    ·          liquid silicification preparation of deep – seated action

    ·          for use in conservatory works in heritage buildings as well as in contemporary construction

    ·          used for waterproofing and refurbishment of buildings in plinth zone as well as foundations and basements, indoors and outdoors, in case of lack or faulty horizontal and/or vertical insulation

    ·          can be used for surface as well as structural strengthening

    ·          for execution of horizontal watertight membrane preventing the substrate material from capillary water rising

    ·          for use with gravity or low – pressure injection method

    ·          recommended for absorptive, porous mineral substrates, made of brick or stone, of dampness up to 80% and low or average salinity level (other cases require initial wall drying in the planned injection zone and desalination actions execution)

    ·          very high substrate penetration abilities – the preparation has low viscosity and low molecular weight construction, thanks to which quickly fills the substrate material pores

    ·          forms membrane within the whole wall cross section without the surface sealing – keeps the substrate vapour permeability and ability of free substrate evaporation

    ·          strengthens the substrate material – by gel accumulation in the pores during the silicification process

    ·          can be used as a priming preparation for substrate priming before the use of mineral mortars forming the surface waterproofing

    SUBSTRATE PREPARATION

    Go top

    The method of substrate preparation should be individually adjusted for each object, depending on the strength and condition of the substrate material and its historic value. Damp and saline plasters should be removed up to the height of ca. 80 cm above the highest visible salinity and/or dampness line. Clean the surface of dust, saline efflorescence, mortar remains and poorly adhering wall elements. If need to neutralize the construction salts. use PREPARATION FOR SALT NEUTRALISATION PS, according to its technical data sheet. Carve out the masonry mortar from joints up to depth of 20 mm and re-fill with a cement – based mortar, e.g. MORTAR FOR FILLING CAVITIES IN BRICK AND NATURAL STONE CG, without wall facing. Before injection, cracks, cavities and empty spaces should be filled with a cement – based mortar, e.g. RENOVATION BASE COAT PLASTER TRP (it is advisable to drill sample holes in order to determine the wall construction and structure).

    APPLICATION

    Go top

    The technology of works during injection and reconstruction of the horizontal insulation depends on the planned technical solution (range of use), current groundwater conditions, wall thickness, substrate dampness and salinity level.

    Recommendations for holes drilling

    The holes intended for the introduction of the SILICIFICATION PREPARATION KS into the wall structure should be 10 - 30 mm in diameter and executed in one row, with axial spacing 10 - 12.5 cm. The holes should keep a slope of ca. 25°, in case of thin walls the slope angle can be slightly larger, in case of thicker walls the angle should be smaller. The drilling thickness should be chosen in order to make the hole ca. 5 cm shallower than the total wall thickness. In case of very thick walls (> 60 cm) it is advisable to drill holes alternately, in both wall sides.

    1.     Reconstruction of horizontal insulation with the injection method from outdoors, without excavation execution.

    -       Partition type: external walls, foundation or basement walls, partly earth – sheltered

    -       Water conditions: groundwater table below the foundation level, not – dumping groundwater (infiltration), pressure – less, capillary dampness

    -       Execute the injection holes from outdoors, above the ground level. Clean the holes of dust with compressed air. Directly before the injection wet the substrate with water and execute initial silicification with the KS preparation diluted with water in ratio 1:1. In case of weathered walls of low strength waterproofing, apply additional coat made of ATLAS WODER S mortar within the planned injection site in order to limit the possibility of uncontrolled leakage of the injection preparation beside the walls. Pressure – less injection (gravity) should be executed with the use of funnels providing constant and steady substrate impregnation. Stop the works after full impregnation of wall within each drilled hole. In case of pressure injection, place the injectors in the holes and inject the preparation with constant pressure of 4 - 8 bars. After injection, float the holes with a cement – based mortar, e.g. RENOVATION BASE COAT PLASTER TRP. Within the external wall plinth and on the internal basement walls apply the renovation plasters ATLAS ZŁOTY WIEK, depending on the wall salinity. Depending on the expected aesthetic effect the plaster surface can be finished with a properly chosen conservatory finishing coat or Silicate Renovation Paint S-02.

    2.       Reconstruction of horizontal insulation with the injection method from outdoors, without excavation execution, with the use of the damp proofing plaster HYDROTYNK U.

    -       Partition type: external walls, foundation or basement walls, partly earth – sheltered

    -       Water conditions: groundwater table above the foundation level, groundwater temporarily dumping (infiltration), pressure – less

    -       Execute the injection as described in point 1. Due to water conditions it is advisable to apply onto the basement walls the DAMP PROOFING PLASTER HYDROTYNK U coat. It is recommended to apply the plaster in coats of thickness ca. 10 mm, depending on the substrate dampness level. For walls slightly damp, one – two plaster coats are sufficient, for walls intensively damp it is advisable to use minimum three plaster coats. It is recommended to execute a plaster cove made of DAMP PROOFING PLASTER HYDROTYNK U, onto wall corners and wall – floor joint edges. If needed, the damp proofing plaster can be used in combination with the coat made of two – component waterproofing membrane ATLAS WODER DUO executed on the floor.

    3.     Reconstruction of horizontal insulation with the injection method from outdoors, without excavation execution, with the application of the tub – shaped insulation made of two – component waterproofing membrane ATLAS WODER DUO.

    -       Partition type: external walls, foundation or basement walls, partly earth – sheltered

    -       Water conditions: groundwater table above the foundation level, groundwater temporarily dumping (infiltration), pressure – less

    -       Execute the injection as described in point 1. Due to water conditions and possible high wall dampness level it is advisable to execute on basement walls (and floor) the tub – shaped insulation made of mineral two – component waterproofing membrane ATLAS WODER DUO – in two coats, keeping  3 – hour break between the coats application. ATLAS WODER DUO must be applied onto properly even substrate, in case of large wall unevenness it is recommended to apply a scratch made of SCRATCH COAT TRO. It is recommended to execute a plaster cove made of DAMP PROOFING PLASTER HYDROTYNK U, onto wall corners and wall – floor joint edges. Onto properly aged membrane surface the renovation plasters ATLAS ZŁOTY WIEK can be applied, depending on the wall salinity. Depending on the expected aesthetic effect the plaster surface can be finished with a properly chosen conservatory finishing coat or Silicate Renovation Paint S-02.

    4.     Reconstruction of horizontal insulation with the injection method from outdoors, with the foundation excavation and execution of the new vertical insulation in mineral system.

    -       The injection is executed from the outdoors, drilling the holes above the strip foundation or from the indoors – in both cases the membrane should be above the basement floor level. In case of very thick walls (> 60 cm) it is advisable to drill holes alternately, in both wall sides. Apply the SILICIFICATION PREPARATION KS as described in point 1. Onto foundation walls from outdoors, apply the waterproofing coat made of mineral waterproofing mortar ATLAS WODER S or two – component waterproofing membrane ATLAS WODER DUO, in minimum 3 coats. Protect the applied waterproofing coat against mechanical damage with the use of dimpled membrane or extruded polystyrene XPS boards of thickness 2 cm, covered with a layer of 0.2 mm building foil. Apply the XPS boards with cement – based adhesive ATLAS STOPTER K-20. Fill the excavation with filtration backfill and execute the sea bank made of sett around the building.

    5.     Reconstruction of horizontal insulation with the injection method from outdoors, with the foundation excavation and execution of the new vertical insulation in bitumen system (water – based, solvent – free).

    -       The injection is executed from the outdoors, drilling the holes above the strip foundation or from the indoors – in both cases the membrane should be above the basement floor level. In case of very thick walls (> 60 cm) it is advisable to drill holes alternately, in both wall sides. After silicification, prime the whole surface of excavated foundation walls with KS preparation diluted with water in ratio 1:1 and apply a coat of mineral waterproofing mortar ATLAS WODER S. Then, apply the waterproofing coat made of dispersion, thick – coat asphalt – rubber mass Izohan IZOBUD WM or Izohan IZOBUD WM 2K, of thickness 2 – 4 mm, depending on the water pressure. Protect the applied waterproofing coat against mechanical damage with the use of dimpled membrane or extruded polystyrene XPS boards of thickness 2 cm, covered with a layer of 0.2 mm building foil. Apply the XPS boards with adhesive Izohan EKOLEP. Fill the excavation with filtration backfill and execute the sea bank made of sett around the building.
