Stop Groundwater Infiltration with Prime Resins’ Convenient, New Kit

Prime Resins introduced its Prime Cell Kit for stopping groundwater infiltration, primarily in manhole, culvert and stormwater structure applications. 

The kit’s main component is Soakem Oakum, a dry oakum soaked into a hydrophilic polymer solution. When wet and either packed or worked into a joint or crack, the resin will foam to form a flexible and tight joint to stop groundwater infiltration.  

It reacts with water and becomes a watertight, rubber-like, non-toxic composite. The oakum cord gives strength and density to the composite and makes the application of the resin easier, especially when gushers are present. 

In addition to one, 10-foot strip of Soakem Oakum, the kit includes 48 ounces of resin, two insertion sticks and eight pairs of vinyl gloves.
