RX-1 Repair and Seal is a permanent, high performance hydraulic cement compound that has been enhanced using crystalline waterproofing technology which will stop moisture and water from penetrating through the concrete repair. It has been specifically designed to repair and patch holes and cracks in interior or exterior concrete structures either above or below grade. A few of the areas that it can be used are basements, garages, foundations, swimming pools, ponds, fountains, drains, holding tanks, pits, slabs, footings, reservoirs, sewers, tunnels, piers, dams, canals, retaining walls and sea walls. It can be used to repair defects in concrete prior to application of
RX-1 Repair and Seal is extremely fast-setting (less than 5 minutes), it expands as it sets so it is non-shrink and has a high structural and bond strength. Typical results for compressive strength (ASTM C109) are 2100psi after 24 hours, 3100psi after 7 days and 4500psi after 28 days. It can be used to stop the active flow of water through cracks and holes even under constant water pressure. RX-1 Repair and Seal can also be used in under water applications.
RX-1 Repair and Seal is easy to prepare by simply mixing 3.5 parts with 1 part of warm water by volume at 60-70F to form a stiff putty consistency. Do not mix more than can be used in 3 minutes. Form the putty into a plug and press firmly into the area to be repaired until it hardens which will be less than 5 minutes.
A 60 pound pail of RX-1 Repair and Seal will produce approximately 0.5 cubic feet of mortar or 1 pound of product will patch 1 linear foot of crack measuring 1” wide x 1.5” deep.
