Physical and Technical Data
EPOXY-SLV is a 100% solids, high-modulus, moisture-insensitive, very lowviscosity epoxy adhesive for gravity feed or pressure injection of cracks in
C-881 Gel Time
C-884 Thermal Compatibility
D-2240 Shore D Hardness
EPOXY-SLV primary use is for pressure injection and gravity feed crack
repair in concrete and masonry. EPOXY-SLV can also be used to heal and
seal concrete slabs.
• High modulus, high strength adhesive
• Super low viscosity for deep penetration
• Moisture insensitive
• High chemical resistance
• Zero VOC’s
• ASTM C881 (Type I, II, IV, V. Grade 1. Class B & C.)
• AASHTO M235
Cracks to be bonded must be clean and sound. Remove all dirt, grease,
oil, and other foreign material that may prevent a good bond. The
crack may be damp or dry, but free of standing water. Use clean, oil
free, compressed air to blow out any remaining dust or debris prior to
• CARTRIDGE: Remove the protective cap from the adhesive cartridge
and insert the cartridge into the recommended dispensing tool. Before
attaching the mixing nozzle, balance the cartridge by dispensing a
small amount of material until both components are flowing evenly.
Attach the provided flow restrictor, screw the provided mixing nozzle
on to the cartridge (do not modify mixing nozzle). Confirm that internal
mixing element is in place prior to dispensing adhesive. Begin squeezing
a small amount of material from the mixing nozzle onto a disposable
surface until the material extruded is a smooth uniform color with no
streaks. Material with an off color or streaking is not properly mixed and
will not set properly or perform as expected. Do not use this part for
installation. Once the proper mixture is achieved, discard the material
that was initially extruded from the nozzle per federal, state, and local
regulations, then begin installation.
• BULK: Mix equal volumes of Component A and Component B for 3
minutes with a low speed drill (300 rpm), jiffy mixer, or paddle. Mix only
what can be used during the pot life.

• First prepare the surfaces adjacent to the cracks to expose clean, sound
concrete. The injection ports should be spaced from 8” to 36” apart,
depending on the crack width and the thickness of the member to be
injected. Next, the crack should be sealed at the surface with EPOXYGEL FAST at a paste width of 1.5” on each side of the crack. After the
EPOXY-GEL FAST has cured, inject EPOXY-SLV epoxy with pressurized
dispensing equipment or use the EPOXY-SLV cartridges. EPOXY-SLV
cartridges are only designed for small repair projects with cracks at
least 1/16” in width or larger. For large projects and/or crack widths
less than 1/16”, use EPOXY-SLV bulk units with automated dispensing
equipment. Please contact Aquafin for additional guidance and
Binding Mortar and Grout for Patching
• Premix entire unit of A and B or exact portions, 2 parts A to 1 part B
by volume, with low speed (300 rpm) Jiffy mixer for 3 minutes. Hold
back some neat resin for priming patch. Paint concrete to be patched
with just enough neat resin to wet out the surface. Slowly add ovendried aggregate (typically 4-5 parts of aggregate to 1 part epoxy)
to the mixed epoxy while mixing with a slow speed Jiffy mixer, being
careful not to mix in air. Prepared mortar must be placed before primer
becomes tack free. Epoxy mortar may be placed and leveled with
trowels. Do not disturb patch until it is fully cured.

• Inspect and Seal underside of slab prior to filling reflective cracks. Pour
neat EPOXY-SLV into crack, continuing placement until crack is full. It may
be necessary to “V”-notch cracks to aid in placement.
Use the table below to determine minimum cure times based on the
temperature of the materials and the substrate.
Average Temperature of Materials & Substrate (°F)
*Set times are merely averages, site conditions will dictate actual cure response.
EQUIPMENT: Uncured material can be removed with approved solvent.
Cured material can only be removed mechanically.
MATERIAL: Collect with absorbent material. Flush area with water. Dispose
of in accordance with local, state and federal disposal regulations.
• Do not thin with solvents
• Compressed air equipment must have an oil/air separator.
• Minimum age of concrete must be 28 days before applying.
• Always test a small amount to ensure that the product is mixed properly
and that the material will harden properly before proceeding with the
• Do not inject cracks wider than ¼” without contacting Aquafin.
• Surface temperatures must be 40°F or above.
• Do not expose stored or uncured product to cold or freezing
temperatures below 35°F for any length of time.
• Consult Aquafin representative when mixing or placing outside of the
temperature recommendations listed.
Storage and Shelf Life:
Shelf Life: 2 years in original unopened container
Storage: 40°F to 95°F in dry and dark conditions
Temperature Considerations: IMPORTANT! Epoxy resins are temperature
sensitive and care should be taken to condition all components to between
65°F to 85°F for a minimum of 24 hrs. prior to mixing and placement.
Temperatures colder than stated range increase viscosity of resins and
inhibit mixing and flow of materials. Temperatures warmer than stated
range decrease viscosity of resins, hasten the cure and reduce the working
time. Mixing and curing at less than ideal temperatures, <60°F or >95°F,
will require special considerations.
Refer to SDS. For commercial use only. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Wear rubber gloves and safety goggles during mixing and application.
After contact with skin, wash with plenty of water. In case of eye contact,
rinse immediately with plenty of water for 15 minutes and seek medical
advice. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
