Crystalline Injection

Crystalline Injection © technology:

The Crystal Injection © technology is a 100% ECO NATURAL PRODUCT which is based on natural product from the earth`s crust. Invented over 30 years ago by Chemistry Professor W. Nawrot of the Military University of Technology in Warsaw, Poland.

This product has been awarded several gold medals and over 100 other awards around the world. This method has been used to resolve both rising damp and penetrating damp issues and restored over 1200 buildings around the world to date.

 

BLUE MAGIC CRYSTAL LTD is the only contractor in the UK who carries a legal licence to use this product in the UK. The Crystal Injection © method works better when used in moist and wet circumstances and is better than  both “high pressure” and “cream injections” with 100% rising damp protection.

 

 

The Crystal Injection © horizontal method -step by step explanation:

Step1. Client contacts Blue Magic Crystal as there are serious damp marks on the wall.

Step2. Blue Magic Crystal inspects the property to confirm a rising damp issue. Some areas of the wall are exposed (plaster, render removed) to establish exact moisture contents in the wall.

Step 3. 20mm diameter holes are drilled every 10-12cm at 15-30 degree at the whole length of the wall. Usually injection holes are drilled approx. 5-8cm above the floor level so those can be hidden behind the skirting, this also allows Crystal to penetrate below existing DPM. When drilled and cleaned holes are sprayed with water to help spread the mixture (Crystal) within the porous material.

Step4. A mixture of cement, water, crystal and proprietary activator is made to create the injection mixture. Crystal mixture is then injected into the holes and sealed with a more viscous mixture of the filling material. Crystalline Injection`s © method is based on the use of capillary liquids for penetration by diffusion mechanism, followed by crystallization that seals off the pores and capillaries in the building material. The mixture spears into the material up to 20cm from the centre of the injection hole.

Step 5. The crystal growth process lasts for about 5-7 days, after this time the damp barrier is created in the walls. For horizontal injection this creates a solid DPC (dmp proof course) while vertical solution provides fully protected wall/s. A wall which has been injected can then be rendered and skimmed (if required). Blue Magic Crystal recommends using dehumidifier for a minimum of 7-14 days to dry the wall.

The Crystal Injection © vertical method  -detailed explanation:

This method is very similar to horizontal method but used when walls are not only being affected by rising damp but also suffer from penetrating damp. Usually high water level, faulty DPM and DPM or other issues (please see penetrating damp and basement waterproofing) force us to use this technology.

Blue Magic Crystal Ltd recommends waterproofing all basement or cellars which have any signs of damp.  Our Crystal Injection © vertical method protects the whole wall from floor level to required height.

Step1. Client contacts Blue Magic Crystal as there are serious damp marks on the wall- both low level (possible rising damp) and more damp/ wet areas in the middle of the wall (possible penetrating damp).

 

 

Step2. Blue Magic Crystal inspects the property to confirm rising and penetrating damp problems. Walls are exposed (plaster, render removed) to establish exact moisture contents in the wall.

Step 3. 20mm diameter holes are drilled.  The main difference between horizontal and vertical method is that we need to drill and inject Crystal into the walls starting approx. 50-70mm from the finished floor level going all the way up to the dry parts of the wall. In the majority of cases this may only be 600-700mm, whilst in some cases we may inject up to the ceiling line.

 

On the first row we drill holes every 10-12cm at 15-30 degrees along the whole length of the wall. Usually injection holes are drilled approx. 5-8cm above the floor level so those can be hidden behind the skirting, this also allow Crystal to penetrate below existing DPM. All higher rows are drilled with a 20cm maximum gap between them. When finished the wall looks like Swiss cheese but this hole net allows for a continuous barrier for the water/ moisture. When drilled and cleaned holes are sprayed with water to help spread the mixture (Crystal) within the porous material.

 

Step4. A mixture of cement, water, crystal and proprietary activator is made to create the injection mixture. Crystal mixture is then injected into the holes and sealed with a more viscous mixture of the filling material. Crystalline Injection`s © method is based on the use of capillary liquids for penetration by diffusion mechanism, followed by crystallization that seals off the pores and capillaries in the building material. The mixture spears into the material up to 20cm from the centre of the injection hole.

Step 5. The crystal growth process lasts for about 5-7 days, after this time the damp barrier is created in the walls. For horizontal and vertical injection this creates a solid watertight barrier and fully protected wall/s.

Step 6. The wall which has been injected can then be rendered and skimmed (if required). Blue Magic Crystal recommends using dehumidifier for a minimum of 7-14 days to dry the wall.

NOTE TO BOTH METHODS:

 

During the de-humidification period salts may appear to form on the brick surface which is a good sign of the brickwork drying out. Process is called “efflorescence” and depends on the salt content in the building materials used during construction of the property.

 

A good drying period of around 8 weeks is highly recommended before painting otherwise salts may prevent the adhesion of paint. We do not recommend using any vinyl, latex or oil based paint. During the 1st year we recommend only trade emulsion to be used to decorate walls and allow the drying process to run its course. Completed works are covered by a 20 year certificate of guarantee for the prevention of damp returning.
