Polyurethane Resin rescues Ballina Fire Station

Sound the Alarm!
CIW Install Top Quality Polyurethane Resin by Neoferma to rescue the Ballina Fire Station.

Ballina Council has converted the historic Ballina Fire Station premises into a Community Arts Centre after being active for over 80 years. Unfortunately the old station was experiencing water ingress that urgently needed attention. A polyurethane resin sealant was required; but which product is most suited to a heritage listed property?

The CIW Remedial team were engaged to stop the ground water ingress into the historic engine pit to prevent any further damage. We got in touch with Neoferma to specify a polyurethane resin suitable for refurbishment works on the heritage listed building.

Neoferma and CIW to the rescue!

Neoferma have just introduced a new range of Polyurethane Resins and Acrylics – PUR-X and ACRYL-X. The PUR-X range has a multitude of benefits including variable reaction times, rigid and flexible foams and gels, permanent solutions as well as being eco-friendly.

We are happy to report that this emergency situation has been extinguished. The Fire Station is saved. Our team successfully completed the project using Hydrophilic Polyurethane Resins as specified by Neoferma.

Waterproof Leaks and Cracks With PUR-X Polyurethane Resins and Acrylics

One product in particular from Neoferma is PUR-X 300 which is an MDI based hydrophilic, one-component flexible polyurethane injection resin for waterproofing joints and cracks. In contact with the water the resin reacts and expands forming a permanent seal inside the leaking crack or construction joint.

The PUR-X Polyurethane resins range includes;

PUR-X 100 – Rigid Hydrophobic Injection Resin

PUR-X 100 is a 1-component, hydrophobic, water reactive, solvent and phthalate free, low viscosity polyurethane injection resin. In contact with water the PUR-X 100 will expand and react into a rigid closed cell foam. After full cure, the product will set as a permanent seal inside a crack joint, guaranteeing a long lasting waterproofing solution.

PUR-X 200 – Flexible Hydrophobic Injection Resin
PUR-X 200 performs the same as PUR-X 100 however will remain flexible with contact with water.

PUR-X 300 – Flexible Hydrophilic Injection Resin
PUR-X 300 is an MDI based hydrophilic, one component flexible polyurethane injection resin for waterproofing joints and cracks. In contact with water the resin reacts and expands forming a permanent seal inside the leaking crack or construction joint.

The ACRYL-X Polyurethane Acrylics range includes;

ACRYL-X 1000
ACRYL-X 1000 is a non-toxic aqueous solution of multifunctional acrylic monomers. The resin gels in a few seconds to a few minutes when an activator/initiator is added just before use. The final product is a soft and tacky cross-linked gel. In wet, or dry conditions, the volume of the gel increases, or decreases, in a reversible and waterproofing manner.

ACRYL-X 2000
ACRYL-X 2000 is a non-toxic aqueous solution of multifunctional acrylic monomers. The reaction time can be modified to meet conditions from a few seconds to a few minutes when an activator/initiator is added prior to use. The final product is a soft and tacky cross-linked gel. In wet, or dry conditions, the volume of the gel increases, or decreases, in a reversible and waterproofing manner.

ACRYL-X 3000
ACRYL-X 3000 is a non-toxic aqueous solution of multifunctional acrylic monomers. The resin gels in a few seconds, to a few minutes when an activator/initiator is added just before use. The final product is a soft and tacky cross-linked gel. In wet, or dry conditions, the volume of the gel increases, or decreases, in a reversible and waterproofing manner.

Based on extensive global experience these products are Safe, Eco-friendly, and practical. We couldn’t ask for better.
