REZI-WELD GEL PASTE

TROWEL-GRADE CONSTRUCTION EPOXY
Provides an ideal consistency for cap sealing, patching and general repairs.

SEALTIGHT REZI-WELD GEL PASTE Construction Epoxy is an easy-to-use, color-coded, two-component epoxy compound, developed for vertical or overhead concrete surfaces.

Technical Description
SEALTIGHT REZI-WELD GEL PASTE Trowel-Grade Construction Epoxy is a two-component, 100% solids, gel epoxy compound designed for general concrete repair work. It's a high-modulus, high-strength, chemical-resistant and moisture-insensitive material. The product has a trowel-grade consistency for filling cracks in vertical or overhead structures.

GEL PASTE is solvent-free and VOC-compliant. Although it has a gel consistency, it is very easy to mix and apply. This is of great importance when using GEL PASTE as an adhesive, since it fills all gaps between the surfaces to be bonded, while a liquid epoxy adhesive might run out and reduce the bond area. To make small patches in concrete structures, it is often more convenient to use the GEL PASTE than to prepare an epoxy mortar using silica sand.

Uses
SEALTIGHT REZI-WELD GEL PASTE Construction Epoxy with its consistency is ideal for patching and general repairs in vertical or overhead structural concrete surfaces. Also suitable for surface sealing prior to pressure injection.

Advantages and Benefits

bulletPatches and repairs vertical or overhead concrete surfaces
bulletFills all the gaps between the surfaces to be bonded...unlike the liquid epoxy adhesives which might run out and reduce the bond area
bulletEasy-to-mix and apply with its trowel-grade consistency
bulletOffers high-viscosity, high-modulus and high-strength characteristics
bulletResists industrial chemicals and is moisture insensitive
bulletVOC-compliant
bulletColor-coded, innovative, unitized packaging assures proper mixing of the 2 components
bulletExcellent bond strength suitable for cap sealing

Packaging
1 quart (.95 liter) Units
1 gallon (3.79 liter) Units
10 gallon (37.85 liter) Units

Coverage
One gallon (1 liter) neat provides approximately 231 cubic inches (995.67 cubic centimeters) of adhesive. Exact coverage will depend on surface porosity and end use application.

Application Tools

 
Electric Drill with Jiffy Blade

 
Pointed Trowel

 

Application
SURFACE PREPARATION: All surfaces to be bonded must be free of standing water and completely clean of dirt, rust, curing compounds, grease, oil, paint, and unsound materials which would prevent a solid bond.

Concrete should be cleaned by light mechanical abrading to form a sound surface. Vacuum or blow dust away with compressed air.

Smooth surfaces, such as wood require sanding or other mechanical abrasion. Exposed steel surfaces should be sandblasted and vacuumed clean; if not possible, degrease the surface and use sandpaper or a wire brush to reveal continuous, bright metal.

MIXING: Components must be between 60 and 85F (16 and 29C) at time of mixing. (See PRECAUTIONS). Stir each component before combining. For gallons, use a 600-900 RPM slow-speed electric drill with a Jiffy blade.

Do not use high-speed mixing equipment. De-rim containers. Add Component B to Component A and mix slowly for at least 3 minutes, avoiding air entrapment. Scrape the sides, bottom and corners of the container as well as the mixing blade. Place mixed epoxy as soon as possible. Work life depends on the temperature and the mass.

METAL ANCHORS IN PREFORMED HOLES IN CONCRETE: Preformed holes should be approximately 1/4" (6.35mm) larger in diameter than the anchor bolt diameter. The depth of the hole should be 10-15 times the bolt diameter. Fill the hole from the bottom up, about half way with the mixed epoxy and place the bolt, dowel or rebar. Top off with more epoxy and finish. Doweling configurations must be approved or designed by an engineer.

CRACKS IN VERTICAL OR OVERHEAD STRUCTURES: For non-moving cracks and joints, use a trowel to apply the paste full depth and strike off flush at the surface in a single pass.

For structural crack injection repairs use a dual-component gel pump.

PATCHES IN CONCRETE STRUCTURES: GEL PASTE makes a high-strength material for patching, topping, grouting and repairing spalls and other defects in concrete. Average thickness of the patch or topping should be no greater than 1/4 to 1/2" (6.35 to 12.7mm) per lift.

OTHER BONDING: To bond cured concrete or metal to concrete, apply a layer not less than 1/64" (.40mm) to the prepared surface and join together immediately. No firm clamping pressure is necessary beyond what will hold the parts in place. When bonding fresh concrete to cured concrete, apply GEL PASTE at approximately 85 to 100 ft. per gallon (2.1 to 2.4m per liter). NOTE: Cured concrete surfaces to be bonded should be at least 28 days old.

CAP SEALING: Apply mixed epoxy over entire length of crack to be pressure injected. Ensure complete encapsulation to avoid leaking. Adjacent concrete surfaces must be mechanically abraded to ensure proper bond. Allow for suitable cure time prior to injecting.

Shelf Life
Two years in unopened, damage-free containers stored in a dry environment between 40 and 95F (4 and 35C).

Precautions
Do not thin epoxy with solvents. Do not use for sealing cracks while under hydrostatic pressure or spray without consulting W. R. MEADOWS Technical Service first. Never warm epoxy over direct heat. Warm cold epoxy by placing containers of cold epoxy into hot water. The preferred method is to store the epoxy in a warm room prior to use.

The resin and hardener must be between 60 and 85F (16 and 29C) at the time of mixing and is not recommended for use when the pavement temperature for the past 24 hours has been below 40F (4C). For exterior, on-grade applications, consult W. R. MEADOWS Technical Service first. Read and follow application data, precautions and Material Safety Data information.

CLEANUP
Tools and equipment should be cleaned immediately with Toluene or Xylene. Clean equipment away from heat, sparks and open flame and avoid breathing vapors or allowing epoxy-containing solvent to contact skin. Should this material come in contact with the skin, wash thoroughly with soap and water; not solvent.
