SPI Announces Elastomeric Bridging Polyurea Now Available for High Pressure Equipment

Specialty Products, Inc. (SPI) announced today the launch of a new Elastomeric Bridging Polyurea, AQUASEAL™ Hi Rise X3 AP, designed for high-pressure, spray equipment. This comes after successful beta testing of the improved system that was previously developed and sold for use with SPI’s LPG™. AQUASEAL™ Hi Rise X3 AP polyurea is an elastomer that expands approximately 300% of its original volume during the spray application process. When applied to porous surfaces such as vertically poured concrete, concrete masonry (CMU) or wood, it bridges substrate imperfections, and virtually dismisses blowholes and pinholes.

The initial formulation, AQUASEAL™ Hi Rise X3 polyurea was designed to process through SPI’s low-pressure, LPG™ proportioning equipment only. With the distinct advantage of adhering to many polymeric substrates, typically without the use of a primer, AQUASEAL™ Hi Rise X3 polyurea quickly became a solution for concrete resurfacing, saving contractors money and time, but was only available to LPG™ contractors. Listening to and fulfilling customer’s requests, the newly developed AQUASEAL™ Hi Rise X3 AP polyurea formula is now available for use with high-pressure spray equipment, and an Air Purge gun.

In most instances, when used as a spray-applied basecoat, AQUASEAL™ Hi Rise X3 AP expanding polyurea minimizes surface preparation time by eliminating the use of mortar or other cementitious materials generally used to fill pinholes or blowholes, in both new and existing porous surfaces. As is the original formula, high-pressure spray-applied AQUASEAL™ Hi Rise X3 AP polyurea is recommended for waterproofing exterior basements and foundations, to fill or repair control joints, random cracks, and shallow spalls on concrete surfaces.
