Gelacryl™

Gelacryl is a two-component, acrylic-based injection resin developed for waterproofing, control of water infiltration and stabilising and coagulating a variety of loose soils

Product Description

Gelacryl™ is an acrylic-based, hydrophilic gel, consisting of two-components: a resin and an initiator which are pumped with a twin piston pump at a 1/1 ratio. Once polymerised, Gelacryl forms a resilient, elastomeric gel.

  • Resin : Gelacryl
  • Catalyst : TE 300
  • Initiator : SP 200
  • Decelerator : KF 500

Field of Application

  • Water control during tunnelling operations.
  • Curtain grouting.
  • Waterproofing of underground structures in concrete or masonry (cellars, underground car parks).
  • Sealing of cracks in concrete and rock formations.
  • Sealing of tunnel liners.
  • Mixed with cement for the waterproofing and consolidation of structures and voids.

Product Advantages

  • Gelacryl is injected with a twin piston, 1/1 ratio pump
  • Gelacryl is delivered on site with a composition of 45% solids which can be diluted to 22% solids, depending on the nature of the application. In diluting the basic material, the viscosity can be adapted depending on the site requirements
  • The low viscosity of Gelacryl ensures a deep penetration in the joint and the soil around the joint
  • Exhibits very low permeability for long lasting waterproofing
  • Non-flammable
  • No environmental labelling required
  • Poly-acrylate resin, free of acrylamides
  • Has a very good overall chemical resistance and is resistant to petroleum, mineral/vegetable oils and greases (*)

(*) For chemical resistances please contact your GCP representative.

Application

1. Composition

  • The injection grout needs to be prepared immediately before the injection. Do not dilute the resin to less than 23% solids when injecting.
COMPONENT 1 COMPONENT 2
Gelacryl Water
TE 300 SP 200
  • After preparation, the components are injected simultaneously at a ratio of 1/1.

2. Preparation

Component 1

Gelacryl vessel. Add the required quantity of TE 300 catalyst to the Gelacryl resin. Gelacryl and TE 300 need to be thoroughly mixed.

Component 2

SP 200 vessel. The vessel is first filled with the required quantity of water as the Gelacryl vessel after which the SP 200 is added. The mixture is thoroughly mixed.

3. Gel times (typical mixtures)

  • Depending on the concentrations of TE 300 catalyst and SP 200 initiator in their respective blends, varying gel times can be obtained. Air, material and background temperatures will also influence gel times. The pH and the nature of the injection substrate will also affect gel times. The following typical gel times can be obtained by mixing the components according to the following formulations.

4. Injection

  • The injection work should be carried out with a twin piston, 1/1 ratio pump (IP 2C-Gel). Please read the relevant Technical Data Sheet. For injection procedure, please read the Injection Manual.
  • Delayed gel times (for example for soil injections) can be reached by adding KF 500 decelerator. Contact our technical department for correct formulations.
