detailed information

BORNIT® Injektil 100 is a liquid injection agent based on water-repellent silicates.

BORNIT® Injektil 100 is used for the additional creation of horizontal membranes against capillary action water in concrete, masonry and plaster. This product may be used for non-pressure and pressure chemical injection treatments.  The building structure must be solid and cohesive, because BORNIT® Injektil 100 does not have any reinforcing properties.
The use of the injection agent is possible at up 65% masonry dampness.

BORNIT® Injektil 100 for chemical injection is used without dilution in the form, in which it is supplied. It contains potassium hydroxide and it thus reacts in an alkaline manner. Therefore, it is necessary to protect both the eyes and the skin from coming into contact with the material.
Sensitive surfaces (for example, aluminium, glass and so on) may be corroded. The affected area must be immediately rinsed with a greater amount of water.

Chemical injection is usually carried out above ground level (in the area of the base section) and in cellars above the level of the pressure or retained water.
The horizontal membrane is carried out above the level of the ground or the floor or above the level of cellar foundations after uncovering the terrain at the sites of the rehabilitated foundations using drilled holes.
If the drilled holes discover cracks, hollows or open joints, these areas are then filled along with the drilled hole using a special suspension, during which the suspension in the form of liquid mortar is pressed into them. Prior to hardening (after 30 minutes and up to a maximum of 3 hours), the drilled holes are again bored out.

The distance of the drilled holes is governed by the absorption properties of the masonry. If the absorption is high, the distance between the drilled holes can be larger, whereas if the absorption is lower the distance between the drilled holes is less. The fundamental thing is, however, that the maximum distance is 120 mm.
The diameter of the holes during the pressure injection is about 30 mm and the angle of the drilled holes  (from top to bottom) lies between 45° and 30°.
The depth of the drilled holes should be about 5cm shorter than the thickness of the wall.

Prior to filling the holes with the injection solution, it is necessary to remove the dust, which has been caused by boring them. If the walls are thicker than 0.5 m, it is necessary to carry out the drilled holes from both sides, while corners are also treated in the same manner from both sides.  In the case of thick walls, the water repellent effects are significantly extended. Non-pressure injection is carried out using a suitable container (a watering can) and the solution is poured in the so-called wet-to-wet manner (during the break, the original sealing compound should not set) and this is done until full saturation is achieved, meaning that the masonry material no longer accepts any more of the solution.
It is also possible to fill the drilled holes using a bottle with a filling nozzle. In that case, the suitable diameter of the drilled holes is 16 mm to 20 mm.
During pressure injection, which should be carried out in the low-pressure area, the drilled holes are carried out according to the following picture.

Additional measures:
After carrying out a chemical masonry capillary injection to combat rising rising damp, it is necessary to ensure that above the injection zone does not back water can penetrate into the masonry. This plaster renewals with the necessary vertical surface pretreatments and below grade waterproofing of exterior surfaces are required. Is the salt-damaged plaster (rot), it should be cut off after the treatment and replaced by BORNIT® Renovation plaster. Harmful salts must be inactivated with BORNIT® Anti-Sulfate.
