ETI  Injection Epoxy


ETI injection epoxies are specially designed formulations for the injection of
cracks in concrete. ETI epoxies are two-component, high-solids formulations.
They are available in side-by-side cartridges and are dispensed through a
static mixing nozzle using a standard dispensing tool. ETI is available in three
viscosities: ETI-LV (low viscosity), ETI-GV (gel viscosity) and ETI-SLV (super-
low viscosity) to handle a wide range of crack widths. Properly installed, they
provide a repair that is both waterproof and high strength (structural).
FEATURES:
• Chemically bonds with the concrete to provide a structural repair
(meets the requirements of ASTM C-881 as a structural repair epoxy)
• Seals the crack from moisture, protecting rebar in the concrete from
corrosion and flooring from moisture damage
• All viscosities formulated for maximum penetration under pressure
• Side-by-side cartridge dispensing provides reliable mixing and ratio
control when used with the Opti-Mix® static mixing nozzle
• Eliminates the need for expensive bulk dispensing equipment
• Suitable for pressure injection or gravity-feed applications
ETI-LV ETI-GV ETI-SLV
• Non-shrink material resistant to oils, salts and mild chemicals
ETI-SLV Super-Low Viscosity Injection Epoxy
• Super-low viscosity (350cps) for repair of hairline cracks
and cracks up to 1⁄4"
• Penetrates the smallest cracks
• Suitable for structural repairs
ETI-LV Low Viscosity Injection Epoxy
• Low viscosity epoxy (1790 cps) for repair of fine to medium
width cracks 1⁄64"–1⁄4" in width
• Low surface tension allows the material to effectively penetrate

4. First-Aid Measures
General Information
Provide general supportive measures and treat symptomatically. Symptoms may be delayed. Ensure that medical personnel
are aware of the material(s) involved, and take precautions to protect themselves. If exposed or concerned: Get medical
advice/attention. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.
Routes of Exposure
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of cool water for at least 15 minutes while holding
the eyes open. Remove contact lenses if present and easy to do. If redness, burning,
blurred vision, or swelling persists, consult a physician.

SAFETY DATA SHEET
Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing and product, immediately wash affected area with soap
and water. Do not apply greases or ointments. If skin irritation persists consult a
physician.
Ingestion: Rinse mouth immediately. Give large amounts of milk or water, if person is conscious.
Only induce vomiting at the instruction of medical personnel. Consult a physician.
Inhalation: Remove patient to fresh air. Give oxygen or artificial respiration if needed. If patient
continues to experience difficulty breathing, consult a physician.
Most Important Symptoms
Irritant effects. Sensitization. Symptoms include itching, burning, redness and tearing. May cause damage to mucous
membranes in nose, throat, lungs and bronchial system. Cough. Labored breathing. Shortness of breath. Prolonged contact
causes serious eye and tissue damage. Visual disturbances including blurred vision. May cause serious chemical burns to the
skin. May cause burns in mucous membranes, throat, esophagus and stomach.
5. Fire-Fighting Measures
Suitable Extinguishing Media: Extinguish with foam, carbon dioxide, dry powder, or water fog.
Additional Information: None known.
Hazards during Fire-Fighting: Hazardous decomposition products may occur when materials polymerize at
temperatures above 500 °F (260°C). Irritating and toxic gases/fumes may be released
during a fire. Water run-off can cause environmental damage. Do not allow run-off from
fire-fighting to enter drains or water courses.
Fire-Fighting Procedures: Use standard fire-fighting procedures and consider the hazards of other involved
materials. In case of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes. Self-contained breathing
apparatus and full protective clothing must be worn. Move containers from fire area if
you can do so without risk. Cool containers with flooding quantities of water until well
after fire is out. Prevent runoff from fire control or dilution from entering streams,
sewers, or drinking water supply.
6. Accidental Release Measures
Personal Precautions
Keep unnecessary personnel away. Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks, or flames in immediate area).
Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing
appropriate protective clothing. Avoid inhalation of vapors or mists. Ensure adequate ventilation. Local authorities should be
advised if significant spillages cannot be contained.
Clean-Up Methods
Small spills: Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece). Place in leak-proof containers. Seal
tightly for proper disposal. Clean surface thoroughly to remove residual contamination.
Large spills: Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Dike far ahead of spill for later disposal.
Use a non-combustible material like vermiculite, sand or earth to soak up the product.
Place in leak-proof containers. Seal tightly for proper disposal. Following product
recovery, flush area with water. Prevent entry into waterways, sewer, basements or
confined areas.
Environmental Precautions
Avoid release to the environment. Contact local authorities in case of spillage to drain/aquatic environment. Prevent further
leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
7. Handling and Storage
Handling
Mechanical ventilation or local exhaust ventilation is recommended. Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources
of ignition. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Avoid contact with
eyes, skin, and clothing. Observe good industrial hygiene practices.
Storage
Store in a closed container away from incompatible materials. Keep in original container. Keep container tightly closed. Store
in a dry place out of direct sunlight. Store between 45-90°F (7-32°C). Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Store in a
well-ventilated place. Store locked up. Keep out of the reach of children.

8. Exposure Controls / Personal Protection
Personal Protective Equipment
Protective Measure: Wear appropriate personal protective equipment.
Eye Protection: Wear chemical splash goggles or safety glasses with side shield.
Hand Protection: Wear chemical-resistant gloves such as: Nitrile, neoprene, butyl.
Skin and Body Protection: Wear long sleeve shirt/long pants and other clothing as required to minimize contact.
Respirator Protection: If engineering controls do not maintain airborne concentrations below recommended
exposure limits (where applicable) or to an acceptable level (in countries where exposure
limits have not been established), an approved respirator must be worn.
General Hygiene: Always observe good personal hygiene measures, such as washing after handling the
material and before eating, drinking, and/or smoking. Routinely wash work clothing and
protective equipment to remove contaminants.
Engineering Controls
Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to
conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne
levels below recommended exposure limits. If exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an
acceptable level. Provide eyewash station.
