Using Drizoro’s Maxplug, a quick setting cement-based mortar, seawater leaking into a vehicle lift pit while under construction was able to be stopped. Find out how the Drizoro range can help you on your next project.
Drizoro was able to identify, and plug, leaks in a vehicle lift pit by using Maxplug mixed with seawater. The easy to use Maxplug is a quick-setting cement-based mortar that instantly stops running water from cracks, holes or other openings in concrete, masonry, and other substrates. It is slightly expansive and does not shrink, starts hardening in a few seconds and sets within three to five minutes depending on the temperature of the mixed water. Supplied in grey powder form, the mortar only requires water for mixing.

Maxplug can be used for Instantly sealing leaks within concrete, solid masonry and other sound supports, emergency repairs on water pipes, plugging of gas leaks, sealing between slab and wall, cold joints between concrete slabs and anchoring bolts.
Before and after Maxplug was used to seal the leaks
As well as its uses, there are also many benefits to using Maxplug. This includes: not contracting or becoming weak due to its exothermic reaction, increasing in volume, controlling the rapid setting time by adding warm or cold water when mixing and mechanical properties that are comparable, and in some cases, exceed those of concrete. Setting underwater, the Maxplug does not contain chlorides and is non-toxic, making it safe for potable drinking water.
