Aquacrete has introduced a water-resistant shotblast product developed specifically for reinforcement and stabilisation where conditions may result in erosion from water.
Aquacrete Wet-Repel is said to achieve a compressive strength of up to 25 MPa.
The product’s water absorption is similar to that of concrete, achieving an absorption rate of less than 18%.
As with other Aquacrete shotblast products, Aquacrete Wet-Repel bonds well to hard rock and coal and can be applied in a single application to any desired thickness.
It is not necessary to apply a thin spray-on liner prior to or after shotblasting with the product.
As a result of its rapid-setting properties, Wet-Repel can achieve specified compressive strength in as little as 24 hours.
