By isolating the pipe with the leak, contractors can cycle PipeFuze liquids through the pipe. As the particulates and liquid set fill the leak, water stops flowing through and the leak ends. Using the hardener makes the fluids adhere to area of the leak and the crack is literally fused together to form a permanent bond.
Part A of the liquid set includes a small particulate that gets pulled into the offending area. With the viscous liquid of the Part A fluid, this makes a dam that penetrates the crack and builds a firm block that stops the flow of water. Plugging the crack and stopping the leak allows the area to dry out on the outside of the pipe. Over the course of two hours, a gentle cycle of water at a low pressure will allow the crack to fill.
Part B of the liquid set creates a reaction in the fluid of Part A. This reaction hardens the fluid from Part A and makes a solid bond with the fluid, keeping the dam in place and ending the potential of water to seep through the crack. Together, the two fluids make a strong seal to leaks and keeps contractors from having to break concrete to get at a pipe for repair. It’s pipe repair from the inside.
