There are three primary success factors involved in ensuring the effectiveness and durability of injection works. It is essential that the right combination of injection materials, injection equipment and injection method must be selected and this is what Sika’s extensive technical and practical experience provides:

The selection of the right injection material and indeed the right specific injection product for the defined project requirements is the first key factor for success. This especially means the materials viscosity, flexibility and behaviour in contact with water that can all significantly influence the effectiveness of the injection.

Appropriate equipment for the selected injection material, including for the correct preparation, mixing and delivery of the material is the second key success factor. This means everything from the initial dosage and mixing, through delivery from a suitable pump, to use of the right packers/ports/connectors.

Thirdly, the correct injection method and application techniques must be used by trained, competent and experienced contractors, in order to ensure the success and provide complete and permanent leak sealing solutions.
