Exclusive SealGenius® Technology
How SealGenius System Works
The SealGenius® system is mainly used to seal the concrete cracks and repair the waterproofing layer made of membranes or resins in new or older structures.
SealGenius® technology is a special treatment system to repair the waterproof layer and seal the structure to protect against deterioration. The SealGenius system offers a definitive, fast and cost-effective solution to infiltration problems considered difficult and often treated with palliative solutions. Our unique system combines two exclusive technologies: The Liquelastic® SG 7007 with low viscosity and density (almost equal to water) and the water leak repair machine.
Eliminating infiltrations is essential to protect concrete structures from deterioration.
How cracks and water decrease the concrete’s lifetime
According to the American Concrete Institute (ACI), the indices that indicate that the concrete’s durability is being compromised are increasing. The growth of the appearance of pathological manifestations are attributed to the problems within the waterproofing layer of concrete structures.
A concrete structure subjected to a water infiltration will expand the crack with greater speed, making the degradation process more and more accelerated, opening the way for the faster entry of aggressive agents of the environment into the structure, facilitating the harmful action of the carbon dioxide and chlorides on the steel structure.
Why use SealGenius system to eliminate infiltrations?
“It is essential to eliminate infiltration points when they are identified in order to avoid the evolution of the problem to other regions and stop the deterioration, that compromise the structure”.
All infiltrations begins in the “tension points” of the concrete structure. “Tension points” are localized structural efforts due to the retraction and thermal expansion of the different materials, structural movements and building settlement, which generate cracks and continuously damage the waterproofing layer.
In addition, concrete and steel are two materials with different properties that work together, it is impossible to predict their behavior when exposed to inclement weather. In this way, it is natural for cracks and microcracks to appear within the concrete, serving as an entry point for aggressive agents such as carbon dioxide and chlorides, which reduce the durability of the structure.
Redoing the waterproofing layer, does not resolve the underlying cause of the problem. In addition to a much higher cost, new damages in the same regions will recur in a short period, because the waterproofing layer does not support structural movements. The sealing of cracks and micro-cracks in concrete is essential to stop the penetration of carbon dioxide and chlorides that are attacking the structure.
The ultimate solution for these cases is the pressurized application of the Liquelastic® SG 7007 from SealGenius, that will seal all the cracks and the infiltration points of the waterproofing layer, absorbing the movements of the structure, because of it’s permanent flexibility.
Exclusive SealGenius equipment and products.
SealGenius´s innovative system combines two unique technologies: a Water Leak Repair Machine (up to 250Bar) and Liquelastic® SG 7007 with viscosity and density the same as water.
Water Leak Repair Machine.
SealGenius’s exclusive SG707 Water Leak Repair Machine is able to reach an unique pressure (up to 250Bar), allowing the product to overcome the resistance of the concrete (25Mpa) and penetrate to the source of leakage of the waterproofing layer, ensuring the total elimination of infiltration.
Remote Control - Wireless.
Full duplex wireless remote control with OLED display. Simultaneously sends and receives comands and system information. Designed to operate with just one hand. It works with rechargeable battery and can be charged by the machine.
The Liquelastic® SG 7007 is highly durable and has permanent elasticity. Due to the very low viscosity and density, it is able to penetrate in 100% of the cracks and microcracks by filling up the source of the leak. After cured, it forms an elastic and solid structure with excellent adhesion to both dry and wet substrates.
