Quadex® GeoKrete® geopolymer is formulated to provide corrosion resistant protection in a high hydrogen sulfide environment, restore structural integrity and eliminate the infiltration of groundwater in deteriorated structures. GeoKrete is a factory blended, one-component (just add water), eco-friendly, micro-fiber reinforced geopolymer mortar synthesized from reactive SiO2 and Al2O from industrial byproducts, enhanced with monocrystalline quartz aggregate. The GeoKrete geopolymer reaction mechanism is alkali-activated polycondensation which yields superior physical properties and chemical resistance. It can be applied in one pass up to several inches thick on horizontal or vertical surfaces by low pressure spraying or spin cast application process.
GeoKrete geopolymer is supplied in 60 lb. | 27.2 kg. poly- lined bags or 1,000 lb. | 454kg super sacks.
One 60 lb. | 27.2 kg bag of GeoKrete geopolymer will yield approximately 0.45 cu. ft. | 0.013 cu. m. and will cover 10.8 sq. ft. | 1.0 sq. m. at a 1/2-inch | 12.7 mm thickness.
Prepare surface to be patched by removing unsound concrete, dirt, dust, oil and other debris using high pressure (3,500 PSI | 241.3 bar) water blasting. Stop active infiltration. Then rinse with potable water to remove all remaining dirt, sand and loose debris. This will provide a clean, damp surface to allow for a good bond.
Use approximately 0.48 to 0.57 gallons | 1.82 to 2.16 liters of potable water per 60 lb. | 27.2 kg bag of GeoKrete geopolymer. For 1,000 lb. | 454 kg. supersack use approximately 8.0 to
9.5 gallons | 30.3 to 36 liters of potable water. First add water to mixer, start the mixer and add GeoKrete geopolymer until mortar is completely mixed. Once all geopolymer material and water has been added to mixer, it needs to mix for approximately five (5) minutes prior to being transfered into the material hopper. Once fully mixed, additional water may be added, as approved by Quadex, should it be necessary for proper consistency.
Apply GeoKrete geopolymer by low pressure spraying or the spin cast application process on horizontal or vertical surfaces to a monolithic minimum thickness of 1/2-inch
| 12.7 mm for a protective layer to new or non-corroded infrastructure and 1.0-inch | 25.4 mm for structural restoration of existing infrastructure.
