HYDRAULIC PLUG

ProMasonry Hydraulic Plug is a single component, fast setting hydraulic cement that can be either hand or trowel applied.

SUGGESTED USES
Stop running water, pressure leaks and seepage. Seal concrete and clay pipe joints. Seal through wall pipes and conduit in foundation walls. Crack repair on static cracks.

CHARCTERISTICS
Fast setting - changes from a mortar-like consistency to a hardened state in approximately 60 seconds.

  • Expands as it sets to create a watertight seal.
  • Non-metallic
  • Easy to use. Simply add water and mix.
  • Can be top coated with appropriate materials.
  • Stops leaks underwater.
  • Can be used interior or exterior, above or below grade, vertical or overhead.
  • Safe for use in drinking water systems when fully cured.

PREPARATION
Remove loose and deteriorated material, laitance, dirt, dust, oil and any surface contaminants that will inhibit proper bond.

  • Prepare a mechanical key using a hammer and chisel to notch a keyway in the area of the leak. Minimum depth of repair is 3/4 inch.
  • Relieve pressure where necessary by drilling weep holes near the bottom of the wall.
  • For static cracks, and at the intersection of the wall and floor slab rout the crack at least 3/4 x 3/4 inch, slightly undercutting if possible.
  • Saturate substrate with clean water, (saturated surface dry/SSD).

PRIMING
No priming is required under normal circumstances.

MIXING
Pour a small amount of water into a clean vessel. Slowly add powder while mixing with gloved hand or margin trowel to a stiff mortar consistency. Do not re -temper.

PLACEMENT
Scoop the material while still plastic, with a gloved hand.

  • Form a ball of the material and hold until it begins to generate heat.
  • Once warm, press into the hole or prepared keyway with force.
  • Hold in place for 1 minute or until hard.
  • Shave excess material from surface.
  • Cold water will slow set, warm water will accelerate set.
  • Apply ProMasonry Décor Seal for additional waterproof protection.

CURING
No curing procedures are required.

CLEAN UP
Clean tools and equipment with water immediately after use. Cured material will need to be mechanically removed.
