Chemrite® CIT
Thixotropic Crack Injection Epoxy

Overview

 

CHEMRITE® CIT is a thixotropic epoxy injection compound used to repair cracks and fill gaps in concrete structures. As the name states, the thixotropic properties make it the ideal compound to use when a low viscosity epoxy leaks or is difficult to restrain.

CHEMRITE® CIT can be used in high or low pressure applications. It is best suited to cracks/gaps between 1 and 3 mm (Low pressure) and 0.3 – 3 mm (High Pressure).

Features

  • Deep penetrating

  • Bonds to damp concrete

Key Attributes

  • Thixotropic properties – Only flows under pressure, reducing the risk of leaking.

  • Can be used to seal wet cracks/gaps (High pressure only)

  • Cost effective – very soft in the uncured state and thus allows for easier installation

  • High Modulus - CHEMRITE® CIT has a higher modulus than CHEMRITE® CILV

  • High early strengths

Typical Applications

 

CHEMRITE® CIT can be used in low or high pressure applications. Typical crack injection applications include:

  • Concrete structures

  • Tunnel linings

  • Water retaining structures

  • Fractured concrete bases

  • Bridge decks

  • Concrete Piles

  • Concrete columns

Packaging

  • CHEMRITE® CIT is packaged in 450 ml cartridges.

  • CHEMRITE® CIT is also packaged in 3, 15 and 30 litre kits.
