SikaDur® 52 Injection Type N
As an injection resin with good adhesion to concrete, mortar, stone, steel and wood.
Sikadur®-52 Injection Type N is used to fill and seal voids and cracks in structures such as bridges and other civil engineering buildings, industrial and residential buildings, e.g. columns, beams, foundations, walls, floors and water retaining structures. It not only forms an effective barrier against water infiltration and corrosion promoting media, but it also structurally bonds the concrete sections together.
- Suitable for both, dry and damp conditions
- Usable at low temperatures
- Shrinkage free hardening
- High mechanical and adhesive strengths
- Hard but not brittle
- Low viscosity
- Injectable with single component pumps

Consumption / Yield:
1 kg of Sikadur®-52 Injection Type N is ~ equal to 1 l injection resin.
Requirements: Sound, clean, free from oil and grease, old coatings and surface treatments etc. Pre-treatment for good bond: Concrete, mortar, stone should be thoroughly prepared by high pressure water jetting or mechanical means such as grinding, chiselling etc. Cracks must be cleaned to remove dust with compressed air.
Application Conditions / Limitations:
Substrate Temperature +5°C min. / +30°C max.
Substrate Humidity Dry or damp (SSD - Saturated Surface Dry: no standing water)
ratio A: B = 2: 1 parts by weight and by volume
Add all of part B to part A. Mix with an electric mixer at slow speed (max. 250 rpm) for at least 3 minutes. Avoid entraining air.
Add both parts in the correct proportion into a suitable clean, dry container and mix in the same way as for the pre-batched units.
Application Method / Tools:
Cracks in horizontal slabs:
Saturate a few times using a brush or gravity fill them by pouring mixed Sikadur®-52 Injection Type N between two “dams” e.g. made from Sikaflex® sealant. Cracks penetrating slabs to their soffit should first be sealed on the
underside, e.g. with Sikadur®-31 epoxy mortar or a suitable cementitious Sika mortar.
Cracks in vertical structures:
Mixed Sikadur®-52 Injection Type N can be injected under pressure into the cracks using a single component injection pump, such as the Aliva AL-1200, AL-1250 or the Sika® Hand Pump. Injection ports (packers) are set at approx. 25 cm intervals beside the crack and the crack between the injection ports (packers) sealed e.g. with Sikadur®-31 to prevent injection resin to escape during the injection process.
Vertical cracks should always be injected from the bottom upwards. As soon as injection resin oozes out of the next packer / injection port, the first one is sealed and the injection process continued from the next one. After completion of the injection process, the injection ports (packers) as well as the sealing material between the ports are removed.
Cleaning of Tools:
Clean all tools and application equipment with Sika® Colma-Cleaner/Thinner C immediately after use. Hardened / cured material can only be mechanically removed.
Temperature Normal Type (1 kg mixture)
- +5°C ~ 120 minutes
- +10°C ~ 80 minutes
- +23°C ~ 25 minutes
- +30°C ~ 10 minutes
- +40°C -
Notes on Application / Limitations:
Maximum width of cracks to be injected: 5 mm.
Sikadur®-52 Injection Type N is suitable for dry and damp, but not for wet injection conditions.
