Professional & Reliable Pu Injection Grouting
Pu Injection Grouting
Pu injection grouting, also known as grouting waterproofing, is a method that utilises polyurethane and injects it into the cracks formed within walls. In some cases, the cracks we see on the surface are just small parts of a larger problem, which usually means that more significant gaps can be found beneath the surface of the walls.
If the cracks beneath the surface are not addressed immediately, the damage can spread, affecting other areas of your home like electrical lines or plumbing. The best thing about polyurethane is that it repels water, which we all know is one of the main culprits for these types of damages.
This hydrophobic quality of polyurethane helps keep moisture out of the walls and other surfaces and helps bolster their durability. This quality is also beneficial in countries like Singapore since the weather is humid, and moisture can form on different surfaces without us noticing it.
While our walls or different surfaces are built to last, there is still a life expectancy for these things, and humidity can even help speed up the deterioration process if not prevented. But if things are already too late, and there are visible cracks on the walls, a Pu grouting is definitely in order.
Advantages of Pu Injection Grouting Waterproofing
Pu Injection Grouting Process
As with any installation process, cleaning is the most crucial step because it ensures that nothing will get in the way of the thing you’re looking to install. Cleaning also helps installers get a feel for the extent of the damage when probing the area, so it’s always a good idea to initially clean the surface area.
Since cracks don’t just rest on the surface, drilling these surfaces should be done to get to the possible hairline cracks beneath. Hairline cracks are small gaps brought about by moisture or earthquakes that can lead to larger ones if not addressed immediately.
This is also where grouting nozzles are inserted into the holes. These nozzles will allow the installers to perform additional actions such as seam cleaning and the most crucial step, putting in the grout.
The initial cleaning just covers the damaged parts’ surface area, but seam cleaning goes much deeper by going for the cracks themselves. The nozzles inserted into the drilled holes introduce high-pressure water into the cracks, ensuring that the gaps are clean and ready for grouting.
Sealing and Grouting
After the seam cleaning process, the cracks are sealed with a waterproof material in preparation for the grouting process. Polyurethane tends to leak out of unsealed holes; that’s why every spot must be clogged except for locations of the nozzles.
Once everything is secure, the grouting process can begin. Polyurethane is introduced into the drilled holes, allowing them to seep into the cracks. As mentioned earlier, polyurethane dries up fairly quickly, so the process needs to be just as quick.
Final Seal and Waterproofing
Once grouting is done and the installers have confirmed that there are no leaks, the nozzles are removed, and the last layer of the seal is applied. Once the cement-based waterproof seal is used, the waterproof solution is added to the surface, ensuring complete protection of the repaired area.
