Microemulsion for slow diffusion anti-rising damp chemical barriers

Code: CSX.0023

Components: 1

Appearance: Liquid

One-component silane-based system modified for the preparation, with the sole addition of water, of water repellent microemulsions for slowly spreading masonry injections against capillary rising damp or using a pump with low operating pressure (0.5 to 1.5 bar), specific for the construction of chemical barriers in masonry, brick, tufa, stone and mixed, of varied thicknesses.

The injection of CONSILEX INJECT MAUER can be made using a pump with low operating pressure (0.5 to 1.5 bar) or else via drop-down and slow diffusion using special graduated bags (BARRIER BAG) and injection tubes (BARRIER TUBE D26). The slow diffusion, carried out with the accessories mentioned above is specifically designed to facilitate the deep and complete interpenetration of the formulation into the porosity of the material, even without mechanised pumping systems being set up. Being deprived of its source of damp, the masonry above the operation will gradually and slowly yield its residual moisture content by evaporation. Since this process can crystallise the salts contained in the masonry, bleaching and saline efflorescence effects may occur on the surface of the exposed masonry or plaster with accentuated phenomena of superficial degradation. Thus, for plastered masonry that has become compromised, completing a cycle of dehumidifying plastering is recommended, using UNTERSANA, SANATIGH or SANASTOF for example. For exposed masonry, it is recommended to allow the salts to vent throughout the summer period and then, if necessary, complete the operation with a water-based surface water repellent treatment such as CONSILEX ALTRAIN WV.


From 3.5 to 4 litres of CONSILEX INJECT MAUER in solution 1:10 per linear metre of 10 cm thick masonry. Calculate the consumption in proportion to the thickness of the masonry to be restored.

Use fields

Construction of slow diffusion chemical barriers or using a pump with low operating pressure (0.5 to 1.5 bar) against capillary rising damp in brickwork, tufa, stone and mixed, of varying thickness.

Preparation of supports

In the event that injection is performed with pumping systems, the hole usually has a diameter of 12 mm, being able to accommodate the rubber and steel injector. If the injection is carried out by slow diffusion, the drill bit must be 30 mm to permit the insertion and housing of the BARRIER TUBE D26 cardboard tubes, connected externally via the specific polyethylene BARRIER BAGS and their tubes, as better described in the product data sheets.

Use method

Pour the prepared mixture into the mechanised pumping system or fill the previously-prepared containment BARRIER BAGS until the quantity of the necessary mixture has been completely absorbed. In normal absorption conditions, masonry with a thickness of about 40 centimetres will soak up about 16 litres of the 1:10 solution for each metre in length.
Once fully absorbed:
- if using pumping systems, remove the injectors and putty the holes;
- if using the drop-down system, remove the bags and tubes installed, leaving the cartridges “to be lost” in the holes, which will then need to be properly filled completely and puttied on the surface with cement- and/or lime-based mortar.
