Product reference: 5/44
Product title: Epoxy Injection Grout & Resin
Valid from: 15th January 2001
Last reviewed: July 2019
A two-pack cold cured epoxy injection material with high tensile strength.
Both products are designed for use as a high tensile strength crack filler for concrete, applied using injection methods.Corrocoat Epoxy Injection Resin is a low viscosity material, designed for use on small and narrow cracks, Corrocoat Epoxy Injection Grout is a higher viscosity filled material, appropriate for cracks wider than 2mm.
Do not use at temperatures below 41°F (5°C).
Health & safety
Before handling or using this product, the material safety data sheets should be read and all precautions observed.
Corrocoat Epoxy Injection Grout and Resin may be applied onto damp concrete surfaces with minimal surface preparation. For best results however the surface laitance should be removed and the concrete abraded then vacuumed prior to application.
Airless 45:1 or higher spray pump, diaphragm pump or similar positive displacement pump.
The performance of this product will be adversely affected by the addition of solvents, do not add thinners.

Materials may be overcoated after 24 hours at 68°F (20°C), will vary depending on ambient conditions and application. Maximum overcoating time 72 hours at 68°F (20°C).
Acetone, MEK or MIBK prior to gelation, for best results use Corrocoat epoxy equipment cleaner on pumps.Observe safety precautions.
A pressure plate should be prepared sufficiently large to cover the crack to be injected. Inlet and outlets (minimum diameter 1⁄2” or 12.5mm nominal bore) shall be positioned in such a way to be at each end of the crack. Valves to be fitted to theinlet and outlet. For large or deep cracks additional air bleed pipes may be required.Use raw bolts or similar firmly attach the plate to the surface. Use small diameter ‘O’ ring or similar either side of the crack to affect a seal, clamp the ‘O’ ring between the plate and the concrete.Pump the product at low pressure from one end only until the product flows freely from the outlet, for best results on vertical cracks pump form the bottom upwards. Close the outlet valve and leave the plate under a pressure of circa 2 bar for at least 1 hour (if the pressure continues to drop over this period this would indicate large quantities of product are flowing through and out of the crack, stop pumping and allow the product to cure. Remove the plate to assess the extent of the filling and continue the injection with material as above). After 1 hour close the inlet valve, flush spray equipment and lines with solvent, and leave the crack under pressure for at least 24 hours. After 24 hours remove the pressure plate, fill and dress the crack by hand if required.
