Waterproofing with Liquid Plastic Injection

There have been a multitude of innovations regarding water proofing engineering and the materials that are used. One of the greatest developments has been the use of liquid plastic injection moulding to fill gaps and porous surfaces. Basically, liquid silicone is pumped into apertures at high pressure to ensure that it fills any space that may be present. The silicone then dries quickly into a rubbery consistency that is both durable and long wearing.

Because it can easily mould to fit any hole or space, it has a variety of applications in construction and building. It can also safely be applied to a variety of materials and surfaces from cement to your porcelain bathroom accessories.

This makes liquid plastic injection moulding ideal for sealing and joining pipes. It can be used successfully to repair existing underground cement pipes that are leaking due to the constant flow of water causing deterioration over time. Leaks in underground pipes are common but can lead to disastrous health and safety issues. It is therefore important to ensure the constant upgrade and maintenance of the pipes and the water delivery systems that are used in our cities and towns.

Basically, wherever you need to keep water out or in, liquid plastic injection moulding can successfully be used to water proof just about anything. Just remember to get the right advice and use the right tools in the application process to ensure that your items are sealed properly. An improper seal will leak giving rise to damp and resulting in mould growth that can be dangerous to your health. If your seals are leaking, have them professionally removed and resealed by a professional.
