deep and renew them with sulfate resistant mortar.

Anwendung - Schritt 3 EN

Create drillings for horizontal damp-proof barrier: Approx. 17 cm distance (6 drillings / m), approx. 30 cm deep, 45° diagonally downwards to the foundation. Blow out drill holes.

Drillings for area injections / use for traversal moisture penetration: Horizontal and vertical distances of 20 cm. Depending on the stone size, the joints may be drilled horizontally.

  • Now the inner rubber pressure disk rests on the gel of the cartridge and the spring tension delivers the necessary amount of primary pressure to transport the gel

Anwendung - Schritt 7a und 8a EN

Gel injection using the Do-It-Yourself press:

  • Click the connecting sleeve on the plastic packer, start pumping
  • Per stroke approx. 1 shot glass of gel is injected
  • When all cavities and the drill hole are filled, back pressure builds up in the drill hole, the valve at the end of the hose opens, gel starts leaking
  • This means: Stop, use next plastic packer
