TAPA-VIAS

Almost instant-setting mortar for plugging water leaks in tanks, pipes and similar elements.

  • TAPA-VIAS is a fibre-reinforced, resin-modified mortar of high strength and quality, with controlled shrinkage and ultra-fast setting.
  • Physical-mechanical characteristics very similar to those of concrete: elasticity, permeability.
  • High adhesion to most building materials: concrete, stone, brick.
  • Excellent mechanical resistance during bending and compression.
  • Very high wear resistance, even in aggressive environments.
  • Fully anti-sagging.
  • Being alkaline in nature, it protects armatures.

FIELDS OF APPLICATION

  • It can plug water leaks from pipe breakage, tanks, swimming pools and in general any structural element made of concrete.
  • It is suitable for application in tunnels, galleries, wells, canals, and in general any structure where the construction material is concrete.
  • It is also widely used for ultra-fast anchoring of door counter-frames.
  • Ideal for ultra-fast anchoring of railings, traffic posts, bolts, light boxes, and passage of corrugated light tubes.
  • Excellent for repairing window frames, doors and bolt anchors.
  • Excellent for vertical and horizontal repairs, including counter-gravity.

HOW IS IT APPLIED?

Surface preparation:

  • In a waterway: remove any deteriorated, unconnected, unsound or friable concrete beforehand.
  • When anchoring elements: remove all traces of dust, paints, waxes, release agents and open the hole to allow the TAPA-VIAS to penetrate deeply.
  • Pre-moisten highly absorbent substrates or substrates exposed to the sun in hot weather to prevent rapid loss of water from the anchoring mortar.

Preparing the mix:

  • Mix EXACTLY 2.0 litres of water with 10 kg of TAPA-VIAS, or mix 400 cm3 of water with 2 kg of TAPA-VIAS. Mix quickly by HAND with a spatula and leave to stand for approx. 2 minutes. IMMEDIATELY take a small amount of TAPA-VIAS in your hand and shape it into a rounded, pointed shape.

Application:

  • IMMEDIATELY insert the TAPA-VIAS into the crack in the concrete where the water is leaking and press very hard for 40 seconds until the water stops leaking out.
  • Next, remove the excess, then clean and sanitise the area around the hole.
  • In applications with strong sunlight, once the repair has been carried out, the surface should be protected by creating an artificial shade and/or periodically wetting the surface. This will avoid the formation of surface micro-cracks due to excessive drying speed.
  • Download the TAPA-VIAS technical Data Sheet to check all the technical details and ensure correct, safe application.

HOW IS IT RECYCLED?

 

  • Use cardboard and paper recycling bins to dispose of unusable and empty sacks.
  • Use plastic recycling bins for unusable and empty plastic packaging. 
  • Mortar residues and leftover building materials must be disposed of at the appropriate green point or recycling location for your district.
