Bostik Puder-EX (Previously Sovereign Powder X)
Powder EX is a catalytically accelerated, cement-bound plugging mortar that hardens within seconds of contact with water. After hardening, Powder EX is frost and thawing salt resistant, weather-resistant and lastingly water impermeable.
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
Powder EX is used for fast, long-lasting sealing of leaks and water intrusions in concrete, masonry and natural stone structures. Upon contact with Powder EX, the water flow is stopped within seconds. In the Special Waterproofing System Aquastopp, Powder EX is required in the second step after the Powder No. 1. Applications are the sealing of leaks in basement structures, underground garages, tunnels, dams, sewers, sewage treatment plants, concrete pipes, lift wells, rainwater cisterns, quay walls, pipe passages (as flanking measure), bunker systems, masonry dams, sprinkler tanks, galleries, sluices, tunnel passages, lifting systems, installation excavations, water drawing machines and all locations at which sealing from the outside is not possible.
PREPARATION OF THE SUBSTRATE
The substrate must be firm, sound, clean and gypsum-free. Loose parts and residues of oil, forming oil, grease, dust or other separating layers of any kinds must be removed.
For sealing leaks and water intrusions, the consumption is determined by the actual need. When using in the Special Waterproofing System Aquastopp, approx. 1.5 kg/m² is required.
For sealing of a leak, a handful of Powder EX is pressed together dry into a firm clump like a snowball. After forming, this clump is pressed very quickly and with corresponding pressure into the water leak until the water is stopped. For very high water pressure or larger water streams, quickly stir Powder EX with large quantities of water into a thick paste and use immediately as a stopper to seal the water intrusion. For use as a component in the Special Waterproofing System Aquastopp, the first layer of the Special Slurry is rubbed dry with Powder EX. No-profile work gloves should be worn as protection during processing.
