BASF - MasterSeal 590
Application

Used to stop active water or seepage under pressure through joints, cracks and holes in concrete or masonry, where a normal mortar would be washed away and resin mortars would not bond.

  • As a seal for construction joints or floor joints prior to basement tanking with.
  • For instant sewer connections.
  • For sealing cracks and construction joints in reservoirs and other water retaining structures.
  • For rapid anchoring of bolts, conduits, pipes, railings, sanitary equipment, etc.
  • Joint filling, pointing between concrete segments in concrete and brick tunnels, sewage systems, pipes and mines.

Description

MasterSeal 590, when mixed with clean water, provides a ready to use ultra-rapid setting durable plugging mortar for active water leaks in concrete and masonry. The material expands as it cures to form a watertight seal with similar characteristics to concrete.

Features and benefits:

  • Ultra-rapid set, instant plugging of leaks.
  • Requires the addition of water only.
  • Expands as it sets, ensuring a permanent watertight seal.
  • Similar characteristics and compatible with concrete.
  • Chloride-free.
  • Does not promote corrosion of the reinforcement.
