Since 1979, Kimia has produced a complete range of products for building restoration, recovery and maintenance. With twenty years of specialization, it can offer truly dynamic products. In fact, Kimia is constantly updating its lines of products to respond promptly to new problems related to building recovery and restoration and to keep up with the technological progress being applied in the construction field. In addition, the reliability of Kimia products has been confirmed by the worst kind of test: the architectural heritage damaged by the earthquake in 1984 and consolidated with Kimia products was not touched in the least by the earthquakes that years later - starting in September of 1997 - once again violently struck the territory of Umbria and the Marches.
Kimitech EP-IN is a two-component, low viscosity, liquid, epoxy resin that creates structural adhesion with concrete, steel, wood, and stone materials. Extremely high wetting power, Kimitech EP-IN is ideal for impregnating high grammage fabrics and tapes and easily penetrates cracks and micro-fractures (up to 0.3 mm thick). CE marked accordng to EN 1504-4.
Injections into damaged structures (reinforced concrete, wood, masonry) to restore 100% monolithic structural integrity and obtain the necessary static properties. Vertical and oblique anchoring with high sheer resistance. Restoration of missing parts and consolidation of load-bearing wood structures with specific application properties (contact our Technical Support Service). Restoration of concrete floors at expansion joints or areas subject to greater stress. It is used in combination with Kimifill to obtain spreadable, epoxy mortars suitable for the building of continuous flooring with high compressive strength and resistance to abrasion, chemical attack and collision. Structural reinforcement for vaults, masonry, and reinforced concrete using composite fabric and tape systems from the Kimitech range. Structural alterations and consolidation of reinforced concrete using the “Béton-Plaqué” techique(strengthening using steel plates).
